Total Body Workout

Most likely, you will be so overwhelmed with how hard your heart is beating to notice that this workout is killing your legs, glutes, shoulders, traps and core – but you WILL notice plenty tomorrow. 🙂

total body workoutTools Needed: Dumbbells, Kettlebell, Olympic bar & plates.

10 Clean and Jerks (Bar or DB)
10 Kettlebell Swings (Kettlebell or DB)
10 Vertical Snatches Right* (Kettlebell or DB)
10 Vertical Snatches Left* (Kettlebell or DB)
10 Step Up 1-Arm Shoulder Press Right** (Kettlebell or DB)
10 Step Up 1-Arm Shoulder Press Left** (Kettlebell or DB)

X 4

I did 65lbs (45lb bar + 20lbs) for the clean and jerks, 25lb kettlebell, 15lb snatches and 10lb shoulder press. Try to take as little rest as possible. The heavier the weight, the more rest you’ll have to take to simply not pass out! ha! 🙂 My goal was toning and cardio, so I stayed with all moderate weight. Have fun!

*Traditional kettlebell snatches are more like a swing, into the overhead position. A vertical snatch keeps the kettlebell close to the body and uses more glutes and legs (almost like you are cleaning it first. The kettlebell returns to the floor in the vertical snatch, where the traditional snatch only goes right below the hips.

**I step up and press with the same arm (unlike the instructional video) I had a hard time finding a video for this particular exercise since it’s not a traditional exercise that is very common – but it ROCKS!
