St. Patrick’s Day

To say it’s been a crazy few weeks, is clearly an understatement, no need for excuses though.

I’ve got a great workout for you for March, and because it’s been so long, I’ve actually filmed two workouts for you.

Here’s the first one…

As usual, a full body workout. You’ll want to do descending sets with the first two exercises of dumbbell snatches and band squats. If you’re well conditioned try to decrease reps of 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 for the dumbbell snatches, and then 20-18-16-14-12-10-8-6-4-2 for the band squats.

If you’re less conditioned or just starting off descend your reps by two for the dumbbell snatches. Your workout will look like this: 10-8-6-4-2 for the snatches and 20-16-12-8-4 for the band squats.

Here’s the second workout…

This workout is great because it can be completed in under 20 minutes. If you’re short on time, this high intensity kettlebell complex will ceratinly make you feel like you got your time in for the day.

Set a timer for 30 seconds, complete each kettlebell exercise for 30 seconds. At the end of each round of exercises completed rest for 60 seconds. This kettlebell complex consists of kettlebell snatches, kettlebell push presses, kettlebell swings, RDLs, and burpee deadlifts.

Give them both a try and let me know how it goes below.

December’s Workout

Last month I started posting one full body conditioning workout a month for you to try. Each time I will chose a different piece of equipment to use, knowing that not everyone has access to all the pieces of equipment I might, and some of you may have greater access.

This month’s workout uses dumbbells and is a 4 minute full body workout, that should be completed for 3-5 rounds depending on your skill level and ability to endure high intensity workouts.

Each round is 30 seconds of

Dumbbell Thrusters Right
Dumbbell Thrusters Left
Dumbbell High Pulls Right
Dumbbell High Pulls Left
Dumbbell Push Presses Right
Dumbbell Push Presses Left
Dumbbell Renegade Rows Left/Right Alternating Sides

Each round is 4 minutes long, take 1 minute rest between rounds. Try to complete a total of 3-5 rounds. If you are able to do 5 rounds without much exhaustion increase the amount of weight you are using.

Let me know how it goes in the comments section below.
