First of all, my training:
36 lb. kettlebell - 8 l, 8 r at the top of the minute for six minutes = 96 snatches in six minutes for anyone keeping track
After 16 snatches, I had about 15 seconds of rest before that bleepin' Gymboss timer was going off.
TGUs - 3 x 4 l,r w/ 26 lb. KB
Squats - 3 x 4 l, r w/ 36 lb. KB
Clean & Press - 3 x 7 l, r w/ 26 lb. KB
I did this as a circuit, three times through.
TGUs - I did 2 full get-ups and 2 from the lunge up and down. That felt better on my neck/shoulder, but still worked my legs.
Squats - Ass to grass! It felt great to use the bigger bell.
Clean & Press - On the left I couldn't eek out that last rep. On the right, no problem.
Brad sells the best Z Health kool aid! I love it!
Seriously, if you look at my quote of the week, that shows you what Brad does for me. He tells me to "use the force" - aka my inner spirit to find healing and strength. And gosh, darn it, if he isn't right. I'm going to change my name for Brad. I used to call him Evil, Evil Kettlebell Man. Now I will call him Yoda. Let me splain.........
I've had this nagging neck/shoulder issue for weeks. It has been bad. It was consuming all of my thoughts. I couldn't figure out how to get rid of it. Why won't it go away? What if I can't train? What if it prevents me from becoming an RKC. On and on and on in my brain like this. Brad tells me I need to re-associate the pain in my neck. He directs me to think about people and events that make me happy while I'm doing my Z. Okay, Yoda, whatever you say. Sunday afternoon, Sunday night, Monday morning, Monday afternoon - I do what Yoda says. And yeah, he's right. The pain is subsiding.
Our thoughts truly do define what we are. I think pain/negative - I get pain. I think happy/positive - I get happy/positive. I'm branching out!!!
Thanks, Yoda, for showing me where to find my force.
