If you’re looking for a quick workout that targets the core while also giving you some cardio conditioning, this Ultimate Kettlebell Core Workout is for you! This kettlebell core workout led by Amy Dixon is a great way to strengthen your core and define your abs. Combining the best traditional kettlebell core moves—like twists and chops—with a touch of cardio, this is an incredibly effective workout that’s a great way to mix up your normal routine. Instead of doing sit-ups and crunches, you’ll use the kettlebell to twist, chop, and swing your way to better abs.
You’ll start this kettlebell core workout with curtsey lunges, using the kettlebell to twist from side-to-side. Next, you’ll transition to Russian twists, one of the best kettlebell core moves around. By pivoting your feet to swing the kettlebell from side to side, you’ll begin to feel the burn in your midsection and strengthen your core through dynamic movement. The next exercise Amy will display is the wood chop, which will start to get your heart rate up as you continue to work those abs.
Next, you’ll combine these movements into a series to get your core burning! You’ll end your kettlebell core workout with Turkish get ups, rolling up off the floor and driving your movement with the kettlebell. This move requires total body strength and is an amazing toning exercise to get strong and lean. Afterwards, you’ll stretch your muscles and cool down to celebrate the amazing workout you just completed.
Through each of your core moves, Amy will encourage you to give it your all, not being afraid to use a full range of motion to really condition your muscles and torch calories. If you’re ready for a full-throttle routine to define your abs and get you sweating, Amy’s kettlebell core workout is just the one for you.
