workout wednesday :: helen

Hello my peoples. 

Guess what! The materials to study for my Personal Training Certification should be coming in the mail today!!!!! Well technically I think they are coming via Fed-Ex, but those are small details. Also, remind me to tell you a story someday about JanJan the Fed-Ex man. It was weird.... Anyways, I am getting off track. In honor of my CPT stuff coming, I wanted to share the workout I did on Monday with you. It is a Crossfit workout, but don't worry you don't need to be a member of Crossfit Box to do it.  I do a lot of their workouts, but don't actually belong to a gym. I am cheating the system I guess you could say? Sort of?! Anyway, this Helen chick is a betch, but she is a good quick workout if you're up for the challenge. 

You might also want to figure out how far 400 meters is before you start your workout and not do what I did and run close to half a mile for each round.  But to each their own! 

Here is how to do a kettlebell swing.

Here is a video on how to build up to a pull-up. 

Here is a video on how to use the assisted pull-up machine. When I first was learning how to do pull-ups I would jump into each of my pull-ups, so there are a lot of variations on how to build up your strength.

i keep a chair close by during pull-ups so i use that for assistance.

Helen sounds like a jerk. And why 21?

Tami said...

Anyone, man or woman, who can do 12 pullups is a badass in my book.

i love kettle balls or medicinal balls, makes me feel like i really worked my muscles

Candace said...

This looks amazing and awesome and horrible all at once. It hurts so good! Any recommendations if you don't have access to kettlebells?

Oh you fitness guru, you! :)

I might hate myself later for saying this, but I need kettle balls in my life.

i felt a little dirty saying that just now ;)
