The brick walls are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. Because the brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough.

Consistent practice equals consistent progress.


Dead Last Finish is greater than Did Not Finish which greatly trumps Did Not Start.

Where have all the workouts gone?

I haven't been logging my workouts lately. I am lazy and they have been rather unstructured. When you walk into the room, pick up a kettlebell, set the Gymboss and start swinging random exercises for 30 minutes it is hard to remember what you did.

As part of the Challenges on JP Fitness, I am making it my goal to become more structured in my workouts. So I have the next few weeks planned out. Today's workout looks mighty simple on paper but it kicked my butt!!

Single KB front squat, 3 sets of 6 reps on each side with 25lb KB. I was supposed to do 4 sets but I did squats yesterday and by the end of the 3rd set I was done.

KB Highpull (each side) and single arm swing (each side) circuit, 12-10-8-6-4-2 reps with 25lb KB

20 minutes on Gazelle

So there it is. So simple looking. I was so glad to get to the cardio portion and I HATE cardio! LOL

I have a slight fascination with the snatch lately. It is by far my favorite KB exercise. Lately I have been wanting to try a barbell snatch. If only the stupid weather would cooperate. I don't have enough space inside. I would break a window. Imagine explaining that to hubby. He is already convinced that I am going to put a KB through a window one of these days!!

Tomorrow is my rest day so I think I will play around with the barbell snatch with no weight to get a feel for it. I know it isn't technically a rest day then!
