My absolute favorite conditioning exercise with kettlebells is the Clean & Jerk (also known as Long Cycle). If I had to choose just ONE kettlebell movement to do to get in shape, this would be it. There’s something about the combination of a hinge movement plus bringing the bells overhead that just gets your heart rate going like crazy!
Don’t believe me? Try the workout below and let me know how you feel afterwards.
(And if you don’t know how to do a kettlebell Jerk – no problem. Just do a push press and you will get the same result.)
