15-Minute Full-Body Kettlebell Workout

Hi, guys!

Here’s a quick yet high-intensity kettlebell workout that will challenge your entire body in a short amount of time. The Kettlebell Swings will get your heart rate up and engage your muscles from head-to-toe while the Sumo Deadlift High Pulls (SDHP) and Push-Ups will give your upper body a serious workout. Hey, you might just be surprised how much of a workout you’ll get in 15 minutes! Happy sweating!

How to do this workout: After warming up, set a timer for 15 minutes. Start by performing 21 Kettlebell Swings. Once you finish, move immediately to the SDHP. Perform 15 reps and then 9 Push-Ups. After you’ve completed all three exercises, start at the beginning with 21 Kettlebell Swings once again. Continue to repeat the circuit until 15 minutes is up. The goal is to move from one exercise to the next without rest, but listen to your body and take breaks as needed.

  1. Do you have a suggested weight and/or brand of kettlebells to start with? I know it’s highly individual, but for someone of medium fitness level. I’ve used them before in classes/gyms, but it’s been a few years and I don’t remember what weights I used. I’d like to order one to start.

    1. I really like cast iron kettlebells (like these ones: http://rstyle.me/n/b5ie6db5itf) because that’s what we use at CrossFit, but they’re also really durable. I typically use a 35- or 44-pound kettlebell for most workouts, but you could totally start with one in the 15 to 20-pound range and work your way up. You can always go heavier! 🙂

  2. I’ve recently rediscovered my love for strength training courtesy of kettle bells and sandbags. I used to use a squat rack or smith machine but honestly I can’t be bothered anymore! Kettle bells are great as they’re so multipurpose- as you’ve demonstrated!
