    Yes, I do snatches with my "bad" shoulder. The surgery was successful, but I've been very careful about rehab--there's NO way I want to go through that again! (Initial injury was from a car wreck.) I'm just very careful with technique and the weight I use... I'm not out to impress anyone, I just want to be able to scoop up the grandkid and run away from the escaped zoo lion!

    I made my own foam roller with a short length of PVC pipe (4" diameter), an old yoga mat cut to fit, and duct tape. Works a charm, all for about $2.50 in supplies!

    My problem with KBs is that the sizes in the gym jump from 35 lbs to 55 lbs. So, I am up to 80 2-handed swings on 35 KB, working up to 100 swings, but on the 55 lbs one I can do maybe 8-10 at a time, and then lose form. I am about to ask the gym to invest in a couple of 'intermediate' sizes. I mean, up to 35 lbs they go up by 5 lbs, what's with the 20 lbs jump?
    Leida, WalMart has some dirt cheap kettlebells online. I don't know if WalMart is up there in Canada or not, but if you do, you can order online and have them delivered to your local store for free. I have all my kettlebells at home.

    Everytime I do snatches, my left shoulder makes all sorts of noise, even after a good warm up. I always think "oh oh".... That is a great idea for a homemade foam roller. For a giant piece of foam, foam rollers are sooo damn expensive.

    I am sure WalMart has them, but I exercise in the gym. It's my 'me time' away from it all! I have plenty of equipment at home from my 'DIY' days, and I don't want any more. My gym is fab, so I am sure they will listen to the request

    Day 25 - 30 Blood Sugar Solution (Sept 21 – 26)

    Sorry, this weekend I was away, my daughter had a soccer tournament this past weekend so I was up in South Carolina for the weekend. Ate clean the whole time, not too difficult to do once you know what you are doing….. Ok, I lied about clean eating the whole time, I did break down and have a bagel with cream cheese one day, bet you can’t tell which day that was…….

    Day 25 Moring BS = 144
    Day 26 Moring BS = 152
    Day 27 Moring BS = 136
    Day 28 Moring BS = 211
    Day 29 Moring BS = 160
    Day 30 Moring BS = 144

    So I have 12 days left of this 42 day Blood Sugar Solution. I decided that I am going to work out really hard the next 12 days to see where things land.

    Wow, one bagel did that.
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.
