mobility in action

Last week I was highly amused to learn that a virtual friend who is actually a IRL friend of my good friend Neen (still following?!) was shocked to learn I work in ICT (Information & Communications Technology basically the updated acronym for IT). She thought I was a Curator at the Sydney Powerhouse Museum!

While that is a very cool & specific career imagined for me, alas, I am a geek by proxy. I’ve worked in ICT for 16 years now and almost 12 of those years have been at Dimension Data. 

Obviously all my opinions are my own and not on behalf of the company, but I really wanted to share with you some of the cool stuff we get to design, implement and support. 

This video is of Rob Allman, the Australian General Manager of Customer Interactive Solutions which is a department within DD.

I love working out with Kettlebells. They make you feel warrior strong!

Here are my top 5 kettlebell moves:

  1. Kettlebell Swing – the ultimate in total core workout
  2. Kettlebell Sumo Squats – the king of the squat!
  3. The Kettlebell Snatch – power & strength
  4. The Kettlebell Windmill – a little tricky to master but great back, shoulder & core move
  5. Kettlebell Halo – core & upper body strength

Doing a 15 minute kettlebell workout at the end of your run or power walk is a fantastic way to insert that intensity that burns fat.

Or feel free to do a full body kettlebell interval workout using a Gymboss timer to keep you structured and fast-paced meaning you’ll get a cardio & strength session in one. 

Apologies for not explaining all of those moves, but it’s too difficult to put it down in words.  They say a picture paints a thousand words so here are a couple of Youtube clips I found to give you a good understanding of what your form should look like when you’re using kettlebells.

Happy Friday!
