When teaching group classes, one of my favorite ways to increase the intensity of a workout is to partner everyone up and have them push each other! So while my little sister Annabelle was in San Diego for the summer, I snagged her to film a fun partner kettlebell workout!
This workout can easily be used as a template for any of your favorite kettlebell exercises.
To make the workout more challenging, use double kettlebells for the movements or increase the time and number of rounds you complete.
Most important… HAVE FUN!!!
Please comment below and let me know how you liked the workout.
I had the pleasure of attending the Texas Open Kettlebell Sport Championships for the second year in row, and it did not disappoint. The event was unique; intimate and incredibly supportive, no music, and Gada Sport and kettlebell marathon sets after the traditional lifts. It’s amazing to Continue reading →
Biathlon in Kettlebell Sport is a competition event comprised of a 10 minute set of jerks, followed by a 10 minute set of snatches. If you’ve never competed in biathlon, you’re probably not ready to jump to a 10 minute set just yet... so here is a beginner biathlon workout you can use to get started!

This workout challenges your grip endurance with a swing-snatch set, kettlebell burpees, overhead holds, and single arm farmer walks.
Use a light to medium weight kettlebell for the swing-snatch set (to make it harder on your grip, don’t switch as many times throughout the set, or try using only one switch!). Use a heavy weight kettlebell for the burpee and farmer walks. The weight you use for the overhead hold depends on your shoulder strength and stability.
In this week’s workout, you will use 4 moves to build your kettlebooty (and really your whole posterior chain: back, glutes, hamstrings, and calves). You will need one heavy kettlebell, a pair of medium weight kettlebells, and a couple boxes.
If you don’t have any boxes for the deficit deadlift, feel free to improvise by using chairs, bumper plates, or simply standing on a ledge that allows the kettlebell to go lower than it would for a regular deadlift.
For this kettlebell challenge workout, add a repetition of each exercise every round until you find your limit (or hit 10 reps of each). To make the workout harder, increase the kettlebell weight or move faster. To make the workout easier, decrease the kettlebell weight or move slower.
