Over the last year and a half, my workouts (aside from hot yoga) have taken place either in my apartment or at my apartment’s small fitness center. I appreciate having some place to go that’s “outside” my apartment, but the fitness center definitely doesn’t have all of the bells and whistles and fun extras that you can sometimes find at a larger gym, which ultimately help keep your workouts interesting. Because of this, I’ve started adding to my at-home gym equipment, my most recent addition being the Kamagon Ball from Hedstrom Fitness.
The Kamagon Ball looks like a double handled giant kettle bell but it’s completely empty, as you’re able to add resistance through the addition of water. (Each ball has lines which mark how much water to add for your desired resistance weight.) If you haven’t heard of this before, it’s called hydro inertia training and “by utilizing Hydro-Inertia technology, you are able to initiate instability through a full range of motion with exercises that engage your entire body.” (Source)
Since I started using the Kamagon Ball, I can definitely vouch that it is not nearly as easy as it may look and has definitely left me feeling the shakes! Hellloooooo arm shake while trying to take this picture! (ha!)
Anyway, as you may have noticed last week on Instagram, I’ve teamed up with Hedstrom Fitness and Fit Approach to share 5 exercises you can do using the Kamagon Ball for a few Friday’s in a row and this week I wanted to make sure to check back in with you all and share them here too!
Here are today’s Friday Five Moves:
- Jump Squats
- Side Lunges
- Tricep Extensions
- Russian Twists
- Side Planks
You can do these body weight only, with your choice of resistance (obviously, I chose the Kamagon Ball), or a mix of the two. Bunched together, they made a great circuit!
DISCOUNT CODE: SPHF25 Hedstrom has provided a coupon code for Surge/Kamagon products for 25%, available to anyone in US / Canada. This code is valid from Friday, 1/20 until 2/28.
Also, for anyone wondering what’s been happening in my world, I’ll have a life update coming soon. Missed you all.
