Kettlebell Burpees: A Pretty Cool Workout When You Want Something Different

Posted in health, life, youtube shows by Fated Blue on May 25, 2014

I’ve been experimenting with a whole roster of movements for my kettlebell workouts and it wasn’t until my recent detour from kettlebell training did I realize that I forgot one workout that I found very, very good for fat burning and a pretty sweet cardio. I’ve performed this type of workout before, using lighter kettlebells, and I’ve used them as part of a very long complex. It’s called the kettlebell burpee.

Now you may simply do a Google search and you’ll find a whole bunch of other videos of which you might mistake as the kettlebell burpee but not really. Although this is just me sticking to what a burpee should look like with kettlebells.

Back to Basics: Single Kettlebell Workout with Push-ups

Posted in health by Fated Blue on February 23, 2014

I tried a little something this morning. It went like this:

Tool: 1 x 32kg kettlebell

Workouts: Swings, Goblet squats, Push-ups

Rep per exercise: 5, 10, 15, 20, 15, 10, 5

My idea was to transition from swing to squat to push-up. I’ve done something like this before. The rep per exercise went like this:

2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2

Total rep per exercise in my old routine: 40 x 3 = 120

Total rep per exercise in my new routine: 80 x 3 = 320
