Kettlebell Kickboxing-Starting a New Phase!

Well, last week finished off the first "phase" of my Kettlebell Kickboxing experience! The first 4 weeks are set up as your introduction and intermediate section of the 60 day program. Once you get to week 6, it gets tough! This is more advanced, and builds the intensity as well as the results! I am so impressed with the results already that even though it means harder workouts, I'm looking forward to the next 4 weeks! 

This past week I did some comparison of weight and measurements, from when I started to the halfway point. (With a "vacation" week thrown in, just using the Travel Anywhere disc). In the past 5 weeks, I have lost 9 pounds! That may not seem like much to some people, but I am thrilled. It took me 3 months to lose 10 pounds a couple years ago with a diet program, so yes, I think the Kettlebell Kickboxing is going great. 

This past week, the last 7 days of the intermediate program, are geared towards getting you ready for the Advanced program. That means some days, you actually complete 2 of the workout dvds. For example, one day you do KB Cardio 40/20 and Abs. This obviously takes a little longer-close to an hour and a half-but is still less time than it would take you to work out at the gym, and get all the different portions done. Cardio, ab work, arms, legs, stretching...all of this and much more is finished in under 1-1/2 hours, and you're ready to get on with your day. 

Now, you may be wondering if the combined workouts don't make it hard to complete the day's tasks. For me, the answer is no. I have found myself with more energy and stamina than ever before. I finished the KB 40/20 last week and thought "Wow, I'm hardly even tired...I could do another round without a problem". That's how much the Kettlebell Kickboxing works! You won't just see results in your body's shape and size, but also in the endurance and energy you have, during and after the workouts!

This week I'm looking forward to some intense workouts and some great results. By kicking it up a notch, I know I will be seeing and feeling the difference!

  1. That's great; congratulations on the weight loss (nine pounds is a LOT)...and the fact that you have more endurance is certainly a plus.
