KettleBell Killer Kardio

Okay, so I had to spell cardio with a K just to keep the K thing going on. I think it looks kooler…HAHAHA I’m hilarious. Not.

Let’s move on to the workout.

This workout focuses on 4 different circuits that will take your heart rate to the moon…sort of. I’m over exaggerating, obviously.

When doing this workout, you gotta do all the exercises back-to-back and push all you’ve got. No time to waste. It took me roughly 5 minutes to finish each circuit.

Your heart rate should be up the whole time!

After each circuit, wait for about 1 minute before moving on to the next. As directed on the picture. If you can read it…

I put this picture on Pinterest so you can pin it and save for later if you wanta! And it might be easier to see on there, anyway.

The Kettlebell Cardio Workout

Thank you Pic Monkey for making my workouts look cool Smile

I actually just did this workout again today and added the 4th circuit because I felt like it needed more. So I had to try it again.

Lemme just say…I was sweatin’ like crazyyyy after. It’s a no joke workout.

I challenge you to do it!

Why I Like Kettlebell Swings?

  • Great for the booty, ABS, legs, and shoulders! I’m not kidding. You will feeeeeellll it, baby!
  • Check out Zuzka’s video on KB Swings
  • They get the heart rate up which is a plus.

 

You could take this workout to the gym or do it at home! Or take it outside! Enjoy the Spring air…or at least I hope you’re getting some Spring air. I know we are! It’s like 80 degrees today and sunny ❤

 

Breakfast

All I wanted this morning was chia seeds and yogurt. So that’s what I had!

And I threw in some chopped strawberries and a tablespoon of peanut butter in there (we ran out of almond butter, nooooooo!!!)

Oh so guess what!

I finished my Anatomy Lab Test…there were 150 questions and 28 stations. I finished all the questions except about 10 because I had no idea what they were. They weren’t even on that 15 page study guide… Sad smile

Crossing my fingers that I did okay Fingers crossed I mean I studied for 3 hours last night…

I hope you try the workout and hope you have or had a great Tuesday!

XOXO Audrey

P.S. I will have the chili recipe up tomorrow! And the quick leg workout on Thursday!


Questions

  • Do you like circuit workouts? –I do because it keeps me from being bored. I like to move from exercise to exercise like that.
  • What is one of your favorite breakfast combos?

Friday Faves!

It’s been a confusing and crazy week for me…but I MADE IT!

Hellooooooo, Friday! How you doin’?

Okay, maybe I shouldn’t be talking to something abstract.

Let’s move one.

Last Night’s Workout

I ran! 6 miles total but only logged 5 miles on my watch.

      • 1 mile warm up
      • 6X800m repeats (with jogs in b/w that added up to 1 mile-ish)
      • 1 mile cool down
      • A couple of fast sprints
      • Stretching

 

It was a good run, except the times my foot hurt. I’m starting to log more miles, so my feet hurt from all the work that is being put on my foot. Anddddd I definitely need new shoes. I wouldn’t mind the same ones I have now. Nike Lunar Glide 4 is a great light stability and for distance running. Just sayin’.

Dinner

Just gonna do a quick picture here

Organic grass fed meat, sauteed spinach, a little whole wheat spaghetti and tomato sauce. Perfect. And I might have had another slice of meat. IT WAS SO GOOD Smile

Breakfast

Over night soaked oats with chia seeds and some other stuff (yes, there are some cheerios in there. I needed a crunch and ran out of granola). And some green tea Smile

FRIDAY FAVES!!!!

1) Whole Foods’ 365 Almond Milk (Vanilla, unsweetened)

For some reason, it tastes realllllllly good to me. I like it more than the Almond Breeze brand. Something about the taste, its just better to me.

2) Chia Seeds!!!

I just bought some of these while I was visiting the Dekalb Farmer’s Market over Spring Break. These were so, so cheap. I never get the ones at the stores because its so expensive for so little of an amount! So, this is the first time I’ve tried Chia seeds and I’m definitely a fan!

3) Chickpeas!

These things can pretty much go with ANYTHING! You can even eat them like popcorn. And they’re so good for you! If you haven’t tried Chickpeas (Garbonzo beans), then you totally need to!

4) One serving English Muffins

Lori and Michelle are like super foodie geniuses, I mean check out this english muffin recipe. It is so easy and I personally, just love IT! I still want to experiment with it, but the taste is yummay! (That is their picture, not mine! I can’t get mine to look that perfect!)

5) Streets and Alleys—The game!

Have you ever played this game? EXPLANATION: There is a cop, a burglar and lots of people. The people are standing in rows like in the picture below. Someone will say “streets”, everyone gets in to streets position. Thee burglar must get away from the cop. But when someone yells “alleys”, everyone turns into alleys and the burglar is stuck in that alley. I played it yesterday in theatre, and I got stuck in the alley and screamed realllllly loud because the guy playing the cop was like right beside me and “caught” me. It’s just one of those games that make everything seem terrifying. I don’t know.

6) Raisins

I never (maybe like twice a year) eat raisins…ever. So, when I got some the other day to make that granola, I have discovered my LOVE  for them. They are so good! They remind me of mini fried dates.

7) My dad sending me this picture of a chickadee this morning ❤

8) Putting powdered stevia in popcorn.

It makes it taste like kettle corn…but its not. Tricky, tricky Winking smile

9) Drinking green tea in place of coffee

Green tea in the morning makes me feel tens time better! I hate the idea of having coffee in control. I want to be in control. No headaches, no drowsiness. I feel better.

10) Revlon Brown Colorstay Eyeliner

I usually use black/brown but I’ve been using plain brown and I actually like it way more than the black/brown.
