A1) Half Kneeling Filly Press:
5 x 3 @ 3011
The racked kettlebell does not have to increase week to week, but choose a challenging load.
No pause at the bottom but the turnaround should be controlled with little to no “bounce.” Go a little heavier than last week if you can on both the press and the racked load. If you cannot use a heavier load for the presses then use the same load as last week and increase the tempo with a hold for :02 overhead.
5 x 3 @ 3111
Add weight to last week. Note the tempo has a 1 second pause on the floor, no touch-and-go.

This Week at CFSBK in Review
2. “Anytime we try something outside our comfort zone, we can feel a lot of uncertainty, doubt, and fear. That’s normal and expected. It doesn’t mean we have to let those thoughts and feelings stop us. Natalie doesn’t.” On Tuesday we caught you up on 85-year-young Natalie R.‘s work with Coach Whit.
3. For more great stuff like Natalie’s story, follow our coaching staff on Insta! We posted this handy list not too long ago.
4. CFSBKer and leukemia-survivor Casey M. shared his story with us and told us about Haymakers for Hope, a charity boxing event at the House of Blues in Boston this May. Check out Wednesday’s post to learn more about Casey, and be sure to donate to his fundraising campaign!
