Mobility and Kettlebell Circuit

Workout of the Week

For our workout of the week, we have a workout of 2 circuits; a Mobility circuit and a Kettlebell circuit. This workout is good if you have limited equipment available, it requires just one Kettlebell. I know personally, I do not feel like I am moving enough being under the stay at home order so I feel the mobility circuit is a big help in keeping things loose, especially my hips.

How to Perform the Mobility and Kettlebell Circuits

Prepare

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.

 

The Workout

There is no time element to this workout.

For the Mobility Circuit the goal is slow controlled, fluid movement with a good stretch. Take your time with this circuit.

For the Kettlebell Circuit, again there is no time element. Concentrate on form and control. The weight that you use for this circuit should be a little heavier, but not so heavy that you are sacrificing form.

Make sure to challenge yourself!

Rotate to one side, point your knees to that side, turn your upper body to that side, and lean toward your knee to get a good deep stretch. Return to the middle then rotate and repeat to the other side.  Complete 5 reps on each side.
