I was fortunate to take a fairly long international vacation in November and I have recently fought back to the fitness level prior to when I left. As I write this, I am procrastinating in doing my favorite kettlebell session. This session is called "The Magic 50." I don't recall where I first saw this, but I am not claiming to have made this combination of movements up myself.
There's really nothing magic about it, and any trainer who claims there a "magic" or "secret" workout, you should run from fast as you can in the opposite direction. I am only calling it "magic" because that's the name that other people call it. Here is what is involved:
5 clean and press with kettlebell, left arm
5 clean and press with kettlebell, right arm
10 kettlebell swings
This session has a nice combination of strength and endurance. Not too long, not too short, and does not require much equipment. While you might get some strange looks from your housemates, you can do this in your living room. Just don't drop your kettlebell and break your floor!
If you are thinking about shopping for a kettlebell, one place that I like dealing with is called Rogue Fitness. Rogue has excellent customer service, and all their products are made in the USA.
Time to stop procrastinating and go do my session!
