In the many years I've been a certified trainer, I love using kettlebells and training others to. They're a great way to build strength and coordination, and honestly, it's just FUN to swing around cast-iron (with control!). Kettlebells are a great addition to a home gym, but this workout can also be done at your gym! Today, we've got a great 3 round Beginner focused workout if you're just getting acquainted with kettlebells. We recommend using a 10-15lb kettlebell for this workout.
In 2 minutes, complete 10 burpees. Then, complete each exercise back to back. Once you're finished with your circuit, rest for 1-3 minutes. Then repeat for a total of either two or three circuits.
