One of the best things about kettlebells is that when you know how to use them properly, you can build great functional strength that will help you in both your chosen sport, daily activities, etc… AND you can do it while taking it easy on your body and joints.
Adding “MRT” (stands for metabolic resistance training) and kettlebells TOGETHER makes for the ultimate combo!
In basic terms, MRT is intense cardiovascular and muscular training combined. It’s designed to leave the metabolism elevated for as long as 24 hours post workout, so you’ll be burning calories not only while you train but well after your workout.
For MRT, workouts should incorporate every muscle group with compound movements. Heavy resistance with little rest for a higher intensity session.
Here is an example:
Kettlebell MRT (free sample workout)
PART 1 – Do the following circuit four times, resting for 1 minute between circuits. Each exercise should be performed for 30 seconds:
- Walking KB goblet lunges (:30 per side)
- Kettlebell suitcase rows (:30 per side)
PART 2 – Do the following circuit four times, resting for 1 minute between circuits. Each exercise should be performed for 30 seconds
- Single arm KB swings (:30 per side)
- Body saw
- KB side lunges (:30 per side)
- High knees in place
This short workout is a basic example of how you can use the power of kettlebells and MRT to build functional strength, burn fat, and increase cardio, all at the same time.
