Fitness Challenge: Week 1. Again.
Last week I posted week 1 of the fitness challenge before realizing that most of you probably hadn’t had enough time to gather your equipment.
So hopefully now everyone has a jumprope and a kettle bell (or non-slippery dumbell). Maybe you’ve even gotten around to watching the videos on how to properly swing a kettlebell and wishful thinking says you’ve practiced. Somehow my jumprope order didn’t get processed correctly so I get to re-order mine again today. I’m not sure how that happened, probably all the tears blocking my vision from re-homing our pups. I didn’t
Here is the new and improved Week 1 Challenge:
Warm-up before each workout:
- 50 jump-ropes
- 20 air squats
- 20 sit-ups
- 20 walking lunges
Do as many kettle-bell swings as you can without stopping. As soon as you have to break you’re done. Write this # down somewhere!!!
Many thanks to Dane for the inspiration. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as I did.
Set a timer for 10 minutes. Do as many rounds as possible in the 10 minutes. You can NOT put the kettle bell down during a round, if you do put it down the round doesn’t count and you’ll have to start all over. You can rest between rounds. Keep track of how many rounds you did.
Optional Day 3:
- Do as many kettle bell swings as you can without stopping.
- Once you stop take a minute to breathe.
- Do 4 more kettle bell swings. Rest between swings if you need to. =)
