Upper Body Kettlebell Exercises – Beginners program – Building Strength.
As we reach the fourth and final part of this upper body kettlebell workout program, its time to use what we have learnt in the previous three routines and smash this workout out the park!
If you wanted to go back and check out what we have done in the previous three workouts, then click here to see for yourself.
What we are doing today is increase the reps from the last three workouts and then add extra exercises to the mix.
Working through these routines in order if you are new to kettlebells will help you gain a great understanding of using kettlebells as well as improve your strength, cardiovascular output and endurance for the weeks and months ahead when training, either here or on the YouTube channel!
Always remember that when exercising with kettlebells or any other fitness equipment, is that you don’t rush any movements and never compromise your form and posture for the sake of speed. It’s not the Cross Fit Championship, so no need to go “hell for leather” as they used to say.
Although kettlebell training is a form of ballistic exercise and requires you to explode with speed at points, there’s a difference between explosion and rushing, so remember that and good luck!
