These are my three favorite kettlebell exercises.

Single Leg Deadlift

I like to call this exercise the Surgical Butt Lift (obviously without the surgery though).

This exercise works your glutes, hamstrings, lats, abs – almost your entire body.

Tips: Make sure your knee is up and your glute is tight when you come up. You can place your other foot lightly on the ground for stability.

Kettlebell Swing

The kettlebell swing is strength and conditioning all in one.

Tips: When you’re doing this exercise, really explode with your hips. Remember this is not a squat. It’s a hinge exercise. So explode and let the force from your hips carry the kettlebell forward.

Watch your heart rate rise and your glutes get stronger.

Turkish Get Up

You can get really strong by just doing this one exercise. It really works your entire body.

Tips: The Turkish Get Up can take 6 hours to learn. Start slowly and with a light weight until you really dial in your form.
