Myomy Monkey Workout by Jen Sinkler
First a little update on my back issues. I now know that it is what I originally thought … SI Joint! After seeing a specialist in London last week, he was able to scan me and see that I have bilateral Sacro-ilitis. The good news is that I AM allowed, and SHOULD, continue to strength train “within reason”. This means work on movements I know don’t bother the joint too much and focus on mobility and being sensible with the weight. The hardest task for me right now is walking! I have been back in the gym squatting, deadlifting, hip thrusting, doing pull ups etc this week (with lighter loads), and I even managed some KB Swings with a lighter KB However, the major difficulty remains when I do any unilateral stuff (hence the issues walking). So swimming, stairmaster and cycling are all out for the time-being. But I don’t care about those options, because I can still lift. When I lift, it feels better and better, so I know it will only be a matter of time before I am walking pain-free!
So I am very happy as things are improving. And I am making it my mission to be 100% healthy!
I hope to be back on the workout “saddle” very soon
That’s my little update out of the way, now let’s see what’s in store for you from this week’s guest Trainer.
This is a short and sweet workout with minimal equipment (1 Kettlebell and your Gymboss Interval Timer on Stopwatch mode) … and you will need a bit of space.
The video says it all, but for those who like to print my workouts, here’s the written breakdown:
Complete 3 rounds of the following 5 exercises:
- KB Snatch Lunge (right) x 10 reps
- KB Snatch Lunge (left) x 10 reps
- KB/DB Bent Over Row (right) x 10 reps
- KB/DB Bent Over Row (left) x 10 reps
- Monkey Shuffle x 10 Metres (you could do 5m each way if you have less space)
Hope you all like this one … I personally can’t wait to try the Snatch Lunge and Monkey Shuffle!
