TT Bootcamp Workout #4 – “Tabata Time” (Advanced)

Bodyweight training is the perfect compliment to kettlebell work.

By strategically blending KBs and calisthenics, you can hit all five aspects of fitness:

  • Muscular endurance
  • Flexibility
  • Cardiovascular fitness
  • Muscular strength
  • Body composition

Today’s workout is from the “Turbulence Training Bootcamp Workouts” ebook. I highly recommend you pick up a copy and get some great ideas on how to incorporate bodyweight workouts with and into your kettlebell program. (Turbulence Training Bootcamp Workouts is actually oriented towards trainers and fitness professionals, but truly ANYONE looking to reap the benefits of bodyweight exercise can benefit.)
