Exercise of the Week- August 25

25 Aug

Kettlebell Windmills=core stability, flexibilty, and strength of your shoulder joint. Very functional exercise that will help you in other areas of your fitness regimens!

Turkish Get-ups=deceptively challenging yet fun! Starting from a supine position into a standing position, then back down again with your arm extended involves just about every muscle to work. Try the exercise with no weight, then progress. Don’t have a Kettlebell or Smartbell-don’t worry! Any piece of equipment will do.

Choppy 1 Mile w/ Intervals

1 Aug

If running on the treadmill makes you fall asleep just thinking about it, then try this choppy workout:

  • run 4-quarter miles interspersed with strength training exercises.

This is another type of circuit interval training since your still alternating between high and low intensities, but at the low intensity stage, you’ll be weight training instead of slowing down to a jog and/or walk.

1. run .25 miles at a challenging yet manageable speed

  • kettlebell swings: 3 sets-20 reps

2. run .25 miles (.5=half way there!)

  • push-ups w/ rows
3. run .25 miles (.75=so close!)
  • walking lunges w/ shoulder press
4. run .25 (1 mile!)
  • abs
