15 Min Full Body Kettlebell Workout at Home

15 Min Full Body Kettlebell Workout at Home is an excellent little add on total body kettlebell workout. In fact, that is how I used it today. I am doing Caroline Girvin‘s Kickass Kettlebell Series, so I used this as a finisher. In fact, the set up (supersets) is very similar to the workout I had just completed: Day 4 Kettlebell Cardio, though the interval times are different. In this workout each strength exercise is superset with a kettlebell swing. The kettlebell swing is your cardio move so this is a cardio + strength workout. Each exercise is done for 30 seconds; since you are super-setting you do one minute of work (one strength exercise + a kettlebell swing) then you get 30 seconds of rest. Because of the superset format I used the same kettlebell for the swing that I did for the strength exercise, except for #13 & 4 below; 35 pounds is too heavy for a kettlebell swing, for me at least, so I quickly swapped to a lighter kettlebell for the swing. This really is an excellent finisher workout to add onto the end of any kettlebell workout. This is one of Caroline’s older workouts (though none of her workouts are “old”) and she does not have the little bar at the bottom of the screen, counting down the workout time as a percentage. I missed that a lot! But you do get a notification when you hit the halfway mark.

15 Min Full Body Kettlebell Workout at Home is 17:33 minutes; 1 minute intro, no warm up and 1:30 minute stretch. Equipment: kettlebell(s) and a fitness mat. Optional chair or bench.
