I did the Z Health NWU1 followed by kettlebell training. The Kbell training consisted of MP ladders (3x1,2,3) and 100 swings with the 24kg.

2008-04-21 Keeping it simple

Last week was utter chaos and I'm not yet fully back into a productive training schedule. For today I did the Z health NWU1 sequence. My Kettlebell training consisted of ladder work (3x1,2,3) and Snatches (5x5l/5r) with the 24kg bell.

Saturday Z and Kettlebells

I started with the Z R phase drills. It is getting easier to do the drills by the day. Today the most difficult part was the hip work. My Kettlebell training consisted of 3x1,2,3 Military Presses with the 24kg and 97 swings. I find that my butt gets pretty worked with the swings - something which did not happen before I started with Z. Perhaps I've become more effective at recruiting my glutes and hamstrings during the swings.

2008-04-10 - More Z and kettlebell variety day

I did the whole Z health R phase sequence. The exercises are becoming easier and I am also finding that I can concentrate more on getting the form perfect. Afterwards I did Turkish Get Ups (5l/5r) with the 24kg bell. My body moved smoothly and the TGU's felt surprisingly easy.


I'm still taking things easy. I started with the Z Health Level 1 Neuro Warm up. I'm trying to make the movements as slow as possible to really feel what I'm doing. My body felt good and loose after the sequence. My Kettlebell training consisted of 24kg MP ladders (3x1,2,3) and 80 swings. I found the presses and swings very easy. It does seem as if I'm using my body more efficiently because of the Z health training.

Training: 8/4/2008

Today was a light day and I'm still recovering from my glute/lower back injury. I started with the whole Z Health R phase sequence. I felt very loose, warm and tall afterwards. I then did only 4 Turkish Get Ups with the 24kg bell and called it a day. What I'm currently trying to focus on is to get my Kbell form absolutely perfect by incorporating some Z health ideas into the training.

Finally back after injury

I finally started kettlebell training again after injurieg myself in a fall down a flight of stairs. I was surprised that my strength and endurance didn't suffer much after six weeks off. Maybe the Z Health I've been doing has some role to play in this. Anyway, today I decided to take it easy and I started with the basics of ETK ROP week 1.

C&P 24kg ladders: 3x1,2,3
Snatches (24kg): 5x5l/5r for a total of 50 reps.
