The 5kg feels so light now...

I've had the 10kg for a couple of weeks now. Although I can only manage about 10 swings before putting it down I feel alot better with it. My confidence has gone up tenfold and I don't feel like I'm tweaking anything. I'm still taking a step here and there to get back underneath it as well as bending my knees quite a bit, but, I'm getting there. What's nice is that the 5 feels so light now.

However, I watched the guys on the Indian wrestling dvd using 40+kg ones and also remembered Jake telling me that I could do it too. So outside I went.

15KG 100 swings non-stop

About 3 weeks ago Jake (and thank you very much for this Jake) challenged me to hit 100 swings nonstop with the 15KG Macebell. Now I will be honest, I have been working very slowly with the Macebell, my first time swinging it didn't go really well and I convinced myself I needed to take it easy. But, just like everything else when the opportunity to step up and tackle something I decided I was going to cut loose and see what I can do. I have not yet hit 100 nonstop swings, I do however consider… Continue
