I moved up to the 70-pound kettlebell for two-handed swings on Monday and did fine. I finished swings on Tuesday before it began to snow. I moved inside to do getups. On Wednesday and Thursday, I did everything inside. Because I was working in my living room, I used the 35-pound kettlebell for one-handed swings and did 200 reps. The 35-pound bell feels light, but I don’t want to risk dropping anything heavier in the house. There is still snow in my driveway now, so I will probably work inside on Friday too.

I decided to skip training on Wednesday because I was hungry and my wife was home when it was time to train. Later in the day, I decided to train. I had to deal with a curious golden retriever during my getups, but things worked okay.
My massage therapist started commenting on muscle growth more than a month ago – arms, back, legs. I have begun to notice that my legs are bigger over the past week or so.
