Say Yes.

“Tell him yes. Even if you are dying of fear, even if you are sorry later, because whatever you do, you will be sorry all the rest of your life if you say no.” ― Gabriel Garcí­a Márquez

On Thursday I tried Kettle Bells for the first time. Amazing how the olympic movements with the barbell can translate into intricate movements with the Kettlebell. It is good to switch up the schedule, but then hard to know which if any of the days count to a ‘rest’ day, if you are working within the 3 days on, 1 day off mindset.


I. Barbell Gymnastics:

Snatch – 10 x 1 @ 80%

*Rest 60 seconds between sets

Completed: at 70lbs. Love the Every Minute On the Minute rounds. Great method of focusing on form.

II. Conditioning:


Kettlebell Swings (70/53)



Completed: in 9:57. Originally reached for the 35lbs. Kettlebell. But knew I was being a woos. So put the 35lbs. back on the shelf and used the 45lbs. So glad I said yes to the challenge of a heavier weight. All reps, while at max effort, still completed unbroken.
