Time to end off the year off STRONG.
Time to EARN IT.
One of the main staples of training we utilize within The Forged Athlete Gym is that of Kettlebell Training.
Kettlebells are such a versatile tool that can be used for pretty much everything across the board.
Strength, Power, Conditioning…
You can get it all from one single tool.
With this, instead of just talking about how awesome kettlebells are, I figured I’d share my TOP 5 KB workouts from over the past few years.
There’s been a TON over the years so it was tough to pick out the top 5.
5 x Double KB Push Press
3 x Double KB Thruster
***Rest the remaining amount of time then repeat#2 KB WorkoutOne of the things I love most about KB’s is how you can easily get outside and train with them.
My next top training session had to be one from way back in 2010 when I cranked it out on the turf…
Of course, I brought my kettlebell
I cranked out 4 different short workouts on that trip, 2 on the way down and then 2 on the way back up and all of them were nasty.
My favorite out of the 4 was this one…
#3 TOP Kettlebell Workout…
This was the first one I hit after about 5 hours on the road at a rest stop.
It felt great to get out of that damn car and open up the body a bit!
One of the things we stress at The Forged Athlete is to TRAIN even when you’re traveling.
If it’s by car, you can easily bring a Kettlebell with you.
The #4 TOP Kettlebell workout was a nasty combination of double under’s plus a whole slew of Single Arm KB movements.
And to end things out at #5, this kettlebell infused workout I did right before the Superbowl a few years back…
***Regress to 4 Single KB Snatches per arm if need be b) 4 x Burpee Lateral Hop
On the EVEN Mins x 7 Rounds

ON the LAST Min:

So, there you go!
