Kettlebell 'til you Drop – Total Body Kettlebell Workout Video
These kettlebell exercises thoroughly work a wide variety of muscle groups, and burn a great deal of calories while doing so. For this routine you will ideally have several different weights of kettlebells to choose from, in order to cater to the varying strengths of each muscle group.
Remember, if you don’t have access to kettlebells, you can always use a dumbbell instead. Some of the exercises may be a bit more awkward with a dumbbell, but small adjustments to grip can make for a suitable alternative.
For this video we have put together an entire comprehensive routine that you can do from start to finish and count as your entire workout. It is lengthy (40 minutes) and it also includes your warm up and cool down. If you have a lot of energy left when you are done with this one, you could always tack on a bit of extra cardio in order to really wear yourself out and burn some extra calories too.

Form is important. If at any time during this routine you feel like you are getting tired enough that your form is starting to suffer, hit pause and grab a drink of water – take an extra long break if you need to before jumping right back into the routine. It’s better to be able to go at it full force and with good form than to limp your way through the workout with poor form, putting yourself at a higher risk for injury.
