The name of this week’s workout may seem not desirable. However, we need to look at the definition of the word. The Free online dictionary defines trouble as:

trou·ble  (trbl)


1. A state of distress, affliction, difficulty, or need: tried to console them in their trouble; got in trouble with the police.
2. A distressing or difficult circumstance or situation: I’ve had troubles ever since I took this job.
3. A cause or source of distress, disturbance, or difficulty: The new recruits were a trouble to him.
4. Effort, especially when inconvenient or bothersome: went to a lot of trouble to find this book.
5. A condition of pain, disease, or malfunction: heart trouble; car trouble.


a. Public unrest or disorder.
b. An instance of this; a disturbance.
c. Troubles Any of various conflicts or rebellions in Ireland or Northern Ireland, especially the period of social unrest in Northern Ireland beginning in 1969.
v. trou·bledtrou·blingtrou·bles

1. To agitate; stir up.
2. To afflict with pain or discomfort.
3. To cause emotional strain or anxiety to; worry or distress.
4. To inconvenience; bother: May I trouble you for directions?
After reading this definition it becomes obvious why a kettlebell complex workout would be named like this.  ( if you have ever done one, you know what I am talking about!) This week’s workout has the fat blasting intensity of a banshee’s scream and will leave you wanting to do it again, so that you can beat your previous quality reps/sets. Just remember even though it is trouble you will want to stay relaxed while training in order to get the full conditioning/fat loss benefit.

Double Trouble

How to do it:

Grab two bells, 16 to 24 kg for the dudes and 12 to 16 for the dudettes. Then you will perform Double swings, double cleans, front squats and a presses. The rep scheme is 1-5 and then 5-1 and you will continue this for 10 – 20 minutes or as long as you can keep your perfect form.


  • Do all of your sets and reps with quality form. Crap only produces crap!
  • Breathe by matching your breathing with each pattern ( in on the bottom of the swing movements and out on the top, In on the way down on the squat and out on the top)
  • Rest as much as you need to and no more.
  • Tough it out while working out ( keep in mind the results)
  • Enjoy the fat blasting effect and raised metabolism!
