Athlete Journal: Chris Duffin, Entry 61 – Just For Fun

Sometimes people take themselves too seriously with their lifting. Why? Because it’s fun. This week I decided to hit a PR on bottoms up kettlebell presses – for no good reason except I wanted to.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Welcome to the Athlete Journal of world champion powerlifter Chris Duffin. Follow Chris as he trains and competes in various events over the coming year. Chris’s journal will be posted every Tuesday. You can also read about Chris on his website Kabuki Warrior.
