Kentucky Fried Marianne | Metabolic Conditioning Exercise Routine

Hey all,

Right now I am in Paducah, Kentucky with Ms Nia Shanks and the weather is fantastic! The weather on my trip has made me so happy because the last few months back home has been freezing! ๐Ÿ™‚ However, looking at the forecast for Kansas City, (where we’re attending the Fitness Summit), it might get SNOW!! But I am sure it will still be an amazing trip ๐Ÿ™‚

My time in Phoenix was great. Bret Contreras conducted EMG experiments on me while I did various lifts and we got to train together at his friend’s amazing home gym. I will post more about this later … and I have a training video from our last session that Bret kindly put together.

I am so excited about the next few days. I will post more about my trip next week when I get home. For now, I’ll leave you with this very simple, very quick workout.


The Workout


1) Reverse Lunges: 3×8-15 ย (I started with 40lbs and then added one 12kg KB and finished with adding 2x12kg KBs) (my reps: 15, 12, 8 )

2a) Burpees: 3×10

2b) KB Swings: 3×15 (I did double swings with 2x12kg)

The heat made this workout twice as hard! The weighted vest added a new feel to the lunges because of how the weight is distributed… It felt more challenging IMO.

Okay, everyone, that’s all for now.

Be back next week ๐Ÿ™‚
