Lifting weights combined with cardio exercises really floats my boat. In addition to this I like to workout with kettle bells more than dumbells, especially when the weight increases and I also love to throw in a high amount of repetitions while I am at it. Because of all of that, this CardiWOW workout 20 minute – kettlebell – craze is just right up my alley. Are you joining?
LETS KETTLE ON!
To complete this 20-Minute Kettlebell Workout you only need two things: yourself and a kettle bell.I use anything in the 12kg to 20kg range for this particular workout and go up to 32kg when I am doing some of the exercises separate. NOTE: you do not have to use heavy weights for this workout, in fact if you want to focus more on the cardio aspect of the workout I actually suggest that you use lighter weights (such as 8kgs) and that you make sure to amp up your repetitions.
The workout consists out of 3 rounds of 5 exercises. You will find yourself doing:
1. Kettlebell deadlifts
2. Goblet squats
3. Russian swings
4. Around the worlds
5. American swings
You start with an amount of 15 repetitions of each movement and work your way down simultaneously. This workout being only 20 minutes, stops at 12 but you can make it an hour long if that tickles your fancy 🙂 I’d love to hear if you liked it. Drop me a note in the comments.
