Functional Training Workout for the Week

If you are training with me on Monday or Tuesday this week, one-on-one or in one of my groups (Mon 10 am & 5:30 pm and Tues 9:15 am), I have planned a Kettlebell & TRX Workout for you.  We will have 10 exercises per modality.  It is your choice whether you want to do 10, 15, or 20 reps per set for a total of 100, 150, or 200 repetitions!   I am including the overall workout for you below so that you can take a look and if you would like to do on your own another time, you have it.

If you aren’t training with me and would like to, you can ask to transfer to my group this week or come in for an add-on for group or personal training.  I would love to have you try this challenge!  

Why are Kettlebells so amazing?  
Kettlebells are used primarily for swinging movements, so they end up combining strength training and cardio in one workout. Since they tone your muscles and burn calories, some think kettlebells give you more bang for your buck. Kettlebell exercises utilize a greater range of motion, so they also increase flexibility and tone your core.

Why is the TRX so amazing?
The TRX uses your own body weight as resistance.  As you get stronger, you increase the angle at which you do the exercises to increase intensity.  The TRX hits all fitness components:  strength, endurance, and flexibility while working your core to the max.
