Kettlebell Workout Procerus Fortis 14

This workout requires two kettlebells, is 14 minutes in duration, and is a full-body workout for intermediate to advanced level of kettlebell training. You should have good overhead mobility, be able to clean, strict press, and most of all have the strength and stability to perform an overhead reverse lunge.

 

The Perfect Kettlebell Workout

The above video is one of my training sessions and shows:

  • 10 minutes warm-up
  • 14 minutes kettlebell workout
  • 6 minutes stretching

I will guide you through the warm-up, workout, and stretching in the video. From 0 to 8:42 is the warm-up, from 8:43 to 13:48 is the workout, and from 13:49 till the end is stretching and cool-down.

 

The areas worked but not limited to with this workout are:

  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Triceps
  • Quadriceps
  • Calves
  • Gluteals

 

The workout is 14 minutes EMOM. Every minute on the minute you perform 2 reps of the following kettlebell combo:

  • Clean
  • Strict press
  • Alternating overhead reverse lunge

The first set starts dead off the ground and the second set is continuous. Put the weights down and rest for the remainder of the minute.

 

Rx for males is 2 x 16kg/35lbs
Rx for females is 2 x 12kg/26lbs
Scaling and progression further down

But as always, form and technique first, weight and reps second.

Form and technique first, weight and reps second.
