Training my Mom!

Today I had the privilege of training my Mom!

She is 73 years old and Mother of 7 children. I am the baby :)

Her first appointment was last Friday. I was waiting for her.... She never show up :( Why? I never really knew why. She gave me many different reasons.... or maybe I should say, many different excuses.

After all, she decided to re-schedule her training session. I couldn't believe it, she wasn't going to show up again! but she felt pretty bad, so she decided to come to workout. She was very late but she came :)

This is her Program A:

Step Ups 2 x 6/6
Cable Woodchops 2 x 10/10
Swiss Ball DB Bench Press 2 x 10

KB Deadlift 2 x 6
Cable Pull 2 x 10/10
Swiss Ball Forward Ball Roll 2 x 6

She did great! and we had an amazing time together!

Use it or lose it!

A couple months ago I was capable of pressing the 24kg Kettlebell.

I have been training light since then because I was overtrained from two years of heavy lifting.:(

Last week I attempted to press the 24kg and I could not do it. Mentally I knew I could do it but my body couldn't do it.

Franz suggested to me to remove my shoes and perform a couple single leg deadlifts and a snatch of the 24 kg into an eccentric military press. I rested a few minutes and I tried again!

Bingo!!!! I could press my 24kg Kettlebell again!:)

Be careful.... If you don't use it you will lose it!
