Kill That BOOTY with Kettlebell Moves (and get some A$$kicking in!)

by Brandi Marino of The Beyond Studios

The only thing we love more than doing kettlebells or Pilates on its own is a badass workout that fuses the two for even better body-sculpting results. Why do just one workout when you can get the benefits of a two-in-one sweat sesh? Because while swinging a kettlebell does have its benefits, building those moves into specific workout structures can bring you even closer to your body goals, whether that’s building muscle or sporting a chiseled long lean Pilates body.

To help (because, hey, it’s not like we all have degrees in sports science), I reached out to some of my fitness god friends to create three unique workouts using just seven kettlebell exercises.
