Kettlebell training is awesome, but there are some kettlebell combos that are just torturous but so good that you’ll do them anyway. You know what I’m talking about, you procrastinate including it in your workout, you hesitate about starting your workout, but you dig in anyway, and while you are working through it you switch from not wanting to do it, to wanting more and entering euphoria.

Without further ado, here’s the most world’s torturous kettlebell combo you actually want to do.

This combo is designed by Cavemantraining and consists of the following kettlebell exercises.

  1. Single-arm swing
  2. Swingclean
