Training with Aaron

I got home form work early today, Aaron saved his workout for me. After a day of preparing workouts for other people I am always wishing someone could put together a workout for me. What am I talking about... I go to two yoga classes and a KB class per week. I am spoiled. Any whoo...

TGU's 16kg - 5L/5R; alternating.

I stoled Taikei's workout...
Clean and Press ladders; double 16's 1,2,3 x 4 - LOVED IT.

I watered my sad and heat stresses flowers between sets.

We need rain here, badly, but your double clean and press was awesome in the meantime. You were pressing those two KBs like they were one barbell.

Taikei Matsushita said...

C&P ladder is the main thing written in ETK - not my idea, technically you stole it from Pavel.

progresses weekly or bi-weekly depending on your strength and condition as
1,2,3 X 4
1,2,3 X 5
1,2,3,4 X 5
1,2,3,4,5 X 5

As you know, the increment gets real steep when you start out 4 reps per set.

I am going to have to start buying some more books and dvd's. Believe it or not I don't own a single kettlebell dvd or book. I just go to Andrea's class.

Even if I did have a kettlebell book or dvd I read your blog several times a week... Much more inspiring that a book or dvd.

Taikei Matsushita said...

Every single thing written by Pavel is magnificent.

Power to the People, Naked Warrior, Beyond Bodybuilding, Enter the Kettlebell

First 3 of those don't necessarily involve kettlebells but RKC principles are behind them.

Next time you see Pavel, probably you'll look at him differently. Ask Andrea about his writings, and her DVD (which I haven't seen).
Brett Jones DVDs are also good.

Fawn, I'm feeling strong enough today to try some double 16kg KB work today!

Presses, squats and probably waiters walks.

I have Power to the People, and Relax into Stretch... just no KB books or dvd's. Both books are awesome!

I had the luxury of dinning with Pavel earlier this summer at the RKC 2, it was like dinning with a celebrity! I was feeling a little star struck. It was hard for me to keep from staring and act normal, LOL!

So, I will get one dvd at a time, absorb it, then get another.

You are so strong and focused. I am sure you will be surprised how easily the 16's go up. You were the one who really helped me get better form when pressing at the cert.
