It’s been too long since I’ve posted a kettlebell workout. And since I particularly love using the kettlebell during pregnancy I thought it was fitting to share this full body kettlebell workout.

I understand not everyone has a kettlebell in their home gym, BUT YOU CAN STILL DO THIS WORKOUT, using a dumbbell {read more on that below!}.

If you follow along with my workouts and workout calendars, you know I’m a big advocate of mixing up your fitness routine; it makes it more fun and helps avoid fitness plateaus. I always encourage strength-training-lovers to give barre workouts a shot, barre-lovers to pick up some heavy dumbbells.

I believe a well-rounded fitness routine utilizes different workout formats to continue challenging your body in new ways. So if a kettlebell is a little outside of your comfort zone, that probably means it’s time to try a kettlebell workout.

I mentioned earlier, but I personal love kettlebell training during pregnancy as it’s a great way to raise your heart rate in a low impact way — enter the powerful kettlebell swing.

What if I don’t have a kettlebell?

This AMRAP workout can be done with one heavy dumbbell.

If you’re looking to expand your home gym equipment, you can get a kettlebell on Amazon. I love the Amazon Basics Kettlebells, you end paying around $1 per pound of kettlebell which is pretty typical {ex. 25 lb kettlebell costs around $25}.

What does AMRAP mean?

AMRAP can either mean ‘as many repetitions as possible’ or ‘as many rounds as possible’. An example of an AMRAP workout focusing on repetitions {or reps} would be completing as many burpees as possible in 5 minutes — like this 5-Minute Burpee Challenge.

Today’s full body kettlebell workout is ‘as many rounds as possible’. Meaning that completing all 7 kettlebell exercises = 1 round completed. Your goal it to complete as many rounds as possible in 30 minutes.

What are the benefits of AMRAP workouts?

There are a couple of reasons why I love this format of workouts:

  • They’re fun. I’m pretty competitive by nature, so I love challenging myself to see how many rounds I can get in.
  • They demonstrate personal growth over time. Especially if you’re just getting started in your fitness journey, it can be frustrating to have to wait to see physical changes in your body. I love that the AMRAP format provides you a different way to measure growth other than what you see on the scale. You can keep a note on your phone tracking each time you complete the workout and physically see how you’re getting stronger and faster {and able to complete more rounds} over time.
  • They adapt to your fitness needs. AMRAP workouts are awesome because you take them at YOUR OWN PACE. Meaning if you’re sore, pregnant or postpartum, you can scale the workout to what your body needs. It’s still challenging YOU, because you’re working to beat your own record.

Get a total body strength and cardio workout in just 30-Minutes with this effective kettlebell AMRAP.

You’ll use a kettlebell, or one heavy dumbbell, to build strength, power, and endurance. This workout consists of seven full-body kettlebell exercises. You’ll move through all seven exercises at your own pace, completing as many rounds as possible {AMRAP} in 30-minutes.

Equipment: Medium-to-heavy kettlebell or one heavy dumbbell. I’m pictured using a 25 lb kettlebell for this workout, and I suggest using a 15-30 lb kettlebell depending on your fitness level.

Repeat all seven exercises AMRAP, as many rounds as possible, in 30 Minutes. Take rest breaks as needed, but try to keep each rest break under 30 seconds.
