Ah, another year of shamelessly taking pictures of myself doing kettlebell swings in my living room is coming to a close. As I’ve done the past two years, I wanted to round up the most popular P&I workouts from the last 365 days. These were the posts most trafficked, shared, pinned, tweeted, etc. by all you beautiful people. I can’t thank you enough for your continued support, and am looking forward to many more years of sharing awkward workout selfies with you all! Now let’s get to the countdown…
5 | Tabata Interval Kettlebell Workout
Kettlebell workouts make these top 5 lists every year with good reason–they’re effective! This full-body workout takes just about half an hour to complete.
4 | Upper Body Kettlebell Workout
Upper body workouts were a big hit on the blog this year. Noted! In this one, you’ll complete three rounds of upper body exercises using various weights of kettlebells. Because of the dynamic nature of the moves, your core will be targeted as well.
3 | Upper Body Hand Weight Workout
I couldn’t believe how quickly this one spread around Pinterest! For this workout, think low weights, high reps. Your arms and shoulders are going to burn like crazy!
2 | 30-Minute Bodyweight Tabata Workout
This is this workout’s second consecutive year in the number-two slot. You go, Glenn Coco! It really is a killer, and the best part is that no equipment is required. This is a great one to do at home or while traveling.
1 | 5 to 50 Ab Workout
This ab workout Does. The. Trick. Even when I do it and am distracted watching TV just sort of half-assing my way through the routine (I shouldn’t be admitting I do stuff like that, huh?…), I feel it in my core the next day.
What was your favorite workout this year? Did it make the top five?
