I went to Andrea's Kettlebell class on Thursday. I love being a student, actually I prefer it much more over teaching. I encourage everyone to train with someone or attend classes. Thursday was a lesson why it is so important for me to attend classes regularly... Andrea pointed out a couple bad habits I managed to pick up.
I do this weird thing where I experiment how subtle changes in form feels... I don't know why I do this... but lately I have been trying to really "blast" the K'bell when I swing. Somehow I have translated this into "flipping" the K'bell up before decent. I have also managed to pick up shrugging at the apex of the swing... I hate shrugs. Thank god someone pointed this out.
I don't recall exactly what we did for a workout... we did pistols, single leg deadlifts, oh press, swings and snatches.
Today I was vigilantly practiced better swings... I experimented with different ways to blast the K'bell without shrugging or flipping. I also practiced not blasting the K'bell.
I am totally envious of the Level 2 students in town this week... but relieved that I have another year or two to perfect my form. I still have level one to digest.
