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.
Each set takes approximately 2 minutes to complete. This makes the workout easily adjustable to fit your schedule. We recommend a total of 4 sets for an easier 10-minute session or 7 sets for a more challenging 20-minute session. Simple math will tell you that 8 sets should be accomplished in 20 minutes. However, this workout will wear you down and you may need more than the normal few seconds of rest between exercises the further you progress.
Our goal in creating this workout was to primarily target your stomach area and abdominal muscles. Although, you’ll certainly be feeling it in your arms and legs as well. Here is a breakdown of each exercise.
Exercises listed in order
- 20 Russian Kettlebell Swings
- 10 Goblet Thrusters
- 10 “Figure 8” Squats
- 10 Clamshell Sit-Ups
- 10 Push-Ups
Kettlebell exercises #3 and #4 are more of the unusual variety. If you’re unsure how to perform any of them, they are featured in the Stack 52 kettlebell exercise chart and playing cards. I’ve also made a video of this entire workout to demonstrate how to perform the exercises.
My technique is not without flaw. I’m not a kettlebell trainer or instructor. Rather, an enthusiast looking to reach his own personal goals. I still have about 40 or so pounds I’d like to lose and with workouts like these, I know it is only a matter of time before I reach that goal. Hopefully, this inspires others to stay motivated and get the results they’re seeking.
