  1. 5hr30 on trainer followed by 5x1km off bike then 30min back on bike. Crazy cold in melb today. 45mins walk later in arvo and some movement based and isomertic exercises
  2. To look after yourself focus on load withlow rep actual strength. Happy to put together something.
  3. It appears you had a pt who obviously was doing generic programming. Tell me why you are or want to be doing a kettlebell swing. Give me some context. Are you strength training for triathlon or running or for crossfit? Below is a pic highlighting the forces of running gait of the muscles used. Many athletes run based i see have weak plantar flexors and weak hamstrings not weak glutes.
  4. As I am on the trainer for a few hours i will answer this today. Part 1- context First questions is why are you doing kettlebell swings? Did the pt give a reason why you were doing them? There are a few exercises pts give that are basically used to fatigue you rather then benefit you performance why. Go to any bootcamp or group session and you will always see burpees, jump squats or box jumps and kettlebell swings. They are too fatigue you to give the sense of you have trained but in essence you have just got tired. There is a Difference between training and working out. Traini
  5. Think it more has to do with when you chose to try and be funny v being serious.
