Today I finally decided what to blog about. After listening to a podcast from Logan Christopher in which he talked about blogs, saying how you don't need to be an expert on a topic to blog about it, you could blog about your journey to become an expert. So this blog is going to track my success and failings on the road to becoming a Master of Kettlebell Juggling.
I have played around with KB Juggling on and off over the last year or so, but never devoted much time to it, however this year I have decided to devote some regular training time to it, although my main focus will be powerlifting. There are two reasons I'm not going to write about my powerlifting:
- There are already tons of people writing about this already and I want my blog to be something a bit different and try to introduce people to the world of KB Juggling.
- There are lots of different skills and moves to learn in juggling, so I think it will be a more interesting read and it gives me the chance to post lots of videos
This is an ideal time to start recording my progress because I have just had an operation on the cartilage in my knee, so my conditioning/fitness is virtually non existent at the moment and strength is pretty low, so it seems like the perfect starting point.
There is a Kettlebell Juggling Ranking system recently devised coincidentally by Logan Christopher and this has helped me to structure my juggling training and given me something to work toward.
My goal for the year is to achieve Rank 3, which requires completing 20 levels. You can find more information on the ranking system here.
I think that's it for now, so I hope you enjoy my blog and please feel free to leave any comments.
