One of the best kettlebell circuits can involve a series of kettlebell lifts coupled with some body weight exercises for slightly less intermittent bouts of intensity. For this particular article I am including a tremendous 3 lift circuit that is coupled with a body weight drill for super hard body results. Check out this sick cardio workout.

If you are wanting a workout that will dial up the cardio factor in your kettlebell workouts then this circuit is a great place to start. If you observe the exercises that I have laid out in the circuit you will notice that I am coupling kettlebell lifts that are primarily pulling oriented in nature, except for the clean and jerks which involve both pull and push oriented movement. The body weight exercises are also of a more endurance related structure with the burpee being of a more intense push orientation to offset the kettlebell pulling lifts.
The reason I structured the circuit so that the kettlebell lifts are primarily causing the greatest exertion is because I wanted to include body weight drills that could offer a bit of recovery, at least as much as expected with the endurance exercises listed. This particular structured circuit is to be executed by you going immediately from one exercise to the next without rest. The kettlebell lifts and body weight drills included here are also meant to flow and transition rather smoothly from one to the next for maximal cardiovascular benefit. This is the whole point of a circuit. Some of the best circuits you can engage in are kettlebell circuits. You can determine your own rep count here based on your ability, but I prefer executing at least 3 rounds of anything if possible. I just happened to be partial to 3's.
If you are wanting to step up your kettlebell workouts then you have got to give this little hard body circuit a try.
