Kettlebells are a great way to build muscle, improve your balance, and increase your flexibility.
They’re also perfect for people of all ages and fitness levels!
Today I’m going to hook you up with a sample 15-minute kettlebell workout that’s perfect to get you started.
So what are you waiting for? Grab a kettlebell and let’s go!
15-min “Lifetime Kettlebell” workout [free sample] – from Over-50 KB Revolution
Do as many reps as you can of each exercise in 30 seconds. Take 30 seconds of rest between moves. Take 1 minute of rest between rounds. Do 3 rounds total:
- Two hand KB Swings
- 1 + 1/2 Split Squat (30 seconds per side)
- Single arm KB swings (15 seconds per side)
- T push ups
- Hand-to-Hand / DARC KB swings
You might not believe me, but I think we can keep training hard, even as we as we age! We just have to be a little smarter about it. Because if we work out the exact same way we did when we were 20 years old, it could be a recipe for disaster. We need to take things into consideration like:
- Work-rest ratio
- Balancing work to all muscle groups for the day / week / month
- Overall workout volume
- Proper form
Today’s workout is a good example of how to incorporate all of these things so that you can improve your ability to do what you love, eliminate the pain of getting older, and feel up to 20 years younger!
