Kettlebell Workouts

The Kettlebell Swing

3

Once forward, let gravity pull the kettlebell back down and continue to repeat the movement.

2

Let the kettlebell drop between your legs, and in one quick movement thrust your hips and squeeze your glutes to swing it forward again.

1

Stand with feet shoulder-width apart and grab the kettlebell with both hands in front of you and straight arms. 

The Squat

3

As you come back up, keep your core tight, drive the knees out and squeeze your glutes at the top.

2

Push your hips back, bend the knees and sit backwards into the squat with knees tracking the toes, neutral spine, shoulders back and lifted chest, until your hips are parallel to the knees.

1

Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, toes pointed outwards. 

The Deadlift

3

You should feel tension in the hamstrings as the kettlebells approach the knees; when you can’t hinge forwards anymore, extend the hips and return to start position.

2

Squeeze your shoulder blades together and keep a flat back as you hinge at the hips pushing your bum back as far as possible with weight on your heels.
