My wife Danyelle & I are now doing our kettlebell workouts together. Today was my second week of training, under Danyelle’s tutelage, as she is the RKC instructor and the one writing our program.
Danyelle has been training consistently with kettlebells for more than two years. My training has been inconsistent over the last 5 months as I’ve been focusing on my new business. I’ve just recently re-begun my training so I’m experiencing a lot of soreness but it’s a good soreness.
Today’s workout kicked my butt. After getting home I was so tired that I took a three hour nap. I don’t remember the last time I had to take a nap from exhaustion.
We did a grueling two hour workout which included cleans and presses, windmills, arm bars, bottoms up, pistol squats, long cycle clean and jerk, bent over rows, squat to press, single leg dead lift, side press, snatches (+5 minute snatch test) and swings.
Beginning next week I’ll post my workout in detail including exercises, sets, reps & ESD (energy system development) specifics. I welcome any criticism from readers as my goals are to get, strong, powerful, move freely, prevent injuries, improve endurance and prepare for the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu BJJ Pan American Championships in Brazil in May 2011.
