Well here are some great moves that you can do with kettlebells that will help you reach that goal. All done with heavy double kettlebells.

The 5 Kettlebell Moves

2. Kettlebell renegade rows - works the back pulling muscles as well as core stability (think doing a usual plank but with more bite!)



3. Kettlebell front squats - great for building strong legs



4. Kettlell Turkish Get-Ups - perfect for whole body strength and core activation

Here's how we do the kettlebell drills:

Kettlebell Superhero Complex (Kettlebell Drill No. 3)

Set the timer for 20 minutes, and do each move EMOM style (every minute on the minute). This ensures that you are constantly moving and not take too much rest in between.

1. Floor press x10

2. Renegade rows x10

3. Front squat x 10 (on 1-2-3 count, ie squat down, hold for 2 seconds then come back up)

4. Turkish Get-Ups x1 each side

5. Snatches x 6

You will end up doing four rounds.

As a finisher, you can do kettlebell farmer holds for one minute to build a powerful superhero grip. Basically you pick two heavy kettlebells on each hand and hold them for one minute.

Go work out!
