t is Labor Day in the United States.
The Department of Labor website says:
“Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.”
If you have the day off, you likely have some extra time to get in a workout. The workout below is what we’re doing at FVT this morning…
20 Minute Labor Day Kettlebell Challenge
Do as many reps as possible of each exercise in 40 seconds. Rest for 20 seconds between moves. No rest between rounds. Do 4 rounds total:
– KB squat-to-press (switch hands each round)
– lying leg raises (beginner / no equipment) or hanging leg raises (advanced / if you have a pull up bar)
– two hand KB swings
– burpees (choose your version)
– 1 arm KB rows (beginner / KBs only) or pull ups (advanced / if you have a pull up bar)
In conclusion, this 20 Minute Labor Day Kettlebell Challenge is a great way to get a quick, full body workout in on a holiday. Give it a try and let us know how you do! Also be sure to keep an eye out for a new version of my Kettlebell / Bodyweight Hybrid Strength Training course – it’s coming out later this week!
