Getting Fit! (Or at least trying to)
Welcome back amigos!
I have decided that a portion of the "Fitness" section is going to be devoted to me tracking and sharing what I do every single day this year to get more fit. I have gotten a slightly late start to the year, as we were out of town for the New Year. That being said, I am back home and ready to get down to business!
Now one last thing to attend to before I get started. I want to make it clear that I am NOT a fitness professional. I have worked out recreation-ally and on recreational sports teams on and off since high school, but I am not a professional. I am simply a regular guy who wants to get in better shape and share his journey with anyone who wants to also make improvements to their life. Now lets get to it!
I kicked off this morning with the following exercises first thing after waking up:
5 reps of each exercise for a total of 2 sets
1. Kettlebell Clean & Press
2. Kettlebell One Armed Swing (Both Sides)
3. Kettlebell Goblet Squat
4. Kettlebell Deadlift
6. Bicycle Crunches (20 on each side)
7. Kettlebell Weighted Sit Ups
I then did 5 reps of each exercise below for a total of 2 sets:
2. Split Squat Jump
3. One Legged Squats (each side)
4. Dive Bomb Push Ups
For my pull-ups I use the pull-up bar below:
It latches into the doorway and works like a dream! I used the ones that sat on top of the door frame before, but I had that fall off while using it a couple of times. This pull-up bar hasn't failed me yet!
That's it for the AM workout! I used a 30 pound kettlebell for everything. I know that is not much weight, but I haven't been exercising and I want to start nice and easy so I don't injure myself. Also, first thing in the morning I am not properly warmed up and don't want to do anything too strenuous. It took me about 15 minutes to do all of the workout. Next time I will time myself to get accurate results.
Also got in a PM workout today! (This is pretty rare.) I am trying this workout from Men's Fitness: The New Year Total Body Reconstruction Plan.
Basically, I obliterated my chest and back today. I hope I can scratch my own back tomorrow. Let me know in the comments what you think about this work out plan!
