The Kettlebell Fat Terminator – The Swing and Push-Up Combination Totalling 400 Reps!


  1. Are you looking for a challenging kettlebell workout to revolutionize your fitness? 
  2. Are you serious about your training and a results oriented individual? 
  3. Do you have an interest in time efficient workouts that require minimal equipment?

So what is so special about the kettlebell fat terminator? Well the short answer is that it’s simple and sinister. So as you know the kettlebell swing is the base lift with the kettlebell that involves a ballistic pulling movement pattern. As a result, this is an exercise that targets hundreds of muscles and generates an awesome production of lean muscle mass when you apply it to your training on a regular basis!

Kettlebell Fat Terminator

So what’s the premise behind this style of workout known as the kettlebell fat terminator?

Well to start, I will come up with 5 different styles of push-ups for you to do to combine with kettlebell swings. This workout is essentially a HIIT style workout to challenge you and help you to enhance your anaerobic work capacity. 

With this workout the focus is to test your mental fortitude while also training agonist/antagonist (opposing muscles) muscle groups. The whole point here is to build symmetry, cardiovascular fitness, and muscular strength.

A few things you need to know…

Below you’ll see the kettlebell swing exercise and corresponding push-up exercise listed. Before the exercise pairing you’ll see the word superset. A superset means you’ll perform the first mentioned exercise and its corresponding sets and reps immediately followed by the second mentioned exercise and its corresponding sets and reps.

After each exercise you’ll also see two numbers separated by an “x.” Here the first mentioned number represents the number of sets you’re to perform with the given exercise. The second mentioned number represents the number of repetitions to perform.

So an example of all of this should look like the following…


Kettlebell swings: 3×20=60

Push-up: 3×10=30

In this example you would perform a single set of kettlebell swings for 20 reps immediately followed by a single set of push-ups for 10 reps. Therefore you would rest after each superset and continue the back and forth combination until you completed all listed sets and reps of each exercise.

Most importantly, prior to performing the kettlebell fat terminator workout make sure you implement the following warm up. This will prime your body for movement. As a result, you should also be proficient at performing kettlebell swings and push-ups before diving into this workout!
