The weather is warming up and it's officially outdoor workout season. We reached out to trainer and kettlebell master Jacques Delaugère to put together a full body kettlebell workout to kick your week off. So clear some space, grab a kettlebell, and let's get started.
Perform these patterns in a 3-5 sets, 5-12 reps scheme with 45-60 second rest between sets.
Strict Presses: When pressing loads overhead you're performing one of the better trunk stability (core) patterns as you prevent any arching in your spine while improving your push strength.
Half Kneeling Halos: the half kneeling nature challenges your stability but the fluid movement of the halo allows to tap into your thoracic mobility all while engaging your trunk throughout.
Goblet Squat + Prisoner Curl: this squat / curl combo hits perfectly your lower and upper body specifically your quads, glutes and biceps respectively.
Kickstand Bent Over Rows: these translate to your more typical everyday movements, look to improve your back strength with this pattern
Single Arm Swings: this is your go to for an explosive hip extension, strengthens your whole body while being one of the most effective metabolic exercises.
Single Arm Cleans: the most conventional method of loading the body with the kettlebells so perfecting this whole body pattern is imperative.
