So, today was kettlebell class. I have to admit, I was NOT stoked to go. 20 minutes before the class started I was feeling whiny, weak and wimpy. But I went, mostly because I was able to remind myself that I’ve NEVER regretted exercise, and….I paid money for the class!
When I got to class, the instructor told me to only grab 2 light kettlebells…Ha this sounded too good to be true at this point. As we were warming up I noticed these very LARGE and HEAVY looking kettlebells set up in stations around the room. ha…so much for my two light weights. The then she had us do a lower body circuit, and I have to admit, I did better then I thought I could do.
I did swings, squats and deadlifts with heavier weight then I have in a long time. In the picture above I am swinging at 28kg kettlebell (that is about 62 pounds).
I’m not going to lie, I was super proud of myself. I honestly didn’t think I could swing it. Granted, like I said..it was less reps with a way high wieght, but it was awesome!
I’m totally converted to this kettlebell thing. seriously.
