Benching with Gabe

My first real workout with my 15 year old son Gabriel. He benched a solid 135 pounds weighing 145 pounds himself and having done little but pushups in the last year.And damn few of those to boot!

But I was SO proud of him and felt so connected to my boy,soon to be a man.It was a serious moment when I changed the weights from 128 of small plates to the one big plate that weighed 135 with the bar. He momentarily freaked out and doubted whether he could accomplish this huge feat, those giant plates.

But like I hoped he would, he dug down,focused in and made the lift.He HAS been paying was a very good day.Afterwards, we had mexican food and cokes and some great conversation.I will remember this day the rest of my life.

Russian Kettlebells

Russian Kettlebells for Strength, Conditioning and Fat Loss

I love kettlebells as much as I love powerlifting and that says a lot. These little blobs of iron have a simple beauty to them that mesmerizes me. I have always sought the perfect training regimine and the perfect way to stay strong,enduring and fit. If I only could do one training method besides Powerlifting this would be it.

First post

This is the first post to my first blog. I am doing this totally on a whim, so I have no real idea how it will turn out, but it intrigues me.
