I got myself a pair of 24 kg kettlebell last Monday as a Chrismas gift to myself. I’ve owned a pair of 32 kg for about a year now and I still can’t bring myself to do proper cleans or presses (and yes, I can’t even perform them single-handedly, don’t even let me discuss my futile attempts at a snatch…) and I figured I jumped the weight from 20 kg to 32 kg too fast. I didn’t know what I was thinking and quite frankly I wasted an entire year of not being able to practice my favorite double kettlebell routines.

MY OWN KETTLEBELL LADDER-COMPLEX

I love training with kettlebells. I’ve been blogging about them like crazy over the past few weeks and all this because of the various benefits of training with them can do.

So with this kind of enthusiasm, I’ve been trying out new stuff lately. I’m just a few days fresh from my recent kettlebell achievement and I’ve been doing something new. Here’s my current routine for this month. I’ve been experimenting with ladder exercises and complexes for the past two years and I figured it’s about time I combine the two. I’ve seen a lot of videos and blogs regarding ladders and I haven’t really given ladders a try or maybe that much enthusiasm. Here’s my own version of a Kettlebell/Bodyweight Ladder-Complex (which I’ll call Ladder-Plex or LP). Consider that I only have about 20-25 minutes to do these in the morning because we all have to go to work!
