AKC Fitness Long Island for the first time. Putting on stellar performances, our dynamic duo are now inspiring many other members to take the challenge and join our kettlebell lifting team.
We all learned a few valuable lessons in Vegas, both on the platform and off. In a previous article, I highlighted Erin's time-crunch as the main focus of the story. The month prior to competition was particularly difficult between parenting and business travel. Even so, both lifters put on solid performances with just about six months of training. John, working in the 16 kilogram division completed 86 Jerks and 150 snatches (75 per hand) and seemed to barely break a sweat. Erin, also working with a single 16 kilogram kettlebell, did an impressive 55 Jerks per hand, as well as 40 / 25 Snatches.
