I see a lot of other kettlebell trainers and enthusiasts on here working out with double bells of the same weight. Honestly, I’m a little envious! However, I don’t have the cash to spend on two kettlebells of equal weight. So, I like to get creative and integrate mixed weights into my workouts from time to time.
Now that I’ve lost a considerable amount of weight, my fitness goals have started to shift. I’ve been focusing on building strength and muscle, however, there are several other areas which need improvement as well. Flexibility, range of motion, and of course stability and balance. I consider these to be finesse attributes that often get overlooked. Although, the two exercises I’ll be discussing will also help to build strength. Specifically in the legs.
Anyone who follows Jillian on Instagram probably knows how she loves to use kettlebells as an anchor point. This time she mixes up both competition kettlebells with lighter traditional-styled ones. It’s not a strenuous workout by any means, but it will keep you on your toes for sure! That’s the beauty of kettlebells, you can target so many areas of fitness. It doesn’t have to be just about strength and power.
Before I came up with Game of Bells: Swinging to 300, I created another method to do 300 kettlebell swings in a workout session. It doesn’t involve downsizing or switching weights. It should be done with whatever current kettlebell weight you’re comfortable with. For myself, that weight is 35 lbs.
Even though at this time I’ve had several kettlebells at my disposal, I’ve naturally stuck with my current weight and haven’t touched the others in quite some time. That is until now. I wanted a workout that incorporates 3 different sized kettlebells while still providing a challenge. Surprisingly, I believe I’ve accomplished just that.
There are a variety of different exercises that can be done to strengthen your core muscles. Those muscles, the ones that are located around your pelvis, are important for balance and stability. A floor exercise like the bridge is an example of one such core exercise that can be integrated into a workout or used as a warm-up. However, when it comes to working out multiple muscles at the same time, no other piece of gym equipment does more in less time than the kettlebell. Especially when using them in flows.
If you’re like me and want to lose weight quickly by working out with kettlebells, you need to check out the video in this post. The kettlebell exercises featured aren’t overly complex but they will challenge you! It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or experienced kettlebell user, this workout by Chandler Marchman is great for all fitness levels.
The author of this workout, Anna Junghans, intended it to be for females. However, like most kettlebell workouts, anyone can benefit from it! It’s simplistic by design which makes it great for beginners. However, still effective enough for kettlebell veterans who want to work on their balance and dexterity.
Whether you’re new to kettlebells or a veteran, this particular flow should be easy enough to recreate. There are no crazy hand passes or rotational moves you need to worry about. Rather, each exercise is executed with simple and quick precision. It might not look as glamorous as some of the kettlebell mobility workouts, but your body will certainly feel it at the end.
Athlete and home fitness guru Jordan Morello shows us that you can get a great kettlebell workout while seated. In a recent Instagram post, his first 3 slides take some of the lesser known kettlebell exercises and add a creative twist to each. The real impressive part is that 2 of those exercises are done with the legs raised. This not only makes it more difficult for balancing but also puts more strain on the abs.
