Updated: Feb 9


Hi Guys! If you're looking for over 20 exercises to do with just one kettlebell, then this post if for you! We also demonstrate 2 bonus conditioning circuits to get the heart rate up. Follow along at home or at the gym.


Choose the sets and reps that allow for proper form. If you have more then one kettle bell you may want to choose a heavier or lighter weight depending on the exercise and reps you want to achieve. Always work within your capacity and remember, your last rep should be just as good as your first !


The first workout follows a Complex format,

Choose 3- 6 exercises

Perform 1-6 reps per exercise When all exercises complete

Rest 60-90 seconds

Repeat for 3-6 sets


The circuit I performed in the video included :

4 Bent over Row + Passes

4 Off-set Lunges each leg

4 Thrusters each side (Squat to press)

4 Mountain Climbers each leg

Rest 60-90 Seconds


The second workout is a circuit training format,

Choose 4-10 Kettlebell or resistance training exercises

Choose 1 or more cardiovascular exercises (i.e. running, skipping,biking,rowing,shadow boxing,jumping jacks etc)

Simply alternate between resistance exercise and Cardiovascular exercises for 30-60 seconds each Rest minimally between exercises

Rest at end for 60-120 seconds Repeat for 2-6 sets


The circuit I performed in the video included:

Goblet Squat 30 seconds Skipping 30 seconds Shoulder to shoulder press 30 seconds Rotational Lunges 30 seconds Skipping 30 seconds Suitcase carry 30 seconds Skipping Rest 60-90 seconds
