I've been enjoying this workout a lot lately, and I haven't had any problems with motivation, simply because I like it. I like running intervals on the treadmill, and I love kettlebell swings, so I put them together in one workout.
This is taken from a blog post I wrote last week:
"It's important to have an exercise routine you find enjoyable, so you'll be more likely to stick with it. I'm a big fan of kettlebell workouts, for the reason that it is an effective, efficient, and fun way for me to exercise. But, I enjoy training with kettlebells, and I don't think of it as exercise, but more as an interest, or even a hobby. We all need a workout routine in our lives that we take pleasure in, and keeps us fit both physically and psychologically."
