Workout Description

A kettlebell is the ideal piece of exercise gear for abs and core conditioning.

Without a doubt, kettlebells offer a training method that is perfect for compound motions including swings, squats, presses, and cleans.

You only need one kettlebell to complete this abs and core kettlebell exercise.

The exercises target the main abdominal and back muscular groups with movements carried out in all three planes. For a thorough core workout, the moves can be performed while standing, kneeling, lying down, or performing push-ups.

The exercise is created to get your core coordinated, strong, and resilient as well as get you ready for more difficult exercises in upcoming workouts.

Workout Instructions:

One medium-weight kettlebell is needed for this exercise. Men should use a 10-12 kilogramme (22-26 lbs) kettlebell, while ladies should use a 6-8 kg (14-18 lbs) kettlebell.

For each exercise in a circuit, perform 10 reps on each side. At the conclusion of each circuit, take a 45–60 second break. Make four complete circuits. Increase your weight if you can easily finish more than four circuits of these exercises.
