Energize Your Exercise Kettlebell Workout

Have some fun with this energizing kettlebell and bodyweight workout! I encourage you to be grateful for the ability to move, to think of your workout as playtime, and to have fun with your physical training. At the end of the day, if you’re not enjoying the hours you’re putting in to “get in shape”, isn’t that a big waste of time? I don’t think working out needs to be painful, boring, or hard to motivate yourself for. If you find the right modality of movement, physical training can be incredibly fun in and of itself. For me, kettlebell lifting happens to be one of the modalities I really enjoy, and the extra bonus is that kettlebells are an incredibly effective strength and conditioning tool!
