For the next 20 years, working out and lifting weights had been a pretty regular part of my life (minus a 6 month stretch after a major surgery I had when I was 18). Genetically, I have always been pretty thin, not muscular but thin. I worked out very hard through college and at one point in my early 20s, I had actually gotten to a point of being pretty muscular.
Like everybody else, the time commitments of work and parenting had limited the amount of time that I can spend in the gym. After workout out hard the first 6 months in the beginning of the year, and losing a lot of weight I had gotten back to a somewhat regular routine. Additionally I also play in a football league during the winter months and noticed that I have gotten a lot slower in this last year. I am not as quick off the ball or as fast in the open field as I used to be.
As soon as the season was over, I decided that I was going to try something different. I decided to go 90 days without lifting a single weight instead of a kettlebell. Every workout I am doing over the summer is modeled around losing weight, increasing speed, increasing agility. All of this is being done without a gym.
The only piece of hardware is a kettle bell (picture and one of the exercises I am doing is below.)
The workouts have included things such as step ups, horses, sprints, running, jump ropes, standing jumps, pull ups, push ups, and on and on and on.
Note the picture on the right, it doesn't look very hard. It isn't at the beginning, however do this non stop for 3 minute intervals and you feel like your legs are about to burn off.
