My 8 Favorite Kettlebell Moves

HI GUYS!!

In today’s blog post, I wanted to share with you guys some of my favorite toning moves you can do with a kettlebell. A kettlebell is one of my fav in-home or in-gym accessories to workout with, besides a booty band;)

Here are 8 moves I love doing:

1. Side crunches: basic, but this move is a GO TO for outer thighs and obliques. Try your best to balance your leg right above the ground when you’re in position A. This makes it more challenging for you to reallllly focus on your core.

2. Reverse Lunge + Overhead Press: This move will work your arms and legs/booty. As you lunge behind you, use your opposite arm for that overhead press. Using opposite sides of your body will require you to use your core to balance it out.

3. Kettlebell Swings: This move is so underrated and needs to be done more often! It works your arms, core and booty. HARD. Make sure in position A, you are not technically squatting, yet more so leaning forward, to hip thrust the kettlebell up. Squeeze your glutes and the top- using your lower abs and hips to push through.

4. Woodchopper: This move is basically a side lunge, but adding a twist to the top. Make sure to sit back into that side lunge, and as you come up, focus on bringing that kettlebell towards your waist towards the opposite direction of where you lunged down. This way, your abs are workin hard too!

5. Side Dips: Fav move for love handles and obliques. It’s super simple, but you have to put in the effort to feel this one. Stand tall and strong, good posture. Slowly lower the kettlebell towards the ground, and sinch your waistline back up to upright position. You need to tighten your abs to feel this one work!

6. RDLs: Work your glutes, hamstrings, and legs in this one. Stay close to your lower body as you come down. Slowly lower, and come back up with good posture.

A.

B.

7. Around the World: Take the kettlebell above head, and with your abs tight and good posture, circle it around your head. This one will workkkkk your upper body.

B.

8. Body Crunch w/ Press: As you bring your knee towards your chest, raise the same side arm up into an overhead press. Toning your arms, lower abs, and legs.
