Back in town and training

Got back from Florida late yesterday, fresh off of an unexpected entry into the World Kettlebell Club Championships.  More on my experience there in the next few days, but here is a hint – much learnings and passing of knowledges from learned experts plus placing of faces with names. Biggest learning – I have a lot more in me than I thought I did.

Back to training.

Glad I chalked up the bell. Couple of observations – (1) I don’t really know how to do a high pull, so I did snatches instead of high pulls/ snatches. I think the high pull is an exercise designed to either help with or act as a substitute for the harder style snatch or (2) This looks deceptively easy, but it is a grip killer and it took the wind out of me very quickly. I am happy to have made it through without dropping the bell.
