Movement, Strength

Strength for Christmas

After listening to a podcast interview with Pavel Tsatsouline on strength training this week, I have been inspired to pick up (home) kettlebell training again.

I’m only a few workouts in, and it feels amazing to be building my strength again, in every sense.

I haven’t realized how much I missed it until now.

Food for thought.

For those of you who‘d like to know more about the program I’m following, I strongly (HAR) recommend checking out Pavel’s ‘Simple & Sinister’ (e)book, which has been recently re-released.

December’s sessions:
