The Best Full Body Kettlebell Workout – Build Strength – Part 1
After four gruelling workouts which focused on the lower part of the body, we are now moving onto working the body as a whole in the coming weeks.
It’s safe to say that working the lower body is most peoples least favourite part of the week.
So It comes as a refreshing change to be mixing it up and moving on to working the entire body.
If you have been following the “beginners kettlebell program” here, you will know that it has been challenging, but one that is worthwhile.
So, what do we have today in the first of four progressive workouts here?
As kettlebells are such a ballistic form of exercising, it seems only natural to work the body fully and we will be doing that with the routines on offer in the coming weeks.
For the first part here, I have opted for 8 exercises to start us off with and if you were to ask me…
I really enjoyed doing this workout, especially with me using my favourite 16kg cast iron kettlebell, as it feels a better weight for me to perform this workout with, as oppose to the 10kg counterpart in previous workouts.
This workout will take you around 20 minutes to complete and will burn around 300 calories. Which is great for a entry level workout.
Let’s take a look at the exercises in this routine today.
- American swing x 15 Reps
- Turkish get up
- Dead bug x 15 Reps
- Squat x 15 Reps
- Windmill x 6 Reps
- Clean & press x 10 Reps
- Russian twist x 15 Reps
- 3 point press x 16 Reps
As you can see from the exercises above, you really are getting a great total body workout that will hit the spot and all the major muscle groups in the body.
As mentioned, I really enjoyed this workout and exercises such as the “Turkish get up” and “American swing” are great full body movements, which require great concentration, form and focus… Especially with a heavier kettlebell, so good luck!
