I have woken up today aching in places I can't reach. In a good way. In that oh my goddess I must have worked my body well because I ache like a bastard kind of way. It hurts in a good way,
And it's all the fault of the Russians.
I've been using Russian Kettlebells, with Russian Squats.
A kettlebell is just a weight with a handle on it – nothing less, nothing more. No need to spend a huge amount of money, or mess around with a lot of fancy pants equipment - just pick up one of these balls of iron with its handle and away we go...Usually, the simplest way to accomplish a goal is the best way.
My goal is lovely lady arms and toned legs. As well as a strengthening my core and increasing my cardio fitness. As well as losing weight and toning the inside of my legs. As well as burning fat. Ummmm. High expectations, much?!
So on Monday I did four minute intervals of:
- Russian squats
- Kettlebell swings
- Kettlebell snatches
- Kettlebell presses
And I shall do it all again today......and no doubt be hurting in a really good way again tomorrow......
