Strength and Conditioning Workout – Maryland
Kettlebells are popular not only because they are portable (Take them to the beach and workout with wild horses? Yes please.) but because they give a good strength and conditioning workout.
This kettlebell workout (geared for beginners because Maryland was one of the original 13 colonies) has two parts.
Part one focuses on strength. Part two focuses on conditioning. Both parts consists of basic kettlebell exercises.

We shot this kettlebell video on the Maryland side Assateague Island. So far out of all the places we’ve visited Assateague National has been one of my my favorites.
It’s not very often that my fitness blog and my travel blog line up. If you are interested I just posted about our day on Assateague Island with lots of pictures of wild horses. It’s a horse lovers heaven. (WARNING: I’m a little over the top when it comes to horses, i.e., weird horse girl.)
Do you like strength and conditioning workouts? Or do you prefer a separate workout for strength and a separate workout for conditioning?
