for whom the bell tolls | fitspiration friday

I love working out with Kettlebells. They make you feel warrior strong!

Here are my top 5 kettlebell moves:

  1. Kettlebell Swing – the ultimate in total core workout
  2. Kettlebell Sumo Squats – the king of the squat!
  3. The Kettlebell Snatch – power & strength
  4. The Kettlebell Windmill – a little tricky to master but great back, shoulder & core move
  5. Kettlebell Halo – core & upper body strength

Doing a 15 minute kettlebell workout at the end of your run or power walk is a fantastic way to insert that intensity that burns fat.

Or feel free to do a full body kettlebell interval workout using a Gymboss timer to keep you structured and fast-paced meaning you’ll get a cardio & strength session in one. 

Apologies for not explaining all of those moves, but it’s too difficult to put it down in words.  They say a picture paints a thousand words so here are a couple of Youtube clips I found to give you a good understanding of what your form should look like when you’re using kettlebells.

Happy Friday!

  1. I must admit that kettlebells have always intimidated me, but I’m feeling some motivation for picking one up after reading your post and watching the videos. I will keep you posted on my kettlebell experience next time I’m at the gym 🙂

  2. I’ve only ever used kettlebells at a fat camp years ago…. though I’m not really into weights sessions, other than as part of a Pump class etc (which is why I’ve done NONE in about 6wks!) Eek!

    1. I am always so intrigued by “fat camp” – sounds like fun! I know, Im a sucker for grueling military-type punishment, but I’ve always wanted to go to something like that!!!
      Does your new location have a gym with Les Mills?
