Wow I cannot believe the date, here we are mid way through the summer. Hopefully you are getting your summer fitness results. One small lifestyle change I have added is riding my bike to and from work 2x / week, 30km each of these days. I feel great but not exhausted from adding in too much. Time is flying by and I started working 5 days a week last week at the NHL prospect camp. It is hard on my body, but temporary. Due to this new undertaking I have also added short YOGA routines of 15-20 minutes to help with tightness from work. I use a simple I-phone app- this works for me. I plan on keeping this up 2x/week as well.
A few of my clients have been training in the park with a simple resistance band, 1 kettlebell and a stop watch. Here is a copy of their busy mom park fat loss workout.
Warmup- dynamic- glut bridges, side planks, balance, lunges, push presses, t spine mobility, upper back
Workout in strength super-set style 2-3 sets, perform each exercise group consecutively, rest and repeat
SS 1 Kettlebell 1 legged deadlift 10x/leg with resistance band lunge with a press 10x/side- 2 sets
SS2 Goblet squat with kettlebell with horizontal pullup using a yoga strap or towel on the park equipment
SS3 Walking kettle bell lunge while passing bell through legs with renegade row
Conditioning- 5 -10 hill sprints or flat run using a 1-3 run to rest ratio
Give this workout a try at your local park, home or backyard- all that’s required is one weight and a towel or strap
Enjoy your summer.
