Anvil or Hammer


Posted in Kettlebells by Mike on February 7, 2007

I headed to class yesterday but not before heading to the gym at the University of Baltimore. I was thinking they had some rowing machines, I was wrong, dangit. I wandered around for a bit and finally headed for the kettlebells that I have played with before. They have a pretty decent set. I don’t recall all the weights but it’s roughly two of each weight in 8 kilo increments. More than I can use at once.
Time was short and it was my first day of class so I kept things short. I also kept things short because I’m still planning on lifting tonight as well. So this was just a little gasser but not too much of a workout. Honestly, I kinda like the tire better but this will do for a while.

24K ten reps per hand per minute. Shooting for five consecutive minutes. I got through four, took a minute off and did one more.
16K ten reps per hand per minute. I did this just too see how it would go as a step down workout. The weight was amazingly light but that didn’t stop my back from tightening up like crazy around minute two. At minute three decided I had had enough.

I’d like to take the 24K all the way through the 5 minute, I think it’s there, I just need to push a little harder. 100 reps in 5 minutes is okay.I think I have done more in a test at Dan’s but can’t find the documentation.
