Visiting Fitcamp - a Workout for Cold (Florida) weather!

Much fun was had last night at Tim Shuman, RKCII's 6pm kettlebell Fitcamp...  first off, it was cold (which is probably laughable to people up North, but I am personally optimized for extreme heat, if it gets below 60 degrees I need a jacket), which to me is 50 Degrees F or below.   And girl genius here had ran out the door without socks on.  Fortunately I got there early and ran into the tennis pro shop... 


A Stacking Workout with Tim Shuman, RKCII of Fitcamp

Tim had a brutal little plan for us today - check out this seemingly simple but extremely effective workout:

  • 30 seconds left hand swings, 30 seconds right hand swings
  • 30 seconds left hand cleans, 30 seconds right hand cleans.

30 seconds rest

RKC Orlando 2010 Recap Part Five: Saturday Part 1

RKC Orlando 2010 Recap Part Four: Friday part 3

Following a short (strictly timed) 10 minute break we came back to our places on the unforgiving astroturf and got into 1 of 2 approved "learning positions" (yes, I know how this sounds, but there's a logic to it - neither of these put the body into flexion, and can help stretch in a gentle way, the one most of us chose had us on our bellies in something similar to a "cobra" pose in yoga, or the way you sometimes see children watch tv from the floor).   For some of us, this unusual position was the cause of some discomfort.

RKC Orlando 2010 Recap Part Three: Friday part 2

After the snatch test, we took a short break (literally, breaks would be approx 10 minutes and DON'T even think about being late....)
