  • LOL i can email you my pirate copy of enter kettlebell as well if you want. you will poss use it more than me. you dont you-tube but we found a you-tube of the YAYOG guy bar hopping. OMG he literally bounces from the floor to bar height without even looking like he is trying. the kids were entranced. in my BBY book he has a whole stack of progressions which i like. i havent seen YAYOG so it will be interesting to hear what you think of it.

      • i have found it is actually worth you-tubing to find someone talking about it. you can copy off watching but you dont get which muscles you are supposed to be using and all that shoulder stuff can be quite tricky. good example. clubbell shoulder cast. if you do it wrong, it is an arm cast. unless you hear someone talking about it, it is easy to do, as the nuances are subtle. it is all with the lats and you need to do the cast like you are standing between 2 sheets of glass. the mind boggles at how much damage i would have done if i really were LOL i do learn better myself from seeing actual moving visuals and listening so that is MHO on the matter.

          I have been looking at some of the videos on swings and get up for the last 2 days, which is how I figured out that my getup for was hosed.... having watched the video I now have a better idea of what a get up looks like. Thanks for the video tip.

            • Hi all

              I've got YAYOG and it's a bit lively, the progressions are quite good, it's tough though, he does recommend you to experiment with making your own programme as well.

              In the book there's a photo of him jumping onto a park table on one leg, the mans a freak, a strong one though!

              Seaweed, I was going to reply in the thread you started about BBY, I've not seen it, so I can't really say what the programmes like, but with YAYOG you progress to the next level when you feel comfortable of being able to make the jump.

              And Enter the Kettlebell is mint, I've also purchased 'The Ultimate Kettlebell Workout' by Dave Randolph, which I'm thinking of doing a bout of.

              Cheers

              • He does recommend you progress to YAYOG once you can do all of BBY. what is the most difficult bending exercise in YAYOG btw? he doesnt look like a freak which is the bit i like. he just looks like a normal guy you could see in a gym.

                  ANZAC, as in soldiers in World War 1 and World War 2? battle of Galipoli, DDay, Island hopping campaign of World War 2 etc? ANZAC day is a memorial day for your war dead, similar to Memorial Day here in the US?

                    Yes. Can't speak for NZ, but here it's a bigger deal than Remembrance Sunday (which would be the UK version). The ANZAC Day tradition | Australian War Memorial

                    It's hugely important, although I suppose Australia Day is gaining ground.
                    I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.

                    • yes that is correct. i think it is important to remember them myself and i am a pacifist. what they did was huge.

                          For me it's (I think) the one called 'beat your boots', which is when you bend at the waist, grab your ankles then squat down until your bum touches your heels, whilst still holding you ankles, but thats probably because my hip flexors are toilet!

                          It doesn't really go into bendng excercises that much to be honest, which I why I bought a book on Yoga to try and improve my rapidly stiffening joints!

                          And I agree, I don't want to be a gigazmatron, just strong, fit and generally uptogether for me age.

                          Cheers

                            some of the whanau were on the wrong side as well. but still. i try not to cry when they do the last parade or whatever it is and lower the flag and i never cry.

                            By bending D, i mean the ones which start with the simplest one being the good morning?

                              From where ever there from, they gave more than I ever can.
