As everyone is beginning their New Year’s resolutions to be healthier – admit it, you made that one, too! – and Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching – only 25 days away (eep!) – I thought that there would be no better time than now to share my Kiss My @$$ Kettlebell Workout! This one has been tested by fitness fanatics and newbies alike, and everyone said that they could feel it work! I’ve personally done it three times over the last week or so and my jeans are definitely thanking me.
This workout generally takes between 15 and 20 minutes, depending on the weights that you use. I clocked it at 13:45 with a 15lb kettlebell, and just around 20 minutes with a 26+ lb kettlebell. Not only is this an amazing workout for your gluteus maximus (believe me, you’ll be feeling it on the goblet squats), but by moving from exercise to exercise it has a surprising cardio element. If you do not have a kettlebell, you can accomplish the same movements with one or two dumbbells, which is what a few of my friends opted to do, although I highly recommend investing in a kettlebell since they are such a versatile gym item to have on-hand.
Unsure about what these movements look like? Here are some helpful YouTube videos that can give you an idea: Single Leg Deadlifts; Goblet Squats; Reverse Lunges (you can either hold the kettlebell in the clean position as in the video or straight down on the same side as the leg lunging backwards; the second option is easier for doing alternating lunges, and was the option I chose); Calf Raises (you can either hold the kettlebell in the same position as the goblet squat or with your arms straight down in front of you); KB Swings.
Hope you enjoy the workout!
