Full Body Kettlebell Workout – 15 Minutes – Tough Total Body Conditioning
After focusing on specific body parts over the last few weeks, I thought it was time we went back to doing a classic style kettlebell routine.
The workout here has 10 gruelling exercises to work through, that will give you a solid full body workout.
It is suitable for any fitness level, but if you are a beginner, take time to look at the Turkish get up before attempting it with a heavy kettlebell…maybe do this exercise without the equipment until you get used to it?
If you are a regular participant of routines here, you will know we love EMOM workouts and that’s what we have done this time round.
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.
We are doing as many controlled reps as possible within the 45 second period, then taking 15 seconds rest, to prepare for the next exercise!
I used a single 16kg cast iron kettlebell for the workout, which works really well for the exercises in the routine.
As mentioned, we have gone with some classic kettlebell exercises here, so it’s worth using a medium to heavy kettlebell for this workout.
A bonus to consider here is that we don’t have any repeated exercises, apart from the fact some exercises are done on one side of the body, then repeated on the other side.
We have 10 exercises to work through, all challenging and all of them will give you a total body workout within 15 solid minutes of action.
The exercises on offer today are as follows:
- Cross Snatch x 2
- KB Thruster
- TGU x 2
- Rack Squat x 2
- Cross Swing x 2
- Full Circle
- Cross Curl x 2
- Feet Up Press
Where it states x 2 means the exercise is repeated on the opposite side of the body.
The TGU (Turkish Get Up) is an amazing exercise, as it is working the entire body within one Movement. If you aren’t familiar with the exercise, its worth taking some time to see how it’s done before using a kettlebell.
It can get confusing having your arms and legs in the correct spot and the last thing you want is to injure yourself, so take your time here.
Once you get the hang of it, you will really enjoy this exercise, its very satisfying.
As you can see from the exercises above, you are going to get a total body workout, which is working all major muscle groups within a single workout. Fabulous.
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.
