The 20-Minute Kettlebell Couplet Workout for Brute Strength

Build a well-rounded, powerful body in 20 minutes with this powerhouse routine.

If you're a strength training addict who thrives on new ways to challenge the body, kettlebell couplet workouts are a great option for testing your limits and spicing things up.

We recently stopped by to visit Mike Stehle of Training Room Online in Avon and Point Pleasant Beach, N.J., for a fresh routine that he uses to get his clients and athletes the brute strength they desire. Give this blown-out workout a shot. (Click the links for Stehle's visual guides to these exercises.)
