Sweaty Saturday - slightly more conditioning than the usual workouts

We did this workout in my class last Saturday.  The beauty of this workout is, it's designed to where you can still use relatively heavier weights due to the time interval being only 20 seconds per exercise.  Give this workout a try and let me know what you think.

Set your timer for 20 seconds.
Go through the following exercise and only break 20 seconds when you need to transition to the next exercise for both sequences.
Sequence #1

SWING
FLOOR PRESS (less strong side)
FLOOR PRESS (stronger side)
GOBLET SQUAT
FRONT LUNGE (less strong side)
FRONT LUNGE (stronger side)
H2H SWING

Repeat 3-4 Rounds

Sequence #2

PULL UPS OR ROWS
SNATCH (less strong side)
SNATCH (stronger side)
BACK LUNGE
BACK LUNGE

Repeat 3-4 Rounds

Cool down

Plank Holds
Side Planks

2-3 rounds

Do you agree with Rusty Moore that kettlebells and other circuits only get you, to 80% of your goal? Low intense cardio is needed after to burn the free fatty acids that are released from the circuit, high intense training?

No I do not agree. PLenty of people have amazing success with NO low intensity cardio. I think walking is wonderful though!

Hi Lauren. Great workout! I tried it this morning together with my GF. I like the fact that it has shorter intervals to allow for heavier weights used. Tried the 3 round version and I was dripping sweat all over the floor. Thanks for posting and keep up the good work, you're a big inspiration, especially to my GF.

I'm confused. Do I rest 20 seconds after every single exercise. So 20 on 20 off the entire time? Or only once at the end of each sequence? No rest between exercises unless I'm starting a new sequence?

What Doctor's don't tell you after a C-section

I have now been through 2 C-sections since writing this blog post and thankfully I've recovered beautifully from both with the appropriate progressions. For those who are new and are just finding me.

WELCOME!

First let me say I did NOT want a C-section. I did everything in my power to avoid the first and even the second. I'm a kettlebell fitness strength and conditioning coach who relies on her body to share, teach, educate, and I was under the impression that having to give birth via C-section would and could destroy my body and career. Boy was I wrong! If you're feeing the same way, start by reading this article I wrote many years ago that still applies today!

Many people have asked and here is part of my experience.  I don't claim to be a medical expert but not only have I successfully healed my C-section, my abdominals are no longer numb, and I've successfully helped others who've had multiple C-sections (even some 20 years ago) find their core again.  I d…

Let's Talk About Butts (Butt "on" Workouts)

To lift or not to lift, that is the question.  Despite the popular sayings, "Strong is the new Skinny" or "Strong is the New Sexy," there is still a large portion of the female population that will shy away from lifting solely due to their fear of bulking up or building too much muscle.  I'm not going to tell you that heavy weights won't help build muscle and I'm not going to deny the fact that some women can build muscle easier than others.  


Let's start with the photo below.  This is a nice example of the female backside that shows two different body types.  The woman on the left falls in the category of an ectomorph, which generally means skinny, little muscle, and a very high metabolism.  She could probably eat what she wants and stay skinny.  If she committed to a butt strengthening and enhancing program, filled with exercises such as squats, deadlifts, and kettlebell swings, developing the butt on the right would still be unlikely.  Through h…
