1. Kettlebells are easy to use in a HIIT workout, since you can quickly transition from one exercise to another.
2. You can do explosive moments with kettlebells (like the swing), which help you get that heart pumping and torch calories.
3. Performing a kettlebell conditioning workout 3x a week can improve your VO2 max (a measure of your aerobic fitness) by as much as 6%!
Plus today’s deadlift work will get you stronger just in time for the weekend.
