Good morning!

If you’re looking to stay active during the holiday season, I have just the workout for you. It only involves three movements, including one with a kettlebell, so it’s great for when you’re short on time or motivation. Once you start, you’ll quickly realize that the combination of exercises really challenges your body, which means you’ll get an effective workout from head-to-toe! And if you need some additional motivation (or a gift for a fitness lover), new workout gear always does the trick, right?

I recently partnered with Champion to share a workout on CNC, and I seriously couldn’t wait to wear the outfit that I selected. I swear it made me even more excited to break a sweat! Here’s what I selected:

  • Champion Gearâ„¢ Women’s PowerFlex Seamless Tank in Voyage Teal: I love this tank top so much. It’s a seamless heather tank that wicks and dries quickly. The fabric is soft, lightweight, and stretchy, so it doesn’t chafe and keeps you cool. It’s already become one of my go-to tanks for sweaty CrossFit/KFIT workouts!
  • Champion Women’s 6.2 Knee Tight in Black: These are a great pair of workout capris that really stretch and move with you. They’re flattering with a super wide waistband and an inner drawstring for the perfect fit (love that). And they have a back zip pocket, side mesh pocket, and an inner key pocket to carry whatever you might need during your workout.

Ok, it’s time to workout! This is a FUN one for sure. The rep scheme for the push-ups and sit-ups first increases and then decreases while the number of kettlebell swings stays the same. Are you ready?!

The first movement is push-ups. You start out with 5 reps.

If you need to modify this movement, you can do them on your knees or against a wall.

After that, you do 5 sit-ups.

Then, it’s kettlebell time! You do 10 kettlebell swings.

Once you finish your kettlebell swings, it’s onto 10 reps of both push-ups and sit-ups before you move onto kettlebell swings again. You’ll continue to increase the number of reps until you hit 20 reps while the number of kettlebell swings stays the same. It’s definitely a challenging workout, but one that works your entire body in a short amount of time. Enjoy!
