It’s been a while since I did one of these posts!
I still have favorite things that I come across all the time!
This month is a little different since we are all stuck at home and there is NO gym to go to!
Many of us have had to get creative with our workouts! I am right there with you!
We have quite a good bit of fitness equipment here at our home and I can get a great workout in for the most part but I miss the atmosphere of the gym at times!
Since I’ve had a little more time on my hands I’ve been experimenting with different workouts! Which leads me to my first favorites of the month of April!
TRX and Kettlebells–
I have loved my kettlebells for a long time and my TRX since I got it earlier this year!
But combining them in my workouts has been awesome!
I use them together for deadlifts, squats, rows and a ton of other exercises!
It has added a level of balance and using my abs in a different way! I have been quite sore a couple of times! Which seems odd since I usually lift rather heavy most of the time. I feel its because it uses companion muscles!
This has been a great time to work on my fitness level and just experiment!
My next favorite is not really fitness related but does relate to the overall healthiness of your feet!
I have struggled with foot issues for a while. I have plantar fasciitis in my right foot that flares from time to time and I strained the peroneal tendons in my left foot!
A regular flip flop just won’t cut it! They don’t offer much support and that’s a priority especially for plantar fasciitis!
Last summer I had a cheapo pair of knock off Birkenstocks. They worked well enough. But I broke down and purchased a real pair that were on sale! A really good sale!
They have mad a huge difference in my feet! I love the support!
My feet feel much better!
What about you?
Have you used a TRX and kettlebell together? Maybe separately? If not give them a whirl! You will love them!
What about Birkenstock’s? Do you love them? Do you love them but think they’re ugly? (OK maybe I do a little!)
Until next time!
