First off, my goal with training is to find my version of balance. This includes strength, flexibility, mobility, conditioning, lean factor and overall long term health and well being. Therefore I need to have in place activities that support this. I know what they are even if I fight them.
1. Yoga and Meditation
2. Bodyweight basics
4. Hike, Run or Mountain bike....being outdoors
As for number 4, they can float all around but I need some consistency in this area. Number 1 encompasses number 2 and number 2 builds off of number 1...but yoga and meditation are clear number 1. And number 3 is just a great compliment to all the above.
So today I got back on track with a strong kettlebell training session. Plus, I had a great group of men to train with and this helped.
Swing, 1 arm
48/5/5 x 3
32/5/5 x 1 purpose was overspeed work controlling the forces
Worked on keeping the shoulder packed and reducing the forces on the body with l.i.c.s approach.
2 hand swing
40/10 x 5
Put an emphasis on breathing, in through the nose on the down swing, out through the mouth on the up swing.
Clubbells Arm Cast
3 x 8
Working on creating tension from the beginning, corkscrewing the arm and locking the lats in for full engagement.
Hollow Body Rock
10 x 4
Single band 10 x 2
Double band 8 x 2
Eliminate the Unnecessary, simplicity is crucial. This day was exactly that and I loved it. Feel grounded, with a clear direction and ready for more :)
