Team Rif

How lucky am I? Since my schedule has changed recently, I'm going to take advantage of living with "The World's Greatest Personal Trainer" (inside joke for those that attended my Cert, lol), and not only get some of the greatest coaching available, but I get to have a great training partner! In fact, my training has reached a different level these days and Mark will help put some structure and balance back into it.
But until then.....I stuck with some simple combination KB sets, alternating the 12kg, and the 16kg, equal work to equal rest ratio, because I'm working on a workout DVD and I wanted to experiment with time/weight/combinations, etc.. Since this ratio is not usually that challenging for me, (that's why I chose to alternate weight), I really worked on my form and extending all swings to get maximum benefits.



I'll post the exact combinations later today..... But since I know my workout was 68 minutes long, equal work to equal rest translates to 40 reps per min of work x 34 = 1360 swings. (680 w/12kg & 680 w/16kg).

Swings are good!

gabby,

I used to dream about winning "The Next Food Network Star"! But I'd have to be able to bring my kettlebells with me and have time to train! That's more important!
