Hey all,

Right now I am in Paducah, Kentucky with Ms Nia Shanks and the weather is fantastic! The weather on my trip has made me so happy because the last few months back home has been freezing! :) However, looking at the forecast for Kansas City, (where we’re attending the Fitness Summit), it might get SNOW!! But I am sure it will still be an amazing trip :)

My time in Phoenix was great. Bret Contreras conducted EMG experiments on me while I did various lifts and we got to train together at his friend’s amazing home gym. I will post more about this later … and I have a training video from our last session that Bret kindly put together.

I am so excited about the next few days. I will post more about my trip next week when I get home. For now, I’ll leave you with this very simple, very quick workout.

 

The Workout

 

1) Reverse Lunges: 3×8-15  (I started with 40lbs and then added one 12kg KB and finished with adding 2x12kg KBs) (my reps: 15, 12, 8 )

2a) Burpees: 3×10

2b) KB Swings: 3×15 (I did double swings with 2x12kg)

The heat made this workout twice as hard! The weighted vest added a new feel to the lunges because of how the weight is distributed… It felt more challenging IMO.

Okay, everyone, that’s all for now.

Be back next week :)

    Glad you are having a good time. It’s beautiful in the gorge. Just planted some rasp plants!
    And did an interval jog/walk. I love spring and summer!
