Working with a Trainer
This morning I had to take 3 of my kids to a group violin lesson. While they practiced I read on my Kindle. I'm currently reading Cloud Atlas, and I'm enjoying it. The book is well written. The first chapter was a bit hard to get into, but after that I got hooked. It was pleasant to sit in the sunshine (it's 70 here), with violins playing in the background, and read a good book.
Today was a kettlebell workout day. I got up early (thanks to my husbands alarm) and did a little yoga. It was good to stretch out before getting in the car and driving. I didn't do my planned kettlebell workout because instead, I drove an hour to the city and met with a RKC kettlebell trainer (the kids were in tow, since in was after violin, I bought them lunch at Chick fil a as a bribe). I met him today for the first time, and we went over all of the basics; the squat, swing, clean, press, TGU. He was very nice and very helpful. I have been doing decently on my own, if I do say so myself ;), but still, he was able to help me fine tune. My swing is better (I could easily swing a heavier bell!), my clean is better, and I have a much better understanding of the TGU. He was definitely worth the hour, and I look forward to working with him again. Because he's so far away, I'm planning on every 2 months, at least for the next year. I really want to improve in kettlebell.
I wish there was a kettlebell gym closer, but I'm quite happy that I was able to find a trainer. He doesn't have a web-site or I would link it. He doesn't do this full time, just on the side, but he was very professional and did a great job.
Off to order some new, heavier bells. :)
