I need a heavier kettelbell. I think his workout was a lot nastier than mine. My kettelbell is around 25ish. I think he said his was around 70.

The more and more I hear you guys talk about kettelbells the more and more i think i need some. Gotta make them tho,  cant afford the price of iron at this time.

 

[Ingredients: oven formed Sand filled (1 inch?)PVC pipe, basketballs and possibly other type gym balls, quick create, scale, gravel, drill and some 6 inch bolts......hmmmm, hopefully talked myself into it, lol.]

 

I got winded reading about your ten rounds of jump rope. Nasty

Weider Ruthless 20 min Hardcore Total Body Interval Training  20 242

Notes: Jump Rope is supposed to be Mon, Wed., and Friday. However, I think I'm not going to get to workout tomorrow, so I moved a day ahead.

 

Ruthless was a fast/slow circuit. First time doing it and I liked this one better than some of the other Ruthless workouts.

 

Beast Tempo Abs. I can still feel it as I type this.

Jay8: Crazy guys and their heavy kettle bells. There's some pretty brutal workouts you can do with a light bell.

 

Stu: Bells are worth the price. It's a solid investment. One time purchase, they last forever, and you can always resell for almost brand new price if you keep it in good shape. The youtube videos make diy way too easy. Shop around and wait for a good sale.. boxing day is coming.

Fitness Gear Adjustable Kettlebell $49.99

I agree they are expensive, but I got an adjustable one. It's like getting multiple kettelbells, because you can make it what you want. But...I haven't tried to put big plates on it because I kind of think they would get in the way and not be comfortable hitting my arms. It would be really easy to lower the weight of it, though.

Rowed a leisurely 5k (3.1 miles) in 24:24 and burned approx 260 cals.

 

Work was crazy the last two days. I worked about 16 hours yesterday and 13 today. Hardly even got a lunch. I worked ground crew and pulled dishes up about 180 feet up a tower by myself. They actually went up really smooth. It was cold, cold. Cold.

 

Anyway, I think the craziness is over, and I'm really hoping to get back on schedule. The good thing is, I didn't actually get too far off track with my food. That's the hardest part for me on the road.

I lucked out and picked up my kg kettlebells (4,8,12,16,20,24) for 139.95. I would have rather gotten a lbs set but the same bells in pounds were more than twice the price. Plus the place I got them is somewhat local so I avoided shipping charges as well. I would like to, sometime, pick up another set so I can do some 2-bell work.

That is a steal of a deal!! Crazy. I think I paid almost $250 for an 8, 12, 16 and 20. Canadian though, so almost the same price. :lol:

How do you like listening to books instead of music? I'm wondering about trying listening to podcasts or books but doubt I could keep my energy levels up for an early morning workout.

Dirty Dozen =

 

Exercises (do 2 times):

12 Tuck Jumps
12 Pull-ups
12 Thrusters
12 Dead-Lifts
12 Push-ups
12 Burpees
12 Fly Traps (core move; lay on back and jackknife straight arms and legs till they touch)
12 Push Press (he actually just does overhead presses the majority of the time)

I really like it. I go through 1 - 2 books a month, and I have for a couple of years now. At one point, with a lot of driving at work, I could get 3 books a month. Now that my workouts have changed, I'm down to 1 book, maybe 2, depending on length. It works great on bike rides, running and walking. When I do tabatas now, I have some tabata music I got off of Amazon. It doesn't work too well with my rowing or DVDs. My books per month dropped about the same time my "5K a day" stopped. :)  I reviewed so many books that I was in the top 15,000 reviewers on Amazon for a while (I haven't checked in a while).

 

Long drive at work today. I knocked out about 3 hours of Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape. This is a crazy book. If the Stepford Wives created a religion, this would be it.
