Kettlebell Core Workout

Lower Core Workouts

  • beginner level

Perform three days a week with one day of rest between workouts (i.e. Monday, Wednesday, Friday). For optimal results each exercise should challenge your muscles. However, you first should start with lighter weights till you properly learn each movement pattern. Once mastered, select the amount of weight that causes you to fatigue during the specified reps below. For example, if an exercise calls for 12 reps your goal it to find a weight that causes you to fatigue during the 12th rep in proper form. As you get stronger you should increase the weight for the best outcome.
