Break away from the typical fat burning methods of cardio, interval training and bodybuilding workouts by combining kettlebells with a TRX suspension trainer. We've asked owner of Drench Fitness boutique and training correspondent to HUMANFITPROJECT, Adam Von Rothfelder, C.S.C.S. for a combo workout that will push you to the limits and lean you out in no time.

THE WORKOUT

Each exercise is to be completed in a circuit format with zero rest in between exercises. You will complete each circuit for a total of four rounds. You may take 1 minute breaks in between rounds.

MOVE ONE: Kettlebell Snatch

Perform 6 repetitions

Placing weight roughly 6” in front of your feet, swing the kettlebell back with your hips. Drive your hips forward and swing the kettlebell to about shoulders-height.
