in under an hour!
I had a FANTASTIC Halloween weekend! And honestly, I didn’t eat any candy at all…unless you count dessert at The Melting Pot as “candy.” 😉
This past weekend, Erik and I made our way up to DC for a meeting he had to attend on Thursday evening, and the rest of the weekend we spent with his family. Friday night we celebrated my birthday at Pancho Villa–my favorite Mexican restaurant. The table-side spicy guacamole is my absolute FAVORITE! And even after stuffing ourselves with Mexican, we ended the night with cupcakes.
On Saturday, Erik’s sister, his brother’s fiance, and I spent a “sister’s day” together. We started off getting manicures/pedicures, moved on to wine tasting, ate lunch at The Melting Pot, did some wedding dress and bridesmaid dress shopping (with full bellies–lol), and finished off the day with game night and Chinese food with the whole family.

So after all that food, you know I had to get a good workout in this morning! I had to modify a few things because of the bursitis in my heels (which by the way is already feeling a teensy bit better after four days of rest), but other than being very cautious of my heels, I kicked my own behind this morning. And you’re going to do the same workout.
Here it is! Tuesday’s Strong Figure Conditioning Workout:
- 100 Russian KB Swings
- 90 Lunges
- 80 Mountain Climbers
- 70 Squats (or double kettlebell/dumbbell deadlifts)
- 60 American KB Swings
- 50 Single Leg Deadlifts with the kettlebell or dumbbell
- 40 Hang Clean and Press with the kettlebell
- 30 Hollow Rocks
- 20 Push-ups
- 10 Burpees
- 1 minute plank
Now, if you don’t have kettlebells or dumbbells, you’ll have to get creative. You can sub jumps with or without a jump rope, jumping jacks, sit-ups, bridges, donkey kicks, shoulder taps, tricep dips, anything you can think of to take place of the exercises with weights.
I used a 45# bell for the swings, two 45 lb bells for the deadlifts, and a 35 lb bell for the clean and presses and did this in 34 minutes. My friend Myra attacked this in about 30 minutes.
