Fitness Log 2013-05-31: Mobility, kettlebells, etc.

Mobility/Kettlebell Training

Had another mobility/kettlebell session with the personal trainer that included:

30 sec work/30 sec rest x 2 w/ 18 kg:

  • Goblet squat
  • Two hand clean and press
  • One leg deadlift with row (right/left)
  • Two hand swing

Volume (effort/tension) drill:

  • 5 KB swings w/ 32 kg, 16 kg, 24 kg, 18 kg, 20 kg

The idea here was to move through each weight while attempting to maintain the exact same form for the swing regardless.

Made a big discovery on the swings — grip tension is important at the bottom.  I was letting the bell linger behind me because my loose grip was letting it swing.  Tightening up my grip locked my arms to the bell allowing me to cycle at the bottom faster.
