If you’re like most folks, time is a major factor when it comes to workout frequency and consistency.
One thing I always tell my training clients … and that I subscribe to myself … is that something is ALWAYS better than nothing. Just because you can’t get in a full-blown 45-60 minute training session, doesn’t mean you can’t workout at all. You can get a lot out of a quick 10-15 minute circuit workout, if you know how to set it up. It might not be quite as good as the workout you were planning … but at least you stay on track and keep the ball rolling towards those fitness goals.
I wanted to share a quick kettlebell and body weight workout with you for the next time you’re in this exact situation … this one hits every major muscle group in your body, gets you some strength and conditioning work at the same time, and can be completed in about ten minutes start to finish.
10 Minute Kettlebell Swing + Burpee Smoker
- do ~ 3 mins. of joint mobility drills to warm up, then -
- 7 burpees
- 25 KB swings
- rest ~ 30 seconds, repeat for a total of three sets each
Next time you’re going to miss your scheduled workout because you’re running short on time, give this kettlebell swing and burpee smoker a go … you’ll hit every major muscle group, get some strength and conditioning work at the same time, and keep the ball rolling towards those fitness goals!
Thanks for reading, and talk soon -
