Caroline Girvan Kettlebell Workouts
The go-to excuse for most people who are not getting enough exercise is a lack of time. We get it. Of course, life is hectic, and many of us are juggling demanding workloads, over-scheduled children, and even elder care issues. With all of that on the go, exactly who has time to work out? But one of the blessings of the digital age is the ease of having an abundance of information literally at our fingertips, including inspiring exercise videos from world-renown coaches.
While we previously recommended Tara’s Body YouTube channel to get your cardio groove on, why not couple that with some equally important weight bearing exercise? If you haven’t heard, working out with weights is essential for bone health. And according to the American National Library of Medicine, it also improves endurance, balance, coordination, and overall health.
So where to start? May we recommend the Irish sensation Caroline Girvan? With 2.5 million subscribers, she must be doing something right! Caroline is a super buff, upbeat, certified personal trainer and nutrition coach with a series of kettlebell workouts on YouTube. She expertly crafts workouts to cover the major muscle groups, building in rest periods between exercises. During those rest periods she in unafraid to show that she too needs a break from her challenging routines. But she also takes the time to slowly demonstrate the proper technique for each subsequent exercise to allow the viewers to maximize the benefits of the workout and avoid injury.
Each workout is set in a neutral, modern home interior to upbeat music and Caroline’s teaching technique and her chosen camera angles make it simple to follow along. Even better, you can choose from workouts that range from 15 minutes to 45 and all you need is a kettlebell and a yoga or exercise mat. Let’s be honest, if you can’t find 15 minutes to improve and maintain your health, it’s time to re-evaluate your priorities.
