Kettlebell Windmills + Favorite Fitness Reads!

In continuation with last weeks tutorial on the 1/2 kneeling windmill, this week we progress to the actual windmill.  Now that you have broken down what is going on in the lower body + the upper body in a half kneeling position, we can easily take this exercise to standing!

Using your newly developed windmill skillz,  grab a #kettlebell and get your #ASS outside!

Set your timer for :30 work and :30 rest.
Perform the following circuit for 4-5 rounds!

1.Pushup
2. Squat + bicep curl
3. Windmill Left
4. Windmill Right
5. Figure 8 to Hold

Seeing as I am in a giving mood…

Here is one of my favorite ways to use kettlebells in a simple DOUBLE KETTLEBELL complex:

5 Long Cycle Cleans, 5 Strict Presses, 5 Front Squats

Using an equal work to rest ratio, repeat for AS MANY ROUDS AS POSSIBLE in 15 minutes!
