#7 Pull-Up. #8 Kettlebell Swing. This week turns up the intensity a wee bit. Both exercises this week are not typically what I would consider beginner exercises but that doesn’t necessarily mean they couldn’t be. All I know is the average adult cannot do a pull-up without putting in some “work” and the kettlebell swing will take some practice with a watchful eye before it looks good. In fact, the swing can be a bit dangerous if proper form is not learned (and practiced), especially before using a respectable amount of weight. Both exercises typically improve drastically with ample regular practice and good form. There are many ways to “assist” yourself while working on pull-ups. Seek these out if needed. With swings, you don’t necessarily “need” a kettlebell. I started out using a dumbbell and a old cinderblock (cinderblocks typically weigh around 35 pounds). The point is to be safe and practice often. By the way, the “practice” is the “workout”. (I hope you can appreciate the vagueness of modern fitness terminology). But don’t wear yourself out like the term humorously suggests. I would even go as far as to say…avoid fatigue. Practice strong reps with confidence. Rinse and repeat. Enjoy the process. Ask questions if needed. #pullups #chinups #kettlebellswing #austinpersonaltrainer #austinpersonaltrainers #austinpersonaltraining #blueskystrongbox
