This is my very first post, and I do not believe any one has posted one quite like it.
Dose any one enjoy working out? Can range from any thing you like, from jogging to power lifting and any thing in between.
Also why do you do what you do?
Do you work out for your general health and well being?
Do you work out for strength and conditioning purposes?
Or maybe all of the above? For sports you are involved in, lifting competitions and meets.
As for me, I am a work horse in my garage. I own a power cage with which I use for benching and squats with my barbell, dead lifts outside of that. With those exercises I am doing very well, I believe in lifting very heavy and for few reps and many sets. My latest personal records with poundage, I recorded these in my last entry that went over the weekend. Now these are my ONE REP MAX achievements, I will state the 1RPM stats first, then what I do for reps on an average day.
I also work out with Russian Kettlebells, I think I could give up the barbell work outs and nearly maintain what I have with just these tools. They are the most effective thing I have ever come across, EXTREMELY FUN and EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE.
In case you are wondering what exactly a Kettlebell is, here is a link to further elaborate.
I look to become a Russian Kettlebell instructor some day when I can attend the seminar to gain my certification.
