RKC Orlando 2010 Recap Part One: Thursday Night

After getting settled in (and not having a confrontation with the VERY aggressive bell boys) at the Disney area, official hotel, I made sure to fire up my netbook to see about the wifi - little did I know that after Saturday I just wouldn't have it in me to type for a while.   Then, of course it was time to listen to a short list of "motivating songs" which are probably not motivating to anyone but me, and will not be named here because you will have proof of my "total weirdo" status.


What do you wish you'd brought, done, known etc, before the RKC Weekend???

Last night I tweeted, twittered, whatever you call it, a question to my fellow kettlebell maniac friends, a group which includes MANY people who are RKC certified.   Since I've read a good deal about what people bring to the RKC, and what they think they need etc, I thought I'd ask:


Hey RKCs! What do you wish you had known/done/brought with you to the #RKC certification weekend??? #kettlebell #certification


RKC Prep and the 10,000 Kettlebell Swing Challenge

Though I think that the majority of the 10,000 kettlebell swings will happen for me at the RKC weekend, I'm still participating in Tim Shuman, RKCII's annual month-long 10,000 swing challenge. If you do the math, it works out to approx 238 swings per day. In 2 days I am 500 swings into it, so right on track so far! He says to pick a "prize" at the end of it, and I've chosen a Samovar - which is amusingly appropriate.


Substitute taught a friend's fitness bootcamp classes last night - and here's their kettlebell workout!

While my super awesome fellow personal trainer friend Alicia Streger was out of town yesterday, I had the opportunity to lead her 6PM fitness bootcamp and her 7PM kettlebell bootcamp. WHAT A CHALLENGE! :) I love challenges though. Problem was, traffic and closed roads fought me all the way there and by the time I had arrived (with maybe 2-3 minutes to spare) I was staring down the barrel of 20+ people who were ready to workout. Fighting off the fluster of driving like James Bond as fast as I could I got them to do their warm up run around the track. When they came back it was time to GET DOWN TO BUSINESS...

Tonight an amazing thing happened... I did the snatch test without chalk, and without having my hands even slightly getting torn up.     Because for the past week, I have been shaving down the calluses on my hands daily with one of those silly "as seen on tv" Ped Eggs.
