Post your training journals here if you like. I'll make back-ups to avoid losing your data.

1. Easy 1 mile on the hamster wheel
2. Swings: 24 kg x 7 x 10
3. Pistols L+R: 1 holy shit this is hard and makes my knees feel like they're gonna explode. Will carefully work on these
4. Windmills L+R: 24 kg x 3 x 5
5. Turkish Get-Ups L+R: 24 kg x 5
6. Chin-Ups: 5 x 5
7. Mobbing


Pistols are hard and I will work on then. I liked the windmills quite a lot, my shoulders felt good during those. And as advised, I will add-in the chin-ups on my snatch and pressing days. I have a bar I can use at home.

I like that even with these additions, the program is still nice and simple.

Use a pole pistol to control your descent or use a TRX/rope to hold onto. Even box pistols are fine.

As you improve, you can progress to using a broomstick/dowel instead of the stripper pole. This gives some assistance with balance & helps you transition to raw Pistols.

I'm really happy about how this whole thing is shaping up. And I'm enjoying the training.

The ringworm is finally clearing up and I'll be able to get out on the mat this week too, probably Wednesday or Thursday, and I'm really excited about that. I'm recovering a lot faster between sets with the kettlebells and the running has been feeling great, my wind is getting better and I feel a lot more comfortable when I'm moving around and exerting myself, and I think that if I can get back out on the at with that peaceful, relaxed attitude I've been trying to cultivate, I'll enjoy it even more. So I'm looking forward to getting back out there.

I didn't realize there were any other IGX members from LA...I live in New Orleans, so I just thought I'd say hi. I've been around here (IGX) for a few years, but not the most active by far. It's the most unique online forum I've ever seen, but probably my favorite.

I'm a grappler (Judo/BJJ) since '95, and an IKFF L1 kettlebell 'couch' as the saying goes! I just love lifting kb's, along with barbell deadlifts, and bodyweight training.

I have a friend that lives in Broussard, he's a member of Ken Blackburn's IKFF Comp team. Great guy.

Anyway, I just thought I'd introduce myself.
