***Always consult with your doctor before beginning a new workout program.

Kettle Bells

 

Kettle Bells are weights that can be used to add extra weight in body weight exercises. They can help you build more lean muscle mass which improves your metabolism and help with reaching your weight loss goals.

I bought my kettle bell at Walmart for about $30. I use a 20 lbs kettle bell, but I would recommend 10 lbs for starting out. You could even find kettle bells at Amazon (affiliate link): Tone Fitness Vinyl Kettlebell Set

Warm up

 

You want to warm up your muscles before starting any exercise to prevent injury. You can jog in place for 1 minute or do 1 minute of jumping jacks. Then you are ready to grab your kettle bell and start your workout!

30 Kettle Bell Swings

 

Hold your kettle bell with both hands. Spread your legs slightly wider than hip distance. Roll your shoulders back. Bend at your waist and swing the kettle bell between your legs. Then, bring the kettle bell up to shoulder height. Here is a video to watch to help with your form.

30 Dead Lifts

 

Continue to hold the kettle bell in both hands. Roll your shoulders back. Begin to bend at your hips keeping your back straight. Bending down and coming up counts as one rep.

30 Squats

 

Holding kettle bell in both hands, stand with feet shoulder-width apart. begin bending your knees, lowering your body into a squatting position. Keep your knees behind your toes. Pretend like you are trying to sit in a chair behind you. Lower the kettle bell to the floor, then straighten your legs and bring kettle bell up with you.

Side Pull

 

Hold kettle bell in one hand and bring to side. Keeping arm straight, lower kettle bell a few inches and then raise it back up. You should feel a pull in your oblique abdominals on the opposite side. Do 30 on one side, then switch to the other side.

Squat and High Pull

 

Hold kettle bell in both hands in front of you. Go back into squat position with feet shoulder width apart. Lower into a squat, but this time raise the kettle bell to your chest when you straighten your legs.

Reverse Lunge

 

Stand with kettle bell in one hand. Step backwards, slightly back and away from you to help with balance. Feel free to hold onto a chair for added support. Then return to standing position. Repeat on both legs for 30 lunges. Reverse lunges are easier to get proper form and keep your knees protected.

Cool down

 

Bring your arm in front of your body, pulling in right above your elbow. Hold for 30 seconds and repeat on opposite side.

Grab your foot with your hand and pull it behind you bending your knee to stretch your hamstring muscles. Hold for 30 seconds. Repeat for both legs.

That’s it!!! You are done! Congratulations on completing a full body workout in 10 minutes. If you found this workout too challenging, you can always start with holding a can or jar of vegetables and work your way up to heavier weights.

If you want more of a workout, you can repeat this set 2 or more times.

I’m Kate, mama to 5 and wife to Ben.  I love meeting new people and hearing their stories.  I’m also a big fan of “fancy” drinks (anything but plain water counts as ‘fancy’ in my world!) and I can’t stop myself from DIY-ing everything.  I sure hope you’ll stick around so I can get to know you better!
