My New Year's fitness resolution landed me in the hospital - NBC News

I got a jump start on my New Year’s fitness goal a few years ago with a killer workout on New Year’s Eve. And when I say killer, I mean that literally.

My fitness goal for the year was a kettlebell trifecta called Iron Maiden that included a weighted pull-up with a 24 kg (about 53 pounds) kettlebell attached to a belt. That was about half my body weight, so to reach this lofty goal I’d have to push hard to increase upper body strength beyond what a couple years of powerlifting had already built.

So, freshly back from a holiday travel break, I hit the gym with a personal trainer where I did pull-ups until I couldn’t do another. Then he spotted me till I had nothing left. Then more work on machines and with dumbbells until my arms wouldn’t straighten. “What a great workout!” I thought later when I couldn’t maneuver my arms to put my coat on.
