Andrea Du Cane's awesome Kettlebell Goddess Workout DVD (run time: 2 hours, 25 minutes)
Good friend and fellow Tallahassee Kettlebells could have considered itself a small city. Anyhow it was super cool to hear all about it - and how the TAC team really did well learning the swing, squats, etc. Needless to say, if you're anywhere near Tallahassee, you know THE place to train with kettlebells. This also means that there are a TON of of all sizes there - up to... THE . In a previous post from this weekend that I wrote haphazardly in a sleepy fog (need to go back and possibly make some grammar corrections!) I'd mentioned doing some swings. Having tried it and liked it the previous day, it was time to turn it into a little workout. Even if you don't have a , choose something very large for this if you're ready for it. If not, that's cool too - but here's what I did on Sunday (after practicing random things on gymnastic rings, and some of the MovNat climbing skills - gotta love those...):Instructor, Laurel and I had a whole lot of fun this past weekend at her gym. She'd had a HUGE week - when she donated a training session to the Tallahassee Police TAC team - they showed up and apparently so did the , and the local news, and and... it sounded like if someone had showed up with a food truck,

Then starting with the heaviest, I did 10 swings of each size (and she has all the in-between sizes too... aahh!!!) so it went , , , , , , , , , and - which by this time felt so weird it was surreal.
Amusing Sidenote: doing the heavy swings has actually had some kind of bizarre psychological effect on me - its like... the spell is broken or something, I know what to expect and now EVERYTHING feels so much lighter. Today I knocked out some very solid swings with the newI brought back for my collection (and for the class), and it wasn't a big deal to me. Look out world... LOOK OUT.

We caught a lot of this on video as well as some random fun things. Including an exercise that Laurel and I think may not have been captured on video yet - at least we weren't able to think of anyone who had done it - and we were pretty sure... a search of youtube turned up a similar lack of this particular combination thing. But you'll have to wait until I get all the video clips put together. Of course it was a very good thing that we had snacks with us, I had quite a bit of high protein yum things from Ostrim and Perky Jerky - this kept us sane, but we still ended up eating an amazing amount of eggs, bacon, beef and bison over the weekend too.... GOOD TIMES! :)
