It’s what I call my “Travel Kettlebell”. It’s a light KB that’s rusted, getting holes in it, paint is all chipped off and I swear, it’s my favorite one, other than the two kettlebells that were gifts from two of my staff and I absolutely treasure them). Going to throw out a chance for someone to Win a box of Spark if they can guess the names, of the two Kettlebells not the staff. You have to read the entire blog though…
May I present the 1-2-3-4 Workout: (perfect for doing at the track or anywhere you can take off for a short run)
- It’s 1 Mile Runs (could be reduced to 1 lap of any distance, or even a sprint or jog if that works better)
- With 2 Minute Rests
- Repeating the cycle 3 Times
- Completing 4 Strength Moves (below)
Here are your directions:
Complete 25 Swings, Squats, Pushups and Crunches – Immediately Get-up and Run 1 Mile as fast as you can (here’s a little tip…do the squats and swings first so your legs have a chance to recover while you do pushups and crunches). I did my first set in the wrong order and those first couple minutes trying to run was rough!
Once you get back from the run, rest 2 minutes then repeat it again.
Then, after you’ve done it for the 3rd time go right into a final set of the 4 strength moves and then you’re done.
I’ll tell you what was amazing, I was able to be outside and got this done in a really short amount of time. I got home before Brandy and the kids even thought – “Where is Dad and why is he so late?”
Give it a try, get outside this weekend and be active and healthy. It’s one of those things you will NEVER regret!
Back to my two favorite Kettlebells, can anyone guess their names? First person to answer correctly will WIN a box of Advocare Spark.
Here’s a little hint: GTS Kettlebell Instructor Kim Day gave me the first one (at which time we realized he had lost that exact same amount of weight since he began training with GTS – 106lbs). The second one came from my Lead Trainer Kathy – it’s slightly lighter. 1-2-3-4 begin the guessing!
Okay, one more hint – Both names begin with B.
