The Road to Re-Certification: StrongFirst Kettlebell 1: Week 17: Minimalism
Our new promo video we got done the other week. I thought I’d just drop it in. As you will see, everyone isn’t doing perfect reps. It’s a journey and everyone is at different stages. Keep progressing, keep practicing. Back to the story:
: a style or technique (as in music, literature, or design) that is characterised by extreme spareness and simplicity
I’m sitting in the lounge at Dubai airport waiting for our connecting flight to Italy.
I bought a 28kg kettlebell on-line in Italy . It has arrived at my first place of stay so the training continues. WoooHooooo.
Minimalism has been the order over the last 2 weeks.
My prep has been quite good. However, I did feel a cold/flu coming on so I backed right off.
I thought a minimalist approach would be best served right now, so I keep doing something without pushing the body over the edge.
Training has looked like this:
1 arm Swings 100 every morning 28kg bell first set 40 then 20 + 20 + 20 with around 10 seconds rest between sets.
Presses every minute or so 1 each side. My pressing is my worst lift due to my long levers so it’s what I practice the most.
Day B) Swings as above plus Get Ups again with the 28kg which is my SFG “Re-certing” weight.
Alternate between the 2 everyday.
Sunday morning before departure was Workout A, Swings easy, the first 3 sets of presses were a little rough, but once I found the groove I increased the reps to 2 each side. Doesn’t sound like much but for me that is good progress.
As you can see this is pure minimalism. Nothing left to take away.
This approach got me through the Cold/Flu issue. I managed to dodge it by being smart. I’m 55 yeah? I’ve been in this position so many times and have learnt that when your body is telling you to slow down, you listen!
And just like my training….so is this post……. Minimal. I’m off to Italia ragazzi. Ciao!!
