I've always been a fan of Bob Harper, I like how he puts his Biggest Loser Contestants through the wringer, but he seems to have a sensitive side as well. I sometimes wonder how it would be to have a session with a celebrity trainer, I actually once entered a contest for a chance to work out with Bob.
When we got home from vacation, this was waiting for me:
Yahoo! Shine recently launched a new feature on their site called the Get It Guide, showcasing the things women are searching for and talking about, and the current Get It Guide topic is at home fitness. Which is where this kettle bell workout comes in.
I enjoy kettle bell workouts, they're different, and fun. Bob's was similar to ones I've done in the past, but his kettle bell is ergonomically shaped, so that when you raise it up, it fits more comfortably against your arm, as opposed to traditional kettle bells:
The contoured purple bell is Bob's.
The 30 minute workout went by quickly, there was a warm up, followed by a demonstration on the correct posture to have while using the kettle bell. I was moving the entire time, doing squats, jumping jacks, and swinging the kettle bell. One segment in particular was challenging. It was a one legged row, I had to put my opposite foot down a couple of times so I wouldn't fall over, but I felt the burn in my hamstrings. Bob included a stretch in between sets, which was good because I needed it!
We ended the session (don't you like how I say "we") with more stretches and then it was over. I felt it in my hamstrings later in the day, and even more the next morning, but I was still able to do my Virtual 10k for Team Gab.
