A recent study now shows working out with KBs “improved strength in the trunk and core muscles, compared with the control group. Over all, working out with kettlebells reduced lower back pain by 57 percent and cut neck and shoulder pain by 46 percent.”

Excellent work on the OH Squat. The bottom of that squat is rock solid…from this angle the weight might be back a bit far (showing us his flexible shoulders). Drawing a vertical line from the bar it should drop through his thigh to his midfoot. Otherwise, heels, knees back/track toes, hips back, chest/head up…very nice!
The skills work after Cindy was an important message…that will be the most important part of your conditioning program.
Realistically, of what use is the Intensity and crashing around, if it’s not even proper and virtuous? Conversely, without Virtuosity can there even be Intensity?
At home, or the few minutes before class, grab a few minutes of a skill…it’ll make all the difference.
