Want a fat burning workout that is quick and effective? Pick up your nearest kettlebell and start swinging.
If you’re just starting a workout routine or you work out most days adding 100 kettlebell swings a day for 30 days can accelerate fat loss, build muscle, and help with posture.
I started the 100 kettlebell swing challenge about two weeks ago and I have already noticed a huge difference in strength and mobility. I thought that kettlebells swings would leave me sore and exhausted. While I do feel a little muscle soreness it seems like it is in all the right places. I also have found that I am more energetic throughout the day. I have not experienced weight loss yet, but I feel my core strength has become much stronger than it was before starting the challenge.
Here are a few tips to get started:
Perfect your form, I think this is the most important rule of the challenge. Poor form can result in injury so when you start to realize that your form is not good stop immediately. Here is great video on completing the perfect kettlebell swing: Kettlebell Form
Work up to 100 kettlebell swings a day, you can start with smaller reps and longer rest times until you are comfortable going up to 100. If you are more advanced you can start with higher reps and shorter rest times.
Consistency is key. Keep track of how many reps you complete in a day. If it is below 100 strive to complete your goal the next day but don’t get discouraged.
Eating a health and balanced diet full of protein, fruits, and vegetables is key to getting in the best shape. Getting enough protein daily can sometimes be challenging, Ground-Based Nutrition’s Superfood Protein is a great way to get in 20 grams of protein daily. Abstaining from sugars and refined carbs is also essential to staying healthy and fit.
