Kettle-Christmas Workout

Stay fit over the holidays using my favorite workout tool: a kettlebell! This workout will help you burn off the holiday indulgences, while still being short enough to squeeze in between lots of time with family and friends.

Two Hand Anyhow, Anyone?

Have you tried the two hand anyhow? It’s a kettlebell exercise that combines the windmill, curl, overhead squat, and press into one fluid movement. The two hand anyhow will improve coordination, strength, and mobility. The workout below incorporates the two hand anyhow into a full kettlebell training session – please comment if you give it a try!

Clean, Jerk, Row, Repeat Workout

I thought it’d be fun to incorporate the rower into a workout; it’s such a great conditioning tool that has many parallels to Kettlebell Sport lifting. Both are cyclic exercises that work the entire body by building strength-endurance and cardiovascular fitness!

Today’s workout is a descending ladder:
Clean & Jerk 30 reps – Row 500m
Clean & Jerk 25 reps – Row 400m
Clean & Jerk 20 reps – Row 300m
Clean & Jerk 15 reps – Row 200m
Clean & Jerk 10 reps – Row 100m

No rower? No problem! Substitute another form of cardio (i.e. running, biking, jump rope, AirDyne, etc) and go for time instead (2 min, 1.5 min, 1 min, 45 sec, 30 sec).

Windmill Complex Workout

A kettlebell complex is a series of kettlebell exercises that flow together into a sequence. You can change the number of repetitions or the weight of the kettlebell to adjust the difficulty. After completing this workout, try brainstorming your own kettlebell complex and let me know what you come up with!

This particular kettlebell complex workout includes windmills and overhead squats, which can be challenging movements if you don’t have the proper flexibility. To modify, you can bend the knees more on the windmill and substitute the overhead squat for a regular squat. The weight you use will be limited by what you can press and overhead squat with. This routine is great for improving overhead mobility and shoulder stability.

Endurance Challenge Workout

Take the endurance challenge and see if you can do 8 minutes per side with a kettlebell without switching or setting it down! The exercises vary from minute to minute, but you must complete a minute of all 8 exercises on one side before switching to the other. This workout will challenge your cardiovascular fitness, stamina, grip strength, and kettlebell technique.

Kettlebell Partner Workout

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.

Kettlebell Complex Conditioning Workout

Complexes – the combination of two or more movements – are one of the best ways to showcase why kettlebells are such an efficient tool for fitness. 

Complex exercises work the entire body, often incorporating elements of coordination, balance, and unilateral strength.

There is no other tool that makes complex exercises as comfortable and efficient as a kettlebell does. But then again, I’m totally biased. 😉 #kettleobsessed


What is your favorite kettlebell complex?

Grow Your Glutes Workout

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.
