Kettlebell Circuit Exercise
Working the upper body with weight resistance exercises not only fires up your metabolism (any weight lifting does, for that matter), but opens up your ribs and chest cavity, giving your lungs more room and therefore making you less prone to pulmonary problems.
Three sets of the following exercise with kettlebells, three days a week, will hit all your upper body muscle groups. If you're in a time-crunch, you could even do just three to five sets of these and get a great workout.
Requires one set of kettlebells, at least 15 pounds.
Muscles worked: Entire upper body (chest, biceps, triceps, back).
How to perform The Kettlebell Circuit:
- Grab your kettlebells and get into a push-up position.
- Do 10 push-ups; then, still in push-up position, pull each kettlebell up five times per side.
- Next, return to push-up position and work your shoulders and abs by moving into a plank position. Repeat this five times.
- Finally, get into a dip position and do 10 dips.
