Build Muscle and Improve Your Stability With This Trainer's 5-Move Strength Workout
Morit Summers is an NSCA and RKC level 1 and 2 certified trainer who is changing the fitness industry with her all-inclusive approach. Morit believes that fitness is for everyone and wants all people — regardless of their ethnicity, size, and skill level — to feel welcome in any fitness environment, which led her to opening her own all-inclusive gym, Form Fitness, in Brooklyn, NY.
If you aren't based in NY and still want to check out Morit's style of training, follow along with this strengthening kettlebell workout she created. "Kettlebells are usually used as a tool to work on endurance and power," she told POPSUGAR. For those who don't like training with kettlebells or who have never used them, Morit said to substitute the kettlebell with a dumbbell, sandbag, or other weighted object.
Be sure to warm up with dynamic drills or a light five- to 10-minute jog on the treadmill before getting started. Complete the five-move circuit two to four times.
- Kettlebell goblet squat with bicep curl: 8-15 reps
