Had a look at the crawling on you tube
I thought it was a wind up!ha

It actually feels good, like its stretching by back out a bit

Loving the kettlebells, gotta go an pick up a 14kg one I won on flea bay
I've been doing 20x reps with the 8kg then 20x with the 6kg then a rest
So definitely need a little more weight
I don't want to lift too much more yet, as I can definitely feel it in my lower back,( my s1 disk is not too clever, never got it sorted)

But my overall strength feels to be getting better,(just done an exhibition at excel, which included unloading and loading a forty foot trailer full of furniture, as well as building a show stand, and no aches/pains/struggles etc)

I know what you mean,  I didn't believe it when I heard about it. Rolling and crawling isn't training....how wrong I was. It's so simple I've attached the link below. I'm familiar with these coaches through kettlebells so knew they were on to something, and having been doing the presets every morning for a year they definitely are. Have a gander through their site it will tell you more than I can.

If your looking to get a new kb, get a 16kg from wolverson or  rogue. I've got competition bells but you can also buy cast iron bells, both are good. Competition bells are used in kettlebell sport which I might do in the future.

When do you feel pain in the lower  back?

Not pain, just the lower back muscles tensing?
That make sense?
I've copied the strong first technique when swinging the bell.
I think it's just my body not used to using core strength

I'm picking a 14kg bell up today that I got from eBay 8.50, so cheap enough
I actually prefer the squarer shape ones, they fit nice when doing shoulder presses etc, but I reckon heavier bells for swinging, I'm gonna need the nice wide handles, my hands are quite big

Try sitting further back with your hips (push your backside right back as the bell meets the groin on the backswing), let bell swing all the way back. This will ensure you provide momentum on the upswing with your glutes rather than your lower back. It can sometimes be a very small difference but you will notice it, especially when you start to use heavier bells.

Bit of an update

Played three games and feeling ok
First game ended up doing long on to long on for 35 overs,so mobility is not too bad
Battings fine, definitely can't use a bat over 2.8, as way too late on shots, so really need to build up the strength.
Bowled a few overs yesterday, and felt really good, no golfers/tennis elbow and shoulders fine too

Had a medical at work two weeks ago, that scared the life outta me
Blood pressure was 154/115
I've got low good cholesterol
Way way overweight/obese
Etc etc

Managed to speak to my doctor who basically said what a load of crap
Leant me a Bp monitor for a week, and my blood pressure is very healthy so major panic over, but do need to work on the good cholesterol part

My chorestol was 6.6 doctor put me on  30 mil  chorestol busting Statins which caused shoulder calf  leg pain and stiffness
So I stopped taking them doctor had a go at me  and stated well that's better than an having a stroke.
Apparently it's recommended  anyone over 50 should take them.

No chance of me ever taking any medication, full stop.
My step dads said the same thing about statins

I'm sure in years to come, the gangsters behind the drugs industry will be made accountable

I'm convinced diet is the answer

Batted for 40 overs on Saturday and bowled 11 overs too
Don't feel too bad,(managed a kettlebells session yesterday) apart from a little tenderness in my left forearm/elbow
Longest I've batted for a while, and was not up for many singles, never mind twos or threes, but power wise I was ok.
Not sure what our straight boundary is, but was driving full bungers to it ok

Just wish I'd started with the kettlebells years ago.

I'm gonna look at playing tennis over the winter, hopefully to just improve the mobility side of it

Recently started pilates and can feel the difference on sunday mornings

Don't feel half as sore and seem to be way stronger in the core and able to bat longer

Agree on Kettles though as throw some of those in occasionally and so many good exercises its like an exercise version of swiss army knife.

Cor blimey!!!!  I did a Fitness Boot Camp tonight in the local park - that was a bit of a challenge for tubby little me!!!

Lots of sprints, squats, bunny hops, wide arm press-ups, shuttle runs etc- bloody hard work with my level of fitness.

Apparently it's different every week, next week will be sprints and then kettle thingies, boxing, waving ropes around etc.


But strangely, I actually enjoyed it - despite the fact i wanted to vomit in the bushes afterward. I thinks it's a combination of the variety and all the lycra-clad, wobbly lady's botties.

I shall be going again! :)
