Killer Kettlebell Leg Workout
I love, love, love kettlebell workouts! You can literally do them anywhere! There is no need for tons of equipment to get in a good lower body workout - you need just one or two kettlebells! I honestly did this workout one night that just didn’t want to leave my pups alone after I had been gone all day. I grabbed a kettlebell and worked out while they watched me (a picture of my workout buddy is below). Even though I wasn’t in a gym, I was sweating and my legs were exhausted.
I am not going to lie - this workout is a challenge! It supersets a compound lower body exercise with an explosive plyometric exercise. Your heart rate will be racing, so take breaks as needed!
Dig deep and challenge yourself - change happens when you get uncomfortable!
Superset each set of exercises three times and then move to the next set.
Take breaks as needed.
