Thursday, January 31, 2013


Today, I reached a new milestone in my strength training. I have progressed to the point that I can now do Kettlebell swings with an 80 pounder :)

Here is a pic of my new Kettlebell compared to my original 20 pounder


My new line up of heavier Kettlebells...my collection is growing.. :)
**80 lbs - 55lbs - 40 lbs


My other Kettlebells and weights



I felt so good I even pulled out the tri-bike and did some stationary bike work...


What better way to train for a triathlon than to watch the Ironman while riding :)


I feel a woo hoo coming on!!! :)

let's hear it! ...i'm listening....

    For us old gym rats it is a good reminder of the time we sheepishly walked over to the free weights and chose something lighter than a lot of women were working with. I have been pushing and pulling pretty consistently for 35 years and I am not there to lose weight but to have a good level of physical capability and the satisfaction of just doing it!!!
I will be 74 in a couple weeks and attribute a lot of my enthusiasm in life to the capability weight training has given me. You really never have to give it up.

    80 lbs, you go!! Woo-hoo! High five!! Thanks for sharing your video! I love the expression on your face right before the video cuts out...such a genuine feeling of happiness and pride! Awesome! I am sitting here smiling at my desk and it is entirely due to you. emoticon

Have fun with your tri! And you are right, no better way to ride on a trainer than while watching the IronMan (or Tour de France) in my opinion.

    Obligatory WOO HOO! Way to go! I am impressed, the last time I swung my 1 pood (36 lbs) KB I threw my back out when I put it down! That's what happens though when you don't do it for quite a while and try to jump right back in (especially when you have herniated discs!). Keep up the good work.
