hey everyone it’s your personal trainer coach Kozak and I’m Claudia and this is a kettlebell workout now I’m going to be doing the intermediate through Advanced moves today and follow along with me for all of those modifiers we’re going to be using a couple different weights one lighter one heavier to mix it up for different exercises but if you only have the one that’s totally okay also if you don’t even have a kettlebell and you just have a dumbbell all these moves can actually be modified to just use with the dumbbell so no excuses you can follow along today absolutely and if you want to it’s not a requirement but if you want to warm up before this workout just to get your muscles nice and warm then go ahead and click right up here for our five-minute warm-up otherwise let’s get this thing started we’re going to work our head to toe today now we’re not going to count any reps so it’s just going to be about getting as many reps in as we can in the allotted time period Claudia is going to start with a one-arm high pole where I’m going to start with a one-arm clean now I’m going to put my weight back to my hips a little bend in my knees we’re both can explode our elbow up driving our hips forward only difference is I’m gonna let that kettlebell flip up and I’m gonna scoop underneath it where Claudia is just driving that elbow straight up this is definitely a more complex move than it looks so if you can’t pull this one off without beating up your wrists and without flopping it over then just go ahead and knock out that high pull it’ll honestly work the same muscles making sure to breathe we’re going to knock out reps on both sides equally here drive in those hips forward three two one let’s switch sides good so hips go back little bend in the knee drive those hips forward big posture pull up on that elbow nice keep it up I guess another rule of thumb with that whenever you’re using kettlebells for this type of movement it’s just to keep the kettlebells close to your body that’s possible very true you don’t want it flopping out here yeah cuz then you lose power you lose control nice keep it up not much more on this first one three two one and good okay what’s going to the ground for the next one we’re going to do a close grip pushup I’m going to do it from up top claudi’s gonna go ahead and do it from her knees butt so I’m up top in that high plank position I have both hands on the kettlebell I’m gonna let my elbows come in underneath my body and back up definitely a challenging move even from your knees and if you want to do the this modified versions a little bit too hard for you you want to show them that SEC at one claudius so go ahead and put your cuddle Bell and just do a regular push-up from your knees so just one hand on my head Oh Bell yep either way you’re keeping your core tight and you’ll just switch halfway back straight and breathe stay balanced doesn’t works your stability along the way as well good you got it let’s go five four three two one notch alright we’re up go and grab that Dumbo arms are kettlebell at freudian or dumbbell whatever whatever you use it I’m going to do a goblet jump squat or goblet squat so it’s in front of you elbows are in weights back in your hips anyway they’re doing a jump squat or just go ahead and stand up either way once you get that weight back in your hips on every single repetition your head chest up breathe big power keep your weight balanced and your heels and in your hips good good good you got it keep that core straight back tight nice focus on your form guys on this one and five four three two one good alright next we’re moving on to either a one-arm row or a ballistic row so I’m going to actually switch hands on every rep both ways were bent over on a 45 pulling back on that elbow where Claudia is just going to pull the one arm at a time without doing the ballistic switch then we’ll just switch halfway through guys where I’m switching every single one stay focused feel that elbow pulling back like there’s a string pulling back from that elbow anytime you’re doing a row you don’t want to pull back from the hands and go ahead and switch Claudia you want to pull back from those elbows good breathe core stays tight easy I’m concentrating on this one it’s true draw that navel into your spine guys you got it good keep it up how many can you get and there’s a lot of time frame awesome compound movement for sure we my legs are burn on this one and five four three two one all right we’re gonna put that kettlebell up top in the rack position by your chin elbows up you’re a stationary lunge plus press or run fry squat to the press so I’m dropping I’m stepping out to both knees drop to a 90-degree angle and straight up overhead for Claudia’s doing a squat with both legs she’s using that energy from her legs to drive that kettlebell up overhead nice whoa we’re gonna switch sides here in five four three two one switch it up Oh gang opposite side or not these are brutal these are all total body movements all compounds oi for getting a lot of work in in a short period of time today try your best to press that arm straight up so your bicep is by your ear so what you’re looking for I’m straight overhead maintaining a neutral grip nice palm facing in good keep it up let’s go for five four three two one and done nice all right we’re going to the floor for the next one moving into a Russian twist so on the ground leaning back on a 45 degree angle grab my kettlebell both hands I might have my feet up for Claudia is going to keep her feet on the ground but either way both of us ralina back on this 45 it’s the most important part of this movement breathe that core tight if you want you can even get a little bicycle kick going if you want to step it up the more advanced version I’m cool I’ll stick with this one if you’re feeling like this is too easy because you’re too far up gotta lean back on that 45 you get the full effect lean back you can do it let’s go good breathe nice keep it up let’s just go 10 more seconds on this one that’s it just 10 seconds almost there five four three two one good oh yeah we’re staying down the ground actually oh we’re doing high so hip hop plus press both doing the same move so really your modifiers just how much weight you use hips are up driving off your heels back is straight kettlebells and back your arm press up and you’re pressing to the center so elbow goes out to your side and then go ahead and press that kettlebell straight up so it’s in the center mass line with your sternum keep those hips up really want to draw a straight line from your knees to your back good keep going keep it up all these movements today are super efficient hitting so many muscles with each and every one fitting our hamstrings or glutes lower back abs triceps chest shoulders on this one switch opposite arm and back up nice keep it up guys keep that pace up that pace up

