Kettlebell workout for runners

Kettlebell exercises are the perfect way to add dynamic stability in your workout. Dynamic stability allows you to keep balance as you move which is of vital importance for runners.

Note: You should work within your limits, and if you are a beginner or have any health issues consult your doctor or healthcare provider before starting.

Kettlebell Dead Lift

  • Stand straight and take a kettlebell in your right hand. Keep your stomach sucked in tight and your shoulders back.
  • Put your left leg on the ground, this leg will be your support on this side.
  • Your right leg should go back straight, while the front of your body comes down almost parallel to the ground. Slowly start leaning forward, without breaking the hips, allowing the weight to carry you down, while pushing the right leg back towards the wall behind you.
  • Then, slowly go back to standing position. You should be feeling this in your core, your left hamstring and your right glute.
  • If this move is difficult for you, keep the ball of the right foot on the ground, so that you won`t be completely balance, but you will still have that support. Then do the DL from this position as it will still give you a good hamstring workout on the left side.

Lunges with a Kettlebell

  • Stand up straight with your legs at shoulder width apart. Take a kettlebell and hold it with both hands at your check height. Avoid resting your arms on your body. If you leave a gap for them in front of you, you will be able to work a little harder.
  • Then, step forward with your right leg and go into a deep lunge. You will want your left knee to almost tap the floor.
  • Push back on the right foot to standing.

Kettlebell Swing

  • Stand straight with your feel slightly wider than shoulder width apart. Place the kettle bell of your choice in front of you.
  • Squat down and pick the kettle bell.
  • Suck your stomach in, roll your shoulders back.
  • Next, bend your knees while pushing your butt back towards the back wall of the room. Allow the kettlebell to swing towards the back wall as you do this.
  • At the same time, swing your arms forward, stand up straight, squeeze your glutes and suck in your stomach, allowing the kettlebell to swing forward.
  • As it starts to swing back again, bent into your squat position once again and repeat the entire move again until you are done with all your repetitions.
