The surplus in calories intakes combined with zero or very low level of exercise, combined with prolonged periods of being inactive. That is a real cause of why our bodies store fat. In the fat-loss equation, you want to change x and y. Those are calories intake volume and level of exercising (calories burned).
So, let’s talk about that y in our equation, burning calories with kettlebell fat loss workout routine.
Fat burning process

Burning calories with high-intensity kettlebell training, prolonged metabolism effect caused by it and an appropriate diet plan will burn your fat much faster.
So how should that fat loss routine look like?

Like any other training routine, it should start with a proper warm-up. It consists of a proper release of muscle and joints combined with proper muscle activation. Start with some myofascial release (rollers, lacrosse balls).
Next, add some mobility and dynamic stretching routines. Once done, activate your muscles to prepare yourself for burning fats with the kettlebell. As already said, our training is quick and high in intensity.
Also, it should consist of compound moves like picking things up from the floor (deadlift variations), squatting, rotation movement patterns, pushing and pulling patterns. That will help burn calories and transfer training effects to injury prevention and a pain-free way of life.
