No kettlebells? No problem! Band swings are an amazing alternative to kettlebell swings! Great for your whole body but even BETTER For your glutes!

When times like these arrive and gyms are no longer open, your mind starts to think…Now is the time to be creative! Since being in the epicenter of the pandemic I knew gyms would be closed sooner rather than later. I knew what I had…and what I needed to do in order to stay fit.

Kettlebell Work

One thing I enjoy is kettlebell swings. What sucks is that kettlebells are a ton of money and it would not be worth my time to buy them. I knew I had a set of bands and they were very versatile, it was just a matter of using them like I have not used them before.

So after a few days of experimenting I finally find a kettlebell swing alternative! You are probably saying, “How is that even possible?”. Well it is…and if you watch my video above, you can see the kettlebell swing alternative I use is very efficient.

Go ahead and watch it! I dare you to have an awesome workout!

Kettlebell Swing Workout

Kettlebell workouts are effective for fat burning

In any event if the bands are not enough you can always get a kettlebell set for kettlebell swings. For an ultimate fat burning kettlebell swing workout, see below:

4×25 – Kettlebell Swings
4×25 – Kettlebell Shoulder Press
4×25 – Kettlebell Russian Twist
4×25 – Bent Over Rows (Both arms)

If you need a deeper explanation of what these kettlebell exercises are, please feel free to contact me here.

Repeat 3-4 times for an ultimate kettlebell workout! Stay tuned for more workouts!

Russian kettlebell swing

There are two different kettlebell swings, the Russian and American.

The Russian kettlebell swing starts with a position, very similar to the deadlift. In this movement, a powerful hip thrust will occur, while simultaneously squeezing your abs and ultimately having a further range of motion as it swings from under your legs to right about level with your chest.

American Kettlebell Swing
Unlike the Russian swing, the American kettlebell swing ends right at head level. Having the kettlebell go head level increases your cardiovascular output as well as working on shoulders at the same time. Both versions engage abs and legs! So overeall both great choices.

Kettlebell Exercises

There are many kettlebell exercises you can perform, and if you’d like you can alternate them with the ones above, below are some of my favorite.

  • Squats
  • Deadlifts
  • Shoulder Front Raises
  • Incline Chest Press
  • Tricep Overhead Extensions
  • Hammer Curls

Exercise Equipment – What?

Stuck at home? Gyms are closed, summer is around the corner and there is no squat rack or dumbbell in site. So what do you do? Build a home gym!

Now, I know everyone does not have room for racks of weights, exercise balls, machines etc. But the world of functional training and small gadgets still exist!

Exercise Bike

Stationary Bike

Exercise bikes are great to have in your bedroom or your home gym. Where ever you decide to place it, this is definitely a great piece of equipment! I know you are not exactly riding down the coast, popping wheelies or jumping over benches but it is a great piece of cardio equipment if you cannot get outside.

Treadmill

Fun times on a Treadmill!

Yeah not the funnest piece of equipment for your gym at home, but if you are looking for something that is low impact this does the trick. Remember how I mentioned 10,000 steps in a previous post? Well this baby can help with that. It is more movement than actually exercise which is great on the body, low stress and relaxing. Don’t get me wrong you can run and do sprints but you can also take a brisk walk or warmup/cool down as needed.

Elliptical

You may not be a big fan, but something like this can benefit if you have older people in your house, light impact and good on the joints. For whatever reason my parents and aunts/uncles are really into this piece of workout equipment. I just stare at it and hang my towel on it.

Smith Machine

Now this piece of equipment may not fit in everyone’s home gym but if you are lucky enough to have a garage gym, you are in business! Make sure to be careful when you squat, dead lift, etc with caution…People are watching ;).

Weight Bench

This is a good add on (obviously). Whether it’s chest, legs, back, shoulder whatever! This is an awesome piece of equipment. You can also implement cardio with a bench. Step-ups is a great exercise or maybe perhaps abs? There are tons of activities you can do with this little number here.

Resistance Bands

Resistance Bands are great to use at home

One of my faves. These really do not hurt to have, unless you fling it like a rubber band then we are in big trouble. There are many resistance band workouts you an do! Click here to checkout my Youtube Video to see what I mean. Bands are great or a full body workout.

Dumbbells
