  15. Monday, 10/28/13 Catching up.... Ok so I started a juice cleanse a week ago Saturday and took 10 full days off the gym while I did my cleanse so this was my first session back. During my cleanse all I did was Taiji, qigong, meditation, and lots of stretching. Needless to say all that plus finishing the cleanse 13 lbs. lighter and I feel like a million bucks! Haven't had this much energy in a long time! After a few days of being back on my regular plant-based nutrition I'm up a few pounds. I went from 183 lbs pre-cleanse to 169 lbs the morning after the last day and weigh 172.5 lbs today. Goal is just to keep leaning up and mainting muscle and most importantly the new flexibility and mobility I achieved this week. warm-ups: flexibility & mobility work, Indian clubs, then body-weight squats, reverse hypers and a bunch of 2 rep sets of pull-ups. *pull-ups x 2 reps periodically throughout the training sessions, I varied the grip position every set. 1. squat: 140x3, 160x3, 180x3 2. 2-kettlebell jerk: 16kg x 16 / 2:00; 16kg x 20 / 1:00 3a.

  20. Monday, 10/7/13 *Starting more of a focus on kettlebell sport this week, still going to keep some of the powerlifting work in my training plan, but I'm about 90% sure I'm going to compete at the February kettlebell sport meet at the Ice Chamber gym in California, and 100% sure I'm going to compete at the Punch Gym kettlebell sport meet in April in Florida, and I have a LOT of work to get in with the 24kg bells between now and then.
