Lower Body Kettlebell Workout Program
After finishing the upper body section of this beginners kettlebell workout program, we are now moving onto everyones favourite routine…the lower body kettlebell workout.
If you wanted to go back and check out the previous four upper body workouts of this series then CLICK HERE.
Just like the upper body workout series, we are starting off with a steady workout, to get used to using the kettlebell with the lower part of our body.
We all know how important it is to have a fully functional and healthy lower body. I know its most peoples least favourite part of the week, leg day.
However, it can’t be overlooked and this program will help you gain that strength and conditioning you need.
So what do we have coming up?
You have a four part lower body workout series, which will enable you to progress through the coming weeks.
We are going to be increasing the reps of the exercises, along with adding extra exercises too.
Tale Of The Tape
Beginners lower body workout no1 has 7 traditional lower body kettlebell exercises that workout the major muscle groups, that will no doubt have you aching days afterwards.
So always remember to warm up and warm down to reduce this as much as possible, although we all know DOMS can’t be helped.
The first workout in the series has the following exercises:
- Single leg raise x 10 reps on each side
- Swing x 20 reps
- Goblet squat x 20 reps
- Reverse lunge x 20 reps
- Deadlift x 20 reps
- Calve raise x 20 reps
- Hip thrust x 20 reps
This workout won’t break any records for being the most gruelling, but its not intended to either.
It’s for people who haven’t used kettlebells before or they are very new to using them.
The workout has two rounds of action and will only take around 12 minutes to complete.
Not that its a race or anything, that’s how long it took me and I wasn’t rushing.
Im sure you will agree, this workout…although simple in nature will get the blood pumping and give the lower body a great introductory workout.
For the workout I used a 10kg cast iron kettlebell. I normally use either a 16kg or 20kg, but to show the correct form and posture I opted for the lighter weight of them all.
