Double Kettlebell Complex | Home Fitness Workout

Hi all,

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.  I spent most of it outside in the hot sunshine and with my friend for her Hen Party Weekend. On Saturday we went horse-riding and then had a picnic. That night we went out for a meal and some cocktails.  On Sunday morning we went to a 5 Star Spa and had some relaxing treatments (but I had to leave early coz I got sick 🙁 ). Feeling a bit better today though!

Picnic anyone?

The Hen Party theme was “Red”, so I had to think of something … not sure about this look :/

A great night had by all! 😀

The workout for today was one I did on Friday. It was so tough! So much so, I questioned why I put myself though it and I think I even asked God to come and take me –  haha, the drama! Anyway, here’s the simple (deceivingly so) breakdown.

The Workout

Firstly, I apologize about the word I say at 1:20! I meant to edit that out, and really REALLY hope my mum doesn’t watch this one – oops! 🙁

Do as many rounds of the following 4 exercises as you like. I did 5 … don’t ask me why! And I had DOMS the next day, which rarely happens.

A couple of suggestions would be to set your Gymboss Interval Timer to “Stop-watch” mode and then keep it to a time you are happy with. Or, just go by how you feel. I used 2 x 16kg for this workout. DEATH!

  1. Double KB Front Squat x 10 reps
  2. Double KB Swing x 10 reps (you can keep these single KB swings if you prefer)
  3. Single Arm KB Snatch (right and left) x 5 reps (feel free to do more, but 5 was enough for me)
  4. Burpees x 10 reps (this was actually the nice part of the workout LOL)

All in all, this took me about 20 mins (a little over) to complete. My recovery rate decreases dramatically when in the heat, so I was definitely struggling with this one.

I bet you will all do 5 rounds in a breeze and then be like “what was so hard about that Marianne?!” “you call yourself a fitness person” “Dammit Marianne, why did you get me excited about a challenge – shame on you”  … all with disappointed facial expressions.

*hangs head in shame* 😉

Just kidding, this is as intense as the effort you put in.

Have a great day!
