Project 44: day 2 – pushing and swinging!

Day two of project 44 involved personal training in which Matt the trainer decided that a sled-push / kettlebell swing / goblet squat followed by some more sled pushing and pulling would be exactly what I needed to wake up my morning! To some extent he wasn’t wrong…I did wake up. It was quite an…… Continue reading Project 44: day 2 – pushing and swinging!

September kettlebell fun…

I decided that I want to do more kettlebells. I used to do kettlebells all the time, then for some reason my use of them waned and now my lovely kettlebells sit gathering dust and in one case, acting as a doorstop. This will not do! It is time I dragged my poor neglected kettlebells…… Continue reading September kettlebell fun…
