The program that I will be doing from the comfort of my living room for the next six weeks is the kettlebell one. However, there is also an Onnit 6 Bodyweight series as well. Just in case you aren’t as inclined to push your body through the kettlebell training.
A brief overview of the system
The website classifies the Onnit 6 Kettlebell system as “A full-body, transformative workout you can do in the comfort of your own home in just six weeks.”
On to my training.
Workout: Persist & Endure 2
I’ve really enjoyed the intensity that the second half of this program has. It pushes me to my limit, but still gives the feeling of accomplishment at the end of each and every workout.
With P&E 2, I was able to crush all eight rounds of all the exercises and typically level 3. In fact, I’m pretty sure I was at level three for each and every exercise.
One thing I found, was with the push press to lunge, is that my lunge leg would try to kick behind my other leg a little bit. I had to work to keep it straight out to the back. This did not make me drop to level 2, but it did make me drop my rep count in order to focus on form.
PUSH, PUSH, PUSH.
Workout: Work Fast, Recover Faster 2
Waking up Tuesday morning was tough. I took the day off, as I reffed hockey on Monday evening and didn’t get home until 12:30 a.m.
Wednesday became the same, and I did some Jiu-Jitsu at night but did not push the kettlebells.
So on Thursday morning, I made a point to get my workout in.
I’m not sure how I’m going to get all of my workouts in this week, but we will figure that out as we go.
The Work Fast, Recover Faster 2 workout is one of my favorite in the entire program. Shoulders on fire, chest on fire, body dripping in sweat. It really just gets the body working.
Now on to the next one.
