Make sure you’ve got a strong grip as that baby will be swinging at some speed. As you extend your hips, the kettle bell will naturally travel in front of your body, maybe to around eye level.
When the kettle bell begins to fall, bend at the hip again and use the momentum to swing back and into the next rep. Bend your knees slightly to gain some momentum and drive the kettle bell upward as you press it overhead.
Reverse the actions to return to the start position and change grip during the following movement to train your right side. With the weight close to your chest, squat down making sure you push your knees out and avoid leaning forward excessively.
Get the kettle bell into a goblet position, again with the weight resting close to your chest. With your feet at shoulder-width apart, take one long step back with your right foot, bend your left knee and sink into a lunge.

HIIT kettle bell workouts trigger excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (Epic), which is commonly referred to as “after burn.” The all-out efforts in these five workouts increase your body’s need for oxygen during the workout and create an oxygen shortage, causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery. The more oxygen that gets inside your body, the more fat your body burns, so activating Epic translates to a metabolism boost for up to 48 hours after a high-intensity routine.

A monster of an exercise and even more cardiovascular that the kettle bell swings. I like them because kettle bells can often neglect pulling movements so this one is a gem.

Snatch x 10 each side Repeat for 10 minutes Goal 200+ reps If you want to add in the Press then that is fine but for cardio just work quickly with the clean.
The thruster or Squat and Press certainly gets the heart rate up. Interval Training is not a time for changing exercises too often, things need to stay simple so you can push hard.

I remember performing a very tough kettlebellhiit workout of 60 seconds of 32 kg cleans many years ago. When you add in a press you gain the benefits of more core involvement and shoulder conditioning as well as cardio.
You should keep the work and rest periods brief to encourage full commitment and maximum effort for every round. Next, sticking to the Tabatha protocol you can integrate somebody weight exercises to increase the intensity even further.
Another full body workout that takes in some nice lateral movement for the legs and glutes. Kettle bell Tabatha workouts are very effective for both beginners learning a new exercise and for the more advanced athlete looking to be efficient with their time.

The resulting routine out is the aptly named “Brutal KettlebellHIIT Cardio Tabatha Workout”. Let me give a bit of forewarning before you attempt this video; it is not intended for the beginner and though you can make it easier by using lighter kettle bells the nature of the exercises and motions will tax your cardiovascular and pulmonary systems not to mention make most of your body feel like jello when you are done.
With that said feel free to pause the video and take as much extra rest as you need to help you complete this routine straight through. Other than this routine being a fun way to challenge yourself to improve your endurance and strength, it is also a calorie burning powerhouse beating out even the average HIIT workout.
What is even better is that this style of routine also boasts a high after burn effect, increasing the calories you burn over the course of the next 48 to 36 hours even when you are sleeping.
