~ DAY 19 ... Slow Carb (4HB) Challenge ~

Saturday, June 15, 2013

... today is my free day, I'll leave it a that and hope that what I eat today doesn't undo everything I have done over the past week! emoticon

I went shopping today and stopped at target. I bought a 7lb and a 12lb kettlebell; so now I have 5, 7, 8, 10, 12 & 15lb kettlebells. I love the kb workouts but I have to start out slow. When I read about what a beginner, female kettlebell weight should be, I read that 20lbs was a good starting weight!... I tried using my 15lb kb and could do only 1 rep with it and that 1 rep was very hard so that starting weight cant' apply to everyone.

... anyway, I plan to do a kb workout tomorrow for my strength training workout.

~ Enjoy your evening and in the meantime remember

    One cheat day can't undo all your work, no matter what you ate!!! [I have Done MANY "buf-feasts" (buffet feasts) on my rest days... and am still ahead of the game!!!]

I'm glad you are listening to your body aboutt he KB weight. Those guidelines don't always apply to all people! Especially when it comes to exercise!

    Enjoy your free day (in moderation) I read in an article that starting KB with a certain weight was to ensure proper form and technique. Have you taken lessons from a professional? Its strongly advised as apparently injuries are easy to get with this form of ST..
Take care!

    Never thought about looking for kettlebells at Target! My new gym that opens soon will have fitness clinics in different things, including kettlebells. I really want to start doing them after getting some instruction.
