We lucked out today considering the temperatures here in Omaha haven’t hit above 10 degrees in over a week. Today we saw temps in the 20’s. A little cold starting out, but PERFECT once we had about 1/4 mile under our feet.

We saw some sweet homemade shirts, Buddy the Elf and ended our day at the bar for some warm soup and of course a few beers.

‘Fit For Christmas’ Kettlebell Circuit and a Turbo Kick Holiday Special

Today I am bringing a new twist to Transformation Tuesday.  Let’s transform ourselves and get Fit For Christmas! 

I will be posting a variety of workouts for you over the next several weeks.  Let’s first start with this one!  Grab a kettle-bell and get your sweat on!

 

kettlebell circuit

Use an appropriate weight for each exercise.  Kettlebell not needed for Burpees.  That would just be a disaster, ya?  Follow the links for demonstrations.

Fit For Christmas- Kettlebell Circuit!

1. Swings

2. Squats– Hold kettlebel to chest while squatting.  Alter the depth of your squat according to ability

3. Rows– Make sure to do each side for a total of 80 (40 each side).

4. Windmills

5. Clean and Press

6. Deadlifts

7. Bicep Curls

8. Burpees

Do 4 sets of 10 reps.  (make sure on rows, clean and press and curls you do both arms, 10 each set)

 

For my local peeps:

Turbo Kick Class Special!

My Turbo Kick classes are booming at the YMCA.  Super exciting!  I had the highest attendance yet during my morning class.  I joked with them that they were all feeling guilty from over indulging this Thanksgiving weekend. 😉

I am adding on two additional classes starting in January at the institution I work for.  If you live near Council Bluffs, IA and want to try out a Turbo Kick class, you have 6 options!

Holiday Special for the IWCC location is:  14 classes for only $20! 

You must sign up before December 18th to lock in the deal!  IWCC location only.  Register soon!  YMCA classes at the bottom of the flyer are FREE classes with your paid gym membership.  Sweet!
