the third

There is change( a 10lb plate on each side but its ok.). I will do a 140kg one arm deadlift successfully in the near future. These are fun.

The Arnold < 2 weeks

The excitement is palpable.

Kettlebell lifters from all over will partake it what I think to be the biggest US Kettlebell meet in history.

Totally separate from this competition I will start video taping my sets more. I have a video of a 6 minute set for 5 rpm for 30 reps LC in 6 minutes.

The other day for a demo, did 32 reps in 5 minutes. I felt ok for the set.

"getting comfortable with discomfort" is right on specific to changing the pace that we are used to. Dropping slightly back on the duration and amping up the pace is not a natural feeling. But ultimately it brings us to the next level.

Stay tuned for videos in the very near future.

Video from The EDGE Seminar

End of the Day Set

Seminar at the Edge!

Great potential. Ross Gilling before kettlebells is a high level Rugby player if you haven't checked out his background.
In Long Cycle he is coming up strong with a 35 reps 5 minutes PR with 2 24kgs. Everyone did very well in picking up the technique. Stay tuned. There will be a certification forthcoming at the EDGE and a Kettlebell meet. The date is TBD.
