Training The Girls To Be Strong

Training the girls to be strong...because they can be.

No more little 8kg and 12kg kettlebells! Although they're a great place start, they're also great to look back on, a reminder of your starting point.

In my own training I rarely see anything less than the 20kg, and try to make sure I stick with the 24kg. Sharon and Dawn are headed in the same direction. Sharon very rarely uses anything less than the 16kg, she's only 5'2" and Dawn rarely uses anything less than the 20kg. Here Sharon is snatching the 20kg kettlebell and Dawn is snatching the 24kg kettlebell. Both have goals of snatching the 24kg and the 32kg respectively.

They'll do it too!

I think women have been conditioned to equate physical strength with being masculine but fortunately there are people like you evangelizing the opposite.

I couldn't agree with you more. Thank you for the kind words as well. Get ready for your 32kg!
