LBKC 2012 New Year's Eve Kettlebell Workout

Last workout of the year 2012, so it gotta be bad and I planned to be a bad ass and pushed myself to my limit!

Good thing I got permission to work from home so I could sneak out in the morning to the class and nobody would notice anyway..haha. Fair enough, when I came back, nobody called me asking where I was. Besides most people started off late. Very few of them are super early birds like me!

Ok on to the workout!

#1 KB Jerk practice
10 reps each hand (12lbs KB)

#2 15 min AMRAP:
  • 1 rep each side Turkish Get Up + Windmill Combo (12lbs KB)
  • 10 rep each side double KB cleans (2x12lbs KB)
  • 8 reps each side Romanian Deadlift with 2 KB (2x25lbs KB)
  • 8 reps Pull ups (assisted with thick band - 75% off bodyweight)
Completed 4 rounds + 1 set Turkish Get Up + Windmill combo

#3 Abs
10 sets of:
Jack Knives + Russian twists combo (with 12lbs KB)

#4 Sled Push!
I did 4 laps of 275lbs sled push!! (1 minute rest after 1 lap)

1 lap = 20 yards.

275lbs! That's 2 3/4 of my bodyweight! If I had more time, I didn't mind to do at least 300lbs. Maybe it's not a good idea, I might break my legs...haha!

LBKC 2012 Christmas Eve KB Workout plus HIIT Rowing

Today's workout was a beast! My upper back is already toast from yesterday and Friday's TRX rows so it was quite challenging for me, especially the pull ups, even though it was assisted with a thick band that supposed took off 75% of my bodyweight!

Workout:
2 Rounds:
  • 20 One Arm Jerks (each side) - 15lbs KB
  • 40 Sumo Deadlift 53lbs KB
  • 40 Russian Wiper 15lbs KB
  • 20 One Arm Thruster (each side) 15lbs KB
  • 40 2 Arm KB Swing 25lbs KB
  • 20 Pull Ups (thick band assisted)
  • 20 Box Jumps (20" box)

Note:
  1. For jerks I did Push Press since I haven't learned it yet
  2. Russian Wiper: Lie down, hold KB over head and to leg lifts
  3. One Arm Thruster: Basically squat and press up
  4. Box Jumps: I did step ups

Then after finished with 2 rounds circuit:
80 yards overhead walking lunges (10lbs plate)

Result: 34:13

The best record was 24:02.

Then I did HIIT Rowing (1 minute rest / 30 sec MAX effort for 8 Rounds). I think I almost ran out of my gas. My rowing wasn't as great as yesterday. It could be because of the longer and tougher workout prior.


And I have nice gifts on my palm hands: calluses!

LBKC Sunday Kettlebell Workout

My trainer was late today because he got a ticket. I almost thought if for some reason he couldn't show up, I was so ready to make up my own workout especially I had full access to all of these weights!

Anyway glad everything is ok.

Workout:


Part #1: 3 Rounds circuit
  • 1 minute Turkish Get Up (30 sec each side) - used 12lbs KB
  • 30 sec Goblet Squats (used 30lbs KB)
  • 1 minute One Arm Clean and Press (30 sec each side) - used 15lbs KB
  • 1 minute One Arm Rows (30 sec each side) - used 18lbs KB
  • 30 sec Mountain Climbers (I sprinted thru this!)
Rest 1 minute and repeat the entire thing for 2 more rounds!

Reps I managed (as much I could remember):
TGU about 2-3 each side
Squats about 10-12
Clean & Press about 8-10 each arm
Mountain Climbers - didn't count!

The key here is not putting down the KB when switching sides. I wish I could go to 15lbs for the TGU but for the time being, I'll stick to 12lbs until I build my shoulder strength, especially my left arm.

Part #2: 5 minute snatch practice (used 12lbs & 15lbs KB)

Part #3:
30 sec off / 30 sec active 3 Rounds
  • Burpee (no push up) KB High Pulls (used 30lbs KB)
  • Close grip push up (hands on KB)

Reps I managed (as much I could remember):
Burpee High Pulls about 8-10
Close grip push up about 5-6

Afterward I went to the gym area and did HIIT Rowing
(1 minute rest / 30 sec all out for 8 Rounds)

Result: 1.6k row - not bad!

Hmm can I say that I actually kinda like rowing? Maybe it's too early to say that since I haven't tried to row 1k all at once!

