Kettlebells are all the rage now. You’ve probably seen them at the gym or in a fitness commercial: they look like cannonballs with handles on top of them. Some of the newer novelty ones have special shapes, like the face of a gorilla, or can be square instead of round, and some are wrapped in a layer of vinyl so they don’t scratch gym floors.

The Clean is one of the most critical movements to learn, as it will enable you to be able to do more advanced movements. Almost all of the single-handed kettlebell movements start with the Clean. No one wants a dirty Clean ;-)

"The expert at anything was once a beginner." -Helen Hayes

While you're still working on the Clean movement, here are some workouts you can that don't require the Clean, so that you can still get the benefit of kettlebells, but not put yourself at risk for a movement that you haven't mastered.

You should be able to do a proper two-handed kettlebell swing before you try these routines.

Beginner Routine #1
Beginner Routine #2
Beginner Routine #3

This is a great warmup to prepare the muscles, tendons, and ligaments for the ballistic force required to handle the kettlebell. It is not mandatory, but very helpful to prevent injury and ensure an efficient workout. 

You can use this as a:

  • Warmup 
  • Workout 
  • Supplement to your workout

You will need to have already mastered the Swing and the Clean before using this routine.

Kettlebell Warmup

Once you are comfortable with the Swing and the Clean, you can begin to start the next level of kettlebell training.

“Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience.” – Denis Waitley

Advanced Routine #1
Advanced Routine #2
Advanced Routine #3

This is a long workout and will torch fat, build strength and endurance, and it will test your mental fortitude and your will. 

I share this workout with you to show how creative (and masochistic) you can be when creating your kettlebell routines. This is not a required part of the course, nor is it necessarily something you should shoot for. It all depends on your fitness goals.
