Hi, guys! Happy Monday! #mondaymotivation
My favorite kind of workouts are ones that are quick and dirty, which means they’re high-intensity and efficient. I make the most of my time and finish the workout feeling like I really challenged myself. When I’m short on time, these types of workouts are definitely my go-to for a heart-pumping, full-body sweat session.
That said, here are TWO high-intensity (and FUN!) kettlebell workouts (one of which incorporates running) that can be done in under 25 minutes or less. And, if you have more time, you can totally tackle them both in 45 minutes. Either way, you’ll get an awesome full-body workout in a short amount of time. Enjoy!
25-MINUTE KETTLEBELL + RUNNING WORKOUT
Set a timer for 25 minutes and then complete as many rounds as possible of the following exercises:
- 30 Kettlebell Swings (I did American style, but Russian works too)
- 20 Single-Arm Kettlebell Rows (10 each arm)
- 400 Meter Run
OUTFIT DETAILS: Mara Hoffman Floral Print Crop Top (blue multi; $29.99)
Crop tops are so fun for summer and super sweaty workouts. This one from Mara Hoffman is supportive in all the right places and stays put, but keeps me cool during my workouts at the same time. It’s perfect for running!
20-MINUTE FULL-BODY KETTLEBELL WORKOUT
Set a timer for 20 minutes and then complete as many rounds as possible of the following exercises:
- 20 Kettlebell Swings
- 20 Push-Ups (not single-arm, unless you want to try – my photographer and I were just having some fun!)
- 40 Walking Lunges (total – 20 each leg)
OUTFIT DETAILS: Body Language Sportswear Muscle Twist Top (heather grey/black; $35)
How fun is this tank top!? I’m obsessed with the muscle tank style, which is why I selected it for myself, and, of course, I absolutely love the open, twisted back. It definitely keeps you cool while providing some lightweight coverage. I actually think this tank would transition well between my workouts and everyday life. Gym to happy hour? Yes, please!
Happy sweating, friends!
