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.
"20 squats with a 20 kg kettlebell is no joke", I mutter to myself, as I lay victorious but breathless in a pool of sweat on the bathroom’s floor, savoring every shredded muscle in my ravaged body, before remembering I normally do 10 squats holding a single 10 kg dumbbell, and wondering if maybe, some slight miscalculation happened when I designed this program.
Yesterday I did a workout named "Glutes Sculpt". I can guarantee you that today my glutes feel very sculpted indeed, since whatever shape they took obviously now doesn’t fit any regular surface and every move I make painfully set alien body parts into motion.
