30-Minute Kettlebell Tabata Workout

Way back in the early 18th century, Russian farmers invented kettlebells. Their intentions had nothing to do with exercise, though.

The farmers needed a uniform way to measure the weight of crops, and developed the handled object to act as a counterweight and thus a primitive scale. Eventually, though, they realized the kettlebells had additional benefits.

The farmers could also use the cast-iron, cannonball-like objects with a handle to get stronger.

A kettlebell, like many other fitness gadgets, can be used for exercises that target every muscle of the body. Combining a handful of those exercises in one session can lead to a challenging full-body workout.

Note: The following exercises should be done as a Tabata workout. Perform each exercise for a total of four minutes, alternating between 20 seconds of high intensity and 10 seconds of rest. Still confused? Learn more about the Tabata trend here.
