I am so SoCal, you're Dead to me.
Yesterday was my first day back to deadlifting in quite awhile. It felt great. To be honest, I deadlifted a couple sets circa 6 weeks ago - before that it had been a year hiatus. Not on purpose. We moved to So Cal about a year ago. At the time I was training in preparation for the SFG (StrongFirst Kettlebell) instructor certification. After spending several hours in the gym it's nice to step outside into the Southern California weather. Plus I have seen pictures of the certification weekend being held outside in San Diego. So I threw my kettlebells in my truck and found a park; they are everywhere around here. Thus began my kettlebell park workouts. By the time I achieved my certification (several months of training outside) I didn't want to go back inside to workout. I was spoiled. So I started Pavel's Rite of Passage kettlebell program at a park that had pull-up bar. Last month I went to a seminar on program design. I have been reading and re-reading the manual since attending. The program design is much different than what I have done previously. But because of the author of the program, I am excited to give it a try. I will be practicing deadlifts 2 to 5 days per week with varying intensity and varying volume. Using this method, I wrote up a "welcome back" 4 week deadlift routine. So... here we go!
P.S. Deadlifts, you were never dead to me.
