Eric and Juan Leija of Onnit fame share a creative kettlebell EMOM workout that features 4 sets of moves repeated for 6 rounds. That's 24 minutes of high-intensity kettlebell training! The exercises include staples such as swings, presses, snatches & high pulls. It may sound complicated but it is easy to follow and makes for a fun but challenging workout.
When I saw that popular fitness coach Funk Roberts posted another kettlebell workout video on YouTube, I was eager to break it down. After all, his last kettlebell workout is one of the most well-received that I've detailed on Kettlebell Krusher. Imagine my surprise when I learned that it was, in fact, not Funk who produced this workout. Rather, another coach using Funk's channel to gain more exposure.
Some of my favorite kettlebell flows aren't all that dazzling to watch but offer an effective workout nonetheless. The first flow I ever covered by Onnit's Eric Leija is one I perform weekly and still thoroughly enjoy. Why? It checks off all the boxes that I look for in a flow which are simplicity, pacing, and alternating sides for symmetry and recuperation.
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.
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.
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.
