I have a fast and furious workout for you today: Push-Pull Kettlebell Workout!
Before we dive head first into this workout, let’s talk about Thirty48. They call themselves “The Sock Geeks” because they are obsessed with sock technology and creating the highest quality product for customers.
The Ru Running socks are show above. They have extra padding to help prevent bruising and blisters during long runs. Runners that have lost toe nails or experienced blisters during long distance runs know how important that is! They retail for $13.99, but you can save 10% by entering code blondeponytailpromo at checkout!
Here is a little bit more info on the socks:
- Elastic Arch Support – This minimize Friction And Supports The Plantar Arch Of Your Foot
- Extra Padding On The Metatarsal Provides Abrasion Protection From Your Shoes Lacing
- CatalystAF – A Patent-Pending Design Which Creates Airflow In The Fabric To Induce Airflow
- COOLMAX® Fabric Is Designed To Move Moisture Away From The Body Keeping You Feeling Cool And Dry
Thirty48 also offers compression sleeves.
The sleeves are designed to improve recovery by increasing blood flow to the muscles of the lower leg. I typically don’t run in compression sleeves or socks, but I love wearing them post-run. However, I know many runners out there like to wear compression during a long run as the graduated compression can enhance endurance.
Compression isn’t just for running. After a legit CrossFit WOD, I use compression. Or, during a WOD that includes lifts from the ground (dead lifts, power hang cleans, etc); the sleeves protect my shins from the bar!
Upon handling the socks and sleeves, I could tell immediately they were high quality and durable, traits essential for endurance athletes. I wear a size 9.5-10 in women’s shoes, so I selected the size large running socks according to the size chart. However, I think the mediums would be a better fit for me, so keep that in mind when you order.
Now, for the workout!
The movements are demonstrated in the video. You will do each move for an entire tabata before moving to the next. You can take a break in between each exercise as well, so this workout would take a little over 20 minutes.
I use two different weighted kettlebells during the workout: 20# and 35#
Do you use specific socks for working out or running?
