As many of you know I started posting simple, quick kettlebell swing videos I call 10 x 10's out of the frustration I felt from trying to help a couple of friends I care about just get their asses up, out and swinging. I'm pretty sure the couple /few people they were aimed at did not follow through, but that's about them, not about me. Once I realized that it was in fact doing some good from the emails, messages and comments I received I thought I'd keep the momentum going and continue to post new ones focusing mostly on the beginning kettlebeller which is why they are all two hand swing workouts. (which is my favorite swing, by the way!)
Now that some of you have been practicing regularly, or more regularly I'll be adding another series of ten 10 x 10's incorporating one hand swings! Yay! But first, here is the last, the 20th, 10 x 10 video demonstrating some of the important bits of the two hand swing for you to remember before you let go of that bell handle with one of your hands! This workout is 10 minutes long, starting each set "on the minute", but if you know you can do between 10 - 20 swing reps in that time, then by all means do more!
And why should you want to do more? Well....let's see....there's always....
THE SWING QUEST 2014
Sunday January 5th I'll be hosting The Swing Quest 2014, starting at 7:15am. The Swing Quest is a marathon kettlebell swing event that I have yet to finish designing and promoting. Last year we did The Swing Quest four times, once every three months, on the first of last year, and last weekend of March, June, Sept (Big Sur). I will absolutely continue to lead and host The Swing Quest at least 4 times this year, and this Sunday will be the first event. Here are a couple more details I sent out to my group via email:
The location is at the Studio I currently lead my morning and weekend classes at in Palo Alto, http://noxcusesfitness.com/. It is an open invitation to experienced kettlebellers only at this point. That means that you are either an Instructor or you have been working with a Certified Instructor and are confident in your swing skill. The fee for the two hour event is $40 and you must confirm attendance via email, firstname.lastname@example.org, comment here on my blog, or Face Book message me. Space is limited.
If you want to know more you can do a blog search here for "The Swing Quest", I've written at least four other posts about it, but here is my favorite one:
