The Only Kettlebell Workout You'll Ever Need

The Only Kettlebell Workout You'll Ever Need

The Ultimate Total Body Kettlebell Workout

I love this workout!  I did it outside this weekend and I burned over 500 calories!  It's a great total body workout and all you need is a kettlebell or two, so it's easy to take outdoors.  It rotates between upper, lower and core exercises so you will be able to keep breaks to a minimum.  Kettlebells are cheap and so versatile - if you don't own a kettle bell, it's a great starter piece of equipment since you can use it in so many different ways!  We use the metal Cap Barbell Kettlebells at both our gym and home (you can find them here).  

The things to remember:

  • Always use good form when doing anything with the kettlebell - if poor form or too heavy of a weight is used, it can cause strain in your lower back.  If you suffer from lower back issues, this may not be the workout for you.
  • I used the same weight for all exercises, but feel free to switch between weights for different exercises.  (I used a 15 lbs kettlebell)
  • Always remember to keep your core engaged and never hyperextend back.
