Kettlebell year 2017

Today I did light but long OALC set and did short sets of OAJ with 22 kg. I was sort of preparing my thoughts for creating my kettlebell training program for the first months of 2018. Yes, I will do that again myself as I did also in the beginning of 2017 when preparing for [...]

Three, two, one, Lift! Journey towards Finnish Championships 2018 starts now

24.-25.3.2018 are the next Finnish Championships in kettlebell lifting and I am going to be there. Today I came to know that 20 kg one arm categories are still part of the competition so now there are only good reasons to focus towards that. But first couple of things from this weekend as everything I [...]

Joy of lifting, but when there is time

I snatched on Monday 205 times 12 kg kettlebell. It was my record and even when it isn’t so much with so light weight I am proud. I have never been snatcher and still I am not, but I am better. Actually this and some news about next years categories in Finnish championships gave me [...]

Minigolf and kettlebell training pays off and there are reasons to smile

I love to lift – and not only kettlebells. I love to play minigolf – specially when it goes well. Today I am in the situation when minigolf truly feels good and on Monday I actually made my personal record at weekly competition in felt at Vaasa. The rounds were 42 and 38 and so [...]

Kahvakuulajärkytys – SM kisatavoitteet nurin

Oman treenaamisen punainen lanka on ollut perusteisiin palaamisessa ja tähtäin selvästi ensi vuoden SM-kisoissa. Valitettavasti tänään tuli uutinen, joka leikkaa omilta suunnitelmiltani siivet. SPNL:n kahvakuulavaliokunta on tehnyt päätöksen muuttaa lajivalikoimaa 2018 SM kisoissa. Oma tavoitteeni eli 20 kg:n biathlon eli tempaus ja OAJ (yhden käden työntö) on poistettu. Käytännössä itselleni mahdollisia olisivat nyt siis kuntosarja, [...]

Ei sittenkään minigolfia, joten nostetaas kuulaa – No minigolf competition so let’s lift kettlebells

Pienen lapsen äidille osallistumiset ei ole automaattisesti selvä juttu ja niin ei tälläkään viikolla, joten viikonlopun minigolfkisan voi unohtaa. Olkoon siis niin, mutta hei sitten voi välillä nostaa kuulaa ja muutakin. Itse asiassa ilmoittauduin tänään Kahvakuulaurheilun Suomen Cupin pohjoisen ja itäisen alueen kisaan nostamaan biathlonin. Nostan siellä vain ja ainoastaan 12 kg:n kuulalla ja siis [...]

Midsummer snatch and thoughts of training wisely

Midsummer is the time to relax, enjoy the moment and finnish summer. I don’t have much traditions nowadays for midsummer, but to go with a flow. Usually that means some grilling, minigolf, taking it easy and do some exercise just to enjoy. This time it was also seeing my parents which was nice. Today when [...]
