More Training with the 115lb Kettlebell

Again we have Mike Davis DPT from Kettlebell Athletics Virgina performing a Pistol and a Pull-up with a 115lb kettlebell. Mike makes it look all to easy.

I'm proud to say that I was the first person to introduce Mike to kettlebell training. I believe that intproduction was made with a 16kg kettlebell.

Needless to say, Mike has made just a lil' bit of progress.

I have had the honor to learn from Jason at several different seminars and his instruction is elite. I have trained under several kettlebell tutors and Jason is second to none. His clear teaching methods and attention to detail make his class educational and enlightening. He is a master of technique and theory and is an open resource to all he teaches. Jason has always been willing to answer questions and give advice to me. His counsel has been invaluable to my development as a professional. I am proud to be his student and recommend him with the utmost confidence.

I Have Failed You All !!!!

This was our new challenge:

1 Swing
1 Burpee
2 Swings
2 Burpees

Ladder up to 10 Swings,10 burpees in under 5 Minutes.

I didn't make it: 5:41. I will redeem myself !

Some observations:

I never do anything well my first time. I will get 5:00 minutes, hopefully tomorrow.

Swings are easy, should have used the 32kg. Standard for men is 24kg, women is 16kg.

Too much Blue Monster.
