10X Kettlebell Workout

This week’s workout is a EXTRA FUN, which in my book means there will be lots of sweat involved! We’ll work on 5 reps of 5 different kettlebell movements, which will be completed straight through for 25 reps total. You will then set the bells down, rest as long as needed, and repeat 10X.

*Pro tip: If you’ve never done these movements or you’re just not sure what weight is appropriate, go conservative on the kettlebell weight and use 8-12kg (250 reps is a lot!).

**For additional help with technique, check out my Jerk tutorial, Long Cycle tutorial, and Snatch tutorial.

Long Cycle Sample Training

Based on the popularity of the Kettlebell Competition Sample Workout I posted last month, I decided to make a follow up competition-style workout!

Last month’s training was “interval” style, meaning short work intervals with rest intervals being less than or equal to the work intervals. Today’s training is “repetition” style, which means longer work sets with rest intervals 1-1.5 x work intervals.

If you haven’t done much endurance training with kettlebells, I would highly recommend using lighter weights when attempting this workout (guys 12-16kg, ladies 8-10kg).

Have fun, and remember the first minute is a lie!!!

Turn up the tempo on your Jerk and Snatch lifts with this workout! Test your ability to accelerate with an increasing tempo Jerk set and then race the clock to complete your snatches before time runs out.

Balance Challenge Workout

A successful overhead press requires core strength and stabilization, as well as utilizing the connection between your feet and the floor. So you can probably imagine how lifting one leg off the floor and THEN pressing overhead would be a little harder, right?!

This week’s workout features several exercises that will require you to stand on one foot, which are great for testing coordination and balance, as well as just mixing up your workout from the normal exercises. Good luck!

Kettlebell Competition Sample Workout

As a Kettlebell Sport competitor and coach, I get a lot of questions about how to train for a competition, and what exactly the training sessions look like.

Obviously what your specific training program should look like depends on your skill and fitness level, what particular strengths and weaknesses you have, and a multitude of other factors… however, there are guiding principles to follow when training for a kettlebell competition. I’ve outlined some of them in this article.

Today’s workout is a sample training that I would program for myself or my students in preparation for competing in Long Cycle (Clean & Jerk). Give it a try, and let me know what you think!

Monday Madness Workout

Balance and conditioning are elements of fitness where “if you don’t use it, you lose it” definitely apply. Let’s make sure we don’t lose them, shall we?!

Today’s workout practices balance with a single leg-single arm row, which activates the gluteal and core muscles to stabilize the body.

The conditioning portion of the workout is brought to you by a double kettlebell complex and an exercise you probably all know and love (or hate!): the burpee!

Have fun! 😉

The hips are the center of power for almost all athletic movement. Kettlebells are great for improving hip strength and power. Thus, by the transitive property, kettlebells are great for improving athletic ability!
