Best Of Synergy 2013 Kettlebell workout theme

best_of_synergy_kettlebell

We started a tradition last year in December 2012 with an awesome theme we called: "Best of Synergy". We take all the workout favorites from the prior 11 months of the year and bring them back to finish the year with a BOOOOM & BLAST!!! This is gonna be awesome!!! Check out the themes we're referencing throughout every class below...

WHAT TO EXPECT When you come to your Synergy Kettlebell class you will hear about the overall theme title being "Best of Synergy 2013" and then you will also hear the referencing theme where the workout can previously be found.

We're not doing a nutritional challenge this month so you're off the hook there, BUT of course continue to practice the Eagles Wings (good nutrition & consistent exercise) by eating clean, drinking no less than half your bodyweight in ounces of water daily, and stay away from the B&P.

30 DAY SUPER PLANK CHALLENGE We are going to be having our annual Plank Challenge again starting Monday as well. It's a simple and fun one to do, without any equipment, that can be done anywhere. You will win in 3 different categories: Longest plank, For every 1 minute you plank you get a raffle entry, and the silliest public plank pictures will be all included this time around as well. I encourage you to come to your classes to be a part of our challenge because winning is nice, but the overall goal is to improve ourselves.

Keep these things in mind: 1) Strong is a Choice. It's obvious you have chosen STRONG today by your attendance.

2) Stamina is a Choice. Make a decision right now to stay disciplined and comfortable with being uncomfortable until your count is completed.

3) Everyday discover where Your Greatest Developments and Strength are within each workout and Scale to New Heights with Your Stamina and Strength.

Unleash Your Inner Superhero

Unleash Your Inner SuperheroOur current Synergy Kettlebell workout theme is: “Unleash Your Inner Superhero”. Deep within us lies a plethora of strength. Sometimes fear blocks it, but our strength is still there.

We have more strength inside us than we ever will outside us. Digging deep past our superficial fears to the substance which keeping us pushing forward no matter what is ahead is the driving motivational force that will make us conquer anything.

Accept that fear is present, but never accept any limits it may put upon us BECAUSE our inner-strength is greater than any obstacle before us!

Let's face fears head on KNOWING one of life’s obstacles or even a workout is a challenge and WHEN we conquer, overcome it, we become stronger not only physically, BUT moreover mentally.

UNLEASH YOUR INNER SUPERHERO!!!

 

Here is one of our first Kettlebell workouts on the theme:

Your Inner-Superman Core Dominator:  15 sec work/ 15 sec active rest for 5 min.

Superman Crunches (demo at 3:27, pay very close attention to knee positioning being no closer or higher than the waist, keep arms straight with elbows locked up toward the ceiling the whole time, do not bend the arms at all, focus on raising only shoulder blades off the floor, and lastly do not rock to perform the movement as this creates momentum, keep stable with control while moving up and down)

Superman Pushups  (mod to performing a Double Arm Superman Pulse Up & then a pushup immediately after each pulse up)

Superman Burpees*

*SUPERMAN BURPEE INSTRUCTION: Perform a burpee and lower chest & legs down completely to the floor using the pushup, extend arms/hands straight in front of you, legs are flat on the ground & together, then simultaneously raise both arms & legs up off the floor, then back down. After that immediately get back into the pushup position and explode up from the floor to finish as any other burpee with a jump in the air. Repeat as fast as possible.

 

Rest 2-3 min.
