Mobility work is so important in our training, especially as we get past the age of 40. It’s the key to executing kettlebell exercises with proper form, as well as preventing injury. Problem is, we don’t always have time to do it. Today, I am going to share a kettlebell mobility “combo” exercise with you will only take three minutes – so no excuses! Use this as a warm up for your next kettlebell session, or any time:
3-Minute Kettlebell Mobility Exercise
PART 1 – Do a goblet squat
PART 2 – Do a kettlebell halo
Set your timer for three minutes.
Start with six or eight reps of this goblet squat plus halo combo, alternating back and forth between the exercises without putting the kettlebell down.
Rest for 20 or 30 seconds.
Pick the KB back up and continue with six or eight more reps of your goblet squat + halo combo.
Do this until your three minute timer runs out!
Mobility work is key to both prevent injury and get the most out of our workouts. If you know you need to do it but never seem to have the time, give this 3-Minute Kettlebell Mobility Exercise a try before your next KB workout and notice the difference in how you move and feel!
