Six minute kettlebell workout

6 Minute Kettlebell Workout ‘Little Smoker’

Here’s a little smoker that will get the heart pumping, a short six minute kettlebell workout which I like to do with a heavy weight, I use 30kg, you should do this with a weight that works for you, medium or heavy.

Three exercises of which two are combo’s, four sets of one exercise, 20 second on and 10 seconds rest.

Quick 6 minute interval workout.


You can use this to get a quick 12 minute workout in, 4 minute warm-up, 6 minute workout and 2 minute stretch, or you can repeat this workout by resting for one minute after a round and then repeat another 2 to 4 times.


Set one

  1. Single arm swing (L)
  2. Single arm swing (R)
  3. Single arm swing (L)
  4. Single arm swing (R)

Set two

  1. Dead swing clean and jerk (L)
  2. Dead swing clean and jerk (R)
  3. Dead swing clean and jerk (L)

Set three
