Whether you’re swinging, pushing or pulling, this can be a great way to torch out calories, strengthen muscles and raise your heart rate. Don’t believe us? Try out these challenging moves, and turn your bedroom into a new homemade gym!
The kettlebell deadlift is a great way to strengthen your lower body (glutes, hamstrings, calves) and your upper body (erectors, lats, core). These moves can play a pivotal role in improving your posture and balance.
The move: Stand on a flat surface hip-width distance apart, with the kettlebell placed in-line with your feet. Take a deep breath in to engage your core. Develop a soft bend in your knees and send your hips back until you are able to grab the kettlebell handle. Grab the handle with both hands, and push into the ground. Strengthen out your arms, and lift the kettlebell just above your knees.
Kettlebell Goblet Squat
Say hello to your new favourite squat variation. This technique is easy to perform, and is a great way to engage your full body. Get ready to work out your quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, and calves.
The move: Hold the kettlebell with both hands in front of your chest. Carefully send your hips back, and perform a squat.
Show off your upper body strength in this dynamic move. This powerful exercise targets your glutes, hips, hamstrings, and the muscles on your shoulders and back. Get your heart rate pumping with just one quick swing.
The move: Bend your knees slightly, and reach out to grab the kettlebell from the ground, and hike it back between your legs. Remember to keep your core engaged. Squeeze your glutes and let your hips snap forward before coming to a standing position.
In case a pushup wasn’t hard enough for you, ramp up the power with these Kettlebell Pushups. This move is a great way to gain upper body strength, and develop stability in your wrist and rotator cuff muscles. Get ready to perform this exercise anytime, anywhere.
The move: With the Kettlebell placed on the mat, prop yourself up in a plank position, with both hands holding the kettlebell. Slowly, bend your arms to lower yourself to perform a regular push-up. Then, push off the kettlebell, back into the plank position and repeat 5x.
Kettlebell Curtsy Lunge
Time to perfect your curtsy with this challenging move. Sculpt your glutes, improve your posture and develop serious lower body strength in one simple move.
The move: Begin in a typical standing position, allowing the kettlebell to rest against your right forearm. Perform a curtsy lunge by pushing one foot behind you and lunging at a 45-degree angle. Push back to return to your starting position, and repeat the movement with the kettlebell in your other forearm.
