Next Goal: StrongFirst Sinister

If you follow me on Instagram @IronBodyByArtemis then you know that a few weeks ago I set a new goal to achieve StrongFirst Sinister.

I’ve been eyeing this goal for a little while now and I’m ready to start training for it.

For women sinister is 10, 32kg (70lbs) one hand swings to chest level every 30 seconds for 5 minutes, switching hands each time, total 100 swings, 50 each hand.

One minute rest.

Followed by 10 minutes of alternating single get-ups with 24kg (53lbs) each minute on the minute for a total of 10 get-ups, 5 each side.

24kg get-ups are no problem, but I’ve been procrastinating because the thought of swinging 32kg (70lbs) with one hand, which is 62% of my bodyweight, makes me want to vomit a little. However, when I learned about the Iron Maiden Challenge over 7 years ago, I felt the same way. At that time 24kg seemed like a massive weight for someone my size to pull-up, strict military press, and pistol squat. But I trained for it and completed it, so why not Sinister?

After finishing up my 12-week Wedding Shred program a few weeks ago, heavy weights were feeling lighter than ever to swing, so I figured now is great time to train for sinister.

When I posted that I was going to start training for my goal of StrongFirst Sinister, many of you decided to join me on this quest and also train for either Simple or Sinister.
