Killer kettlebell workout

I haven’t written a fitness post in a while but I have been working out a lot! I’ve been running 3-4 times a week (training for my first 1/2 marathon) and doing 2-3 kettlebell and body weight workouts to keep my muscle strength up. I’m really loving a new blog I found called MyoMytv.com! Marianne is a certified kettlebell instructor who blogs from Ireland and she basically does what I’m hoping to do – blog and share her kettlebell and body weight inspired workouts!

To make it even better – she video tapes them all for others to follow and watch for proper form. I’ve decided to start making my way through them and hopefully get inspired to start recording some of my own for you (if you’d like to see me do this – feel free to comment in the section below)!

I’ve only used one workout of hers so far and it was so great I had to share and I highly suggest trying if you are up for a challenge.

She titled this workout the Feel It! Kettlebell workout … and she wasn’t kidding. I’ve done it twice so far and both times I couldn’t walk for two days after! The workout consisted of 6 exercises, 3 rounds – 45 seconds of all out work with 15 seconds rest periods in between.

  • Goblet squat
  • Alternating kettlebell swings
  • Vertical pull/burpees
  • Stand-knee-stand (right)
  • Stand-knee-stand (left)
  • Two squat jump/burpees

Take a look at her video to learn the proper technique for all the exercises:

 

Like I mentioned before – this workout was KILLER. If you are new to kettlebell workouts please start with a low weight and only do as many reps as you can. Take as long as you need to fully recover between sets before starting the next one and remember that the workout is only as good as your body allows – you will get better as you keep training.

Give it a try and let me know how you do! If you have any questions leave me a comment and I’ll try to answer to the very best of my ability!
