WORKOUT OF THE WEEK
The simplicity of using one kettlebell or weight for this workout belies the intensity of the session. This will highlight your stronger and weaker sides (we all have them) and enable you to work on creating greater balance within your body as a result. I suggest keeping the weight light to begin to get used to the exercises and to focus on great technique. To add more intensity at this level simply complete an additional circuit allowing for minimal rest between exercises and sets. As you become more confident with the exercises, you can gradually increase the load. The Turkish get-up is tricky but worth practising – it’s a killer full body exercise!
2-4 sets depending on time & fitness level; 45 seconds on each exercise, 15 secs to switch to next exercise. 60 second recovery between sets.
2 x kettlebells, one light, one medium weight (8-20 kg)

WOW – KETTLEBELL CIRCUIT
(light weight or no weight. Alternative is to do a half get-up, ie pics 1 & 2 only. This is a complex move requiring a lot of shoulder strength & stability as the arm holding the kettlebell needs to be directly straight above you throughout the sequence. Mastered the get-up? Reverse the moves back down to the floor….)
