LADY SPARTACUS KETTLEBELL WORKOUT I had the pleasure of working out with Lady Spartan Estella Hom this weekend. Estella has her own body transformation through fitness and nutrition losing more than 60 pounds a few years back and keeping it off ever since. Estella is also a Kettlebell Long Cycle Champion (Clean and Press reps in a slotted time) winning GOLD at the Arnold Classic last year, so she knows how to throw around the kettlebells. It only made sense to create a kettlebell workout for our session. Most KB exercises that you see are generally linear movements, but attending a recent seminar with kettlebell Expert Steve Maxwell, Estella wanted to throw in some circular kettlebell movements to really maximize our training. The result is the below workout that targets the entire body and cardio system, as I was soon to find out. I am still sore from the workout. The bottom line is you are going to build lean muscle,in crease your metabolism to help you burn fat and get a great cardio workout all in 30 minutes.
