Postcard Kettlebell Workout 3.0

Today for my Synergy Kettlebell Kamp I put together really cool workout that I wanna pass along to you. We've had 2 like this come before and this 1 is even better.

I present to you Postcard Workout 3.0... ENJOY!

Warmup: This is VERY important

Synergy Dynamics (10 min. of mobility drills that take you from the top of your head to the bottom of your toes and prepares your body for the workout to come)

Your Fat Blaster: (3x5) 5 Rounds, 1 minute each, 1 minute break between rounds 1. Pushups (Focus on your butt/hip position so that your back is flat and go down as low to the ground as you can by bending only your arms and NOT your knees. If you have a weak upper body simply lock your knees, spread your feet out wider than shoulder width, press your heels toward the floor, tighten your abs, and then perform the pushup as low as you can.)

2. One Arm Long Cycle (1 min per arm. Clean & Push Press or Jerk if you know it... all with the kettlebell)

3. Double Rack Lunges (Clean your kettlebells to the rack position and hold them either in the rack or on your shoulders as you perform in place alternating lunges. Keep very good upper body posture, step your front leg out as far as you can and ensure that knee stays at a 90 degree angle before dropping your back knee. When performing a proper lunge most of your bodyweight should be postured into your rear leg.)

*BONUS* Core Dominator: 3 Rounds, 22 seconds each, no break between rounds 1. Flutter Kicks (Lie on your back, place your hands in the small of your back, and kick your legs from the hips while keeping your knees locked. Be sure to NOT allow your feet to raise higher than 6inches from the floor when kicking.)

2. Sideline V-Situps (Lie on your side with your legs on top of each other. Place your top hand behind your head. Place your bottom arm and hand angled toward your feet. At the same time raise yourself so that your legs ajoined staying as one unit raise up and your bottom shoulder raises as well so that you move up to the bottom elbow. When properly raised you will be up on your bottom elbow with that same relative shoulder off the floor and both legs, staying connected, will also be raised. You will feel this in your top oblique[love handle]. Repeat the up and down movement of this over and over during the set.)

3. Russian Twists (Sit on the floor with your knees bent. Slightly lean back to place tension on your abs. Hold your kettlebell by the horns and move it from one side of you to the other while lightly touching the kettlebell to the floor on either side of your hip before rotating to the other side. This movement is intended to be fast so do not use a heavy weight. Pay attention to how far you are leaning back so that you have good abdominal tension at all times. *For a touch more challenge lift both of your legs and keep them elevated during the set.)


Light jog or walk if you can for about 20 min. and/or then some leg & hip mobility stretches and postures.

Be safe and have an awesome workout!

Yoga Back Bends

Yoga is something I really love and especially Bikram Yoga due to the long lasting detoxing effects on top of the greater stretch range due to the controlled heated environment. Here are some of my favorite yoga postures to practice for overall spine and joint health. Personally by practicing yoga, without the spiritualness side of it, the art has given my back as well as overall body a much greater balance.  That's what health and fitness is ultimately about: balance.

Remember as I always say: It doesn't matter if you are doing 1%, 100%, or anywhere in between that for the posture as long as you are doing the absolute best of what your body can do for that day. Every day your body will allow you to do different things and as long as you are continually practicing your results will come and improvement is guaranteed.
