Welcome to Week 2, Day 5 of the EBOOST Fitness Holiday Challenge!
Each week we are challenging you to focus on your health and fitness for all 7 days each week, including five days of workouts, one full rest day, and one active rest day. This is by no means a strict plan you need to follow. If you have a current workout routine that you are loving feel free to keep at it because you can still participate in our challenge with the chance to win prizes by posting your images on Instagram and tagging @EBOOST, #eboost, and #fitnessholidaychallenge. Each post is an entry into a chance at winning one of our prizes–Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4, EBOOST gift cards and more! To see the full list of prizes, please check out our Fitness Holiday Challenge Overview blog post.
We will also be sharing recipes each week too to keep you inspired in the kitchen! Now grab your POW and let’s get ready to sweat!
Sore, the most satisfying pain.
Week 2 Day 5: Whole Body
Today is all about working the whole body with just a kettlebell. That is right, all of today’s exercises are going to use a kettlebell and that is it. If you don’t have a kettlebell, you can use a dumbbell for most of these exercises too! And if you don’t have either, find something around the house that is a challenging weight that you can easily hold in your hands while still being safe.
Total Body, Kettlebell Workout
This exercise is designed to be done like a Tabata workout. You are going to work for 40 seconds and rest for 20 seconds before moving on to the next exercise. Paying close attention to a clock, starting a timer or downloading a Tabata app for free will be super helpful in achieving the effectiveness of this workout.
Set your timer to 40 seconds of work followed by 20 seconds of rest and let’s get started!
Squat to Single Arm Press (alternate arms after 20 seconds)
Single Arm Shoulder Press (alternate arms after 20 seconds)
Deadlift High Pull
Single Leg Deadlift (alternate legs after 20 seconds)
Kettlebell Weighted Bridge
Weight Sit Ups
This workout can become even more challenging by just simply going through the whole workout multiple times. Or instead of alternating arms or legs halfway through the 40 seconds, dedicate a whole round to just one of the arms or legs.
How do you feel? Worked? If you want more of a challenge or have more time, go through the workout again doing one more set of each exercise.
Way to still be killin’ it! We are almost halfway through the challenge. Now don’t forget to share your pictures on Instagram so we can see how you’ve boosted your fitness goals today!
