These are just fun. There's something about looping the kettlebell around my legs that makes me feel like I'm a Globetrotter. (and yes I hum the Globetrotter song while doing them)
Mainly I dislike this one cause I can't figure it out! It takes coordination that I lack in some kind of way. SpiderMan, I am not.
I know the benefits of lunges, I know they're great for my legs and core, but I can't stand doing them. I feel so awkward and always feel like I'm never doing them right. I try to watch myself in the mirror and the form is correct (per my instructor too), but there's something about these that seems unnatural... perhaps cause my quads are burning!
You want me to drop my hips while balancing on my elbow and feet? Have you seen the size of my hips? So I know I'll love these once I work more on my core, problem is I have to do these to be able to do them better. Unfortunately my obliques are almost non-existent (for now) and I can barely keep up for more than 15 seconds.
These are here cause I'm 50/50 on them. While I appreciate them and can do them, they're very awkward pose and I often wonder what muscles I'm working when doing them.
Kettlebell Turkish GetUps
This should probably be on the list below cause I want to be able to do these. These are a great exercise using your entire body. I find them fun and interesting. A very unique exercise. I've done them a handful of times in classes, but it's always terribly difficult and takes multiple tries. Eventually I think when I grow stronger after doing them repeatedly they'll move up to the ones I love. For now though... they are my nemesis.
EXERCISES I WANT TO DO:
I've done a small amount of this on the EA Sports Active (PS3) but it was all shadow boxing, no kicking or sandbags. I'd really love to give this a try sometime. There's something about releasing anger and punching and kicking stuff that appeals to me. ☺
This is something I need to integrate into my training. First starting with negative pull-ups and then working from there. At my gym there are pull up bars right in the middle of our gym room and I want so badly to be able to jungle gym on them.
