Monday – Back to the Lauren Brook’s Kettlebells for Women program. I’m starting at month 2. Today was Tabata 2 plus 3 rounds of Joint Mobility. I hate Tabata but it’s over and done with before you know it so I really shouldn’t complain. I did the sh swings with the 12kg and the dh with the 16kg. I DESPISE squat thrusts but did them anyway. I tried the jumping jacks but they hurt my knee so I substituted pushups. All to a 20 second work/10 second rest.
I also had a lovely beach walk and threw in an hour of yogaglo for good measure. I just felt like I had the energy to do more since I had taken 2 days of rest over the weekend.
Tuesday – 60 min bush walk in AM, PM workout: 3 30/30 rounds of (chest press w/12kg, clean & squat w/8kg, alt swings w/12kg) then 3 20/10 rounds of (pullover to crunch w/8kg, Russian twist w/12kg, mini-plank, farmer walks w/12&8kg), JM x2
Wednesday – 60 min bush walk in AM, JMx2, 20 min yogaglo hip opener, foam rolling & stretches in front of Rugby
Thursday – 60 min bush walk, 3x (3/3 bodyweight windmill, 5/5 bodyweight single deadlift, 12 alt swings w/12kg), 3x 20/20 (goblet squat w/8kg, push-up, single arm row w/8kg, high pull w/8kg), 3x 20/20 (Russian twist w/12kg, mini-plank).
A friend who is a massage therapist indicated that she thought working with 8, 12 & 16kg kettlebells was TOO heavy. I suppose without proper training/education, she may be right but I feel totally comfortable with these weights. Actually, once I recover from my surgery, a 20kg kettlebell will be finding its way to my home. 🙂 I LOVE my kettle bells!
Friday – 50 min bush walk. I just couldn’t NOT go for my morning walk this morning. 50 min yin yoga.
