Welcome to the Swing in the New Year kettlebell challenge for January 2013!
Here is where you'll find all kettlebell workout ideas that I post. That's right, I'll be saving them all in one convenient spot for you!
Circuit from Women's Health:
The following exercises are from Intense Kettlebell Workouts. A couple of the exercises are repeats from last week (windmill and swing) so I won't go into those again but the rest are brand new to us!
This is not me. My muscles don't look like that....yet.
Lay on your back holding the kettlebell above you. Using your abs only, lift your shoulder blades off the floor.
One arm! Yikes!
With one arm out to the side, lift the other arm straight up in front of you and lower it.
Hold the kettlebell at your chest and keeping your knees above your ankles, stick your butt out behind you and squat as low as you can (without falling over) and stand back up.
A few moves from my kettlebell video (with Gin Miller).
Exactly how it sounds: draw a figure 8 in the air in front of you while holding the kettlebell by the horns. Keep your core tight and bend your knees. It's hard. Enjoy.
Rock the Baby
Squat Side Leg Lift
This one is called Spider Drags from Shape Magazine.
I've been loving all over this exercise that I got from Active.com:
Hold the kettlebell by the horns over your head. Move your upper body in a circular motion keeping your core tight. Good stuff. It doesn't feel hard in the moment. Wait until the next day. Bwahahahaha!
