Thank you Victoria’s Secret for sponsoring this post. While this was a sponsored opportunity from Victoria’s Secret, all content and opinions expressed here are my own.
I have another killer kettlebell workout for you guys! Are you ready?!
This one incorporates three movements that work your entire body from head to toe. They’re a mix of strength and endurance and focus on both your upper and lower body as well as your core and posterior chain.
The workout is a total of five rounds with each one ending with 1-minute of rest to help you keep up the intensity. If five rounds is too much, feel free to scale the rounds to three or four. You’ll still get a kick-butt workout!
Ok, time to break a sweat!!
The first exercise of this workout is Pike Push-Ups and they’re quite challenging, especially if you perform them correctly. (Be sure to watch the linked video for a tutorial!) There are only 7 reps per round, but you’ll really start to feel them as the workout progresses.
Then, it’s onto Alternating Jump Lunges. Perform 20 total (10 each side).
The final movement of the workout is kettlebell swings. You’ll do 16 reps and then rest for 1 minute to finish the first round. After that, you’ll complete 4 more rounds, starting with the Pike Push-Ups once again.
In this workout, I’m wearing The Ultimate Cross-Train Sport Bra from Victoria’s Secret, and it definitely lives up to its name!
As you guys might remember, I’m really picky about sports bras. Over the years, I’ve written a bunch of posts about my favorites because I know just how difficult it can be to find a good one that actually works. (I also have zero patience for uncomfortable/unsupportive sports bras during my workouts!) Well, The Ultimate Cross-Train Sport Bra is another sports bra that I am proud to recommend!
What I love best about this sports bra is its custom fit. Victoria’s Secret knows what they’re doing in the bra department and uses the same fit technology to construct their bras, which means they have an accurate fit and plenty of support. Even though it’s a sports bra, it’s sized like a regular bra (32D or 36C versus small, medium, large). The Ultimate Cross-Train Sport Bra has adjustable straps and a bottom band that also adjusts for a snug fit around your chest, which is something I’ve never seen on a sports bra before. It works really well, especially if you’re in between sizes.
I also love the full coverage of this sports bra. You could totally wear it alone or with a lightweight tank top and not worry about anything popping out the top. And, of course, I love the variety of colors and patterns available. They’re so fun, and I definitely want to add another one to my sports bra collection. But, I’m waiting until tomorrow (1/7) to take advantage of an incredible deal from Victoria’s Secret. More details below!
I also had the opportunity to try the Knockout Tights from Victoria’s Secret. How cool are these babies?!
I love the extra wide waistband that slims and stays in place during workouts. (I’ve worn them a number of times for CrossFit/KFIT workouts and they don’t fall down during Burpees, Wallballs, Thrusters, etc.) The fabric is soft and smooth and moves and stretches with you. There’s also a pocket in the waistband that holds an iPhone 6. Very cool.
Remember how I said I was going to wait until tomorrow to buy another Victoria’s Secret sports bra? Well, they are offering customers an amazing deal then. I honestly don’t think I’ve heard of one this awesome, so you definitely want to check and see what it’s all about!
