Can you find my RKC comments?

Dragon Door posted their recap of many of our comments and feedback about the RKC weekend experience - Can you find my comments? I'll give you a hint - there's a joke about something in the 1990s... And not to worry, I am still busy writing up the day by day recaps - the 2nd half of Friday is almost done!!

A mish-mash workout with a good friend

A good friend of mine, and fellow kettlebell enthusiast joined me today for a lunchtime workout.  She has taken a new job which requires a LOT of heavy lifting (of people) in a medical setting - and had missed some heavy kettlebell lifting, as well as some intense cardio.   Here's what we did:

 

Short-style "Das Kettle"

1 Get Up each side

10 2 hand swings

1 clean, 5 presses on the right side, 1 clean, 5 presses on the left side

1 clean, 5 front squats on the right side, 1 clean 5 front squats left side (or 10 goblet squats)

5 snatches each side

Do this with your lightest bell, then move up, and up, then up again if you can.  For example here's what we did:

A 300 workout...

After the movie 300 came out there was a lot of buzz in various magazines, blogs etc. about the 300 Workout which the cast of the movie was purported to have used to get in marvelous shape.   Rumors formed, theories abounded blah blah blah.   At the end of it, a lot of people were inspired to make up their own workout of 300 reps... and today I came up with one myself.   Adapted from one I saw online while clicking around... I changed out several of the exercises to make it more kettlebell focused.

Do three rounds as quickly (BUT SAFELY) as possible, resting when needed (keep MOVING during rest-taking... your heart will thank you).
