The Kettlebell Leg Matrix!

Want to jack your legs up, melt bodyfat, and build crazy high lactic acid tolerance in 2 minutes or less? Look no further than the leg matrix, popularized by Alwyn Cosgrove and JC Santana. Done at a blistering pace, the circuit takes about 2 minutes - and if you're not in 'fight' shape, can leave you on your ass! Great as part of a conditioning workout on their own or as a finisher to a strength session, the Leg Matrix is a killer.

The tradional "leg matrix" is as follows
24 bw squats
24 lunges (12 each)
24 jump lunges (12 each)
24 jump squats

To make this even more dreadful, add a 53lb. kettlebell to the mix. Don't say I didn't warn ya!

1. 12 Left Hand squats
2. 12 Right Hand Squats
3. 12 Left Hand/Left Leg Reverse Lunges
4. 12 Right Hand/Right Leg Reverse Lunges
5. 24 Two Handed Swings

Try going through that sucker once or twice at the end of a session and tell me what you think!

Purchase a solid cast-iron kettlebell without a vinyl coating. Vinyl coating doesn't enhance performance or protect your floors. register of exercise professionals courses
