Kettlebell Workout

If your gym has access to one of these fantastic weights, go for it.  Make sure you ask a professional trainer how to properly use this so you do not injure yourself.  I think these have a little more to offer, such as maintaining control of a swinging weight versus you average weight.  If your gym does not have these, a free weight will do just fine.

You would be performing similar exercises as you would using an ez bar or other bar.  Some exercise suggestions:

  • Straight Leg Deadlift, Single Leg Deadlift
  • Modified Clean and Jerk minus the Jerk
  • Swing – involves placing both hands on the handle, squat down with weight between your legs, but not touching the ground, swing up while you are standing up, ending with your arms straight out in front of chest and repeat.  I love doing this as an active rest, which is performing a low or high cardio exercise.

You can get a great overall body workout and build your Glutes!  Bodybuilding .com lists several exercises for you to try.
