Kettlebell Workout #1

Thursday, February 17, 2011

Holy cow. This was the hardest workout I have ever done in my life! I could barely do more than 5 reps of each exercise without feeling like I was going to pass out. I mean, this was seriously hard. I did realize that I truly need to work on my arm strength considering I couldnt life the thing over my head with my left arm. I guess I need to start at least using my left hand to hold the leash for my crazy right arm is SO much stronger.
Hopefully soon I will be able to do the workout in its entirety. the one bummer is that while my
HRM finally worked inside, it didnt actually track my calories.

Ps- if you have a dog and do this work out at home, watch out for the dog! He got pelted in the face with a 15lb kettlebell!!!!

    Carla that's right- for some reason I was thinking we had the same.

    I was first thinking 15 was too much, but 10 may have been too easy after a few tries.

    I don't remember that we do. I have a Garmin FR60-pink of course, LOL. Mine came with the foot pod and the wireless transmitter to auto sync to the computer. I know mine will only track indoors (unless it's a really open area with tons of windows) with the foot pod on.

    Hope your muscles are better tomorrow! I want to go buy a bigger one now. I should have never thought 5 pounds would have been enough!

    And I was already sore from the day before! I guess I will double up the potassium tonight!
    I think we have the same HRM Carla- but I dont have the footpod.

    Ahh, kettle bells... Yeah, they can be brutal. I've been working with them for about 6 months now and still get walloped by them regularly.

    Aw, poor doggy!!

    I have heard that the Kettlebell workouts are brutal. I'm pretty sure I remember Louisa saying she couldn't hardly move the next day.

    My HRM works inside fine, but my particular watch only tracks calories and such inside if I have the foot pod on. I just know mine works just fine at the gym and in my house for tracking everything, including pace on the treadmill.

    Great job trying your first work out. I am sure they will get easier!
