  • Pre Xmas minimalist fitness challenge for me.
    100 kettlebell swings with 24kg, 100 burpees a day.

  • That sounds fun!
    I’m doing a lot of 100rep workouts at the moment as well. Lots of ways to progress and always nice to have a fixed goal

  • Simple, regular habit-forming workouts seem to work best with me.
    Add an hour or so of zone 2ish turbo a day, intermittent fasting, and get shredded.

  • If anyone is interested, IronMaster gym equipment is pre-order is happening this weekend. This is simply a headsup as they arent on sale for long or often.

    They will have dumbbells, kettlebells, benches, and a small selection of bench attachments available for January.

    Personally, i think they're great for those interested in long term investment in good home gym equipment and have limited space (like most of us).

    They're expensive, but as a heavy weights guy, i think they're worth it.

    They dumbbells / kettlebells are available now if anyone is interested

  • Doesn't take me to the insta app... What is it?

  • 3 days in, everything aches unsurprisingly...
    14 minutes for (10 swings + 10 burpees) x 10

    Aiming to do it all in under 10 minutes, which is 10 swings in 15s, 10 burpees in 30 seconds and 15s rest.

  • guys, have you ever had small chest pain from doing pushups, i dont mean muscular pain, is more thorax pain... did you manage to get rid of it to continue your training? (i am in no way putting out massive reps... maybe 4 sets of 12) thx for your help anyway

  • possible strain.... But i am in no way a doctor.

    could be intercostals. Muscle strain you need to rest it else you will keep tearing.

  • Thx I will keep it rested and just do other exercises!!

    I hurt my shoulder, sleeping... try not sleeping for a few days... Or if you do, try not sleeping on your shoulder for a few days. Or letting your arm hang weirdly for a few days. You have to concentrate, while sleeping.

  • I'm with you man. I've fucked both of my shoulders by side sleeping and I cannot stop myself sleeping on my side. Its a nightmare.

  • I hate sleeping on my side as i snore then, so i dont want to wake the missus, but fuck me the last few weeks have been tough. Im just greatful it happened while were in lockdown and heavy weights gym isnt waste.

  • Now that I mostly work from home I find I get plenty of opportunities to work on my shoulders.

  • Is this an ok kettlebell routine? I’ve been doing these 8 exercises three times 40 seconds on / 20 seconds rest. Used to go to the gym and do some weights but have stopped since covid.

    Push up
    Squats
    Swings
    Right press
    Left press
    Right lunge
    Left lunge
    Pull up

    Any advice appreciated!

  • Any rest between each set of 8?
    I’d switch the order of squats and pushups, to give a slightly bigger rest for upper body vs lower.

    40 seconds of pull ups is no joke, and probably the hardest of the whole routine! How many are you getting done?

  • Just the 20 seconds rest.

    I should have added - pull ups I do six full but that only takes 25 seconds ish - so that adds to the rest. Hoping to get up to 40 seconds of full ones soon!

  • What's your goal?

  • Get a bit stronger and look a bit better with my shirt off. Ideally when covid is done I’d like to go back to the actual gym.

  • I think you’ve got a good mix of exercises to hit the whole body while mixing in cardio/fat burn.

    Are you planning 3/4 times a week?

    The looking better with shirt off bit will be at least 70% diet, which is tricky with Xmas on the way, but it should definitely make you fitter and stronger.

  • Get a bit stronger

    I'd give myself longer breaks. 20 secs is brutal.

    If you do you might even find more energy for another set.

  • 20s is brutal, but gets your heart going!

    I’m working on reducing my rest durations down to train my body to faster muscle and cardio recovery.

    Currently down to 30 seconds between sets of 10 kettlebell swings and 10 ‘crossfit’ burpees. Aiming to shrink it down to about 10-15s.

  • Nice, might play around with 30/30 maybe instead of 40/20.

    I'm not sure whether I'd be better counting reps rather than doing time but this is quite simple and allows me to just get in the zone.

    Also thinking of putting some bicep curls with a lighter kettlebell.

  • hahahahaha! :) actually i have also this shoulder problem....from always sleeping on the left fukin siiiide.... i did not even know it was possible to get injured while sleeeeping....i understand your pain compleeeeetly! (i also have a kid so i dont need to try not sleeping...its almost the rule of the house now that my kid is in charge....)

  • Since most of your listed exercises are compounds I’d suggest a one arm row instead, but it obviously depends on what weight you have available.

    I’m also not sure if you just blast through them like a giant set and then start over - in that case I would rest two minutes between sets.

    I’d personally prefer to do them as supersets like this. Then timing and rest is up to you.

    Push up
    Squats
    One arm row

    Swings
    Right press
    Left press

    Right lunge
    Left lunge
    Pull up
