Kettlebell Juggling

First week of kettlebell juggling! Today I was swinging a 12 kg bell and did okay. I need to work on getting a symmetric rotation on the bell when I flip it. It takes a while to get used to flinging a kettlebell towards your body. If things don’t go right on the flip, then get the heck out of the way! Click here for video.

Recovery Day

Monday, January 16, 2012 Leave a comment

I am just a little sore today in my quads and calves. So, I decided to try out my new DVD “Xtreme Calorie Burner! Indian to Girdwood. Virtual Indoor Cycling Training / Spinning Fitness and Weight Loss Videos” for 30 minutes. The entire workout is 1 hour 50 minutes but I just wanted to move my muscles for a bit to ease the soreness.

This is a really neat DVD because you get to see the actual scenery along the bike trail that follows Seward highway South of Anchorage towards the Girdwood ski resort. The display also shows you the recommended percent of max heart rate, distance, elevation, etc.

The only downside to the DVD is that the lighting was a bit dark – I guess it was a night ride.
