3 Kettlebell Moves Missing From Your Workout…Until Now
Hey babe! It’s week 2 of your Summer Series and you’re rockin’ it! I’m so inspired by your dedication. As I shared last week, I got off to a late start with my Summer Series workouts. Life…and sleep training happened! 😫 And that’s OK. But this week I’m committed to getting my workouts in — I need you to hold me accountable and give mama some motivation!
I’m so excited to share today’s new kettlebell workout, Booty ‘N Bell, in your Tone It Up app! I loved filming it at Karena’s place in Palm Springs ~ I mean how gorgeous is that view?! And because it’s a kettlebell routine, you’re guaranteed to finish feeling strong, confident, and ready to take on the world! (Seriously, Karena made me hike a mountain the next day! haha)
This 20-minute workout is split into three targeted circuits: booty, back, and abs. Plus we’re mixin’ in some cardio-focused exercises to keep that metabolism revving! Head over to your Tone It Up app and sign up for class to start sculpting with me! And for a lil’ preview of the moves, check out three of my faves below! That kettlebell windmill is 🔥🔥🔥
Don’t forget to keep sharing your progress with us with #TIUsummerseries! Karena and I are always looking out for you!
3 Total Body Toning Kettlebell Exercises
Repeat the following circuit 3 times for a quick total body strength routine! Your muscles will be burnin’!
Staggered Stance Kettlebell Deadlift
Sculpts your legs and booty.
Stand with feet together, holding a kettlebell in your right hand, palm facing your thighs. Shift your weight to your left foot, and step your right foot a few inches back, keeping your heel up like a kickstand. With a flat back and knees softly bent, hinge at the hips and lower your torso to the ground, reaching the kettlebell toward your foot. Engaging your booty, hamstrings, and core, drive through your heels to come up to standing.
Do 15 reps on each side.
Sculpts your core, shoulders, back, and glutes.
Begin standing with feet hip-width apart. Bend down to pick up the kettlebell from the floor with your left hand. Perform a clean to bring the kettlebell straight over your shoulder, arm extended. Keeping the kettlebell directly over your shoulder, hinge forward from your hips to reach your right hand to your right foot. Return to standing, engaging your booty and abs to help you rise up.
Do 15 reps on each side.
Single-Arm Kettlebell Swing
Sculpts your legs, booty, and core, and boosts your heart rate!
Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-distance apart, holding a kettlebell in your right hand, arms extended down in front of you. Hinging at the hips, swing the kettlebell straight back in between your legs. Driving your hips forward, swing the kettlebell up to chest level, as you bring your left arm to meet it. Swap hands in mid-air, then swing the kettlebell back in between your legs with your left hand. Continue to alternate hands with each swing. Remember the power from this move comes from your lower body (not the arms or shoulders).
Do for 45 seconds.
