Once again, Wednesday Kettlebell class rolled around. Our instructor (Mike) decided that 20+" of snow kinda sucked and took off for sunny LA, so our Monday/Friday instructor (Matt) took over the class. I think changing things up is a good thing every now and again. Both instructors are excellent at what they do, but are stylistically very different in the workout routines and exercises that make up any one of their classes.
This week's class mixed traditional Kettlebell exercises (one & two handed swings, snatches, get-ups) with more traditional dumbbell exercises (curls, flys, rows). One interesting move that was thrown in was called a Goblet Squat to overhead press. With feet wider than shoulder width apart and holding the Kettlebell tight to your chest with both hands, execute a squat, bringing your elbows down at least to your thighs. When you come back up, continue the up motion with your arms, pressing the Kettlebell up & over your head and lower it back to the starting position to complete the rep.
I left the gym a bit sore which is a good mark for a solid workout.
