Brutal 15 Minute Kettlebell Upper Body Workout – Non Stop & No Repeat
After an over indulgent easter period, where I’m sure I wasn’t the only one who ate more chocolate delights than I should have.
It’s time to refocus our attention back to our fitness goals and smash them to bits.
This upper body workout is going to do exactly that, give us focus and get us back on track with where we want to be.
If you are a regular reader of this fitness blog, you will know how we pretty much exclusively use kettlebells and EMOM workouts.
We do this along with performing traditional kettlebell exercises, but also mix in a few alternative drills that work well for functional fitness and mobility.
Like the Wood cutter exercise in this routine. The movement of the exercise mimic’s the action when chopping wood (well as much as you can without an axe), as do other exercises in this routine.
Every Minute On The Minute
EMOM, or every minute on the minute workouts are a simple and effective way to put in a lot of work in a short amount of time.
An EMOM can be performed for any length of time. This structure allows people to get creative with their workouts and easily scale them to be more difficult as your fitness level increases.
Kettlebell workouts go well with this type of training in my humble experience.
So, what’s on the menu today I hear you ask?
The workout today has an impressive 10 exercises to work through, yes 10! Thats pretty decent for a 15 minute intense and non stop workout, with no repeated exercises, I’m sure you’ll agree.
What are these 10 exercises in the routine I hear you ask?
- Full pendulum Curl
- Press & Skull Crusher
- One Arm Row x 2
- Kb tuck
- Clean x 2
- Wood chopper x 2
- Football throw in
- Lateral swing x 2
- Snatch x 2
- Boat hold press
Note: Exercises x 2 is performed for 40 seconds on one side of the body, then repeated on the other side for 40 seconds.
This routine is going to blow those easter holiday cobwebs for sure and you will have had a challenging workout in the process.
As you know, I always recommend warming up before working out, so if you check out the video below it will take you to my 15 minute morning stretching routine.
Once you have warmed up and you are ready to go, let’s get on with the workout.
