Ok, this one is seriously awesome.  In fact, I loved this workout so much that it will definitely become a regular in my routine each week.

One, it utilizes kettlebells which are pretty much my favorite training tool right now.

Two, it challenges the left and right sides separately which is always a nice change of pace.

Three, it kept my heart rate up, made me sweat and accomplished a lot in a short period of time.

And lastly, because every section on has 5 reps to it, you can go a little heavier and focus on each rep individually!

Here is the basic lay out:

And here is a glimpse into what this actually looks like when it’s connected together…..(please excuse the kettlebell flopping over in the first exercise, I’m still a work in progress on those!)

In between each full round of right and left, I did some med ball long tosses and then chased it down for a total of 10 passes across the room.  This was a great way to get the heart rate up a little more and give my hands a break from gripping the kettlebell.  It ended up taking about 20 minutes to complete the entire workout.

Give this one a try this week when you’re pressed for time, you can always change up the number of reps and rounds to fit your schedule.

Cheers!
