Five Fatbell Exercises That Will Improve Your Routine

Posted on August 2, 2017


 

We’ve been having a lot of fun in our Fatbell Revolution class lately. So much fun, in fact, that we just had to share some of our favorite Fatbell movements with you so you can join in on all the good times!

I have to admit, it’s difficult to pick only five! There’s just so much you can do with a Fatbell and once you pick it up, the possibilities are endless. Here’s our, in no particular order, current favorite five:

 

1. Lateral Walking Swing
Legs, Booty, Arms, Repeat. Side step and swing your way to a new & improved fitness routine. This movement can be deceivingly hard as you coordinate a lateral walk with a Russian swing but it’s well worth it! Trust us when we say your legs, booty & arms will thank you.

2. Figure 8 Swing
This swing is guaranteed to make you feel like a fabulously coordinated fitness superstar! It incorporates a one arm swing with a loop around & in between each leg. Want to get even more superstar-ish? Grab a partner and try smoothly handing off the Fatbell in between swings. In the very least, it’ll be good for a friendly laugh (and hopefully no black eyes. Be careful, friends)!

 

3. Kneeling Windmill
This movement is part mobility, part stability, part strength and a whole lotta badass. Combining hip hinge movement and spinal rotation creates a tough exercise that will challenge the whole body.

 

4. Single Straight Arm Sit Up
Can we say core burner?? Weighted sit ups can be difficult on their own, but add in some unilateral movement and that’s where things get spicy! This movement has the added bonus, of not just core work, but also shoulder stability & strength.

 

5. Split Lunge Swing
Just when you thought lunges couldn’t get any more fun, add a Fatbell! This variation is basically a jumping lunge and swing combined. Your heart rate will go up, your legs will burn and you’ll smile through the sweat because this movement is just plain ole fun!
