By this time, you should be familiar with all the basic moves we will be doing. If you are not familiar with any of the movements in this workout, ask a coach.
We always recommended you warm-up prior to strenuous exercise. Before you begin this workout, you should perform some dynamic stretching, and/or 5 to 10 minutes of light cardio.
You only need one kettlebell for this workout. Select a weight that is challenging.
After you complete a warm-up, grab your equipment and start your workout. Rest as needed.
Begin this workout with the racked reverse lunge. Perform 3 sets of 10 reps on each side. Rest as needed between sets. Use a weight that is challenging but you can maintain good form throughout.
The next exercise is the racked box step-up. Again performing 3 sets of 10 reps on each side. Rest as needed.
Now your will combine the first two exercises and perform racked reverse lunge to a box step-up. You will do 3 sets of 10 reps on each side. Things are getting a little harder now so rest as needed and make sure you are using good form.
Next, we are adding single arm overhead press. Perform 3 set of 10 reps on each side. Once again. Choose a weight that is challenging, rest as needed.
Finally, we are combining the reverse lunge, box step-up and overhead press into one complex exercise for 3 sets of 10 reps on each side. Start with the reverse lunge, go directly to the box step-up pressing the kettlebell overhead as you rise onto the box. Make sure the weight you choose is one that you can safely maintain good form through all movements.
