Bumps into my program this December

My program

First month

Second month

The whole month began with me ripping a callus on my left hand. This hampered my program and I had to focus on bodyweight workouts for one week. Not to mention how I condensed it from 20 minutes to just 10 because of lack of sleep (Christmas party performance practice) and fatigue from not getting enough sleep. The second week started out fine but last Wednesday was a cursed day that I had to stop training until I’m fully rested (and I’m sure I’m fully rested now; will train tomorrow).

I first suffered from chills last Wednesday at around 1:30 AM. The thing was, it wasn’t even that cold or rather not cold enough for me to have chills. I also felt feverish which made my body feel hot to the touch. Chills and hot temperature, I was already concluding that I wouldn’t be able to workout that morning but I never thought it would get worse.

A few hours later, I had a bout with migraine and nausea right after waking up. I figured it was perhaps due to overeating which resulted to a bad gassy stomach. I was seriously burping with an intensity and consistency that would’ve filled up a small hot-air balloon if put together. I ate too much the other day and I overestimated my body’s ability to digest and metabolize the food I ate. I couldn’t even walk straight without feeling the need to throw-up. I was then rushed to the hospital.

My Latest Kettlebell Creation: Godzilla’s Armor Building Complex

Posted in health, youtube shows by Fated Blue on July 5, 2014

I’ve been playing with my 24 kg kettlebells with Dan John’s Armor Building Complex and Pat Flynn’s Godzilla Complex. Both are extremely efficient at fat burning and muscle building and both will definitely strengthen your body as a whole. I’ve done both for weeks on end, alternating them on a daily basis.

So I figured, since I’m now including a pair of 32 kg bells in my workout schedule, I might as well try and combine the two.

One set would look like this:

2 double cleans

1 strict double military press

3 double front squats

1 double kettlebell lunge per leg

1 military press  per arm

Fat Burning “Fibonacci” Kettlebell Complex

Posted in health, youtube shows by Fated Blue on June 1, 2014

I wanted to spice things up on my weekends so I decided to invent my own little complex based on the ever popular(?) Fibonacci Sequence earlier today.

I take this inspiration from Pat Flynn’s Sequential Dismay. There are two versions of this as of this writing and below are the official videos. Note how Pat uses snatches and his friend uses the one from the blog.

 

 

Bonus: Pat Flynn’s Sequential dismay (both versions) using two kettlebells performed by this guy.

Kettlebell Burpees: A Pretty Cool Workout When You Want Something Different

Posted in health, life, youtube shows by Fated Blue on May 25, 2014

I’ve been experimenting with a whole roster of movements for my kettlebell workouts and it wasn’t until my recent detour from kettlebell training did I realize that I forgot one workout that I found very, very good for fat burning and a pretty sweet cardio. I’ve performed this type of workout before, using lighter kettlebells, and I’ve used them as part of a very long complex. It’s called the kettlebell burpee.

Now you may simply do a Google search and you’ll find a whole bunch of other videos of which you might mistake as the kettlebell burpee but not really. Although this is just me sticking to what a burpee should look like with kettlebells.

My New Kettlebell Habit: 10×10 Front Squat

Posted in health, youtube shows by Fated Blue on November 9, 2013

This is literally based on Pat Flynn’s video. Check this out:

This is my new Saturday thing. I love it because it’s easy and hate it because it kills my thighs. Nevertheless, it feels great and is a good workout be it for cardio or for strength building.
