Saved by the bell - Bikini season is upon us, and ladies, we NEED a workout that does wonder.
Whilst one hour cardio or split strength training workout routines may not be cutting it for us, there is another fitness savior on the horizon.
It's the bell. The kettlebell, one of the Russia's best inventions can also be our answer and save us from the last summer's bikini body struggle.
Kettlebell workouts in nature build strength, burn calories and trigger the afterburn effect, and this 20-minute kettlebell high intensity workout is no exception.
Another prestigious kettlebell fan is American Council on Exercise (ACE).
Their study on kettlebells found that the average person can burn 400 calories in just 20 minutes by performing a high-intensity kettlebell workout.
That's about 20 calories a minute, and that calorie burn is equivalent to running a 6 minute mile.
It's no secret that CrossFitters loves calorie burning, body toning high intensity workouts, and one of the tools they use often is kettlebells.
