HKC the beginning

Having just returned from the first ever HKC all I have to say is WOW! We rocked 120 participants with 4 Master RKCs, 8 Senior RKCs and 1 evil Russian. They never stood a chance. Mark my words the RKC will take over the kettlebell and fitness world. There will be very exciting news very shortly about future HKCs.

The HKC is going to be a good farm system for the RKC. In the end it will turn out more even high quality RKCs. By giving HKC participants a little taste of how the RKC runs a certification. They will come into the RKC better prepared. I feel this will also eliminate the kettlebell newbie from showing up to the RKC to learn kettlebells. Then having to leave beat down after the first day because they bit off more than they could chew.

Today's training 32kg military press 10 sets of 5 R/L

Tough day for a Thursday

I had class at 6am on the beach. After that I came home and Laura and I went to the beach to chill for an hour or so. While we sat there we decided to train. Went to the truck and grabbed some bells and trained. Followed by coffee, emails and a 30min nap. Laura headed off to afternoon classes. I hit the store made dinner and taught my night class. On the way past the house grabbed Laura and went to see Inglourious Basterds (WOW). We headed home and called it a day. Like I said REALLY TOUGH DAY!!!

PS the pic is of the beach we trained on.

Schedule changes

A few changes to the schedule:

-I will no longer be having classes on Wednesdays in Ventura.
-Starting the first week of October I will be doing Monday and Wednesday night classes at 6PM at Fueled Sports Performance . (The address on there is incorrect. They recently moved onto State St., between Haley St. and Cota St., near the open Indian Market).
-I will announce soon where my Tuesday and Thursday night classes will be held. Until then, they are still at Marina Park.

this is crazy!`


Last night hit the beach for some double training. I joined my class for a little fun. Groups of three I go you go style session. Here is the workout, simple and fast. Doubles of the following 5 swings, 5 cleans, 5 front squats and 5 presses=one set, rest while the other 2 people work that = one round. We went for 5 rounds and some get ups and called it a night.

New site

It's about time I finally have a website. Thank you to Adam and Laura who busted their butts to get it done. Being the technical wizard that I am, I offered up ideas like "that looks good" and the ever informative "sounds good to me". This resulted in a really cool site so please check it out.

Playing with my new friend

I picked up a beast in San Diego ( which in German means whale's vagina). I picked up an Beast hell yeah. Yesterday I took it to my beach class to show them what a really big bell looks and feels like. Several people did a few swings but that is all. I did 2 sets of 1 R/L military press with the goal being sets of 3 R/L. I will be greasing the groove to get there.

GREAT THOR's HAMMER have a good day!

Lesson learned

Yesterday I learned a good lesson. I had the bright idea to wash some dishes and do swings between each dish washed. 32kg bell, 5 dishes, 20 swings = 100 swings and dishes done. Well that was all fine and good for the first 3 dishes. After dish 4 magically I had two blisters on the hand I did the scrubbing with. Imagine that have your hand soaking wet while cleaning dishes would make it want to bubble up when swinging 70 pounds from it. Well I learned my lesson no more dishes!!!
