Greetings friends. It’s Wednesday. It was another long one at work. At my job the work has cycles. Around this time of year the volume is really high. That’s not a bad thing, especially now. Denice and I have some financial recovering to do, so some overtime is appreciated. Of course I can always think of better uses for my time then being on the job, but when I need to be there I am there. I try to be in the moment and 100% at everything I do. Work hard and play hard.
I was talking to a friend at work today about kettlebell swings. I have been mulling over the prospect of buying a 40+ pound kettlebell. We have a set of them in the excercise room at work, but they only go up to 20 pounds. I expressed that I didn’t feel like I was getting much benefit from the kettlebells that we have. He does swings too, using the ones that are there, and says that they give him a really hard workout. This fellow is comparable size and strength to me, so I have concluded that I am simply doing the swings wrong.
In a wonderful case of synchronicity, another friend had just loaned me a multi-part DVD series that is solely about kettlebell exercises. Since I’m pretty sure that I am botching the technique, this is going to be very useful.
That’s all for now. Good night.
