In today’s blog article, you’ll find the ‘hat trick’ of kettlebell workouts.

I hope you have enjoyed the kettlebell workouts over the last few days.

They have definitely given me ideas on fun ways to refresh my workouts.

Hey! It’s Mike Whitfield with Kettlebell Finishers, and we are back again with another awesome finisher for my man, Chris Lopez. This time Chris is going to do the work and I will attempt to coach him through it.

This is called the Manhattan Beach Finisher. Just like Chris talked about in the other videos, you want to have a root position, with your abs braced. Let’s go and get into position!

#1 – Snatch

We’re going to start off with a snatch, using the 2010 method. Snatch for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds. Chris is going to show you a few reps. The Snatch is a great basic kettlebell exercise.

#2 – Goblet Squat

Perform 20 seconds of the Goblet Squat, then rest for 10 seconds. Try to squat as deeply as possible and keep the kettlebell locked in position close to your chest. Keep your elbows glued to your sides.

#3 – Halo

This is going to shred your abs. This is a unique exercise, but again, it’s going to really force your core to work hard. This is very basic but very awesome. Again, we’re going to do the exercise for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds.

#4 – Clean and Press

Now move onto the clean and press, using the same method of 20 seconds of exercise and 10 seconds of rest. Focus on maintaining good hard abs and proper breathing. Again, 20 seconds on and 10 seconds rest. Make sure you do it right.

#5 – Swing

Make sure your feet are grounded doing the hitch and hinge. Force the kettlebell up to chest height, but no higher than that. Again, do the exercise for 20 seconds on and 10 seconds off.
