Killer Kettlebells – Round Two

April 18, 2017

Our Killer Kettlebell Circuit was such a crowd-pleaser; we decided to bring back the kettlebells for round two of a total-body workout!

One round of this circuit should take about 12 minutes and you should earn at least 30 MEPs (that’s if your heart rate stays in the GREEN and BLUE zones; we think that’s a pretty conservative estimate and that you’ll earn more MEPs). We encourage you to perform two or three rounds total.

EquipmentEquipment You Will Need:

  • Your MYZONE heart rate chest strap
  • 1-2 kettlebells or dumbbells – one light, one medium-heavy

Instructions:

Be sure to perform a dynamic warm-up for 5-10 minutes in the BLUE and GREEN zones. Then, perform each of the exercises below for one minute. Quickly move on to the next exercise. Following one full round, take a 2- or 3-minute recovery and repeat for a total of 2-3 rounds. Select your kettlebell/dumbbell size based on what feels best to your body for each exercise.

If you need to increase or decrease the duration of each exercise or add more recovery, do it! Listen to your body and focus on form. You will be able to progress the duration of each exercise the more you practice!
