Hi! I'm KB Girl, 27 y/o, based in the Netherlands. I normally lift kettlebells, as many clean & jerks or snatches as I can fit in 10 minutes. But only on competition days, because 10 minutes makes for a lot of d*mn reps. (My best set so far. Will need to do twice this to achieve my goals.) As always my main focus will be the world championships of kettlebell lifting in November (+qualifying in september obviously). However that's still a couple months away so I can still blissfully ignore working on endurance and explore other hobbies that involve STRENGHT! Woot! Goal 1: Weightlifting with barbells \o/ Careful not to over do it, i'll work on clean&jerk once a week and on the snatch once a week. No PRing or anything, just drills. Lots of drills. Or as jdanger said; "Find ways to load and spend time in the problem positions and drill/strengthen the crap out of it until it's the new normal." Since twice a week is so little, I'll just have to spend the rest of my time geeking out on all things weightlifting. That's what I do best anyways. Goal 2: Gots to do the kb work. I'm a stubborn piece of shit. Coaching yourself never works optimally, but I don't trust anyone else to do it for me. I always think I know better when it comes to KB's..... so I'll actually have to try and do as I say! I've finished writing the next 2 cycles, now I gotta do it. NO FIDDLING, NO REWRITING. Only thing I can do is tiny adjustments like weight and pace as appropriate. Goal 3: Recover? Still need to somehow increase my workload which means increase recovery. Not sure how to do this. This'll be a goal of discovery and telling tales! Goal 4: Keep on growing as a coach. My team is doing well, we did great at nationals. They work really really hard and I try to keep up with them. I'm sure I could do better, therefore I will; Log all the things. Keep track of what I do and why and what the results are. (I won't bore you guys with the details)Start writing a mock-book to organise all my thoughts on this coaching for KB's. Cover 1 topic a week.Spy on other sports coaches, especially weightlifting.
