Are you ready to build your muscular endurance? We’ve got the workout for you!
Unlike other Duwe Fitness workouts, this session is a little more of a steady grind. You don’t need to push yourself to 110%, such as in HIIT-style workouts. Instead, the goal is to make it through the entire duration. We’re building muscle and amping up what you can withstand.
Remember to visualize where you want to be. It’s the only way you’re going to make things happen. If you don’t have a clear picture of what you want, build one! It’s similar to an architect designing a building. Without the blueprints and a clear idea of what the building will be, it would be impossible to build. Know where you’re going. You’ll get there that much faster because of it.
This workout today involves 4 rounds. You’ve got 45 seconds of work followed by 15 seconds of rest. There are 8 sets per round. All you need is enough space and a kettlebell heavy enough to help you make the appropriate gains.
So, are you ready? Let’s dive straight in!
Stand up tall, and step your right leg behind your left leg. Touch the ground. Come back up and alternate sides. Do this for the set duration. Make sure to go as low as you possible can!
