Kettlebell Toning {Day 8}

kt2018

Do you have a busy week coming up and don’t have a ton of time to workout? No worries, I’ve got a sweat enducing, butt kicking, hurts so good Crossfit Mini workout for you! Best of all it will take less than 20 minutes!!

Just a few things before we get started:

  • If you are new to Crossfit/HIIT then do what is comfortable for you. You might only be able to do 2 rounds…that’s ok, work up to the full 5 rounds!
  • If you are new to Kettlebells then start out with a lighter weight {5-10 lbs} you can always go heavier once you have gotten used to the lighter bell.
  • Use the weight that is right for you. Don’t get over zealous and use a weight that is heavier that you are used to, work up to a heavier weight.

Ready to sweat and torch some fat? Yeah, me too!

Kettlebell Toning {Day 6}

 

kt2018

I’ve said it before and guaranteed I will say it again…I love squats! I love the challenge, the burn and of course the results! Well, today I have a Kettlebell Squat challenge for you!

Just a few things before we get started:

  • If you are new to Kettlebells then start out with a lighter weight {5-10 lbs} you can always go heavier once you have gotten used to the lighter bell.
  • Use the weight that is right for you. Don’t get over zealous and use a weight that is heavier that you are used to, work up to a heavier weight.

Do challenge 3-5 times a week do 10-20 reps of each type squat = 1 set | do 2-4 sets {remember to ALWAYS workout at your level, if you light-headed or are in pain STOP!} Challenge yourself by squatting as deep as you can while maintaing the proper posture!

Here are the Squats I have included in the challenge!

Kettlebell Deadlift Squats: 10/20 reps

  • Stand up straight holding kettlebell with both hands in front of you
  • Position your feet shoulder-width apart
  • Bend at the knees while pressing your hips backward.
  • Pause and slowly return to the starting position {don’t lock your knees}
  • That’s one rep

Kettlebell Sumo Squats: 10/20 reps

  • Stand holding the kettlebell with both hands down in front of you
  • Position your feet further than hip-width apart
  • Lower the kettlebell to the floor while doing a sumo squat with your butt back
  • Engage Abs
  • Return to start
  • That’s one rep

Squats with overhead Kettlebell press: 10/20 reps

  • Stand holding the kettlebell in both hands to your upper chest.
  • Position your feet further than hip-width apart
  • Bend the knees keeping your back straight
  • While doing the squat lower the kettlebell towards the floor
  • Hold
  • As you rise to the starting position raise kettle overhead, do not lock elbows
  • Return kettlebell to chest
  • That’s one rep

Kettlebell Goblet Squats: 10/20 reps

  • Stand holding the kettlebell at your chest, one hand on either side of the handle
  • Position your feet slightly wider shoulder-width apart
  • Squat down as low as you can, sticking your butt out as if there is a stool behind you
  • Looking up the entire time
  • Return to start
  • That’s one rep

For this workout I used a 26lb kettlebell {my favorite} but you will feel the burn with any weight kettlebell!

Now, GO and Drop it like it’s Squat!

Awesome huh! No matter what yesterday was like, today is a new day to start fresh and workout hard!

Now on to the workout!

Just a few things before we get started:

  • If you are new to Kettlebells then start out with a lighter weight {5-10 lbs} you can always go heavier once you have gotten used to the lighter bell.
  • Use the weight that is right for you. Don’t get over zealous and use a weight that is heavier that you are used to, work up to a heavier weight.

Like most of my workouts this can be done pretty much anywhere! Its a fairly quick yet butt kicking WOD!
