I'm not sure how often the average kettlebell enthusiast works out during the week. Myself, I like to do 5 days in a row (Monday - Friday) for 20 minutes each day. In order to sustain that frequency, it's important that I leave a little bit in the tank as they say. However, once or twice a month, I make it a point to go all out and torture myself with a grueling workout. Why? Sometimes it is out of guilt, especially if I've had a poor day of dieting prior to that workout. Other times, it's just because I want to test my limits and gauge how much my body can handle.
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.
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 an experienced kettlebell user, this workout by Chandler Marchman is great for all fitness levels.
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.
Out of all the kettlebell workouts I've seen, this one is perhaps the fastest in regards to execution and movements. Instagram user Jason Figorski (@figsfit) is a kettlebell specialist who creates some truly unique workouts. Many of his videos incorporate kettlebell flows with lightning-quick reflexes. Indeed, the below video is a great example of his speed and technique.
The word ultimate gets thrown around a lot when used in conjunction with kettlebells. Many trainers claim to have developed the best kettlebell workout. While many of these workouts are effective at building muscle or burning fat, which one reigns supreme is a matter of opinion. Well, until now!
Fitness model and coach Michie Peachie shared a video of her kettlebell workout that hits all the muscle groups. While it's not as intense as some of the other workouts we've seen, the slow pacing aims to build strength and endurance. Nothing too exotic as far as the exercises that are shown which makes it great for a beginner or advanced kettlebell user.
The first part of this kettlebell workout consists of 3 kettlebell exercises: The goblet squat, deadlift, and lunge. What makes this interesting is the fact that the kettlebell is held in the upright position the whole time. There are no flips, swings or rotating of any sort. Watching it in motion the emphasis is on movement on the vertical and horizontal planes.
The great thing about the wide variety and amount of kettlebell exercises is that you can create your own custom workout. We've done exactly that with our Gut Busting Kettlebell Workout. It consists of just 5 exercises! That's easy enough to keep track of and remember how many sets have been done as you progress through this workout.
Not to be confused with kettlebell 2 hand push press, the double kettlebell push press requires 2 kettlebells in each hand. Of course, the kettlebells should be of the same weight for balance and dexterity purposes. It is a great way to get a full-body workout with just this single exercise!
