When it comes to a good strength workout plan, you really are spoiled for choice. You have a whole world of equipment at your fingertips, and with so many different bits of kit out there, it's a little confusing. There are so many more exercises available with each one, too. One of the best and truly most unique of them is the kettlebell, and that means that finding the right workout plan for it may not be so easy.

To help solve this problem (and since we love kettlebells so much), we’ve put together this awesome 6-week kettlebell workout plan to help you really make the most of yours. Whether you're working out at home or the gym, you can make some serious progress on every muscle group if you know what to do with them!

The Structure

This isn't the first workout we've created, and it certainly won't be the last; that's for sure. With everything we know about exercise, it's important to see what works best in each plan, and for this one, we're going for the classic push-pull legs workout split. It's efficient, effective, and it's famous for a reason.

To really follow the split, we've split up your workouts into three workouts a week over six weeks. This way, you're hitting every major muscle group once a week, and you're hitting it harder than you could with more workouts. You need adequate rest after all, and this is one of the best ways to make sure you're getting it (and keeping some free time too!).

The Exercises

The exercises in this particular workout plan mean that you are really making the most of your kettlebells. You're using some of the most unique kettlebell exercises there are, all in unison, to give your workout a whole new edge. Whether you're truly a beginner to exercise and looking for some guidance or you're an exercise veteran who's just looking for a new workout plan, this really does cater for everyone. No one is too strong for kettlebells!

With all that being said, however, we'll say this too. If any of the exercises prove too difficult for you or they cause any discomfort or risk of injury, it's easy to swap or substitute exercises throughout the plan. If you already have a few favourites or some exercise classics you feel you're missing, make the changes and see what works for you. You need to enjoy your workouts, after all.

Remember though; the exercises get harder every two weeks, so up your game no matter what you choose to do in the long run!
