Three Ways You Can Use a Kettlebell in Your Workout
Sometimes we really don't have time to head to the gym and do full body workout. If you are one of those people, then it is time to head out, purchase some workout equipment and start your workout at home. Here are five ways you can use a kettlebell in your workout.
As you can tell from its name, this is basically squatting. Stand, with your feet not too far apart, and hold the kettlebell, your arms pointing downwards. Start squatting, up and down, carrying the kettlebell in the same position.
Who said you need weights when you can use the kettlebell as weights. Get into position, feet not too far apart and bend down into a sitting position. Swing your kettle bell up and down from between your legs. Keep your arms straight, and swing the kettlebell up to shoulder height.
3. Side Lunges
A lunge is basically stepping one leg forward and bending your back leg, reaching a sitting position, but your knee not touching the ground. A sideway lunge, is basically doing a lunge, but twisting your upper body sideways. All you have to do is get into position, feet not too far apart, holding the kettlebell in your right hand.
Lunge forward using your left leg, twisting your upper body to the left, and lower the kettlebell, straightening your arms. Then repeat with your right side.
