After our Honeybadgers did such an awesome job and took home gold on the Sunrise Slimdown, we’re back on Hawaii News Now KGMB!
Look for us every Thursday in the 7am hour. Each month we’ll choose a different health & wellness oriented theme and look at four different aspects or approaches to that theme.
This month it’s all getting started and maximizing your time in the gym. In 2000, CDC reported that just 10% of Hawaii residents fell into the category of an obese population. By 2010, that number increased to 24%. Here’s the catch, once we expand that number to include residents that fall into the overweight category along with the obesity numbers, that percentage skyrockets to show 57% of Hawaii residents are currently overweight or obese. Click here to see the official CDC obesity map. We have got to get ourselves up and moving. To to that, we’re going to look at four tools you can use at home or at the gym to create a fun and dynamic weight loss and strength training program.
This month we’re starting with one of my personal favorite tools in the gym, kettlebells. The Honeybadgers learned all about several different kettlebell movements during the Slimdown. This morning, we took a look at a couple of the more basic kettlebell movements, the clean and jerk and the two handed swing. I’ll post the instructional videos for each here in the blog.
