Today started with my 4km jog into work.
After training my clients for the day I completed a 45 minute barbell workout consisting of 4 exercises. Hang snatch, front squats, Romanian deadlifts, and barbell rows.
Nothing fancy (is it ever?) and felt great afterwards.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Today’s workout was completed in just under 34 minutes.
My legs felt a little heavy from Sunday so deadlifts were done with medium intensity.
Overall, a solid training session to help push me through the January blahs.
Have a great day.
It was a beautiful day for snowboarding at Pakenham today.
Once I got back home I decided to do a quick 4 exercise circuit in my basement while watching the Packers and Seahawks game.
I did 6 rounds of:
Double kettlebell squats x 10
Pushups x 10
Double kettlebell swing x 10
Body rows x 8
The circuit was done in under 25 minutes.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
We are now in the middle of January and hopefully you are staying active and staying on track.
I find at this time of year it is hard time to stay motivated, but I know I have to keep at it so I don’t put on a winter layer.
Today’s workout took 40 minutes and included :
– Single arm kettlebell swings 3 x 20kg-24kg x 15 each arm
– Double kettlebell squats 1 x 8 (24/28kg) 3 x 8 x (28/32kg)
– Weighted pull-ups 4 x 5 x 20 lbs dumbbell
– Single arm kettlebell press 2 x 6 each arm x 28kg, 1 x 6 each arm x 32 kg
– Single leg bench hip thruster (hamstrings) 3 x 10 each leg
– Close grip push-ups 3 x 10
Have a wonderful day.
Has your teen recently begun showing an interest in lifting weights?
The benefits of lifting weights are endless.
– improve sport performance
– improve overall fitness
– reduce body fat
– improve self-esteem
– manage depression
– improve eating habits
– improve sleep
But knowing how to train properly is often an area where teens or anyone new to weight training has difficulty.
In this video I go over a basic training template that goes over some of the basics to follow when someone first begins lifting weights.
Enjoy and let me know if you have questions.
Today’s workout consisting of 7 exercises was completed in just under 38 minutes.
My hamstrings were still tender from Saturday’s kettlebell swing fest but working my legs today definitely helped with my recovery.
Overall I felt very good today.
Today’s workout was a quick 24 minutes that was done after a busy day training clients.
I did what I call the kettlebell challenge (based on the 10000 kettlebell swing challenge by Dan John from T-nation.com).
I completed 4 rounds of 100 kettlebell swings that included pushups over the course of workout.
Have a great weekend.
Here is a super exercise for building your butt and hamstrings.
Only body weight is needed so you can really do this exercise anywhere.
No one I train enjoys this exercise, because it is challenging, but it is one of the best exercises for isolating your glute and hamstring.
Aim to do 2-3 sets of 5-15 repetitions on each leg.
Let me know if you have questions.
Today it was tough to pull myself away from my desk, but I did it. And of course I felt amazing once my workout was done. Exercise truly is a miracle drug.
