8-17-10: Kettlebell Swings

8-17-10, Tuesday


Used my 28kg kettlebell and the swings were all to face-height.  My cardio is atrocious right now so it’s time to work on it again.  If I happen to lose a bunch of weight in the process of developing a good base-level of cardio then so be it.  It’s hard to motivate myself to lose weight now since it won’t especially help my Highland Games strength.  But on the other hand, I think losing weight will make me a bit faster on my feet – even without getting stronger – so that will have some positive carryover to moving the Highland Games implements faster.

    I found that when I worked on my athletisism and lost a about 20#’s my throws improved. I wouldn’t worry about it that much.
