Kettlebell Training Benefits – Full Body Workout

Kettlebells are a great tool to have for your workouts. Especially now with a lot of people not in the gym.

Kettlebells can provide a perfect combo of Strength, Conditioning, & Balance.

They are perfect for a home workout. Since you only really need one.

KBs improve core and stability. Helps with mobility, and range of motion. And helps with muscle imbalances (versus a barbell, where your “stronger” side can take over).

Now that I sold you on getting a kettlebell or using one that you have access too, what exercises should you do??

Seriously, they can work the WHOLE body. You can use it in a bodybuilding style workout or a more cross training style workout. Or both.

Here’s a quick video demo, taking you through a handful of strength exercises. Working through the full body.

A couple tips:

Make sure to not go too light. You want to feel like you’re working out and challenging your body.

But, also, don’t go too heavy. Doing single kettlebell movements with a weight too heavy can lead to a quick injury.

Here’s a couple other Kettlebell Workouts to try out.

Cardio Kickboxing Benefits + Workouts

When I was doing In Person One on One Training, a favorite style of workout was always the days we did Cardio Kickboxing.

While I taught the basic techniques to hit a decent punch and kick, it was so much more than that.

A major thing was the stress relief it provided. To come in a just punch and kick things (mostly me!) was incredibly beneficial to the mood.

Other benefits included:

Better balance

Better coordination

Energy Boost

High calorie burning

Strength training without weights

Better Endurance, Speed, & Power

And another benefit was, you can do it anywhere. Yes, having a punching bag is a plus, but it’s not 100% necessary to get a great workout in.

Shadow boxing is great!

Getting a partner to hold some pads up is great!

It’s really a great overall workout.

Here’s 3 Cardio Kickboxing Workouts you can do anywhere.
