Using Kettlebells for a Killer Workout

Kettlebells are an amazing addition to your workout arsenal. Using Kettlebells recruits more stabilizer muscles and works the targeted muscles through a wider range of motion due to its off-center design. Isolation exercises done with dumbbells and barbells do not hit those stabilizing muscles to the same degree.

Kettlebell training focuses on movements, not muscles, whole-body, functional training, strength as a function of mobility, and cardio and strength combined.

Here is a great Kettlebell (KB) Ladder workout for you to try.

KB Swings – Start at a low weight and go up, up and up (hence the ‘Ladder’ part of the workout). Lift as much weight as you can safely with PERFECT form. Do each weight 10 times back to back.

KB Goblet Squats – Same as above

KB Front Squats – Perform four sets of 20-25 reps

KB Push Press – Same principle as Swings and Goblet Squats.

Drop those Kettlebells and grab a medicine ball!

Wall Ball – Three sets of 50 reps

Ball Slams – Three sets of 50 reps

Then stretch out and get some rest you will need it. 🙂
