You know you NEED to warm up.
But unfortunately, when you’re pressed for time, don’t have a specific plan in mind, or just flat out don’t feel like it, the warm up is often the first part of a kettlebell workout to go.
So … here’s a super quick kettlebell warm up sequence for you to do before your next workout … it only takes two or three minutes, and it hits all of your major muscle groups. You’ll never have an excuse to miss a warm up again! 🙂
Start with one ‘naked’ Turkish Get Up on each side. Take your time and work through each position of the exercise.
Move on to one Turkish Get Up on each side with a very light weight. Same goes here – go very slowly, and make sure to work each position of the move.
Add a little more weight and do one more rep on each side.
You’ll end up doing three reps on each side … you’ll have hit your shoulders, back, core, hips, and more … and you’ll be ready to rock!
That’s it for now – thanks for reading, and talk soon –
