This is a great stand alone exercise or can be worked into a circuit or paired with sprints or jumping rope. The sky’s the limit as long as you know how to safely and productively design a training session. Check out my site archives for tons of ideas!
As you get better, experiment with your repetitions. For example, I will often do more swings during the two-handed phase of this workout as the load is easier to swing – 5 left handed, 5 right handed and 10 two handed. There are many variations to try within this concept I have shown you, but I like to keep the rep ranges relatively low and let those multiple rounds add up to work their fitness magic!
The weight of the kettlebell to use will be limited by how much you can handle with a single arm safely with good technique.
Start with a one minute rest between rounds, but adjust up or down depending on your fitness level.
Always do a proper warm up to prepare for intense exercise activity such as the across the body kettlebell swing workout.
