    Today's practice:

    - prying goblet squat, 3x5, 24 kg
    - one-arm swings, 10x10 - 36, 40, 36, 36, 36.
    - get-ups, 5x1 - 32, 36, 32, 32, 32, 32.
    - stretching

    Note: When the old weight feels relatively light, the new weight doesn't feel heavy. There must be some research on this, I have to look it up.

    - 1,5 hours MMA - mainly grappling
    - 1,5 hours Practical Hung Kyun - mainly street oriented kicking

    Today's picture:

    Dumbbell get-up from an old strongman's scrapbook, late 19th/early 20th century. SFG standard, isn't it?

    Today's quote: Years ago, my friend Dr. Jim Wright said something that got burned into my brain: “Consistency and moderation over intensity.” Not nearly as sexy as “Do or die!” or some other juvenile T-shirt slogan, but you could not think of a better set of directions for durable performance.

    - get-ups, 5x1 - 32, 36, 36, 36, 32, 32.

    Note: The body adapts very well - I am not sore even a little bit. My left shoulder, which is more mobile, got more stable. My right shoulder, which is stiffer, got more mobile. Good.

    - MMA+Practical Hung Kyun joined class.

    Awesome video!!! Especially the women doing pull-ups. If only we could make the pull-up every American woman's goal... we would be so much better oriented in our exercise efforts. Beautiful.

    So ? How was the Bond movie ?

    @Serge I am not a fan of the new Bond movies, but I enjoyed this one. Not the intro song, though - it is terrible. The movie is cool - more "Bond moments" and humor than in the previous Daniel Craig series.

    Pavel M you are progressing quickly with the 40kg swings.

    @Stuart Elliott swings feel awesome, much faster progress than I have expected. Get-ups - enough strength, but the technique is not perfect (yet), so I take it slowly.

    Today's quote: "If all of the above seems overwhelming and complicated, just follow the Enter the Kettlebell! Program Minimum [or the updated version of PM, S&S - note P.M.] with a heavy kettlebell, eventually 32-48kg. Yes, it is that simple".

    When you read it, it might not make sense. When you do it, it makes sense perfectly.
