Do kettlebell complexes build muscles?
Yes, kettlebell complexes build muscle if that’s what they’ve been designed for. They will build muscle if you incorporate the complex in your training regularly and keep using them in such a way that is designed to increase muscle mass. There is not some magic complex that will build muscle for you if you just include it a few times in your training, it all comes down to where you want to build muscle, the weight, your condition, and the program you follow. What follows is a great complex that can help you build muscle. The main targets are the legs, back, and shoulders.
How do you program a kettlebell complex?
How you program a kettlebell complex will depend entirely on what the exercises and the goals are. A complex designed for cardiovascular endurance should be programmed for high-intensity intervals or long durations. For the intervals, you can program a heavier weight than you would for a longer duration. For power training, you would do intervals or short sets with plenty of rest and a heavier weight than you would use for cardio. There is so much more to be said here that an article like this really won’t do it any justice, which is exactly why I recommend you buy the book How to Program for Kettlebell Training as it dives deeper into goals and how to reach them, which is what you should program for—goals!
If these kettlebell complexes are becoming too complex for you (pun intended) then you should look at a more basic but super effective kettlebell split workout like Prometheus Phase II. Check out the promo video below.
Kettlebell Complex Videos
For those that came here for kettlebell complex videos, this is it. Be aware, that these do require that you know the fundamentals of kettlebell training.
The Asgard Strength Complex
This complex is a bit older than the ones that follow, but it’s such an effective classic that it will never go out of style. Check it out. This is a double kettlebell complex.
The Mjölnir—A Total Body Fat-Loss Kettlebell Complex
If you’ve read our other article about kettlebell complexes then you would know that it’s not often we do complexes with more than one rep per exercise but this is that exception. This complex is performed with two kettlebells.
POSEIDON GRIND—A kettlebell strength combo
This kettlebell complex is performed with a single kettlebell and is optimized for strength and hypertrophy when programmed correctly. This complex hits all those muscles. Many years ago it was taboo to curl with a kettlebell because it was not functional. Listen, I get it, I was there and misunderstood the message and yelled “curling is not functional”, but then I grew up and learned a whole lot more. Curling is functional and I’ll keep saying it till everyone includes kettlebell curling in their workouts.
Last but not least, I leave you with the RAMSAR. An awesome grind for strength.
