A few days ago I got some wild hair that I am going to be a real, live competitive athlete and actually compete in Kettlebell sport this October. So basically I have 4 months to prepare. I am not even close to where I need to be to not publicly humiliate myself. I need a program to maximize both strength and endurance. I have never trained for anything in my life so this is very new to me so go easy please.
For those who don't know Kettlebell sport entails doing as many recs as possible in a 10 minute time period. Person with the most reps wins.
My coach wants me practicing twice daily so basically two 10 minute sets. I'm pretty sure I'm doing biathalon so we're talking snatchs and jerks. Beyond that I have kettlebell training class twice a week and do a typical "boot camp" twice a week as well as a restorative class (pilates-esque) for flexibility once a week.
I eat low carb and have for as long as I can remember but I am more than willing to change any and all of my macros if it will help me with strength and endurance gains. I am willing to do any additional training anyone thinks would be helpful. I am resistance to pick up addition strength training aside from kettle bell because form is so different in kettlebell from traditional lifting and it messes with my head a bit. However, if the group says I must then I will.
Oh and I need to lose 5 lbs to get into a lower weight class. Actually the weight loss is lowest priority but it sure would be nice to not have to go up against the Amazons who will so completely kick my ass.
