Our 3 Favorite Kettlebell Exercises

For the past few months we've been falling deeper in love with the kettlebell when it comes to keeping things simple workout wise.

Coinciding with biltong, which is simple, pure and effective, we feel the kettlebell offers you the same results.

For anyone interested in increasing their standard body weight routine but don't want to go all out on joining a gym, just pick up one or two kettlebells and do the 3 mentioned exercises until you drop down.

Remember to share your results with us! #biltongbody

Kettlebell Shrugs

There aren't a lot of resources showing how to do a kettlebell shrug, but it's basically the same as using dumbbells. Since we love kettlebells we just use two of them instead. Grab two 50lbs and shrug away. 

Goblet Squat

Love this exercise! Like most kettlebell exercises it uses the whole body. In a normal squat the weight just rests on your shoulders. With this version your upper body is not taking a break at all. It also forces you to keep your (midsection / stomach) tight, which helps with good form.

Kettlebell Swing

The winner. If you only do one kettlebell exercise for the rest of your life, this should be the one. It works out your thighs, hamstrings, abdominals, lower back, lats and shoulders. All the muscles that will quickly make you look bigger. Not to mention the forearm burn from hanging onto that swinging weight. Enjoy.
