Best Full Body Kettlebell Exercises – Part 2 – Getting Stronger!
In the next part of this beginners kettlebell program, we are at part 2 of the full body workout section.
As ever, we are continuing to build on what was done in the previous full body workout, by increasing the number of reps done in an exercise, as well as adding exercises into the mix.
Doing this will help build strength, endurance and improve your overall kettlebell fitness, as you progress through the program.

Total Body Kettlebell Workout
In todays routine there is a total of 9 exercises and it is a full body workout. We are going for two rounds of action and there is no break in between rounds, we will go straight into round 2 upon finishing the first round.
This workout isn’t a race, so please take your time and follow along, if you are struggling to keep up, then please take a rest or use a lighter kettlebell should you have one.
The workout takes just under 30 minutes (it took me 27 to be exact) and I burned around 330 calories.
The important thing to consider when working through this program is to have the correct form and not rush any of the exercises, as you can do yourself a serious injury if you do so, and none of us want that!
So what’s in the workout today you ask?
Lets take a look at the routine:
- American swing x 20 Reps
- Turkish get up & down
- Dead bug x 20 Reps
- Squat x 20 Reps
- Windmill x 7 Reps
- Clean & press x 12 Reps
- Russian twist x 20 Reps
- Chest press x 20 Reps
- Press & lunge x 10 Reps
As you can see from the exercises above, I have used classic or traditional kettlebell exercises which are great and work well, especially for those new to using them.
My personal favourite being the “Turkish Get Up”, as you utilise your entire body when performing the movement.
If you have never done a Turkish get up, it would be worth you doing the movement without a kettlebell, just so you can get used to doing the exercise without fear of hurting yourself with a kettlebell.
As mentioned, it is a challenging exercise, but a very rewarding one, especially if you are pushing yourself using a heavier kettlebell.
For this workout, once again I decided to use my trusty 16kg cast iron kettlebell.
