Crazy things have been happening.
1. Ben started his own personal training business BVTMobility full time!
2. We also just got a house!!
Well, we are in contract and that means we are busy with setting up home inspections, gathering paperwork to meet with the banker, and then figuring out what we need to buy. All that fun stuff. So this week, every evening is going to be filled up with something until late at night. I typically go workout right after work, but with appointments etc. I won’t be able to. Since I rather get up early to go to work instead of getting up early to get a work out in, I have to figure out a good at home workout for the evening. Plus, I love my sleep more than any normal person. Just ask Ben 🙂
Ben has 5 kettlebells and they are all different weights. They look great in our living room. If you haven’t seen this new trend in some decor magazine, you’re reading the wrong ones 😉 . All joking aside, they are really great to have around the home for busy times. Ben will typically take them to clients’ homes but they have a nice little home in our living room. I’ve also have been slacking on my yoga so I wanted to do a strength and yoga workout!
I wanted to test my endurance with a lot of reps and static holds.
If you don’t have a lovely bunch of coconuts…I mean kettlebells hanging around, use some old, books in a bag for squats and even the kettle bell bench press. (I’ve got a lovely bunch of coconuts deeldy dee..get it?! 😉 Oh, Lion King.
Muscular Endurance and Yoga Workout
20-30 minutes long
20 kettle bell squats
1 minute plank
1 minute hold warrior 2 pose (1 minute each side)
40 side to side lunges (20 per side)
20 kettle bell floor press
repeat 3 X
No rest between sets
Grass can be itchy, so if you don’t have a mat, feel free to do a plank on your hands. Elbows and concrete don’t like each other.
I always have trouble keeping my chest up for side lunges. It helps to point my toes on my stepping foot outwards at an angle, squeeze my glutes, and push my butt to my heels.
For the kettle bell floor press, keep your arm out at a 45 degree angle and think about pushing your knuckles to the sky. You’ll push the the kettle bell directly above the shoulder. Make sure to keep your core tight and your shoulders pinned to the ground.
