Can you Burpee?

Wahoo! I'm getting back into the game.

I did my first session with my new kettlebells and it was great. I can see why they are so efficient since you are working several muscle groups at the same time. My core was engaged during my whole routine and that will be a huge benefit to my running come spring.
I already have a few favorite exercises.

(Variation: do this with a 2 1/2 yr old boy laying on your stomach with his feet in your face. Mine thought it was a ride when I'd raise and lower my hips. Weeeee!)

Something else I'm pretty stoked about is going on over at RunnerManWannabe's place. He's hosting a Burpee contest (not to be confused with burper contest) to see how many you can do in 2 min. Go take a gander at the details if you'd like in. I did a few burpee's today to practice and lets just say I'm gonna need until the deadline (Feb. 13th) to get a good number. It's all just for a good time and to take on a fun challenge. Join us!

I can TOTALLY relate to the 2 1/2 year old on your stomach. It is pretty much standard for me unless she is asleep.

I was thinking about getting kettle balls. This is making it even more tempting!

My Mom just got me a kettlebell and I get it this weekend. I can't wait to use it with Jillian's Shred It with Weights.

I love all these moves! I also like to hold it at the waist and do twists or do them in a crunch style twist.

Kettlebells Rawk!
