R9D15 – Many Happy Russian Returns

I took the opportunity to work out during lunch today in our work “getaway” room. I had my 45lb KB with me and as I have said many times in the past, that’s all you need for a great workout. It went like this (since I didn’t have a pullup bar):

Pumps, halos and squats for warmup

1-2-3 Clean and Press
20 swings
1-2-3-4 Clean and Press
20 swings
1-2-3-4-5 Clean and Press
20 swings
1-2-3-4 Clean and Press
20 swings
1-2-3 Clean and Press
20 swings

5 snatches per side x 3

It was a quick 25 minutes or so.

It’s funny actually, the questions I get the most about my workouts are not about P90X or even now about P90X2 but rather about kettlebell workouts. People seem fascinated by the idea that you can get a full body kick-ass workout from a heavy metal ball with a handle. I guess I was pretty skeptical too at first but after you do your first few swings, you get the message! I know a lot of people use kettlebells for some of their work, maybe a few swings here and there witha sumo deadlift or two thrown in but I don’t know of many people who actually do full kettlebell workouts. If you haven’t tried it and you are looking for something to supplement your P90X/Insanity workouts then why not try the RKC (Russian Kettlebell Challenge) as outlined in the Art Of Strength workbook and work through the Enter The Kettlebell workout video. I can guarantee you will feel a massive difference in your strength, especially your core and back.

Give it a shot, it’s a new year after all!
