Went to kettlebell practice despite not feeling 100% but I would have felt worse had I not gone. Marisa's menu today:
One Arm Swing, L & R
Snatch, L & R (Around the Body with a Catch and Lunge, modification)
Clean and Press, L & R
Overhead Static Hold, L & R
A to Grass (i.e. Squats) with Kettlebell, 10 x's
We did each maneuver for one minute. I made it through the first round okay but staggered through the second one. I must say, though, I can hold a kettlebell in the upright position for a very long time. If there's a Kettlebell Overhead Static Hold contest, put your money on me.
Because of recent incidents, we talked about personal safety. Barb had a good point. She suggested parking so that you don't have to back out. Chip said that, if in danger, he would not hesitate to hit other cars to get away. I reminded everyone that fire stations are usually occupied...
Barb talked about her recent trip to California. Everyone in Cali is in such good shape. I think this talk of Cali people made us swing our 'bells a little longer and lunge a little deeper.
Speaking of safety, Marisa reminded us that if we could not maintain good form to cease and desist with the reps...
