Squat and press to sculp your feminine curves

Long live the kettlebel! In this blog post I’ll talk about a super easy kettlebell workout that will torch fat, build strength, improve cardio fitness and tone up your feminine curves. Are you after a leg and butt-busting strength exercise? The weighted squat and press exercise will make that lower body burn to the max and prep it for your next famous “leg-moment”.

The weighted squat and press exercise is an absolute must to incorporate into your next leg day! This exercise will improve your full body strength (glutes, hamstrings, quads) and also greatly increase your core strength and stability. I love the great variation that comes with this exercise. Though I prefer to use a kettlebel, you can vary with dumbbells, a barbell or a medicine ball. And if you’re working out at home (or outdoor) and you can’t provide yourself with these type of fitness equipment, just use water bottles!

Beginner or advanced fit girl? No worries, simply adapt the weight and try to increase it each week. Woohooo, guess we’re all saved by the kettlebell!

Weighted squat & press
Start position: Stand up with your feet wider than shoulder-with and hold a kettlebell/medicine ball or other weight with two hands in front of your stomach.
Movement: Squat down as low as you can until your knees are bent about 90 degrees, keeping your back straight and your heels on the ground. During this movement you lower the kettlebell between your legs and in line with your face until it almost touches the ground. TIP: Keep your back as upright as possible and make sure your knees don’t cross the plain of your toes.
Finish: Press back up while you raise the kettlebell above your head with extended arms. Come back into your start position and repeat the movement.

GO!: 4x 20 reps.

Are you ready to meet your strong and sculpted feminine curves? Set, ready and GO!

    Isn't that skirt gorgeous? (the other day, I was looking through my closet, thinking, hmm, I thought I had a mustard-colour skirt…? before coming to my senses) I also do not like the tie very much (I just wear it at the back) but the loose sweater + skinny belt complements the skirt nicely! I just need to transfer some photos from the computer so I can show the rest of your clothes asap. Will do that this week!
