What a glorious day here in Belfast! This whole week is to be nice. Could it be that summer is finally here? I hope so 🙂
Today’s workout was taken from a suggestion made by Timothy Bell of Bell’s Taekwondo (Halifax, Canada), also on Facebook under Kettlebells Halifax.
The workout has 3 different exercises, 10 reps per exercise. The goal is to complete as many rounds as you can in 15 minutes. This workout is not only good for practicing some foundation Kettlebell exercises but is also a great fat burning cardio workout – believe me!!
I finally worked out how to set my Gymboss Interval Timer for a single 15 minute interval – sometimes I wonder about my intelligence. I then completed the exercises below:
- 2-handed KB Swings with 16kg (10 reps)
- Single KB Snatches with 12kg (10 reps each side)
- Burpees (10 reps)
I considered adding a pushup into the burpees, but on hindsight I’m so glad I didn’t LOL. This was a tough cardio workout, as it has the added challenge of the burpees and the “competition”. I did have to slow myself down when my snatches became sloppy, so don’t sacrifice your form for the challenge.
I completed 6 full rounds and then 10 swings, 10 snatches (both sides) and 1 burpee. The first 3 rounds I was fast, then I hit the wall at round 4 and 5, the last round I got my second wind. My hands are in bits though – keep meaning to get chalk!
Anyway, if you decide to try this workout, let me know how you did by posting a comment below.
Will be back soon.