taking a kettlebell with you I’m going to do a reverse lunge at plus over the shoulder so start with the feet shoulder-width apart I’m stepping back over the shoulder and back up Claudia is just going to do from a split stance position so she’s not popping up every time stationary good that goes over your shoulder as you go down so I’m dropping down it’s going over my shoulder at the same time whew

keep a little bend in that elbow don’t lot thought your arm nice keep it up few more on this side you’re not imagining it you just did some rows a second ago and five four three two one switching sides right into it no rest let’s go breathe anytime you’re in a plank position I know I’ve said a million times but it’s like you can’t be reminded enough have to focus on your breathing because otherwise you get down here and just hold your breath and man does that mess you up good keep it up guys one into the next it’s great for stabilization so hard to keep these shoulders square in this movement it’s true it is almost there let’s go with five four three two one now what’s our next time I have no oh yes how how could I have forgotten sumo deadlift plus either high pull or upright row by row feet or Y toes are pointed out picking up from those hips loo elbows come high now I’m gonna explode onto the balls of my feet where Claudia’s gonna do it a little more control she’s gonna bring those elbows up yes I act like someone is just pulling those elbows by string guys every time pushing that butt back pushing your hips back on the way down you’re really gonna feel this in your glutes just squeeze them right at the top make sure you’re not coming forward on to your toes down here at the bottom but instead you’re on your heels good big power one to the next good job keep it up guys keep it up breathe and move almost there go 10 more seconds on this one how many can you get last ten seconds and five four three two-one-zero all right we’re staying on your feet for the next

tricep extension extend back up and reverse it down opposite direction so it’s one two three four five six so six parts one no modification here just three dropping the weight if you need to he’s actually just go lighter if you need to good those knees nice and soft and breathe one at a time focus on each individual part bending at those elbows pressing with the shoulders core stays tight not using your legs on this one bill so don’t let your legs help you out on that press no no cheating none of that not today cheating right now come on guys all upper body good whew starting to feel it

time for your legs we’re going I’m gonna go side lunge and Claudia’s going to go lateral squat so stepping over this leg stays straight and back up stepping out this leg stays straight where Claudia she’s just stepping out to its shoulder-width stance and dropping straight down with their hips doing a straight up no both of my hands on this kettlebell drop in a straight down in the middle either one that hip is drawn back and then you bend at the knee hip goes first then the knee whew you got it if your legs aren’t already on fire I know it’s a killer one that’s how we were all around here

one round done we have one more to go that’s halfway through that’s the good news but now we’re a little more familiar with the movements that means we got to go a little faster it’s only 20 second break in total so we’re halfway done already if you get a water now’s the time make it fast make it count we’re getting right back into the either those one-arm cleans or the one-arm high pole you decide which one is right for you today side which movements keep moving here we go in three two one hips are back elbow high drive up good make sure to breathe we’re just going to keep going today I want you to think about yourself as a machine you could just do this all day long nothing could get in your way every rap is good focused form keep it going you got it nothing’s gonna get in your way focus on that form guys drive those hips forward using those hips you’re not curling at your back but you’re driving your hips forward and switch opposite side nice work I won’t keep it up said if you’re doing this clean make sure you’re not flopping it over but instead bring it to the side and punching under and through good not one hour I pull just concentrate on that elbow and pull back on
