Heavy Metal Cardio – 2 Kettlebell Drills to Get You Cardiovascular Horsepower!
In order to get what I like to call cardiovascular horsepower you need a moderately heavy to heavy kettlebell. I am very experienced with kettlebell training and tend to float between using a 24kg and 32kg kettlebell for the following drills. Tune in and add the following 2 drills to your conditioning program in order to achieve mind-blowing strength and conditioning!
1. The 100 Rep Snatch Challenge: This is a sick conditioning drill that is sure to test your will! If you haven’t performed a significant amount of overhead kettlebell snatches then you are in for a rude awakening with this little challenge. The key here is to start with a moderately heavy bell for your personal ability. Next, the rules are that you have to be able to perform 100 total snatches in 6 minutes! This is a fairly challenging drill to overcome and takes significant practice. However, the cardiovascular benefits are off the charts! Give it a shot. Make sure that your technique is sound and that you are 100% confident in your ability before attempting this drill.
2. Swinging For 3 Minutes: For this drill you will also need a bit of experience and determination. You will also need a timer with a beeper or buzzer of some sort. Set the timer for 3 minutes and you will want to start performing the double-arm kettlebell swing for the duration of the 3 minutes. The key here is that you must swing continuously without putting the bell down. This will kick your cardiovascular horsepower into high gear! Give this a try and watch your fitness level take a big turn for the better!
