Anvil or Hammer

A different circuit

Posted in Uncategorized by Mike on August 27, 2008

So, I’m digging on the home made kettlebell circuits. I see why the new rules guys got so excited by circuits. They’re quick, their easy (to design) and they make you feel like they work. I can’t say if they do or don’t. For now, they are fitting my needs.
16 Kilo Kettlebell – 30 minutes

Exercise Reps
Hindu Squat 20
2H Swing 20
Mountain Climbers 20
Turkish Getup 3/3
2H Swing 20
Halo 5/5

Repeat for 5 sets
I had a little time left so I did 20 more swings and 20 more squats.
That was hard and my core muscles will hate me tomorrow.

EDIT: This workout rocked me. I knew my obliques would be sore based on how the workout felt. About mid day the following day I was feeling pretty good. Suddenly it felt like someone wrapped a belt around my stomach and slowly but deliberately tightened it. I spent the rest of the day finding comfortable positions to sit in that didn’t make my obliques angry. Now, a day after that, it’s much better.  I don’t think I’m up for another ketlbell workout yet, maybe I’ll try again on Sunday to cripple myself.
