With summer showing its rear end, it’s time to tone up your rear end for some back to school shopping. Whether you need to send your power suit to the dry cleaners or commute to work in jeans, a full body workout always revs up the new season.
Gone are the days of pool exercises, so it’s time to get prepared to do your workout indoors. Kettlebell exercises can be done at home, the gym or, while the weather permits, on your front lawn.
It’s important to know what to do with the targeted weights we sell. Try doing some reps of the popular Halo and Swing, while cranking up the volume on some cool soundtrack to get things moving.
Want to target your shoulders and legs? Get the skinny jean figure in just a few weeks by sticking to the halo.
- Support yourself by gripping the sides of the kettlebell handle (ball facing upward) and hold it at chest height.
- Make one big step forward with your right leg so your feet appear staggered, bending your knees to get into position.
- Lift the ball to your eye level and slowly circle it around your head to the left, allowing the ball to fall below the handle as you go along. Return it to the upright position when finishing one round.
- Return to your starting position and circle the kettlebell to the right.
- When you complete one rep, start with 5 reps for best results.
Wish you can join the cropped top craze? Tighten your abs with the proven swing move that does some good for glutes and hamstrings, too.
- To get started, stand with your feet shoulder width apart, gripping the top part of the kettlebell handle with both of your hands.
- Slightly bend your knees forward, hinging at the hips so you can swing the kettlebell between your legs.
- Get back up and into a standing position as you swing the kettlebell to chest height.
- When you complete one rep, aim to do 20 reps for best results.