Overall today's workout was AWESOME and I'm glad I finally didn't chicken out picking up my weights! I could still feel some soreness on my upper back from Friday's TRX rows and I think today it will be a bit more sore from those close grip push ups!

ZWOW #47: 12 minute Fat Burn Workout

My second HIIT workout for today. Gotta deplete these glycogen storage! As unfair as it sounds, we women tend to hold on to our glycogen storage. Ugh! Since I want to optimize my Carb Nite, I need to deplete it as much as possible. Let's see if I'm going to puke or faint at the end of this workout.

Original workout: Zuzana Light

12 minute AMRAP:
10 weighted forward/backward jump squats (with 2x8lbs DB)
5 ab splitters & supergirl push up combos

Result: 4 Rounds + 10 forward/backward jump squats

Myomytv Step it Up Conditioning Workout

Original workout: Myomytv.com

Set interval timer for 20 sec rest/40 sec on for 6 Rounds in each Section - perform 2 Rounds on each sections! I did both sections before repeating the entire thing. I set 2 minute break in between sections.

Section #1
SB Front Squat to Reverse Lunge (right) 6.5 / 9
SB Front Squat to Reverse Lunge (left) 7 / 8
Inverted Rows* 9 /9
DB Push Press (left) 9 / 8
DB Push Press (right) 13 /13
Two-Handed DB Swing 27 /27

*** 2 minute break ***

Section #2
SB Weighted Side Step-Up (right) 12 /12
SB Weighted Side Step-Up (left) 11 / 13
Bench Jump Overs** 23 / 28
Single Arm DB Swing (left) 25 / 25
Single Arm DB Swing (right) 25 / 25
Two-Jump Burpees (burpee with 2 jump squats) 7 / 6

SB = 25lbs
DB = 12-15lbs

Bonus:
I did 3x15 sandbag hip thrust with my shoulders on a balance ball.

Cardio HIIT (1 minute off / 30 sec MAX effort 8 Rounds)
Push Up Burpees, jump squats, CrossFit burpees

In the end I just did CrossFit burpees as I could go all out more. Jump squats are a bit too hard for my knees, push up burpees didn't elevate my heart rate as much.

I don't own a KB yet so I did it with DB
* I did reverse push up with my dip station. I tried with straight legs but I figured I couldn't pull myself up as much to get more squeeze on my upper back, so I did bent legs but tried to shift most of my weight to my back and used less assistance from my feet
**I did side to side jump with my hands on the chair.

Mountain Runners
Jump Tucks

KB Sunday Class Workout

I was so pumped up for today's KB class that my eyes popped open around 6am and I couldn't go back to sleep! Geez, the class wasn't even started until 9am!

Anyway here's today's workout:
5 min AMRAP super sets (with 1 minute rest in between sets)
Set #1
Turkish Get Up (switching side) - used 10lbs KB

Set #2
1 Arm Push Press x 8 each side (used 12lbs KB)
Goblet Squat (used 15lbs then 25 lbs)
Got about 3 rounds

Set #3
Side to side push up (one hand on top of KB) x8
Single Leg Deadlift x 8 each side (used 15lbs KB)

Set #4
1 Arm Row x8 each side (used 12lbs KB then 15lbs KB)
Windmill x 5 each side (used 10lbs KB)

Set #5
Snatches x 8 (each side) - used 10lbs KB - mainly focus on the technique

Then Tabata ropes.

Great workout and I think I could graduate a bit from 10lbs KB to 12lbs KB nest time I do some upper body wo such as TGU, push press. For windmill and snatches, might take sometime until I get the technique right!

Potluck Workout

Today was my 2nd day for Kettlebell workout. As lucky as I was, today was actually a group workout for both Kettlebellers and CrossFitters. There was no charge and after the workout, they were having a paleo friendly potluck. I didn't bring anything though, but I got to enjoy some of the dishes. YUM

So we did a little warm up prior then jumped into this:

8 minute AMRAP:
12 KB swings (I used 25lbs KB)
8 box jump (I did step ups)
4 burpees (competition style)

I completed 5 rounds & 6 step ups. I was so pooped with the swing after 4th round. Trying to keep my core tight and did proper swings or else I will mess up my back. For the burpees, I tried to jump as high as possible and clapped my hands above my head. To be honest, I felt quite excited to do the burpees despite it killed me a lot towards the 4th round.

