Top 10 Kettlebell and Body Weight Exercises

Are you looking for short, effective workouts you can do anywhere?

Do you need a workout that hits all of your major muscle groups, that combines all the elements you need (resistance, cardio, core, flexibility) into one?

If you answered yes to either of the questions above, exercises that utilize a kettlebell and/or your own body weight are your perfect solution.  And the even better news is that you don’t need to spend the time to learn a ton of new exercises to take advantage of these training modalities …

My training philosophy is all about quality over quantity.  You’ll get much more out of mastering a few basic exercises and being able to perform them perfectly than you will out of learning a larger number of moves but mastering none.

Here are the top 10 kettlebell and body weight exercises you need to get short, effective, fat blasting and muscle building workouts anywhere you are:

(For each exercise, I’ve linked out to a more thorough description of how to perform it properly – all links point to articles with pictures and/or video, and some even include sample workouts) 

The Squat

The Lunge

The Kettlebell Swing

The Push-up

The Press

The Row

The Pull-up

The Turkish Get-up

The Plank

The Burpee

Master these basic kettlebell and body weight exercises and you’ll have all you need to blast fat, build muscle and get into great shape anywhere you are.  Next time, I’ll give you more sample workouts you can do using these exercises.
