Today, my partner in crime and I met with Jen, our trainer.  A week or two ago, I had inquired about doing a kettlebell workout.  I was so glad that today was the day.  I had been intrigued by them ever since I attended a demo about them at the Fit Bloggin’ conference last year.

I spent about 20 minutes on the elliptical for a warm up.

Then, we met up for our workout.  All of our weights through the rows used the kettlebells.

  • Multi-Directional Lunges x 5ea. way

3 sets of the following:

  • Kettlebell Swings 15lb x 1:00 minute
  • KB Push Press 12lb x :30 seconds each arm
  • Windmill 5lb x 15ea side
  • Twisting Squats 15lb x 30

2 sets of the following:

  • Tactile Lunges 15lb x length of gym (passing the kettlebell under your leg after each step of the lunge)
  • Bentover Row 15lb x 20ea. side
  • Mountain Climbers on Slideboard x 50 (with crazy booties to help my feet slide)

1 set of the following:

  • Box Squat to Press 18lb bodybar x 20
  • Isometric Bicep Curl 12lb x 20ea arm

My partner in crime had to leave a bit early.  Jen helped me stretch out well.  I think that was a good thing.

An hour is a really long time to do strength training.  I’m already sore.  It was crazy.  It was hard.  It was good for me.  I could fall in love with kettlebell training.   I can’t wait until next week’s workout.
