Kettlebell Basics Combo #1

by admin on April 27, 2010

One awesome thing about mastering the basics of kettlebell training – the Swing, the Get Up, the Squat, the Clean and Press, and the Snatch – is that you can combine these exercises together into ‘flow’ combo circuits (see this post for more about the concept of ‘kettlebell flow’) once you’ve got them down.

So I’ve decided to do a short series of videos showing you how to do a few of these ‘kettlebell basics combos’. Here’s the first in the series:

To perform this combo, you’ll do 3 One Arm Swings, 3 One Arm Squat to Overhead Presses, and 3 One Arm Snatches, all continuously and on the same side (as shown in the video above).

You’ll then switch sides and complete the circuit again on the opposite side.

Complete ten rounds of this on the right and ten rounds on the left for a complete workout.


One more thing: doing circuits like these requires mastery of the basic kettlebell drills first. You must have a solid grasp of the basic drills before you can start ripping them off in a circuit fashion like this. If you’re just getting started, here are two places to start:

Great routing. Did this one today and really worked up a sweat. I’m tweaking my kettlebell workouts to be more conditioning oriented, and this one fit the bill perfectly.
