Video: Part of a HIIT workout me and Emily did outside today on Hooker Fields at UNC Chapel Hill.
It was a beautiful today and we wanted to do some conditioning so we did our workout outside :) I brought my portable badass speaker (I am DJ Swoll afterall) and we had that blasting.
Our workout was 3 Rounds of:
It was a good little workout to get the heart rate up and get some sun
Edit: I like mah quadz
Andd here’s my training from yesterday. Still feeling a little sick but well enough to do conditioning and I hit good numbers on the 3 position clean & jerk.
I felt like doing extra upper body work so I did some pressing and pulling around lunch time. Thursdays are usually pretty light anyway - just 3 position clean & jerks and some form of conditioning.
Incline DB Bench Press
Iso Lateral Row
3 Position Clean & Jerk x 5
RKC Challenge (100 KB Snatches)
This is really cool! Turn any dumbbell into a kettlebell with this attachment. —> The KettleClamp:
Went to MashElite to train today! I have really been wanting to practice my oly lifts and here is the only place where I can get critiqued from S&C coaches.
I usually train with the owner but he was at the other location today so I got the other Head Coach, Derek. I hadn’t interacted with him much until today but I really like him. He’s a good coach and he pointed out that when I clean, my butt comes up before my shoulders do and I need to keep my butt down when I pull. Apparently, I deadlift with my butt down (the correct way) but as soon as I try to clean, I lead with my butt. I’ll work on that.
Followed the cleans with deadlifts and then a 3 rounds of 8 reps each for KB goblet squats, db bench press, kb hinges, and hamstring ball curls.
After the workout, I was playing around with the kettlebells and Derek saw me and was impressed that I knew to swing with a proper hinge and not by squatting down. I also showed him how I could snatch and windmill. He said he was so glad that I would be interning there this summer and said to email him any time I wanted cool S&C info, advice, discussion, etc.
Derek said he was obsessed with Kettlebells a few years ago and suggested the RKC certification. It’s quite a bit of money but would probably pay off to have.
I’m so stoked to intern there! I start after my summer class at UNC is over. Summer school starts Monday and goes until June 17 or 18 (depending when on my final is).

Good thing I just got a kettlebell! :)
Really wanted a high quality kettlebell so I splurged and bought one from DragonDoor.com
Plus, with the purchase of one of their kettlebells, you get a free class from an RKC instructor if there’s one in your area. I checked and there’s one in my city so awesome!
12kg (26ish lbs). Can’t wait to use it :)
Try Play it again sports or Dicks. Also buy a Molded one that is all one piece!
I bought mine on Walmart.com. I love it.
Target is where I buy all that jazz
I got mine from amazon.com some of the options have prime so you can get free shipping.
If you can afford it: dragondoor.com They are expensive, but really nice.
But if you’re looking for quality go to rogue fitness/again faster
Play it again sports usually has good deals
Thanks for all the input guys! I’m looking into these places. I want a good quality kettlebell because I plan on getting a lot of use out of it :)
A pistol balanced on a kettlebell! Crossfit women are amazing!
