Lucky breaks down how you can try grab & sweat kettlebell exercises: “You can burn fat fast with grab & sweat, and at the same time, get leaner, well-toned and defined muscles. It includes the kettlebell swing and seated Russian Twist.”
KETTLEBELL SWING: USE A 4-8 KG WEIGHT
Step 1: To begin, you take a wide stance with your feet roughly 1.5 times your shoulder width, and toes pointing slightly outwards.
Step 2: Squat down with your back completely straight (do not confuse this with vertical back). Step 3: Lift up the weight. Remember to keep your head straight and look across the room while you perform the exercise.
Step 4: Squat up and stand erect with your shoulders back. Repeat 15 times.
SEATED RUSSIAN TWIST: CORE EXERCISE
Step 1: Lie down in the sit-up position with a light kettlebell to your side.
Step 2: Keep your legs slightly bent.
Step 3: Pick up the kettlebell from your side and perform a twisting motion carrying the kettlebell to the opposite side and back again.
Step 4: Go as far back as you comfortably can without overextending. Repeat 15 times.
