Workout Wednesday - HIIT Kettlebell Workout Video

Happy Workout Wednesday!

It's a pretty gross rainy day here in Austin, so I am excited to focus on something fun and exciting instead of dreary! For today's workout Wednesday, I combined 4 of my favorite kettlebell exercises into one butt kicking 20 minute workout! These 4 exercises are so effective because they all work multiple body parts at the same time which gives you maximum results in minimal time. You will notice I get winded just demonstrating the exercises during the video. They are that good! :) Here's a break down of the workout and what body part each exercise is working. I'm just going to list the major muscles worked; however, most of these work many more stabalizer muscles as well.

HIIT Kettlebell Workout:

  1. Kettlebell Swing - glutes, hamstrings, inner thighs, back, & shoulders
  2. Clean & Press - glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, inner thighs, shoulders, triceps, & biceps
  3. Figure 8 - glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, inner thighs, biceps, core, & shoulders
  4. Goblet Squat With Knee Lift - quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, inner thighs, biceps, & core
Perform 12 reps of each exercise moving as quickly as you can from one exercise the the next with minimal rest. When you reach muscle fatigue, rest until you have recovered enough to begin again. Keep repeating the round for 20 minutes and get ready to feel the burn!



Let me know if you give it a try! I hope you have a great Workout Wednesday. If you are looking for more great workouts for Workout Wednesday, check out Fearlessly Fierce! Alison has some awesome workouts on her workout page for your sweating pleasure.

  3. I am starting to like KBs more and more. This looks like an awesome workout. My trainer also believes in working multiple body parts at the same time. #wowlinkup
