Workout Mashup: KETTLEconditioning and...

A "MASHUP" IS A TERM TYPICALLY USED IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY TO DESCRIBE THE BLENDING OF TWO SONGS THAT YOU WOULDN'T IMAGINE GOING TOGETHER BUT END UP SOUNDING TERRIFIC ONCE THEY'RE MIXED INTO ONE. WE CONTINUE OUR MASHUP SERIES BY PROVIDING YOU WITH TIPS ON SOME WINNING COMBINATIONS TO INTENSIFY YOUR WORKOUT.

KETTLEconditioning is one of the newest additions to i.d.'s group-fitness schedule, and it's quickly become one of the most popular. You enjoy Kettlebell Conditioning every Tuesday and Saturday as a fun way to burn calories and get strong. How do you workout when you're not swinging a kettlebell. Here are a few ideas...  

Mashup #1 - Kettleconditioning and Spinning

Kettlebell Conditioning provides you with a great way to build strength. While classes typically include cardio-based movements, you should consider a group-fitness class like Spinning, where cardio is the focus. While jumping, jogging, sprinting and climbing on a stationary bike, Spinning helps you build cardio endurance, stamina and power.

Mashup #2 - KettleConditioning and Yoga Basics 

On Tuesdays, Kyle Boerema leads an Intro to Kettlebells class at 6 pm that's followed by Brent Holten's Yoga Basics class at 7:15 pm. Taken back-to-back, you'll have the opportunity to strengthen your muscles in Intro to Kettlebells and then stretch out those muscles in Yoga Basics. Talk about a mind-and-body workout!

Mashup #3 - KettleConditioning and Body Sculpt

There's something visceral about swinging a kettlebell as hard and concise as you can. You leave these classes feeling strong and powerful, but sometimes you're ready for more. Take Body Sculpt, a class where you'll use hand weights, resistance tubes and BOSU trainers to target every inch of your body.

IN kettlebell conditioning, YOU'LL PERFORM SHORT PERIODS OF ALL-OUT EFFORT FOLLOWED BY PERIODS OF REST TO REACH "AFTERBURN." THIS AFTERBURN EFFECT IS THE REASON WHY INTENSE EXERCISE HELPS BURN MORE FAT AND CALORIES THAT STEADY-STATE WORKOUTS AND PRODUCES A METABOLISM BOOST FOR UP TO 48 HOURS AFTER YOU'RE DONE TRAINING.
