CFF Fitness 12kg Kettlebell

Finally on my way with my kettlebell swing habit starting with a 12kg

I have been saying that I am going to swing a kettlebell for 90-seconds every 60-minutes. Well, I actually started in earnest today but with a 12kg kettlebell instead of my 24kg bell, and every 30-minutes instead of every 60

I made that mistake with terrible consequences and the reason is clear: when you only swing a kettlebell for 90-seconds every hour, the bounce from warmup to cool down is rapid and the stress to the body is spread across the entire day.

My favorite (hard) boiled egg recipe is all about the steam

I am a huge fan of Chef John and his Food Wished channel on YouTube. I am also a fan of not messing up the simplest of recipes: making a hard-boiled egg.

My first official road ride of the year and it was glorious

Why did I stop riding every day to go everywhere? Probably because I wanted to get steps in or because I was riding at awesome CYCLEBAR Columbia Pike every day, or because it was too cold, too far, I was running too late, or because of the weather, because of impending storms, or because of laziness. Because of laziness. Because of Uber.
