Catch Me If You Can! – Kettlebell Workout – Michigan
This is a kettlebell workout for the outdoors.
Or in the very least a kettlebell workout that shouldn’t be done on your wood or tiled floor because if you are like me you might drop the bell once. Or twice.
Regardless, this is a fun kettlebell workout. Not to mention quick kettlebell workout for those day you…well…don’t want to workout but know you probably should. You know those days.
Yeah, this kettlebell workout is for those days.
Anyway a quick word of caution: don’t fight the bell and pay attention. If you feel it slip let it go and get out of the way. The bell always wins. Always.

B. Around the Body (Alternate directions)
Set a timer for 30/30 (A/B) intervals and 8 rounds. Feel free to do more or less but I did 8 minutes and it was just what I needed for the time I had.
Tips: There is point at the top the swing where you feel the kettlebell “float”. This is where you catch it. Also you don’t need to transiotion between moves smoothly. It’s okay to stop the bell after the reach and then start your around the body. It’s also okay to set the bell back on the ground to start your swings after your around the body. You’ll be less likely to bang your knee. Lastly, I noticed near the end I was getting tired and I wasn’t dropping my hips during my squat and instead I was dropping my chest a little. This is easier but it’s also wrong. Be mindful of that.
We filmed this kettlebell workout at Sleeping Dunes National Lakeshore where we climbed the dunes.
It was spectacular.
My moody (now) teenager even enjoyed it. At least for a few minutes.
Well…that’s that. Have you ever dropped a kettlebell during your workout? What do you do when you are having one of those days? Have you done a kettlebell workout this week?
