The Great 38, A Birthday Workout Challenge!

The Great 38 Kettlebell and Bodyweight Birthday WorkoutEven though I'd made a "38 birthday workout" for a client a few years ago, and considered just recycling it for myself, I decided NOPE!! I need my own, and something goofily specific to what I like to do. So yes, there are pull ups involved. DEAD HANG pull ups of course...

33 Degrees of Happy Birthday - a Kettlebell and Bodyweight Workout

It's always a lot of fun to make up a little birthday themed workout for members of my kettlebell small group classes. Yesterday was no exception - though odd numbered ages are always an interesting challenge.  The participants in yesterday's advanced class were told to get 2 kettlebells - one on the heavy side (for 2 hand swings, the ladies chose 20kg and 24kg—told you this was an advanced class...), and one on the light side (able to press continually for moderate reps).

Since everyone loves Primal Move, we used it as our warm up, and a few extras to get us going.

Then it was time to get it done!

 

First Circuit:

The "38 Special" Birthday Kettlebell Workout

Birthday Workouts are so fun to make - its one of the really fun things I learned about from local friend and fellow RKC, Alicia Streger.*    Anyway - one of my small group participants turned 38 this week - and in honor of her birthday (and to help her recover from the sugar-riffic cake supplied by well meaning co-workers) I designed this workout for her.   There's also a top secret scaled back version that the beginner's group used, so there's a whole group of people who DON'T even KNOW her who are... well... wishing she had just been celebrating 18 years.   Oh well!!  

Rings of Power by Mike GIllette

Rings of Power by Mike Gillette Cool new book from Mike Gillette about Ring Training for all fitness levels. Being on this shoot with Mike was like working with a real live action hero! (And I got to put a cinderblock on him too!) Mike knows his stuff and shares everything you need to know for his versatile go-anywhere ring training.  Full progressions of every exercise, workout plans, and all the know-how to take the training as far as you wish. Good stuff, and yes, that's me on the left side of the cover  :)
