We are halfway through Kettle Bells?! I feel like I'm just getting warmed-up. Although the jump to four cycles this week was a strong signal that shit got real. I'm generally feeling good, at ease, and flowing in this program. Compared to Chisel, I'm not sweating as much or running out of breath, so I feel like the cycles are harder there. Nonetheless, I'm enjoying throwing a canon ball around - esp the swing.
So a departure from program: a bunch of coworkers are engaging in a Whole30 challenge throughout the month of May and I've decided to join them. I researched the Whole30 diet and it's basically a Kenzai diet except ZERO grains, ZERO dairy, but one is allowed oils and nuts. There isn't amount restriction or gram measurement (which is obviously a problem from a results perspective), but I know my Kenzai portions well, so I'll eyeball things according to my Kenzai meals. From a trainer perspective, it's a good opportunity for me to test something out there that is popular right now. As an athlete, I'm not afraid of carbs, so I think the no grains policy is foolish, but it's just a month. I'll report back with thoughts and results throughout the month. Below is a pic of my Whole30 (also Kenzai kompliant) steak frites dinner. Fries were just potatoes cut into fry shape and then sauteed in avocado oil with spices.
