I so needed to see this post today. Time to get my butt back into high gear.
Hell of a bar you set, Tracy, awesome work. :)

It took me some time to upload the second video....the much more impressive sets #56-60, sorry you missed it!

Anyway, we all need a little butt-kicking sometimes.....I don't think I can get my butt kicked hard enough to catch you guys in the snatch race, however, lol!

I will get my 50,000 snatches though, rep by rep!

WOW that is super inspirational. Maybe someday I'll get there. Do you happen to have any beginner workout ideas for people just starting out and wanting to get stronger but mostly lose as much fat as possible.

Tracy Reifkind said...


I can't believe I did this two times in the same week! Next week back to the 12kg, for 36/36.

I can't wait until they make a 14kg KB.

I've got some beginners routines on my blog last year somewhere, lol, I think in the months between Feb-April. I wrote down the routines of one of my beginning clients at the time.

As far as fat loss, it really comes down to your diet first. This subject is much bigger than something than I can just "comment" on.

just wanted to tell you how much i love your blog. i just started kettlebells, so i dont really have any idea what im doing yet, but i love them! youre truly an inspiration and i can relate to all of your diet posts too. i would only like to lose about 10lbs and seeing how much you accomplished really motivates me to work hard

Tracy Reifkind said...


There's no such thing as "only" 10 pounds! LOL!

Scientically weight loss is simple...doing it "ain't easy"!

(That's one of Mark's phrases...."It's simple, but it ain't easy")

I did a double take when I realized you did 60 with the 16kg. Ouch! .. I better get back to some serious training. Inspirational indeed!
