Kettlebell Pullthroughs (Lower Body)
How to Perform: Position your feet in a slightly wider than shoulder width stance. Grab the two kettlebells and get them moving in a pendulum motion. As the kettlebells move back between the legs, you have to bend the knees and absorb the momentum before reversing the movement with a powerful hip extension.
Benefits: Strengthen posterior chain and build explosiveness in the legs.
Beyond the Range Push-ups (Upper Body)
How to Perform: Perform a normal push-up while holding on top of the kettlebells. Really squeeze the handles to make sure the kb’s stay in place. Squeeze the glutes and remain rigid in a straight line position while you lower (eccentric) and drive (concentric) throughout the movement.
Benefits: Strengthening the shoulders, chest and triceps in a full range of motion (ROM)
Jackie I need some advice on hanging skin. Is it possible to reduce the look of the excess skin from a dramatic weight loss? I have now lost close to 85lbs and still can find a reason to hate what i look like. I still have about 45 to 50 lbs to loose and I am afraid of falling off the wagon. Thanks Kelly
