Full Body Kettlebell Workout to Improve Speed and Mobility
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.
Usually, I’m able to breakdown workout videos step-by-step and detail each movement. In this case, Jason performs these moves so quickly it’s hard to tell where one ends and the other begins. He makes use of one kettlebell exercise that I rarely see these days, the forward press. Check out how he combines this with the side squat lunge and the standard squat.
As you can see, he appears to do some kettlebell rows throughout this sequence. Notice the footwork displayed too. There’s a lot of flexing, bending, and stretching of the knees and legs. This is one workout that requires a lot of concentration and focused breathing.
Kettlebell Mobility Workouts Are the Perfect Blend of Speed, Power, and Agility
Most of the kettlebell flow workouts I’ve come across are challenging enough. However, they usually don’t include such a wide radius. As you just saw, the left and right motion of this workout span several feet wide. I appreciate that Jason didn’t go too overboard by throwing in some forward and reverse lunges. I think the way it is constructed with the forward press is a great way to work out the arms in addition to the legs.
Per Jason’s recommendation, it is suggested to do 5 sets of this flow for 60 seconds. Give yourself 30 seconds of rest to catch your breath. The total time will clock you in at just under 10 minutes. This makes it the perfect way to start or finish another short workout.
If you’re an athlete looking to improve your speed and motion, be sure to follow Jason on Instagram. Having just discovered him and his many kettlebell videos, he’s quickly becoming one of my favorites to follow. Although I’m focusing on weight loss, it’s nice to come across workouts like these that don’t rely on the swing.
