Kettlebell and burpee ladder
Just did this for the first time, wow - thought given how much kettling / jogging / bootcamp etc I have done in the last year this would be ok. My heart is pouding out of my chest. I only used doublehand swings, thought I'd save the overhead for later. I'm using a 12kg (26.5lb) kettlebell.
It took me 6 minutes 29 seconds. I tried to do it as intensly as I could.
My previous kettlebell workout was 50 minutes where I was incorporating a warm up followed by 3 x 5 minute swings working 15 x 15 for the first and 20 x 10 for the 2nd 2 sets taking a minutes rest in between. First session was mixed, 2nd overhead and 3rd mixed. I'm nearly snatching the 12kg, could snatch the 8kg well.
I have incorporated a bit of jogging (only 5km twice weekly) but do not enjoy it. If you could suggest other workouts such as this to mix up my kettlebell routine it would be great.
I meant to mention that as my original routine (kb) was taking so long I condensed it to a 400 rep workout incorporating all the presses/push/swings/abs/arms and it takes me about 15 minutes (that would include 2 x 30 second planks at the end and perhaps some renegade rows if my arms haven't died).
I'm a mother of 4 boys (all 8 and under) am no more than 63kg (want to be 57kg) but find fat loss just isn't happening on the scale but my figure is changing (have ditched the scale after turning 40).
Any suggestion for specific kettlebell fat burn apart from what I am doing?
ps my diet is excellent, I do indulge in a bit of wine at the weekend but otherwise eat largely non processed food with a huge emphasis on fresh fish as I live in a coastal fishing village in the southeast of Ireland.
