    i think we get smarter about it as we get older and try to avoid kettlebells. only pick fights that you are not willing to lose LOL says she limping around after having jumped off a 2m fence down a slope into long grass!

    I have CC 1 and 2. the progressions are pretty good. The 2nd book is a bit different than the 1st.

    were you coming from a place of already being able to do most of the body weight stuff? i so need to see if i can get a copy here or one of those rather convenient pirate pdfs to check out first. i have body by you on the way which is by mark lauren i think. and i have been studying the strength training anatomy book to work out what to do and not do to work around the ankle. my plan was to put it all together in a coherent manner at the weekend.

    no, I started doing CC from a position of not having exercised in 15 years, so I started at progression 1 of every exercise that I was doing (push ups, pull ups, squats, and leg raises), I wanted to go to kettlebells to give myself a break from CC. I was starting to get bored doing the same stuff every week, so I wanted to change things to break any plateaus.. I prefer body weight exercises because I don't want to go to a gym or buy a crap load of equipment.; I can do bodyweight work at the farm, although shoveling chicken poo and copost piles with a hay fork is a workout in itself...

    i always say the reason i go to the gym is to get my full ROM in on all the exercises and some balance. good example. my right leg is alot stronger than my left leg. all the hills i go up, all the obstacles i jump over etc, i lead with my right leg. so when i am at the gym, once a week, i work my left side separately so it has to keep up. i work around things like my slightly dodgy rotator cuff too which shovelling guano would only poss aggravate. but since i can strengthen it, it is getting better. so can you do a proper pull up now from doing CC when you couldnt at the start?
