I broke out the kettlebells and dusted off the Jillian Michaels dvd....
Here's a sampling....
It was a lot of swinging and a butt ton of squats.
I would definitely recommend Jillian's kettlebell workout. It was a great weighted cardio. The circuits are not difficult. The cueing is great - the moves are easy to understand.
She is constantly reminding beginners to not let go of the kettlebell during the swings - I could only imagine if MattyB came home to find the TV totally smashed because I threw the kettlebell at it.
You go through the circuits twice before moving on. Not a lot of abdominal movements, but you are engaging your core through the entire workout.
Around the last circuit I finally started feeling the burn. So after the cool down, I went ahead & did my chest & back circuit, since I was not totally sore. (Plus I like maximizing B's nap time!!!!)
This morning however, totally different story. My hamstrings & quads are killing me!!!
But I love it. It's a pleasant reminder of all the work I did.
Do you agree with the "no pain, no gain" philosophy?
