Double Trouble Workout - short but not easy

It was finally nice outside again today, my little dog and I decided to go to the park so she could chew on toys and dig holes, and so that I could workout...

Do your joint mobility warm up exercises you hopefully learned from your RKC instructor, do 20 good two handed warm up swings with one kettlebell, then set your handy Gymboss timer for:

 

10 rounds of 30 second intervals: so that you can do the following:

Double kettlebell swings 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off (5 work sets)

For the last set, feel free to use 1 kettlebell as some kind of strange cooldown

 

Take a 1-2 minute break then restart your Gymboss and do:

Double Kettlebell Cleans 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off (5 work sets)

Tim Shuman, RKCII Interviewed Sunday December 12, 2010

Adrienne Harvey, RKC:  So how did you first discover kettlebells?

Tim Shuman, RKCIII got a flyer from John DuCane. He sent me a flyer saying I can get Enter The Kettlebell and two 16Kilo kettlebells for about $109. And apparently he'd gotten my name off an e-mail list when I was using Pavel's bodyweight books, Power to the People, From Russia with Tough Love, those types of things.

Presses, Pull ups, Squats and the fun of going heavier... (Saturday Part 2) Orlando RKC Recap

Following yet another strictly timed and much needed break, we came back to learn about the Press as introduced and taught by RKC Team Leader Cortez Hull.   The proper performance of a kettlebell military press is highly dependent on the quality of the clean used to get the kettlebell to the pressing (rack) position - so it was obvious as to why we had learned the clean first.  It is commonly said by RKCs that the press is only as good as the clean - and this is absolutely the case - a bad clean that throws you off balance or worse will definitely not set up a powerful (or even successful) press.   Further discussion yielded differences in grip for the press vs the jerk - in the press, the handle of the kettlebell should be parallel to the calluses as oppos

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...
