When it comes to obstacles that keep folks from reaching their ultimate kettlebell training goals …
Time is always on the top of the list.
“Back in the day”, you probably had time to workout for an hour or two. And given that the average adult gains about one pound of fat per year, odds are that you were in better shape back then, too.
But it ain’t that way no more 🙁 Whether it’s career, family, your social calendar, or a combo of all three – lack of time is something that keeps you from getting your workouts in as consistently as you’d like.
Good news. I have a solution for you. It’s my 24 minute kettlebell workout. And if you got 24 minutes, you got enough time for this!! Check it out in the video below:
(FYI – this is a video version of the mud run workout I posted last week. It’s an awesome one and can be used not only to prep you for a mud run event – but for total body conditioning and fat loss as well.)
Strength/ Cardio Hybrid Mud Run Workout Circuit
You’ll do :45 seconds of cardio (jog, bike, jump rope, step ups, or jumping jacks) between each exercise. Perform each of the following exercises continuously for :45 seconds:
- t push up
- kettlebell squat
- pull up (or body row)
- box jump (or step up)
- bear crawl
- kettlebell farmer’s walk
- diagonal lunge
Do two rounds of this circuit total. Each round should take you about 12 minutes … so two rounds = 24 minutes.
If lack of time is a major obstacle for you when it comes to reaching your ultimate kettlebell training goals, this 24 minute kettlebell workout will solve your problem. It’s a total body conditioning circuit that’ll help you get in great shape and burn tons of fat at the same time. Enjoy, and talk soon –
