Thanks to the wonderful program design by my husband, every workout that I’m doing right now (excluding flush/recovery days) consists of three main exercises:
- pull ups and/or chin ups
- swings or snatches
I can’t say these are the most exciting workouts I’ve ever done, but they’re working for me. What do I mean by working? Well…I’m making progress. I’m getting stronger. I’m getting leaner. I’m starting to feel more prepared for the RKC.
I’ve gone from not being able to do a chin up or a pull up after having Connor (less than 5 months ago) to completing 3 unassisted chin ups in a row and 2 unassited pull ups in a row. The other day I did 10 unassisted pull ups…greasing the groove throughout my workout. The week before I only did 4 and had to use a small band to assist with the last 6.
I’m doing goblet squats and double kettlebell front squats. At this point I can goblet squat the 24K for reps and can do double front squats with 14K kettlebells for reps. No more long cycle clean and front squats …for now.
I’ve been doing tons of swings with the 28K kettlebell, double swings with 16K kettlebells and single arm swings with the 20K kettlebell. Swings are feeling good these days. (Check out my hair in this picture… lol.)
Here’s an example of one of my current workouts: (I’ve been switching up the order, but getting it all in.)
Single Arm Swings
12×8(R/L) with 20K kettlebell
Double KB Front Squats
4×4 with 14K kettlebells
