AthleKinetix Fitness Challenge DVDs

The Athlekinetix Fitness Challenge program is a 3-DVD set with 2.5 hours of exercises promoted as a home workout for the beginner to professional athlete that features no-rest intervals and no repetition of the same exercise during the workout. Using no choreography, this aspect is geared to alleviate intimidation people often feel with choreographed routines, especially for those who consider themselves uncoordinated.

The instructor, Christina Leon, and her assistant demonstrate a number of different exercises for the legs, core, and upper body that challenge the cardiovascular system, balance and flexibility while aim at improving muscular strength and definition.  The manufacturer states you can mix and match exercises for a new workout every time – exercising for 10 minutes to up to 2 hours.

The structure of the workout program is designed as a circuit where the participants move from one exercise to the next with no rest, except to change equipment.  The instructors demonstrate two different levels of exercises and the participant can chose to do the more challenging exercise, or the modified version being demonstrated by the second instructor.  If individuals begin with the basic exercises demonstrated with just the dumbbells they can follow this program and as they improve their fitness levels they can invest in the other equipment required to do the more advanced exercises.

SKOGG System Kettlebell Workout

The SKOGG System is a complete stand-alone training method based on kettlebell and functional training. It is designed to improve your speed, power, endurance, muscular coordination and athleticism. This system is developed with all ability levels in mind.  The workouts use full body movements consisting of swinging and pressing kettlebells, working the entire body in one training effort rather than isolating muscles like conventional weight training. The SKOGG System is designed to get your body working together by integrating your muscles through movement patterns. The multiple planes of movement used in the SKOGG System are beneficial for joint health and flexibility and allow the individual to train every day without the need for recuperation due to hypertrophy.

Swinging kettlebells is a great way to strengthen your back. It strengthens your glutes, stretches your hip flexors, develops your back extensor endurance, forces bracing for spinal stability and strengthens your core with ballistic movement. Each SKOGG workout consists of a warmup and cooldown and the kettlebell session itself can be as short as 12 minutes and never lasts more than 30 minutes so your body burns carbs from muscle tissue not from fat.
