Kettlebells are the perfect tool for getting a quick and effective workout at home. They’re compact, relatively cheap, and deliver a brutal workout in a short time frame.
Here’s a ‘quick and dirty’ home kettlebell workout for you to try:
– 1/2 Get Up – 3 Reps
– Kettlebell Goblet Squat – 10 Reps
– Kettlebell Swing – 15 Reps
Do four rounds of this circuit, switching sides on the 1/2 Get Ups each round. Two kettlebells would be ideal for this workout – one smaller sized ‘bell to perform the Get Ups and another larger sized ‘bell to perform the Swings and Goblet Squats.
This workout works most of the major muscles in your body and takes around ten or fifteen minutes to complete. It’s simple, but far from easy. That’s one of the great things about kettlebells – you can get your strength work, core work, flexibility work, and even cardio work all at the same time. One or two kettlebells and you have all the equipment you need to get a fast, effective workout at home or anywhere you are.
One of the keys with this workout is that you take as little rest as humanly possible. If you take your time, and take long rest periods between sets, it’s not that hard. Make sure to focus on good form, but take short rest periods between each exercise. If you blow through it as fast as you can, it will be all you need for the day. Try this home kettlebell workout next time you’re pressed for time!
