Meeting The Legend – Bill Kazmaier
I have tried to teach Josie to do the kettlebell Goblet Squat for a few weeks. Just a few times here and there where I have shown her how to do it and casually watched while she tried it out – or more often, didn’t try it out and didn’t care to. Which I am okay with. I didn’t want to push her too much. But the kettlebell seems pretty light for her (5lbs), and she had no trouble pulling it up under her chin and holding it there for a bit. The squat part was harder for her than holding the kettlebell at the chest – because of balance issues I think. But she wanted to keep doing it. I had to hide her kettlebell so she wouldn’t do it endlessly and wear herself out.
This was hard to catch on camera because she was pretty disdainful about holding the lockout.
The Dinnie Lift is an official USAWA event. Just a few short years from now, Josie will be strong enough to lift the implements used in the USAWA comps. I’m looking forward to that!
From left to right:
I have more strength training toys (tools, but to her they are more toys, and I like that) that she uses off and on. No set routine, just whenever she feels like it. I’m even teaching her the hook grip for later in life when she is ready to start Olympic lifting.
Don’t let her pretty dress fool you. She was ready to blast off with this weight on the Saxon Plank.
The Saxon Snatch is one of the events at the OTSM contest (USAWA sanctioned) at Eric Todd’s training facility in September.
It involves pinch gripping a 3″ wide wood surface and then snatching the weight overhead – without losing your grip, of course. Good times.
