Kettlebells are a superb way of hitting all parts of the body, providing a really dynamic workout and being a great solution for weight loss to strength and muscle gain. Here’s a great extreme kettlebell cardio workout I came up with. Feel free to try it!

1) Swing

How to do it:

RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU

Stand hip width apart and hold the kettlebell as low as you can while keeping erect posture. Bend forward at your hips but keep a straight back.

Next pop your hips back into their original position as quickly as possible, the momentum should swing the kettlebell away from you and up in an arc. The weight will then follow the same arc back. Just before the kettlebell is about to hit you bend forward again so it swings between your legs and pop your hips again.

Reps: 10 Sets: 3

2) Goblet squat

How to do it:

Hold the kettlebell upside down just in front of your chest with one hand on each side of the handlebar. Squat down and back up.

Reps: 10 Sets: 3

3) Turkish Get-up

How to do it:

RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU

Lie face up on a mat. Roll to one side and grab a kettlebell. Roll onto your back and press the kettlebell directly above you. From this position contract your abs and sit up slightly placing your free arm on the ground at an angle supporting your weight on your forearm, then move so you are supported on your hand.

Now bend the leg on the same side as the arm holding the weight and put the opposite leg through it. Next move into a kneeling position by moving that same leg back while simultaneously moving the weight overhead.

From this Kneeling position stand up and keep the weight overhead. Now using the same movement patterns but in the opposite order and direction return to your original position

Reps: 10 Sets: 3

4) Clean and Press

How to do it:

Sit the kettlebell on the ground. Squat down and grab it with one hand, alternatively (and this is probably better) grab 2 kettlebells simultaneously and perform this exercise in the same way.

Quickly stand up from this position as quickly as possible while pulling up on the kettlebells letting them swing over your fists and rest on the back side of your wrist.

At this point your arms should be parallel with your shoulders and your elbow should be bent 90 degrees with your fists pointed toward the ceiling.

Then push the weights over your head and lower them. Lower the weight to the ground and repeat

Reps: 10 Sets: 3

5) Chest Press

How to do it: Lie face up on a bench and hold your arms to the side with a kettlebell in both hands. Press up so the kettlebells are directly above you and lower them agian

Reps: 10 Sets: 3

For each exercise do as many reps as you can. Once you cannot do anymore, take a small break drink some water then do one set of another exercise then go back and do your next set of the first exercise. This will keep your body fully engaged and your heart pumping. Follow this and enjoy the results!
