One week away from my first competition

Next Saturday, I'll be competing in an IKFF Kettlebell Sport Competition in Santa Monica. It will be my first competition to even see, much less in which I participate.

Coach Jason Dolby giving me some pointers
I'm excited! I will be competing in the Long Cycle event, with two 16kg kettlebells.

For those of you who aren't kettlebell nerds, the Long Cycle event is when you do repeated kettlebell clean and jerks for ten minutes. You cannot set down the kettlebells, and the only rest is holding them overhead or "in the rack," which is the position pictured above.

If you are in the Los Angeles area next Saturday (January 21, 2012), feel free to come by and watch us all compete.

I'm not sure of the competition schedule yet, but I believe they will be checking weight at 9am.

Speaking of weight, I need to be careful for the next week. I'm on the bubble of two weight classes and if I don't keep my appetite under control, I'll be competing against guys who are up to 20lbs heavier and potentially much stronger... The days of free eating are over. Until next Saturday.
