You Can Replace Intervals With Kettlebells
Today’s workout was quick and awesome.
Split Lunge Jumps – 4 sets of 6 reps per side
Long Intervals – Just 2 long (90 second runs)
I have these new kick-butt adidas running shoes…liking them a lot. And I did all of this in the park beside my house.
If you’ve ever wondered what you can do in place of intervals – because you don’t have a treadmill or bike at home – then you’ll love this fat burning workout replacement.
The perfect alternative is the simple Kettlebell.
Here are just a few exercises you can use to replace intervals:
- 2-hand kettlebell swings
- KB Front Squat
- 1-hand kettlebell swings
- Kettlebell snatches
(NOTE: Of course, all exercises must be done with good form, and you should take a few sessions to ease your way into these movements.)
But kettlebells are perfect to burn fat and transform your body WITHOUT using traditional intervals – such as sprinting, biking, ellipticals, or treadmills.
Plus, you can store a kettlebell in even the tiniest of closets, and you don’t need to devote an entire room in your house – or apartment – to cumbersome workout machines.
I’ve lived in 460 square foot apartments and still been able to do full kettlebell workouts.
Yep, until just last February I was living in a 460 square foot apartment in downtown Toronto – total bachelor pad. Nothing like having your stove, bed, desk, and TV all in one room.====>
But there was still enough room for snatches, swings, and squats.
Plus, kettlebells are perfect for the backyard. I’ll be doing a kettlebell
workout this weekend at my mom’s house in the backyard. I keep two
kettlebells there (53 and 70 pounds) and two here in the city (35 and 53 pounds).
That allows me to never miss a day of exercise, no matter what the weather – even when the Canadian roads are covered in a foot of snow and ice from a blizzard.
Kettlebells. It doesn’t get much better than that for a fast fat burning workout.
