Kettlebells are a great tool to have for your workouts. Especially now with a lot of people not in the gym.
Kettlebells can provide a perfect combo of Strength, Conditioning, & Balance.
They are perfect for a home workout. Since you only really need one.
KBs improve core and stability. Helps with mobility, and range of motion. And helps with muscle imbalances (versus a barbell, where your “stronger” side can take over).
Now that I sold you on getting a kettlebell or using one that you have access too, what exercises should you do??
Seriously, they can work the WHOLE body. You can use it in a bodybuilding style workout or a more cross training style workout. Or both.
Here’s a quick video demo, taking you through a handful of strength exercises. Working through the full body.
A couple tips:
Make sure to not go too light. You want to feel like you’re working out and challenging your body.
But, also, don’t go too heavy. Doing single kettlebell movements with a weight too heavy can lead to a quick injury.
Here’s a couple other Kettlebell Workouts to try out.
When I was doing In Person One on One Training, a favorite style of workout was always the days we did Cardio Kickboxing.
While I taught the basic techniques to hit a decent punch and kick, it was so much more than that.
A major thing was the stress relief it provided. To come in a just punch and kick things (mostly me!) was incredibly beneficial to the mood.
Other benefits included:
High calorie burning
Strength training without weights
Better Endurance, Speed, & Power
And another benefit was, you can do it anywhere. Yes, having a punching bag is a plus, but it’s not 100% necessary to get a great workout in.
Shadow boxing is great!
Getting a partner to hold some pads up is great!
It’s really a great overall workout.
Here’s 3 Cardio Kickboxing Workouts you can do anywhere.
Episode 45 of the 1LIFE1YOU #Podcast I talk to Lesly, Co-Creator of Sorta Kinda Vegan
We cross a bunch of topics, including:
Why the name “Sorta Kinda Vegan”?
What her doctor was recommending that prompted her diet change
Who inspired her to start trying recipes
Getting In Front Of The Camera
& A Whole Lot More!
Check it out. I think it’s a really good look into starting a plant based diet, without being so strict with yourself. And also, not succumbing to the pressure of fitting into a “Diet” box.
