Hey guys! I have a new workout for you today so get excited (I think I say that every time). I’m hoping to be more consistent about creating new workouts each week, probably posting each Friday. What do you guys think? Is that something you’d be interested in? I love to find new workouts so I figured others might too!
This one involves two of my favorite pieces of exercise equipment: the TRX band and kettlebells. You can usually find both of these at most gyms. Sometimes I notice the TRX bands are for classes only so if that’s the case, you can order one online too (hello Amazon). We actually don’t have the TRX, we have a different less expensive brand. The TRX runs for like, $150 bucks which seems ridiculous, so we bought the WOSS trainer which is about $40. We really enjoy it so far! Alright, let’s get to it.
This workout consists of 3 sets of 3 exercises. You’re going to perform 15 reps of each exercise in the set, going through the whole set 3 times. Then move onto the next set.
Here’s a breakdown of a few of the exercises:
Curtsy Lunge with TRX
It’s hard to see, but my knee is off the ground.
The curtsy lunge is different than a typical lunge because you’re lunging a leg backwards and to the side of your front leg. When using the TRX, try to keep that back leg off the ground the entire time.
TRX Pistol Squat
Can you believe people do this without holding on to anything? #goals.
Anyway, start standing up holding on to the TRX band. From there, you’re basically going to squat all the way down while simultaneously lifting one leg off the ground. These are basically single leg squats.
TRX Mountain Climbers
Take your mountain climbers to the next level!! You could actually just stick your feet into the TRX and hang out and plank…that itself is a workout.
Both feet are in the TRX band. From there, bring one knee in towards your chest then quickly switch legs.
TRX Hamstring Curls
I actually tried these the first time at an Orange Theory class and they were so horrible. In a good way 🙂
You’re going to stick your feet into the band with legs straight. Lift your hips off the ground and curl your legs towards your chest, then straighten again. Try to keep your hips off the ground the entire time.
Here are a couple links to the kettlebell exercises:
I hope you guys give it a try!
I’d love to know if you guys want to see more workouts…what do you think? Thanks!!
