All About Kettlebells

Are you getting bored with your workouts? Is your fitness routine feeling a little bit boring? Maybe it’s time to spice it up a bit! Last week, I showed y’all a fun new workout using resistance tubing. This week I have a workout using nothing but you and a kettlebell! Have you ever seen those weird looking weights with handles at the gym? Meet the kettlebell…

Where to find kettlebells.

There are many different exercises you can do using a kettlebell! So for your next workout, set the dumbbells aside, hop off the elliptical and try out the kettlebells!

You can also get your own to use at home from several different places, and there are tons of different kettlebell weights to choose from.

First, you can always check out Amazon. They have tons of different brands and sizes for you to choose from. I recommend starting in the 15-20 lb range for women and 30 lb+ range for men.

 If you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for on Amazon, here are some other places to check out:

Kettlebell Exercises

Karaoke Walking Lunges

Walk sideways {similar to karaoke drills} cross one foot in front and squat, step out with back foot and regular squat. Continue doing a crossed squat followed by a regular squat for about 30 yards {or roughly the length of a driveway} and then go back to your starting point facing the same direction. Make sure you’re crossing the opposite foot in front now! During this exercise you can do it with no weight or hold your kettlebell at your chest on each side of the handle for an extra challenge!

Tricep Extension

Side Row

Russian Twists

Lunges with 3 Pulses

Start with your feet together. Step forward into lunge. While remaining low in your lunge, pulse for 3. Step back together. Then step forward with opposite foot into lunge and pulse for 3. Step back together. Repeat 10 times on each side for a total of 20 lunges. During this exercise you can do it with no weight or hold your kettlebell at your chest on each side of the handle for an extra challenge!

Side Dips

Inch Worms

Once you get to plank/push up position, do two push ups before walking your hands back towards your feet. Stand all the way up before starting your next inch worm!

Kettlebell Swings

That’s a kettlebell wrap.
