Today's Workout 4: The ultimate kettlebell mobility circuit

It’s easy to hit snooze a few times before rolling out of bed and dragging your feet into the office. But we’ve got a better idea: Instead of feeling sluggish during the first (and most important) few hours of the day, jumpstart your morning with this energizing, rapid-fire kettlebell circuit that you can easily do in your living room.

Grab a kettlebell, set aside 30 minutes in your early-morning routine, and take on a few rounds of this three-move workout that includes alternating kettlebell swings, one-arm kettlebell thrusters, and kettlebell Russian twists. You’ll get a good sweat going, and wake up your muscles so that you can attack the rest of the day with some real energy.

Directions

You’ll do this workout as a circuit, meaning you’ll complete each exercise consecutively without rest. Once you’ve finished all exercises, rest for 60 seconds. Repeat the entire circuit for 4 to 6 rounds.

Depending upon your ability, you may shorten or lengthen the rest period. You may also complete more or fewer rounds.
