Today’s workout is a little bit of everything, strength, cardio, plyometrics, Kettlebells and body weight all rolled into one workout. I love this type of training as it gives me both a challenge and a buzz (even after 3 nights) 🙂 I must be mad, but it’s the only chance I’ll get this weekend to film.
My studio is becoming the dumping ground for all our packing for the move, so had to rearrange a few things prior to this workout – which practically counted towards my warm up!
For this workout I have set the reps per exercise and timed the workout to a suitable duration with the stop watch on my Gymboss Interval Timer . You can time it to your time availability and concentrate always on quality reps. As usual the first exercise is the most complex using the most muscle groups, but I set low reps as I wanted to use a heavier weights thus making this the strength exercise. As an advanced exercise I have included the plyometric/clapping push up. If you cannot perform this exercise from your feet, then you can reduce the difficulty by performing it from your knees instead. But even give one rep a try from your feet (keeping your core tight and hips in line with your spine – no pikes guys 😉 ). The other exercises are straight forward enough, giving you a good balance between the anterior and posterior sides of the body, in combination with upper and lower body exercises too. This all equals a full body bootcamp and more calories burned.
I am very chatty this morning for some reason, maybe because I have a few days off AT LAST 😀
Now for the exercises:
- Double KB Clean and Press into Front Squat x 6 reps
- Two Sumo Squat Jump into Evil Burpee x 12 reps
- Double KB Bent Over Row x 12 reps
- Clapping Push Ups x 6 reps
- Two- Handed KB Swing x 24 reps
- Evil Jumps x 12 reps (sorry about this one guys LOL)
I managed 3 rounds in 25 minutes and 18 seconds.
This was a tough workout! I found it fun but challenging. Try and push through the pain 😉 this will bring you to the next level in you training. Don’t be put off by new challenges, embrace them. You can often surprise yourself at what you can achieve and if not, then you know where you need to improve.
I’m off now to have a nap before I get ready for a long overdue girls night out!! Will miss X-Factor, but I’ll survive 😉
