It’s been a hectic week here in LGF land, as Lou and I adjust to our new lives as Bondi hipsters. Between visiting the Bondi Farmer’s Markets, late afternoon swims at the beach, breakfasting in North Bondi, finding new places to work out and general exploration of our new environment, we’ve been busy little bees. Yep, while it’s been quite an adjustment for the both of us, we’re trying to make the most of this little piece of heaven you might know as the Eastern Surburbs!
One of the best things about this new setup is our gorgeous backyard. It’s plenty big enough for a good workout, and while I could bring out all of my training gear at once and put on a show for you, I think it’s more sensible to utilise just one or two pieces at a time. This week I’ve chosen one of my sometimes-neglected pieces of equipment – the medicine ball. Relatively inexpensive and very versatile, it’s an excellent choice for anyone looking at putting together a home gym.
Medicine Ball Workout
Squats x 12
Squat press x 12
Reverse lunges x 12/leg
Step ups x 12/leg
Core burner (see video) – 1-minute
[repeat four times]
This workout can be as easy or as difficult as you like – it all depends on the weight you choose and the intensity you work at. If I were you (which I basically am), I’d be doing the workout for time, and trying to beat that time when you revisit this particular workout.
If you’ve got access to a medicine ball give this one a go during the week and let me know what you think!
