After four months of 30-day fitness programs, I’m currently designing my own, since other available programs look either too easy, too hard, too boring or not what I’m looking for.
Turns out it’s not so complicated once you understand what each individual exercise does, and how to balance them for effective variations and rest periods.
That’s the theory at least. We’ll see if I can handle kettlebell juggling in a few months.
I feel a little soreness about everywhere in my body from yesterday's kettlebell workout, but it's nothing compared to what I imagined.
Today's workout was arms-focused, with 10 kg dumbbells and movements repeated to failure, as slowly as possible. It was a bit demanding and I suspect tomorrow might be painful.
Today’s workout, which was focused on arms and back, involved moving 10 kg dumbbells repeatedly at various positions with a decreasing number of repetitions, and wasn’t especially interesting.
The hardest part was waiting 2 minutes doing nothing between sets. So guess it’s perfect, because it’s less demanding than the previous days, meaning other muscle groups can rest and repair.
