Total Gym and Kettlebell Supersets
The kettlebell weight (resembling a cannonball with a handle) is used to perform exercises that combine cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training. The kettlebell allows for swing and release moves. Additionally, its unique shape provides the “unstable force” for handling, which makes it a very effective complement to exercises on the Total Gym.
We’ve combined the core strength focus of the Total Gym with the power handling of the kettlebell, to demonstrate some superset options for exercising the upper body and quads. In this instance, superset refers to performing two different exercises for the same muscle group, without rest. This series can be performed as a circuit with 2 or 3 full repetitions.
I would like to acknowledge the staff at Sky Club Fitness, located at 750 Bloomfield Avenue in West Caldwell, NJ, for providing their beautiful facility and Total Gym equipment.
