In the beginning of November I decided to “splurge” and buy myself a 40-lb kettlebell which I have lovingly named “Widowmaker”. Over the last few weeks, I’ve slowly been adapting my old workouts to phase out my 20-lb kettlebell and use only my 30- and 40-lb bells. This has been slightly more difficult than expected! Below you’ll find a rundown of my workout week:
Mondays are part of my weekend, so I do The Ladder workout with a few adjustments, which takes about 45 minutes total. Here’s my adjusted workout:
Wednesday I work out with my gym buddy Sharon! We do the AML’s Beginner Kettlebell Workout. Here are the weights I use for each move:
Friday I’m shorter on time, so I do the very first custom kettlebell workout I ever did, The Circuit, with the adjustments shown here:
As of right now I can only get through 2 out of the 3 rounds while only using the 30- and 40-lb bells, but I’ll build back up to 3 rounds by January I think.
I’m currently working on week 6 of a 6-day-a-week workout habit, and I’m feeling great! Nothing better than a sense of accomplishment that comes with achieving goals, right?
What are you up to work your workouts?
