Time to end off the week STRONG.

Time to EARN IT.

Today my crew over at The Forged Athlete Gym cranked out some Oly lifting plus a bunch of bodyweight and kettlebell work.

We then finished out the session with the KB / BW Ladder I did from yesterday’s Throwdown that my buddy Forest Vance sent me.

People were LOVIN’ it and definitely EARNED their results today.

There’s NO “easy” day 😉

Anyways, to end off the week strong and since we’ve been talking kettlebell training all this week, I figured I’d share my TOP 5 KB workouts from over the past few years.

There’s been a TON so it was tough to pick out the top 5.

My TOP 5 Kettlebell workouts.

In no particular order we start off at #1 which is a KB Complex we cranked out in my gym a few months back.This was deceptively HARD.

Here’s how it went down…5 Rounds Every 90 Secs Perform…

7 x Double KB Sumo Deads
5 x Double KB Push Press
3 x Double KB Thruster
***Rest the remaining amount of time then repeat

#2 KB Workout

One of the things I love most about KB’s is how you can easily get outside and train with them.

My next top training session had to be one from way back in 2010 when I cranked it out on the turf…

Another HUGE benefit that KB’s bring to the table is how you can pack em’ up and bring em’ with you to pretty much anywhere you go.
I remember a few years back when I traveled down to Austin, TX for a seminar I attended at a buddy’s gym.
The drive from Omaha to ATX was 26 hours (PUKE!).
I made the hellish drive a bit better with a few stops to get outside and move around a little bit.

Of course, I brought my kettlebell 😉

I cranked out 4 different short workouts on that trip, 2 on the way down and then 2 on the way back up and all of them were nasty.

My favorite out of the 4 was this one…

#3 TOP Kettlebell Workout…

This was the first one I hit after about 5 hours on the road at a rest stop.

It felt great to get out of that damn car and open up the body a bit!   

The #4 TOP Kettlebell workout was a nasty combination of double unders plus whole slew of single arm KB movements.

I loved this one…

[embedplusvideo height=”309″ width=”500″ editlink=”” standard=”″ vars=”ytid=gB15vyLZsls&width=500&height=309&start=&stop=&rs=w&hd=0&autoplay=0&react=1&chapters=&notes=” id=”ep4285″ /]

And to end things out at #5, this kettlebell infused workout I did right before the Superbowl this last year…

The breakdown on that one went like this…E.M.O.T.M. x 15 Min (length of one quarter in football)
On the ODD Mins x 7 Rounds:
a) 8 x Double KB Snatches
b) 4 x Burpee Lateral Hop

On the EVEN Mins x 7 Rounds:
a) 6 x KB Thrusters
b) 3 x Sit Outs / Side

ON the LAST Min:
a) AMRAP of Double KB Squat Clean Press (Just NASTY)

So, there you go!

My TOP 5 kettlebell workouts from the past few years.

Now, if you haven’t hit some of those up yet, feel free to steal them and crank em’ out.

Just make sure to let me know how you do and Go 110% H.A.M. 😉

PS -If you’re someone who LOVES to train with Kettlebells, something you might want to take a peek at is my “Daily KB RX”

Just think…

If every single day you were sent a quick, 10 minute or less, “daily dose of iron” kettlebell / bodyweight infused kickass training routine…

That’ exactly what the daily KB RX is all about.
