Kettlebells in California

Tuesday, April 14, 2009

I'm in Petaluma, CA for a few weeks for engineering integration work. I keep a 24kg kettlebell in the Petaluma office to allow me to continue to train when I'm out here a two to three times a year.

Morning Kettlebell session:

Z-Health Neural Warmup Level II Dynamic Joint Mobility

24kg x 1 x 1/1 TGU

24kg x 5 x 10/10 One-hand swings, each set at the top of minute

24kg MaxVo2 Snatch 15 secs work, 15 secs rest @ 8 reps per set:
Total sets: 12 + 4 = 16
Total snatches: 128

The first session of 12 MaxVO2 sets was an improvement of two over last Monday. However it left me totally drained and I could barely follow up with another session of four sets.

Total Volume: 12100 lb

You're in Cali? Cool! Close to San Diego?

Hi Franz,

Unfortunately I'm way north in Sonoma County near Santa Rosa. I was very fortunate to locate a great Olympic Lifting club, Myles-Ahead, very close to our home office in Petaluma .. they even have kettlebells!

Hey Man, are you enjoying wine country as well? I sure hope so!!

Hi Howie,

On previous trips, I have had the extreme pleasure several times to partake in the various wine tasting tours in Sonoma County. You are right .. for anybody visiting out here, its not to be missed.

Keeping a KB stashed in CA is officially hardcore.
