Sore legs

Ray, Aberdeen's Mr Kettlebell

Oh that familiar feeling of sore legs, stiffened up so you creak to pick something off the floor, reminds me that i was throwing kettlebells around on Saturday.

I found that during the week before, when i was doing a set of 20 swings, I was losing the discipline of clenching the buttocks and squeezing the abs. So on Saturday i decided to do less but with more intensity. Build the foundations strong!

I went beynd my small number as the discipline was good and i threw in some one handed -alternative - swings to finish off with. I'll have to do some today to get rid of the pain and keep it regular. I seem to be beyond the cramping problems now though [touch wood] and seem to have added a kilo in muscle mass. Diet is good, hydration is good. Everyone tells me i'm looking healthy. I have suppressed the rash from developing further.

"A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that's unlocked and opens inwards; as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than push."

Here's the video of the banding i underwent a few months back. You'll see the rubber bands on the varices. I cringe with the memory of the pain! Be warned....

I think it's cool that you got to take the DVD home ;) It must have been quite a fiddly job putting those bands on (the quicker the better, I assume??).
