12 Week Kettlebell Workout Program to Level Up Your Fitness
You’ll do five to six exercises every training day to work on your upper to lower body muscle group. You can see it in the video below, for example.
Warm-up: It is best to perform bodyweight aerobic exercises for a few minutes to increase your heart rate and oxygen supply and get your muscles ready before you start the kettlebell workout session.
Week 1 – Full Body
You can perform exercises in the circuit (performing one set of each exercise in one round) or follow a standard pattern (completing all sets of one exercise before doing another), depending on your fitness level.
Perform two rounds if you’re a beginner and three if you’ve been working out for a while.
The push exercises target the chest, triceps, and shoulders; pull exercises bolster the back, biceps, and forearms; and leg exercises involve training of the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves.
You can also integrate abdominal muscles on any day to hit your abs and obliques.
Instructions: Follow a standard set routine to perform the workout. For example, complete all sets of one exercise before doing another.
You can build strength and muscles with only kettlebell exercises. However, it requires proper training, a balanced diet, and a little discipline to achieve the best results.
