Holy Fiver

6 Jun

 

Did a light warm up with the jump rope then did a core circuit using the TRX. Put 15 minutes on the clock and did as many rounds as I could of:

The Holy Fiver by Pat Flynn

5 x Double Kettlebell Swings
5 x Double Kettlebell Snatches
5 x Double Kettlebell Front Squats
5 x Double Kettlebell Clean and Presses

Equals 1 round. Don’t put the bells down until you complete all 4 movements. Take as little of rest as need in between rounds. I was able to do 5 rounds using a pair of 12kg and I felt next time I’ll bump it up to 16s. Finished the day and did an easy 5K run in the park.

 

On An Off Day

I had a long day sitting behind a desk and was going to take a rest day. It was getting late into the night when I pulled up my shirt in front of the mirror in the bathroom and…BAM!!! Instant motivation.

I’ve been pondering how I would like to get rid of the stubborn lower belly fat. I know you can’t spot reduce or get rid of it by doing a million crunches daily. Diet, cardio and lifting heavy things is the only way. I looked back at all the hard work that got me where I’m at physically today and how much more work I need to put in. It seems for spending an hour a day, 6 days a week, you only enjoy you body for a couple hours a week on a night out on the town. Is it worth it? Yes!

Decided to have some fun today and threw in X Trainer from Asylum 2. I finished a sweaty mess and made sitting in front a computer all day not a day lost in vain.
