As the name implies, it’s a simple kettlebell cardio workout with just 5 kettlebell exercises and easy-to-remember rep counts.
I know you want this quick, so here it is:
- 10 x kettlebell swing
- 5 x racked squat (10 in total by performing a set on each side)
- 5 x overhead press (10 in total by performing a set on each side)
- 5 x crush grip tricep push-ups (only 5 in total)
- 10 x cross-mountain climbers
3 minutes rest
4 more rounds
1 light to medium weight kettlebell
You want to use a light to medium weight so that you don’t fatigue, i.e. struggling to squat or press the weight, because we want that cardio effect, i.e. we want to keep moving as fast as possible and complete all rounds with minimal rest.
