Happy Friday, fit friends! Here is another FUN and FAST workout for you to blast some serious calories and build some serious upper-body muscle! The best part is that you don't need tons of fancy equipment or time to fit in a great workout with this Upper-body Kettle Bell Workout!

This week's Free Fitness Friday: Upper-body Kettle Bell Circuit Workout

Upper-body Kettle Bell Workout

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is a light-to-moderate weight Kettle Bell) and can be done in anytime frame that you have (anywhere from 15-30 minutes), but should be done at a fast-pace and with minimal rest. You can even fit this workout in at the end of a workout for an extra calorie burn! Complete all exercises in a row for 1 round, rest for 1 minute, then begin with the first exercise for round 2. Complete as many rounds as you can in the time you have! (Try for 4-6 rounds!)

As always, be sure to warm up before beginning the first round and cool down and stretch when you are finished.

Round 1:

  • 10 Kettle Bell Push-ups (closer hand placement than normal push-ups, may need to perform them on your knees)
  • 15 Kettle Bell Bicep Curl into Shoulder Press
  • 15 Kettle Bell Tricep Overhead Extension
  • 10 Right Arm Kettle Bell Upright Row
  • 10 Left Arm Kettle Bell Upright Row

Check out this short video to see how each exercise is performed and to ensure that you have proper form throughout each exercise!

That's all there is to this short, yet tough workout and your upper-body will be burning (the good kinda burn)!

So what are you waiting for? Grab your Kettle Bell and get your sweat on! And don't forget to have some fun while you're at it!

Have a great workout and a wonderful weekend ahead!
