Are you looking for a new workout regimen to incorporate into your daily fitness routine? Or are you simply bored with the same old kettlebell routine that you’ve been doing for some time now? Kettlebells are one of the best home equipment that you can invest on because they can actually help you tone your entire body. When using the kettlebell, you are engaging large muscle groups which means that you will have an even looking physique.

If you are wondering what other kettlebell exercises to do, here are some for you to try.

Heart pump. Like it was mentioned before, working with kettlebell can target your entire body from your arms, back, core, to your legs. In this exercise, you will need to stand tall with your feet about hip-width apart and your hands holding on the handle of the kettlebell at chest height. While in a squat, pump the kettlebell two to three times then push yourself back up. Repeat this 10 times.

Kettlebell military press. In this workout, you will need to lean forward while pressing the kettlebells that you are holding toward the ceiling. Lower the weights down to your shoulders and press for another 10 to 20 reps. This is more challenging compared to using a bar during your military press because you need to press both arms at the same pace.

Kayak. Kayaking may sound like a good idea during the summer so you can enjoy the waters even more but you can actually incorporate the movements in your kettlebell workout too. First, you need to sit down on the floor with your hands holding the ends of a kettlebell. Raise your legs off the floor while your knees are still bent and lean backwards slightly until your weight is distributed on your glutes. Engage your core as you bring the kettlebell to your left. Do the same to the opposite side. Keep alternating your movements until you complete 10 to 15 reps.

Kettlebell push-up. This classic move can be even more challenging if you throw in some kettlebells into the mix. Grasp the handles of the kettlebells to help lower yourself to the floor. The unstable kettlebells will push you to use more muscles to keep you steady as you do your push-ups. If you are already a pro in doing kettlebell push-ups, flip kettlebells so that the handles will be the ones on the floor. Do your push-ups this way.

Halo. Another kettlebell workout that will not only stregnthen your shoulders and core but increase mobility is the halo. Go into a lunge position with your hands holding on to a kettlebell. While in a lunge, rotate the kettlebell around your head one way. Reverse your movement to complete one rep. Do this 10 to 15 times.
