Hostyle Conditioning Bench Press and Kettlebell Hybrid Training Workout and Video

Kettlebell and Powerlifting


I am working on some Powerlifting / Kettlebell Hybrid workout routines.

This was 8 rounds of Bench Press for 6 Reps and Kettlebell Snatch L and R for 5 reps each…no official rest, just get it done

8 Rounds of..

  • Bench Press 6 reps
  • Kettlebell Snatch 5/side

no official rest…..

Weight Selection for Kettlebell / Powerlifting Hybrid Workout

Use a weight you can bench 10 -12 reps with and then a a moderate weight for your kettlebell snatches.

I am just getting back into training after not training for 2 weeks as well built and moved into our new 6000 sq ft Training facility.

So this was a perfect workout to ease back in, could also be a great deload workout too.

What Weights Did I use?

For this workout I used 315 lbs on the bench and a 24kg (55 lbs) Kettlebell for the snatch

I could have gone heavier on both, but being it was meant to be a deload and not a total grind this seemed the appropriate selections.

During the workout I could really feel the shoulders working in all areas, mobility, fatigue and blood flow.

The transition from the bench to the Snatches also opened up my chest chest muscles not to mention hitting my Triceps from some very different angles.

Going from powerful tight bench press strokes to ballistic explosive moves of the snatch was also pretty cool on the nervous system and the fast twitch muscle fibres.

Multiple systems were affected in this one workout

At Hostyle we are always working on combining training methods to create better and more challenging workouts.

When you can keep your “head” more involved in the workout, you achieve much better results across the board.

Your focus is on the task at hand and this keeps you from thinking of how tired you are and how much your lungs and muscles are burning.

This allows you to push thru tougher plateaus that regular training or mindset wouldn’t get you there.

Taxing the

  • Mind
  • Muscle
  • Nervous system
  • Cardio vascular system
  • Mobility

Simultaneously is super efficient and a lot of fun.
