NerdStrong Gym - Climbing the Ladder
The first half of the class coach Blair went over stretching pre-workout. We did some crazy thing with a partner and rubber band. Got a good stretch for the hips done.
For the workout it's wasn't so much a cardio workout but more of an endurance workout. It was created by coach Seely and consisted of Sit Ups, Kettlebell Swings and Step Ups. And structured as a Ladder workout.
So you do 1 sit up, then 1 kettlebell swing and 1 step up before starting over and this time you did 2 sit ups, 2 kettlebell swings and 2 step ups and then 3 and so on up to 11 and then back down to 1. We had 25 minutes to complete it and though I didn't finish in the allotted time I took an extra few minutes to finish it off.
If's funny when you do these ladder workouts you don't realize how many of these things you are actually doing. When you add up everything we did today it comes out to 121 Sit Ups, 121 Kettlebell Swings and 121 Step Ups.. that's just crazy.
Thanks Blair for another amazing class.
