By now it’s common knowledge that high-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a much more effective training modality than low-intensity, long-duration aerobic exercise. Combine HIIT with our favorite training tool – the kettlebell – and you have the dream team of exercise efficiency. Kettlebell training is fast, portable, and versatile, and helps you build both strength and cardiovascular endurance. Not only can you do all the things you could do with a dumbbell or a barbell to build strength, but you can introduce more dynamic movements like swings, cleans, and snatches to get your heart rate up.

And if your budget is too tight for a monthly gym membership, buy a couple of kettlebells and you can workout anywhere: at home, at the park, at the beach. That adds affordability, time-saving, and convenience to the list of kettlebell training benefits! Now all you need is guidance on what workouts to do, and we’ve got you covered. Check out the following 4 workouts from KOR coach Brittany van Schravendijk to get you started with HIIT kettlebell training!
