“Is is actually possible for me to get my old body back?”
… asked a client I had started working with recently.
YES was my answer! … but it really hit me, and I realized that so many of us ask ourselves questions like this when we’re starting something new.
We want to know, is this actually going to work, and most importantly, is it going to work for ME!?!
Well I am going to be writing on this topic for the next few days as we gear up for our 28 Day Kettlebell Body Revival Challenge next week.
(we’ll be accepting applications starting tomorrow, stay tuned)
And the first thing I am going to talk about that is CRITICAL when it comes to getting your old body back, is consistency.
Working out consistently. Eating clean consistently. Drinking enough water consistently. Getting enough sleep consistently.
Put all these things together, and in a relatively short period of time, you can see some big-time results.
But consistency is not always easy. That’s why most of us are still working towards out ultimate fitness goals.
One thing that can really help you with consistency when it comes to the workout piece is having workouts you can do any time, any place, with minimal equipment, and in a realatively short period of time. This way, you eliminate many of the obstacles that could pop up, and can just get your workouts DONE, day in, day out, no matter what else you have going on in your life.
Here is a sample from the upcoming Challenge, check it out:
20 min KB “Body Revival” workout
1 – Set your timer for 30 second intervals. You’ll do 10 KB swings at the start of every interval. Rest once you’re one with your 10 reps until the
next interval starts. Repeat for a total of 10 rounds (100 swings total).
2 – Do three rounds of the following circuit as fast as possible:
Turkish get up, 1 ea side
3-5 pull ups (any grip) OR 12 inverted rows
jump rope OR jumping jacks, 30 seconds – work in / up to double unders!
3 – To FINISH … burpees – set your timer for 30 second intervals. Do 4 burpees the first 30 seconds. Do 5 burpees the second. Continue in this
fashion until you can no longer do so.
You CAN get your old body back.
But a HUGE part of making it happen is consistency.
Workouts like the one I shared with you today – that are time-efficient, use minimal equipment, and are FUN – make consistency a snap.
And stay tuned – registration opens for the August 2018 KB Body Revival Challenge tomorrow!
