Borrowed a kettlebell workout book from Judd. It’s an eight-week program, and I decided to give it a go. Scaled down the first workout, since I’m still getting a handle on th new KB… and I’m glad I did.
Superset x 4 of:
1-arm KB clean and press, 4 per hand
Max pull-ups, changing grip each round (10-8-7-5)
Superset x 3 of:
Walking KB lunges, 10 each hand
Max push-ups (21-14-9)
3 sets of:
Hand-to-hand KB swings x 15
Run for 4 minutes
Damn, this hit hard; the walking lunges especially. I was thinking of doing this as Rx’d next week. I may still give it a go, but… damn.
EDIT: Two notes.
- First, I used a single 35lb kettlebell for all KB exercise.
- Second, I rested 45 seconds between sets of a given exercise, or between supersets, and 90 seconds when switching from one “phase” of the workout to the next. Except between the first group of supersets and the second, because I needed to take my dog out.
