Health and fitness coach Marcus Filly is joined by Senior Kettlebell Coach Eric Leija for a brief but intense kettlebell workout. Eric is well-known for his kettlebell flow workouts, however, this one might be the most impressive of all.

The routine appears challenging enough. The fact that both Eric and Marcus are performing it in sync with 126 Lb. Kettlebells is even more impressive. The whole thing only lasts 40 seconds or so, but you can tell by their expressions afterward just how much effort is required! It looks like they are slinging around a cannonball!

Breaking Down This Kettlebell Workout

Obviously, we wouldn’t recommend using that large of a kettlebell for the average person. Perhaps half that size or even a quarter would be sufficient. It’s important to remember that it’s not a strength competition when performing kettlebell workouts. The size of the kettlebell and the number of reps should align with your personal goals and your current physical abilities.

Looking at the kettlebell exercises above, you’ll notice they aren’t overly complex. Essentially there are 3 exercises performed in the upright position. The real benefit comes from the seamless fluidity from one to the next. Even when the set is repeated there is no awkward pause.

I admire the strength it takes to pull off all of these moves without flinching. The thumbnail frame of the video shows each coach holding their kettlebell in the rack position. That’s 126 pounds loaded directly on their forearm! I don’t even want to think what would happen to my body if I tried that in my current state.

I'm a web designer and kettlebell enthusiast on a quest to lose fat, build muscles and live a healthier lifestyle. I truly believe that exercising with kettlebells in conjunction with dieting is the most effective and efficient way to reach this goal. If you have the will and motivation, there is no reason you can't do the same.
