I used to be deceived by kettlebells. I had watched plenty of videos and the participants all made the workouts look hard, but not as difficult as they are if you are involved! Duh. That is usually the case, and even after years of being active and taking fitness classes, I continue to be blown away with workout difficulty.
HIIT training is effective because it is efficient in time, doable for all fitness levels, and can be done with little or no equipment. This routine is great for building cardio endurance and muscle strength, in under 30 minutes. Get a warm up in and then get started and on with your day! You will need a dumbbell or kettlebell for this routine.
Here are the moves:
- Two-Handed Kettlebell Swing: 8 rounds total (20 seconds on, 10 seconds of rest)
