Meltdown Kettlebell – Fat Loss Training
Kettlebells are a great tool for a fat loss workout. You don’t need much space to use a kettlebell, and it can be used for strength and interval training in a fat burning workout.
Every Saturday afternoon when I visit my parents, I drag out the 35, the 53, and the 70 pound kettlebells I have stashed away, and spend the afternoon in the backyard burning body fat.
But I’m not a Kettlebell expert by any means…
So that’s why I interviewed Troy Anderson, author of the Kettlebell Meltdown Fat Loss Program to get a Sample fat burning Kettlebell Workout for you.
CB: Troy, what does a fat burning Kettlebell workout look like for your clients?
I “front load” the first part of the workout with strength work and then move into circuit work. I have found this to be very effective and call this my Big Iron Burn Method.
It might be easier to understand if I just script out a training day so let’s give it a shot.
Here’s what a beginning week might like for an intermediate client.
Big Iron Portion
Double Kettlebell Front Squats 4 x 5
Kettlebell Snatches Ladders 3-5 x 1,2,3
Burn Circuit – 3 cycles
Turkish Get-ups – 2 reps per side
Renegade Push-Hold + Push-up – 30 sec + 5 reps
Blast Strap Body Row – 12
2 Hand KB Swing – 20
This type of pairing has made for real high quality and high return training sessions for my clients.
When you combine that strength component with the burn circuit, we can knock through a total body workout with very little additional equipment in a short period of time, some times less than 45 minutes, it depends on how ‘winded’ my client get.
I really think the KB is a great all around fitness tool, especially for those that training at home, and are looking for top fat loss results.
Had a great Kettlebell workout today,
