Kettlebell Fun (Mon 4/19/10)

This past weekend we hosted American Kettlebell Club coach Marcus Taylor for a kettlebell seminar, and we all learned some great things about kettlebell training. We learned the basics about body position, hand position and hip pop, we learned how to swing it, clean it, jerk it, snatch it, half and full get-up with it, windmill it, bulldog it, figure-8 snatch it and bottoms-up clean and press it. All in all it was a terrific seminar and we’re looking forward to welcoming Marcus and Jolina back in the future.

In this photo we see Marcus teaching Mike the bottom position in the windmill. Either that or they’re examining a problem with the ceiling. Or they’re rehearsing their synchronized interpretive dance for the school talent show. Or they’re holding up a very large imaginary tray of cookies. Or Marcus is checking Mike for earwax. (ok…I can get carried away sometimes)
