This Full-Body Workout From the "Kettlebell King" Will Leave You Feeling Sore and Badass
Eric Leija is known as primal.swoledier on Instagram, but around here he's known as the Kettlebell King. He's known for consistently posting kettlebell workouts that target pretty much every muscle in the body, including ones you didn't even know existed. And his emphasis on functional movement and mobility only make his routines all the more useful.
This workout is great for the strength-training junkies out there who are looking for a challenge. The best part is, all you need is one kettlebell to make this workout a reality, so you can either do it at home or at your gym.
"The first three parts of this workout combine a bodyweight movement and a single kettlebell movement that should be performed back to back, and then you rest after each set," Eric explained. "The fourth part of the workout is an explosive and conditioning movement that should be performed with minimal rest in between sets of reps."
Eric suggests using "a weight that you can perform quality reps with." You want it to be a challenge, but you want to be able to get through the whole thing. "Make sure to perform a cooldown after you complete this workout so you can recover strong and work out again tomorrow!" he told POPSUGAR.
As Eric said, there are four circuits of this workout. There are two different exercises in each the first three circuits, and you'll do three rounds of each circuit. The fourth circuit is just one exercise, but you'll do five rounds. It may sound like a lot, but it's totally doable! Make sure you do at least a few minutes of cardio to get your body warmed up before you get started. Have fun with it!
