Today’s workout Wednesday video comes to us from Carlos Dos Remedios a strength and conditioning coach at the College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, CA. He is a highly respected member in the fitness community and always has great information on ways to train and get the body moving. I have had the opportunity to hear him lecture several times and not only is he funny, but he knows his stuff and gets right to the point. He knows what is effective and what works while keeping it basic and to the point. You can read up on him and check out some of his stuff here at: http://www.coachdos.com.
One of the great tools he like to use and I am a big fan of as well is the kettlebells. Kettlebells are one of the staples of tools in the tool box to use because they are very versatile, provide a different load because of the center of mass, have a handle for easy maneuvering and tax you tremendously while using them. A great way to up your metabolic rate, get the heart rate up, build muscle and burn fat all at the same time is to do kettlebell complexes. A kettlebell complex is a series of back to back exercises done in succession with no rest. A beautiful part about a kettlebell complex is that you can work one side of the body and then transition to the other side, giving one side a rest while the other side works and you can continue alternating this pattern until you are finished with the set. I saw this video the other day and tried it out on Monday morning and it did everything I said it would. I was definitely feeling a little out of breath while my muscles were feeling a little fatigued and pumped up. Check it out and see how you feel afterwards. Have kettlebell fantastic day.
