One piece of equipment I love to have around the house is a kettlebell. There are so many exercises that incorporate the entire body, and swinging one around gets your heart pumping, too. Here are a few exercises I like to get you started!1) Kettle Swings- In a squat position, swing the kettlebell between your legs up to shoulder height. You can use both arms, or do single arm swings. Remember to keep that core engaged to protect your back! Try 3 or 4 sets of 15-20.
2) Goblet Squats- Hold kettlebell close to your chest and get into the deepest squat you can keeping proper form, remembering to keep knees behind your toes. Try 3 or 4 sets of 15.
3) Single leg deadlift row- Holding a straight leg in single leg deadlift position, row kettle bell, leading with the elbow and slowly return to start. Focus on keeping balance and hold the leg in the balancing position for the duration of the exercise. Try 2 sets of 15 on each side.
4) Around the world- Standing in a neutral position, take kettlebell around your midsection, pulling in your abdominals. Try 2 sets of 25 in each direction.
