Turn Up the HEAT! Sissy Challenge Revisited a Short but TOUGH Workout

Turn Up the HEAT kettlebell workout from GiryaGirl.com

Working from home is great if you have the personality for it. I'm very grateful to have been able to have this level of autonomy for such a long time. If we want to get technical, I've been in charge of my own schedule for the past 17 years (remember, I'm 40 and all) as an entrepreneur, consultant, and fitness instructor. A great trick to have up your sleeve no matter where you work is a quick, intense, nasty little workout that will get a whole lot done in a short period of time. Kettlebells are especially suited to this kind of activity.

PCC Blog Post (with two sample workouts), Yesterday's Cardio Grudge-Match and a Grocery Haul Video

Recent PCC Blog Post

Fantastic to be featured on the PCC blog again yesterday with an experiment that you may remember started here.  I've detailed more of what happened and added two sample deload workouts.  Be sure to also read the comments over there for some very fun Q+A, including a part where a top commenter over there and I have a fairly indepth discussion about signs and signals the body has when we are working on something that is neurologically intense. 

Up for a Challenge? Aww its just a little "Sissy Challenge" :)

My super cool friends from The EDGE Team Performance Center and Kettlebell Club in Dayton, Ohio in have started a facebook event called The Edge Sissy Test Invitational it's a fun conditioning workout test that you can do infrequently to check on your progress.  No idea why it's called "sissy" because it's anything but!

Here's the scoop - I did it backwards - accidentally on purpose* (choose a moderate sized kettlebell** - or one that you train with regularly) and:

Start your timer - I just used the stopwatch function on my handy-dandy Gymboss Timer.
