FightCamp 200-rep kettlebell full-body workout: exercises explained
Stand with your feet slightly wider than your hips and the kettlebell on the ground in the centre of your body; bend your knees to pick up the kettlebell. Keep your core engaged as you swing the kettlebell up to chest height.
Exhale as you swing it up and inhale as you lower the kettlebell and swing it through your legs. It’s imperative to keep your core muscles engaged in protecting your back.
Hold the kettlebell by the horns at chest level, standing with your legs wider than your hips and your toes facing forward. Bend your knees as you lower the body into a squat position. Keep your chest proud, core engaged, and heels heavy on the ground. As you straighten your legs to the starting position, exhale and squeeze your glutes. Repeat.
Single-Leg Clean & Press
5 reps on each side
Standing with feet hip-width apart, hinge at the hip to bend over and pick up the kettlebell with your right hand. As you rise to a standing position, bend the right elbow to press the kettlebell up over your head. Next, bend the elbow to straighten the arm back down and lower the kettlebell towards the floor. Do five on the right side and repeat on the left side. Again, remember to keep your core engaged.
Single-Arm Romanian Dead Lift
10 reps on each side
Standing with feet hip-width apart, hinge at the hip to bend over and pick up the kettlebell with your right hand. As you bend over, lift the left behind you, keeping it straight, your core muscles engaged, and your back flat. Next, rise to a standing position with your arms straight as your left leg lowers back to the ground. Do ten reps on the right side and ten reps on the left side.
