This is super tough to pick only one... but if I had no choice.
I'd choose the Turkish Get Up .
As I explain why... I'll do a heavy turkish get up so you can see why I think this is the single best kettlebell exercise.
Then I'll tell you... the close second... best kettlebell exercise.
First The Turkish Get Up Is Total Body
Every major muscle group is used whether it's to hold the kettlebell (isometric strength) in specific positions...
Or moving through the exercise to get up and down (eccentric and concentric strength).
Second The Get Up Requires Coordination
During the get up... you have to look at the kettlebell nearly the entire time for stabiization.
This means you need coordination and good proprioception to know where and how your body is moving.
Third The Get Up Requires Mobility
You will be forced into positions... like when you have to bring your leg into your body so you can come up to the kneeling position.
This is tough. It requires mobility. You should strive to do workouts and exercises that force your body into new positions.
Finally The Get Up Is Really Fun!
It's a fun exercise.
It's a really fun movement...
It looks really cool...
You can do fun variations to make it super hard...
Turkish get ups are my pick for the single best kettlebell exercise.
What Kettlebell Exercise Is a Close Second?
Snatches require strength and lots of cardio. So when you want to get your heart rate up and work on your pure level of fitness... start knocking out kettlebell snatches.
I like to think of them as the burpee equivalent in the kettlebell world.
Tell me below what your one favorite kettlebell exercise is.
Ready To Be Held Accountable To Hit Your Goals?
What I can't stand about the "corporate" fitness programs is how they think accountability and motivation is saying...
"You can do this."
"Come on. Let's do this together."
When in reality they only say this on video and you NEVER hear from these "trainers" outside their videos. Ever.
That's not how you stay accountable and motivated.
To stay accountable, you need a trainer who:
Works out with you LIVE
Talk directly to you... by name... during the workout...
Answers your questions in a private coaching group...
Knows your name and calls you out when needed...
If you're ready for a coach to help keep you focused... to keep you showing up to your workouts.
