How do you get results using a Kettlebell in only 60 minutes per week?
I know this may sound like a promise that you would see on a late night infomercial or some other gimmick that would never work, but I’m here to tell you, there is a way if you are willing to do the work.
The Kettlebell’s Primary Function
What is so special about the Kettlebell?
The Kettlebell’s unique design, the U shaped handle, is what makes it so different from everything else on the market, but it’s not only the way it looks in comparison to a dumbbell or barbell. The kettlebell challenges the body on several planes of motion.
How does this effect your workout?
•The body must recruit more stabilizers to balance.
•The core must be engaged during all exercises.
•The central nervous system responds to it as an extension of the body.
•Higher repetitions are possible because of the resting position in the hand.
•Calories burned are both aerobic and anaerobic.
How is it possible to workout 60 minutes per week and see real results?
You will break this 60 minutes up into 3 twenty minute sessions.
During these 20 minute workouts you will be working hard and pushing yourself.
These workouts must be done with the right Kettlebell exercises and the right Kettlebell weights.
Often people start with a weight that is too light for them because they are new to Kettlebell’s and they are familiar with weight training where you start off light and gradually increase to heavier weights as you become stronger.
When you use the Kettlebell, you have to remember you’ll be using some momentum. Momentum will help you lift the Kettlebell. Think of it as if you’re pushing a child on a swing. The moment they sit in the swing, it’s completely still but the more you push it, the higher it will go on its own. The same is true with the Kettlebell. When you’re using your legs and your glutes to lift the Kettlebell, not your arms and shoulders, the Kettlebell begins to create a pendulum effect and swings up effortlessly.
If you’re Kettlebell is too light you will most likely be lifting it with the arms and shoulders. If you’re using the right Kettlebell, it should feel too heavy for your arms and shoulders but just right for your legs and glutes.
Each 20 minute workout should involve the following
These exercises should be done back to back with little rest in between, 20-30 seconds maximum
The idea is to work hard and get your heart rate up in the fat burning zone and keep it there.
If you are new to Kettlebells and unfamiliar with the exercises listed I teach all of them on my Kettlebell Bombshell DVDs and many on my YouTube Channel as well.
I also post a weekly Wednesday workout on my Instagram and do a live Periscope on Wednesday’s at 9 pm EST going over each workout.
You can ask me anything about the workouts or even do it with me.
