126 Swings

Dave and I had our little swing competition again. It hasn't happened every Friday as we planned, for various reasons. So, today I made it to 126 swings in the five-minute period. Dave did 100, and his form was a lot more solid this time.

114 Swings

My co-worker Dave and I decided to have a little competition -- kettlebell swings for reps within five minutes. I won, 114 to 100. I maintain the position that I could have easily done more had I realized how little time was remaining.

The important thing is that I maintained a good form throughout. We took a video of the swings so we could count if needed. That's good, because I don't count while swinging, and I walked away thinking I had done fewer than I actually did.

This is going to become a weekly contest, so I'll continue to post the results. It'll also give my daily training some sort of structure, because I'll be working toward a goal. Also, it'll give me something kettlebell-related to post, since I haven't had much to write about the topic lately.
