As I was short for time today, I thought I would do a workout posted by Mickela in one of her comments. She designed this workout herself and I thought it would be a great one to do today as there is a good balance of exercises. I am not 100% sure if I got the “side to side sit ups” right, but I did a version of them anyway.
Using your Gymboss Interval Timer set it for 1 manual interval (count down) of 15 minutes and try and complete as many rounds of these exercises (and reps) as you can:
- Two-Handed KB Swing x 20 reps (I used my 20kg)
- Russian Twists (or side to side sit ups) x 20 reps (total) (I used my 12kg)
- Single Leg Push Up (right) x 10 reps
- Single Leg Push Up (left) x 10 reps
I managed to complete 5 full rounds plus 20 swings and nearly a Russian twist 😉
A great combination of cardio, core, strength and resistance exercises which work the front and back, upper and lower and the sides of the body. The only thing I may have added is some sort of squatting exercise with maybe a Press, like thrusters or those Vertical Swing Burpees I like to include a lot LOL. All in all I really enjoyed this workout!
Thank you Mickela, you saved my brain from having to come up with a new workout today 🙂
Hope you will all give it a try. Even if you’re not short for time you can always add something to it, or even increase the time.
Tomorrow I will be posting the second tutorial video where I cover the Kettlebell Clean. For anyone wanting to be able to rack a kettlebell properly, this is an essential move to master and I would argue that it is a compulsory lift in KB training, so please tune in for that.
Let me, and Mickela know your thoughts and scores for this workout today and I’ll be back tomorrow with more.
