Around the World… with a hold… and your ABS!

Posted: April 11, 2011 in Uncategorized

Want a great kettlebell workout today that will really make your abs work hard?

During your entire workout remember this one thing, and say it over and over: “Bring navel to spine.”.

This works really well during a kettlebell workout.  You essentially “suck” your belly in and bring your belly button back towards your spine.  Imagine bringing your “front body” through to your “back body”.   It’s a yoga technique and the visual will tap your abs during all your regular exercises… so check it out, give it a try… and then let me know in 24-48 hours how your abs feel!

One other thing, when you’re doing your Around the World sets, stay low on the first 100 reps or so, and then for the next 100 reps bring the kettlebell around and up each time to an alternate shoulder for the “Around the World with a Hold”.  As you do this, remember to suck navel to spine and I guarantee you’ll feel the difference…

So now drink some BCAA’s, put on a little vintage Rattle and Hum, and knock out some kettlebells till the music stops!

    Thought I’d revisit this post… I found myself adding a “hold” to both the Around the World and the Figure 8’s today, and it really stepped up my game. I’ll post the details in my next post…
