As I just mentioned, I’m going to put the Plank Challenge on the shelf for the time being, but because I’m not a quitter, I wanted to replace it with another workout challenge.
For the remaining days of September, I’ve decided to complete a Kettlebell Challenge. The reason I’m choosing Kettlebells is because they’re such an efficient workout and burn so many calories. If you need more explanation, check out this article I just read on Fitsugar.
My Kettlebell Challenge is going to include this 5-move circuit: (all photos taken from fitsugar)
The circuit includes completing 10 reps of each move for a total of 3 sets.
I like that this circuit hits lots of different body parts, and it seems difficult enough to keep me challenged but accessible enough that I can complete it.
To make sure I’m really pushing myself, I’m going to increase the number of reps each week, add 5 more, which would look like this:
September 12-14: 10 reps of each move, 3 sets of the entire circuit
September 15-21: 15 reps of each move, 3 sets of the entire circuit
September 22-28: 20 reps of each move, 3 sets of the entire circuit
September 29-30: 25 reps of each move, 3 sets of the entire circuit
Let’s tweet under the hashtag #SweetSeptemberKettlebellChallenge (since I found these moves on Fitsugar).
