Kettlebells, I'm a believer!
So I have been doing the Kettlewekx kettlebell routine now for 4 weeks! Today I switched it up and went back to the Bowflex cuz I wasn't sure how much I was benefiting in leg strength department. Make no mistake I could feel it in my legs but just not that intense burn of a super workout or a hard ride.
Well, I keep notes of how much weight for each exercise and mentally you know how it feels when you hit that routine. It's been A LONG time since I have done a Bowflex leg wourkout so I backed down the weight from were I last left off.
To my amazement I blew through them with ease and was back to the weight I left of with after only a few reps. I think the true benefit I have realized from the Kettlebells how easy I blew through the routine I struggled with. For example, Lunges and squats are tough for me! Today with the same weight I was able to blow through the sets easily enough I considered more weight but opted to just keep the good form!
Anyway, I'm VERY happy with the results from the kettlebells!
Feel the Burn? That's the sickness and the cure!
We didn't evolve for more than two million years to sit in front of a TV eating potato chips and contracting lifestyle diseases. Humans were meant to be active, to move vigorously and strenuously - just as you do as an athlete.
