New Move Monday: Kettlebell Cardio & Balance:Pick up & Put Away
New Move Monday is back! And today, I debut the kettlebell! Some of you may not have a clue what they are, while others of you have seen them around but just aren’t sure what to do with them! I have been playing around with them for a little over a year now and really like how they provide a unique workout. I plan on adding some more KB exercises on here in the future, so stick around if you’d like to know more!
Today’s move combines cardio, strength and balance all in one. Review the instructions, then watch the quick demo video!
When to use:
I would add this in as an active rest or cardio burst in between weight exercises at the gym. I would also use this at home when I need to get in some quick cardio and a little bit of muscle work!
(Instructions below the picture)
Place the kettlebell on the floor beside you. Shift over to that side, leaning heavy on the bent leg. Reach across and grab the kettlebell.
Hold KB with both hands while you come center while standing on one leg.
Shift back to the starting position as you place the KB back to the same spot. (Land gently!)
Push off the floor, again, with the bent leg and return to a one leg position without the KB. REPEAT all reps on one side, then switch sides!
DO 2-3 SETS (each leg!) of 15 pick up/put aways.
or if doing for a cardio burst
Do 60 seconds each side, a few times!
