I don’t know where this is from, who wrote it, or who thought of it first.   But they are a genius.

And I think I might love them… just a little.

Keep it classy, guys.
Flair and class.  Flair and class.

Back to Basics: Single Kettlebell Workout with Push-ups

Posted in health by Fated Blue on February 23, 2014

I tried a little something this morning. It went like this:

Tool: 1 x 32kg kettlebell

Workouts: Swings, Goblet squats, Push-ups

Rep per exercise: 5, 10, 15, 20, 15, 10, 5

My idea was to transition from swing to squat to push-up. I’ve done something like this before. The rep per exercise went like this:

2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2

Total rep per exercise in my old routine: 40 x 3 = 120

Total rep per exercise in my new routine: 80 x 3 = 320

WOD comes from the trainer for 300 Rise of an Empire

Posted in Uncategorized by Fated Blue on February 20, 2014

Very simple yet very effective for fat burning and strength building. I’ve done something like this before and made a ladder of 2 to 6 and 6 to 2 for the 3 exercises. I also did a pair with swings and squats and another pair with swings and push ups.

This is one of the most efficient home exercises anyone can do with one tool. I love my kettlebells! 😀

Sprinting And High-Knee Running: Half Cardio, Half Leg Torture

Posted in health, life by Fated Blue on February 16, 2014

Today I did something for an extra workout in the afternoon. I usually perform my kettlebell exercises in the morning (today I did 100 double swings with 2 x 24 kg, 5 double squats, and 5 presses per arm) and this afternoon, out of sheer boredom, I decided to burn extra fat. My original plan was to play basketball and maybe try and recapture my old moves. Sadly, after venturing into four basketball courts within the village, everyone else got there first. I started searching at 4:30 PM and gave up at around 5:15 PM. The courts were really far from each other so I started running towards each one. When I finally gave up on playing today, I figured I should run instead.

And I did.

Gym Bullies and How to Deal

Posted in Uncategorized by Fated Blue on February 8, 2014

Bullying was never a positive word to begin with.

The Kettlebell Fairy

I can’t speak for everybody, but I know that I personally go to the gym to relax.

I try to spend as little time as possible socializing, I turn my phone off, and I just work out.

Yesterday, however, my entire gym calm was disrupted by two middle aged women with a sense of entitlement and a bad attitude.

I was going through a circuit, doing step ups, cable rows, and leg raises. Halfway through my workout, these two women came over and took over the only functional cable stack in the gym. Very politely, I told them that I had been using it and asked if I could work in between their sets.

As this has happened to me before, I was expecting a simple “sure, no problem”, or even a reluctant “whatever”. Instead, both women got defensive and flat out rude, but finally agreed. 

When it came time…

Book Review: Wall Street Stories by Edwin Lefevre

Posted in life by Fated Blue on February 8, 2014

I bought this book for two very notable things:

1. I’ve planned to get into the stock market for ages and I figured this book is a nice read and guide.

2. It was on sale at 90% off.

I was so excited to read this book that I literally brought it everywhere with me. I mean, it was a big plus that it was so small despite it being hardbound. I could never find it boring when I read this and I would always reread a few stories or two just so I can get the whole idea of why Edwin wrote it or to get the clues or the tricks the characters use to win at the stock market.
