Great Kettlebell Workout Training for Work at Home Moms
In 2019, work from home moms and dads are more pressed for time than ever before. If you're a stay or work at home mom and have limited time to devote to exercise, you should really consider opting for a kettlebell workout routine. The benefits of a kettlebell workout are huge, as you will free yourself from stress, tone your body, boost your metabolism and discover new levels of energy. If that sounds like something you think you would benefit from, keep reading and take a look at the exercises that will get your body in incredible shape.
With this kettlebell workout routine you will not only lose weight, you will also become lean and toned. The swing is performed by standing straight, legs shoulder width apart. Keeping you back straight, lean forward, bend your knees, and get in a position that is similar to a semi squat.
With your arms hanging loose, use both hands to raise the kettlebell over your head, inhaling as you go. You then need to swing the weight down between the legs and towards your back as you exhale. Shoot for 10 sets of 20-50 reps, with a minutes rest between each set.
Your back and butt will get toned using this kettlebell exercise. When performing the deadlift, you need to remember to keep your back straight and use the force of your body, not your arms, to lift the weight. Get into the standard standing position, with the kettlebell centered between your legs on the floor.
Squat over the kettlebell with your knees bent. Your abs need to remain tight and your spine straight. Reach down, take the kettlebell in both hands, and lift it using the force of your entire body, not only your arms.
Your hips and abs should be delivering the bulk of the power. As you raise the weight to mid-chest level, bend your elbows outwards. Lower the weight, bending your knees slightly as you go. Do 25 repetitions before resting the kettlebell back on the floor.
The Lunge Press
This is one of the easiest kettlebell exercises that a woman can do. To start, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hold the sides of the kettlebell handle with both hands in front of your chest. Your elbows should be bent with your palms in. Now lunge forward using your left leg and press the weight up using both hands. Stand back up while you bring the kettlebell back down.
Go through the routine again, this time using the right leg instead of your left. The legs, arms, shoulders, back, abs, and behind will be targeted using this kettlebell exercise. Always keep your back and shoulder blades straight in order to get the full benefit.
Proceed With Caution with a Kettlebell Workout Routine. But Proceed!
If it’s been a while since you’ve exercised, be sure to discuss any physical issues with your doctor or chiropractor before jumping into a new fitness routine. A kettlebell workout can go a long way to help you trim and tone your body, but it IS strenuous exercise. Make sure you’re physically up to the challenge before you begin.
