I hate not feeling a 100%

I didn’t realize how bad my cold was until I parked on the parking lot and Jonathan told us to do two laps around the cul-de-sac before we started lunging and sprinting for the first 10-15 minutes of the workout. When we were done it was really hard to breath and even though I’ve been looking forward to take the workout outside I was happy when we went inside to carry on.

We went to the very back of the gym to the TRX and carried on where we left off from the last time and increased the intensity of the “pike’ by balancing on a bosu ball followed by every other rep crunching the legs underneath the body of a total 20. This carried on to a double crunch to exhaust the abs before getting up to our feet doing 15 sumo squat straight into a pull and then finish the circuit with 25 kettlebell swings.

The second circuit built off on the first one but instead of piking we were biking like no tomorrow then we dropped straight into a plank still off from the bosu ball. This not only working the abs but your shoulder also really getting a good workout. This time around we did a 15 squat to press followed by the 25 kettlebell swings.

The last kettlebell circuit we did started with the medicine ball, doing 15 jackknifes and without dropping the feet, 50 russian twists and 50 bicycle crunches. You might think that the arm is getting a little rest but that was not the case because moving the 20 pound medicine ball after all the other moves is fairly challenging. The last and final movement we did we put the previous two kettlebell circuits together and did a sumo squat to a press. This entire workout was very intense and I was sweating like crazy so doing the last move the kettlebell slipped and I hit my tooth and luckily it didn’t chip!

On my way home I picked up 20 bags of mulch from Lowe’s and by the time I pulled in on my driveway the car absolutely stunk so I had to hurry up getting them out of the car. My intension was not to carry on working out but the 20 bags was not only heavy unloading but I carried them around the yard trying to make it look a little bit more summery.

    • Thank you, it could have turned out to be an expensive workout!
      When I started out working with Jonathan it was called BC by the corporate gym and we were anything between 10-25 people doing it. Now he is in a warehouse and we are a small group just hanging out 🙂 I guess it is something in between cross fit, BC and having a semi personal trainer…I love it!
