One of my friends and fellow trainers, Chad Edwards, is now the proud owner of Crossfit Local in Chapel Hill. Chad and his crew recently participated in a fundraiser to raise money for breast cancer, Barbells for Boobs.
They are now gearing up for the Carolina Fitness Challenge, a CrossFit competition to be held at CrossFit Durham this December 11th.
Back to things going on in my basement . . .
Kettlebell conditioning, for one, but not in my basement. Tuesdays and Fridays at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. This 45 minute class is designed for general full body strength and conditioning. If you are interested, send me an e-mail. email@example.com
The rest of the schedule is going to assist us in returning to weightlifting from running. So, this month, general strength and conditioning and back on the barbells. We’ll start easy and go from there.

Power Snatches, 6×2
Overhead squats 3×15
Bulgarian split squats, 10 each side
Perform the following with a single kettlebell or dumbbell
10 Goblet squats
10 overhead presses
10 reverse lunges with rotation, each leg (step back and rotate torso to one side with each step, alternate sides)
1 minute rest
Light day. Bike Ride, Walk, Row, etc.
Front Squat 3×10
Push Press 5×5
Kettlebell conditioning or Light Day
Do you prefer using kettlebell or dumbells? It seems like I can do all the exercises just with kettlebells so I'm debating if I should by both or just the kettlebell.
I find the kettlebells to be more ergonomic for a lot of things and easily replace the dumbbell.
