KB Girl

KB Girl preps for the world championship

Recommended Posts

Right after this challenge is the kettlebell sport world championship. It's in a giant sport complex just outside of Dublin on 23-26th of may. 

I'll be competing in second division, which for women uses 2x16kg kettlebells. (First division is 2x20kg, Pro devision is 2x24kg). I'll also be playing representative to my national federation and coaching my team. There'll be around 18 people from the Netherlands, at least 10 from my gym/team. We have no Pro lifters yet, but I do have 2 lifters in first division this year. 

 

So... challenge; 

 

1. Train

- every week; snatch 2x, jerk 2x, longcycle 1x, oly lift 1x, squat 1x, deadlift 1x

- try to accumulate 100km of rowing over the 5 weeks

- keep a lunges, push and pull counter

 

2. Sleep

- keep folding laundry before bed

- lower green bed time to 22:30, yellow to 23:30

 

3. Eat vegetables three times a day.......

- at least one of which has to be green

- and eat fatty fish every week

 

Well I had to add a nutrition goal.. I have reasonably healthy habits that I have relied on for the past 3 years without making any kind of improvement.. I tried to drop some weight last challenge but I guess I'm just really not ready for that yet. I think I'll compete in a higher weight class for worlds and just focus on improving something small. 

 

Let's go!

My thoughts as well. You could end up a class below but also a bit tired because of it.

Mostly my mind to be honest- I'm using food as stress relief and haven't found another method yet x)

I'm eagerly following along for mega KB inspo!

I'll try! I always secretly think the jerks/snatches are boring for you other KB people and I can't actually do any of the other stuff, hehehehe.

Benefits of a tiny fringe sport :D

It's honestly a bit of a dilemma.. it's either under 75 or over 75.. I'm at 77,5 - so I might end up losing that weight without doing anything as I'm normally just under 75 and have just been stress eating too much.. so... if I decide to go with 75+ I'll have to actually keep my weight high enough to be able to compete (and no you can't weigh with clothes on). 

I have until april 23th to decide.. Maybe I should go -75 because I can always dump some water, but ugh.

Once I started doodling I couldn't stop x) 

 

The rowing is not on there, because I am tracking it on a different page.. it's a long story, but I was challenged to row 1 million meters in 1 year.. which is crazy, but also inspiring. Even if I don't make it, I'm curious what it will do to my endurance/fitness and body. I've been building up my rowing the past 2 challenges, but I'm slow and everything hurts after a bit, so I couldn't quite make the 20k yet.. let's see what happens this week :D

1 million is a big number :o 

 

Love the doodles, especially the little train.

It's a very big number, but really it's just a thousand kilometers. x)

Monday was a rest day and I spend it gardening and doodling in the evening. The KB child is now big enough to appreciate gardening and it'll be nice for her to learn where food comes from. (only edible stuff in my garden, it's a rule). 

I also had some work hours in the morning and I spend those finishing the training plans for my athletes. I have only a vague idea of what I'm doing, but that seems to be the norm and it seems to be enough so I'm rolling with it. 

 

Tuesday was a work day and I spend it.. avoiding doing the taxes, when I didnt have clients anyway. So I did my training at 21:30, which wasn't ideal for bed time. But I did the training (2:30 jerks with 2x18kg at a 12 pace, a PR.. an easy deadlift wave ladder and a total of 2k rowing) and I ate 3 servings of veggies (carrots and cucumbers with lunch, tomato soup for a snack and green beans for dinner).
