Kettle Bells is one of the greatest fitness equipments out there and I am a big fan of the endless amount of great work outs you can do with them. However; being aware of the kettle bell weight you select it’s extremely important to avoid major injuries and of course, focusing on doing the exercise correctly. In today’s work out I will be bringing you an upper and lower body routine with kettle bells that will be targeting all major areas of your body such as: Legs, Gluteus, Biceps and Shoulders. This is a muscle strength routine that will help you build stamina and improve your cardiovascular endurance. It’s not easy but a great routine that will take your body to the next level if you aren’t feeling comfortable with this work out just yet, you can tailor this by doing it with dumbbells or resistance bands if you are a beginner.

UpperLower

About the work out & key advice for maximum results:

  • Before perfoming this routine – be sure to warm up your entire body. It’s an overall upper and lover body routine that requires you to be warm and stretched out, not stretching or warming up for this exercise will cause you to be in risk of injuries.
  • This type of routine is not a super set style – which means you will perform one exercise – rest 30 seconds in between and continue to do the rest of the exercise (Lower body first, upper body second).
  • The primary muscle being targeted when doing the lower body portion of this work out which is single leg walking lunges are your hamstrings and secondary muscle being targeted are your gluteus.
  • The primary muscle being targeted when doing the upper body portion of this work out are your biceps and secondary muscle are your shoulders.
  • Make sure you keep your core engage throughout every rep you do and throughout every exercise while doing lower and upper body work – Keeping your core engaged at all times will help you stay balanced and most of all – focusing on strengthening your core.

Reps & Sets per exercise & Fitness Level:

  • Beginner Routine: If you are a beginner and would like to try this exercise – Make sure you select a kettle bell that isn’t too heavy, pick the right weight that you can do without risking form and being in risk of injuries. Focus on doing 10 reps for Walking Lunges, 10 reps for bicep curls & 10 reps for shoulder pressing. Remember you can rest 60 seconds in between exercises until you are clear to do the next routine, the last two routines of the upper body are steady single leg lunge, so you will be taking a step forward and performing the curl – for the shoulder presses it will be the same approach, single leg lunge and shoulder press. The different on the upper body and not doing a walking lunge it’s that will be targeting most of your gluteus and calves.
  • Intermediate Routine: Pick the right weight that you can do without risking form and being in risk of injuries not heavy, not light but moderate weight. Focus on doing 20 reps for Walking Lunges, 20 reps for bicep curls & 20 reps for shoulder pressing. Remember you can rest 40 seconds in between exercises until you are clear to do the next routine, the last two routines of the upper body are steady single leg lunge, so you will be taking a step forward and performing the curl (Back To Back Lounge, up down – up down) – for the shoulder presses it will be the same approach, single leg lunge and shoulder press. The different on the upper body and not doing a walking lunge it’s that will be targeting most of your gluteus and calves.
  • Advanced Routine: This type of routine isn’t a muscle growth routine but geared towards strength and endurancepick the right weight that you can do without risking form and being in risk of injuries yet a challenging weight to keep you in the game but if you look at the rep range selecting a weight that you will be able to do for all the sets is the main aspect to get the most out of this advanced routine. Focus on doing 25 reps for Walking Lunges, 25 reps for bicep curls & 25 reps for shoulder pressing. Remember you can rest 30 seconds in between exercises until you are clear to do the next routine, the last two routines of the upper body are steady single leg lunge, so you will be taking a step forward and performing the curl (Back To Back Lounge, up down – up down – up down 3 total) – for the shoulder presses it will be the same approach, single leg lunge and shoulder press. The different on the upper body and not doing a walking lunge it’s that will be targeting most of your gluteus and calves.

Biceps & Forearms work – Superset style.

Biceps & Forearms work – Superset style. 

Are you short on time and willing to make the most of your time in the gym when training arms? Well you’re in the right place. Today, I will be sharing with you one of my favorite arm routines that will help you maximize not only your results but make the most out of the time you’ve got at the time. Supersets work great because you are doing more than one exercise at once shortly after finishing one, it also helps you improve your overall cardiovascular endurance and strength, so if you haven’t tried this method of training before – I highly recommend you do so.

BicepsIf you are in the quest of muscle building this is the work out for you and of course, it works just as great if you are on a maintaining phase which means muscle endurance – but I will get into that shortly and the necessary changes you have to make in order to manipulate this work out according to your goal. Muscle building phase of this work out will challenge you to lift heavy weight with limited reps, remember do not sacrifice form to lift heavy and be in risk of injuries but do lift a weight that will challenge you while keeping sound and clean form and if you cannot do it, don’t be afraid to drop the weight because as you will get stronger you will be able to achieve the weight you’re trying to lift. I will discuss the rep ranges on the breakdown of the training method down below.

For those focusing on muscle endurance, this will be a different approach than those willing to gain muscle mass. Muscle strength falls into the category of lifting for higher reps and with a limited number of sets. What do I mean by higher rep range? This method will help you gain & keep solid strength while also focusing on overall cardiovascular endurance, taking your heart rate to another level and improving your overall stamina. The rep range may vary for some, but normally 15-20 with a max of 25 reps is ok for each exercise. The weight management doesn’t have to be very heavy or very light, just a weight that will keep you challenged but a weight that you’re able to achieve for the desire reps you’re willing to do without sacrificing form.

Workout advice & techniques.

  • You will be performing for the first exercise the overhand grip for the forearms, keeping the arms tucked in to your side without flaring them out – this will help you target the primary muscle which is your forearms and secondary muscle being your biceps.
  • Once finished with the forearms exercise, proceed to do the following exercise which is the regular and well known Bicep Curls – again make sure to keep your elbows tucked in and don’t flare them out, when flaring the elbows you won’t be able to target the primary muscle and will sacrifice form and most of all, being in risk of injuries.
  • Make sure to keep your core tight throughout every set and reps you do. Keeping your core engaged at all times will help you activate your core and most of all – keep you balanced throughout every rep.
  • You can perform this exercise with either dumbbells or with machine with cables like shown on the photo – Either way you will be able to get the same benefits of the work out. Dumbbells are more challenging and draining because they aren’t attached like cables are and if you want the extra challenge – I highly recommend it, I’ve done both and it works great.

Reps & Sets depending your fitness goal:

  • Muscle Strength: 10-12 reps | Sets of: 5 | 1 Minute Rest.
  • Muscle Endurance: 15-20 max 25 reps | Sets of: 4 | 60 Second Rest.
  • Evaluate what are you trying to achieve before performing the exercise, if you are unsure of your goal – doing either of the work out methods provided won’t hurt you – If you keep your body guessing with new and effective routines you will have better chances of reaching your goal and the body of your dreams.
