Many people love to utilize kettlebells when they workout. There are plenty of reasons as to why they would prefer to use a kettlebell compared to a different type of weight. A kettlebell workout gives you the options of working almost every muscle in your body without going back and forth for different weights.
In my opinion, you are able to do a lot more with a kettlebell. They are more comfortable to use when you are doing certain movements and lifts.
This may not be what you prefer, though, and that’s okay.
My advice is that you should at least give it a try, because I guarantee that you will feel the burn in a way that you never have before.
Kettlebell Workout: The Kettlebell Fat Burner
Kettlebells are great. They allow you to burn a lot more fat than you normally would.
They are more effective than dumbbells for certain exercises because of their shape, making them more convenient to use for dynamic movements.
This workout is all dynamic movements which allow you to burn more fat because you are working multiple muscle groups at once.
Here is the workout:
- Plié Squats – 1 minute
- Single Leg Deadlifts (Right) – 30 seconds
- Single Leg Deadlifts (Left) – 30 seconds
- Curl to Press (Right) – 30 seconds
- Curl to Press (Left) – 30 seconds
- Squat Swing – 1 minute
- Russian Twists – 1 minute
Rest for 30 seconds between each exercise.
You want to try and give your muscles a little bit of rest so you aren’t burning the entire time you’re working out. That slight bit of rest is perfect because it’s not too much of a rest. When you rest too long, you won’t gain as much as you could.
Plié squats are great for your legs.
They work the entire upper half of your legs, front to back.
You’ll get a lot of work in your butt as well. You’re creating a very strong base that everyone needs. Without a strong base, a lot of exercises will be slightly harder.
Single Leg Deadlifts
Form for this exercise is very important.
When you’re first starting, take your time. Make sure that you get your balance.
There is a huge difference from doing this exercise on one leg and two legs. If you’ve never had to do one leg deadlifts, you’re in for a treat because they force more muscles to work.
More muscles come into play because you have to do a lot of work just to keep your body from falling completely over.
Curl to Press
This is a personal favorite, mostly because I love working on my arms.
You are going from a traditional curl to a traditional shoulder press all in one smooth movement.
To make the transition from curl to press easier, make sure the kettlebell is resting on your wrist, then when you are at the top of your curl, rotate your wrist so you can have a proper shouler press.
You’ll be incorporating a leg exercise with an arm exercise with this.
The squat will work your legs and glutes while the swing will work the entirety of your arms.
This exercise can really get your muscles working harder because of how fast you’ll be able to increase your heartrate in such a short amount of time.
Russian twists are going to really strengthen your core.
Everyone needs a strong core, like they do a strong base, because it will help increase your balance and just make everything else that much easier when it comes to working out.
