Official Girevoy Sport Program Begins

I met with my GS coach, Christian Goldberg yesterday for her to watch my form and see where I am at.  I first met Christian at my IKFF cert two years ago, she was assisting Ken Blackburn and I must say she is a complete BOSS in GS and the nicest gal around.  I thought my form was solid but after just a few minutes she was able to pick up little nuances that I would have never noticed.

She has an amazing blog centered on Girevoy/Kettlbell Sport with alot of great info and an elegance that cannot be matched!


She has put together an outline to start on with the eventual goal of making CMS (Candidate Master of Sport) at the IKFF Nationals in October.  Due to shoulder injuries in the past (torn labrum) and the pudge around my middle I am focusing on mobility/fixation and improving my aerobic base in the beginning of my training.  Like it says on the ABOUT page, this blog tracks my PERSONAL training and growth and is NOT designed for everyone to follow.  IF this bores you, the internet is a big place so look elsewhere.  With that said here is today’s training;


Set 1: Long Cycle (LC) 20kg 2 min, 10 RPM, rest 2 min

Set 2: LC 16kg 3 min, 11 RPM, rest 3 min

Set 3: LC 16kg 3 min, 11 RPM, rest 3 min

Set 4: 2 x 16kg rack hold 2 min, rest 2 m


  • Push-up 20x
  • 2 x 20kg Bent Row 20x
  • 24kg Back weighted Good Morning 20x
  • Row 2.5km


Also, my mother is having surgery today and I just want to say that I love you and my thoughts and prayers are with you.

I waited patiently for the Lord, He turned to me and heard my cry. – Psalm 40:1