4 minute rest

Then we were divided into 2 teams to do:
250 m rowing
70lbs 40 yards farmers walk (35lbs KB on each hand) - for women. I didn't how much weight for the men
40 yard sled push (125lbs for women / 215lbs. for men)

It was a fun workout. I was a bit sore from yesterday and I think I will be even more sore tonight and tomorrow. But it's not bad at all! LOVE IT!

First Kettlebell Workout

My Carb Nite last night was FABULOUS! Today I had a chance to try out my first kettlebell class!

I drove up to Long Beach Kettlebell Club and met the trainer, Eric for one to one kettlebell class. It wasn't a private session, but it just happened I was the only one who could make it to 9am class.

I learned how to pick up the kettlebell, did deadlift, snatch, clean, swing and turkish get up.

As we had an extra time towards the end, he helped me put together an actual workout.

2 Rounds:
20 KB Swing (25lbs KB)
10 KB clean, snatch & Press (each arm) - 18lbs KB
10 KB press (each arm) -18lbs KB
10 KB goblet squat (25lbs KB)
1 turkish get up (each side) - 10lbs KB

Then:
5 band assisted chin up
40 yard sled push (100lbs)

Result? I was pooped! The sled push killed my legs completely! Am I hooked? YES! Definitely will come again! Too bad it's a bit far and I only have time during weekends to come. Since he doesn't have any scheduled class on Saturdays this month, I think I'll just stuck with Sundays for now.

ZWOW #43: Switch It Up!

It's been ages since I did last ZWOW. Not that it wasn't interesting, but I just prefer a bit more refined workout like LovingFit. But one of these days where I know I won't have much time for working out or I don't feel like complicated workout, ZWOW comes in handy.

Original workout: Zuzana Light

15 side step ups (each leg)
10 one leg triceps dips (each leg)
15 one leg elevated lunges (each leg)
10 sets of (10 chair climber + 1 diagonal push up + jump forward & back)

Instead of doing 12 minute AMPRAP, I was aiming for at least 2 rounds or 3 if I felt super jacked up.

But in the end I only completed 2 Rounds which took me 17:48



Then I did LovingFit Bums & Steel Thighs Challenge (Week 1- Day 3)

The journey from a skinny fat to a skinny fit continues

It's been a while for not putting together my progress picture and I think it's a good time to see how far I've come through.


And it doesn't end here. My goal to be a skinny fit still continues.

LovingFit: Magnetic Sweat

After 5 days of active rest, it's time to jump back on and apparently I picked a very difficult workout to start off.

Original workout: LovingFit

Part #1: 11 sec/ 11 sec for 10 rounds (no break)
Seated Pull Up hold or Leg raise hold on dip station
Triceps hold with alternating leg lifts

I could only hold the first 2-3 rounds with leg raise. The rest I had to do knee raise hold.

Part #2:
50 elevated 1 leg clock push up
20 double bike (1 up and 2 down as 1 rep)
3 rounds 10 reps or 2 rounds 15 reps per side regenerate rows
30 Sandbag pick up and 2 press up
30 2 way dive bomber
3 rounds 10 reps or 2 rounds 15 reps per side dumbbell shoulder lateral raise
80 crab
3 rounds 10 reps or 2 rounds 15 reps bent over side raises

Sandbag: 35 lbs
dumbbell: 16lbs (8lbs each)

Modifications:
1. I did regular one leg push up using dumbbells as my push up bar
2. I did regular dive bomber and had to go down to knees for the last 10 reps

Time 39:07

Warm Up:
CBBC# 1 & CBBC #2
Planks variations
2 minute freestyle skipping

Note: Since my left ankle already healed, this was my first time doing CBBC#1 & CBBC#2 as RXed. Butt kick jump squat totally fun and hard at the same time and rocket launchers totally killed my quads a lot (those in and outs count as 1 rep btw)

Original workout: LovingFit

Twisted Forward Backward Jump ( our new jump variation ) – 100 reps
Core Slides – 20 Reps ( Try to go through the full 20 reps without a break )
Side Jump Lunge – 10 rounds of 12 reps per leg
Core Slides – 20 Reps
Jump Over & Jump Tuck – 50 Reps

Time 26:23



Finish off: CBBC #3 which took me 9:45

Upper Body WO and LovingFit Sharper Abs Challenge

Can't believe that today was my last day of LovingFit Sharper Abs Challenge, but I decided to keep this challenge as part of my daily warm up, although I might not do the entire 3 rounds. If I'm doing it everyday, 1 round should be enough until I could do more of those.

15 reverse body row (assisted 1 bent leg)
15 Sandbag push press
