Kettlebell Cardio Workout

This workout is all about building your strength and power ~ the benefit of combining weight lifting with cardio exercises. Follow the sequence below for 2-3 rounds. You got this girl!

Single-Arm Kettlebell Swing

Targets your booty, legs, core, and boosts your metabolism!

Begin standing with feet slightly wider than hip-distance apart, holding the kettlebell with one hand. Hinging at the hips, swing the kettlebell straight back in between your legs. Your opposite arm goes behind you. Driving the hips forward, swing the kettlebell up to chest level, keeping the arm straight. At the top, grab the bell with your other hand, then use that arm to take the swing back down. Remember the power from this move comes from your booty (not the arms or shoulders).

Do 15 reps.

Broad Jump + Triple Hop

Tones your legs and revs your heart rate!

Begin standing with feet about hip-width apart. Lower into a squat by sending your hips down and back, weight in your heels. Drive off your heels to jump up and forward, landing softly on your feet with knees bent. Then take three little hops backward to return to the start.

Do for 60 seconds.

Side Lunge + Shoulder Press

Sculpts your inner and outer thighs, booty, and shoulders!

Begin standing with feet hip-width apart, toes pointed forward, kettlebell in your left hand. Take a big step to your right with your right foot, as you sit back in your hips and extend your left leg straight. Reach the kettlebell toward your right foot, palm facing your leg. Come back up to standing, engaging your booty and core. As you stand, bring the kettlebell to your shoulder, rotating your palm to face outward, then press it overhead.

Do 12 reps on each side.

Twisting High Knees

Targets your core and legs, while raising your heart rate!

Begin standing, hands together at your belly button and elbows out. Drive your right knee up toward your chest, as you twist your torso to the right, bringing your hands to the outside of your knee. Immediately step it down, as you drive your left knee up toward your chest, twisting toward your left.

Do for 60 seconds.

Overhead Sit-Up

Works your abs and shoulders!

Begin sitting, with feet flat on the floor, knees bent. Holding a kettlebell with both hands, press and hold it overhead, slighting in front of your shoulders. Slowly roll onto your back, keeping the kettlebell straight out, then sit back up.

Do 15 reps.

Plank Jacks

Targets your core while getting in cardio!

Start in a plank position with your shoulders stacked over your wrists, feet together and body in a straight line from head to toe. Jump your feet out to the sides of your mat and back to center.

Do for 60 seconds.
