I didn’t get a real workout in today – too much ranch work on the agenda. I did, however, have time to play around with the kettlebell for a little bit. I saw the following video from Rob Orlando on his strongmanwod.com site this morning and I immediately popped downstairs and tried out the kettlebell halos and the kettlebell figure eights.
I also found this video from Steve Cotter on the kettlebell clean. I had watched it before my previous kettlebell workout this week, but I did not try the technique he suggests by cheat curling the bell and then doing the clean in reverse. I tried that today and hey-presto! I am now able to do a clean without smashing the bell into my forearms.
It’s amazing what happens when you actually listen to the directions.
