The new Fire Hydrant exercise

By David Dutton, Guardian staff writerFire hydrant exercises are great for building a stronger immune system and for reducing your stress levels. 

But you may want to look at how they’re also a great way to get fit. 

And there are loads of exercise options you can choose from. 

In this exercise, you’ll be climbing a fire hydrant, which is the biggest thing you can climb in a gym. 

There are also plenty of other ways to burn fat, but here are a few of our favourites.1.

The Fire Ball ExerciseFire balls are a great exercise for the heart, with lots of different variations. 

Try them for 15 minutes and see how many you can burn. 

If you’re keen to be active on the fitness scale, you can add a fitness activity, like running, to the mix. 

Then if you’re looking to get into the gym for a workout, there’s a range of different exercises to choose from that include squats, deadlifts, sit-ups, push-ups and some different kettlebell swings. 

You can also play around with different kettle bells for different exercises, like kettlebells with different weights. 

Or you can just do the kettlebell exercise in reverse, which involves hitting your kettlebell and bouncing it around. 


The Power Ball ExerciseIf you want to burn some extra fat, this is a great one to do with a kettlebell. 

It’s a variation of the kettle bell exercise, but you’re going to need to lower your weight a little bit and increase the height. 

The power ball exercise involves swinging your kettle bell around with the weight on your shoulders and the kettle bar. 

When you do this exercise it’s easy to feel sore, but if you think you might be able to recover it should feel a lot more fun and less painful. 


The Sledgehammer ExerciseIf a kettle bell is a good exercise for burning fat, you might want to try a hammer exercise, where you hammer a kettle in the ground. 

Here you’ll need to lift the kettle on your hands and knees, while the kettle is resting on the ground, so that it’s sitting on top of the ground rather than lying on top. 

While it’s probably not the best exercise for weight training, it might help with recovery after a workout. 


The Spinning ExerciseFor this exercise you’ll want to spin a kettle. 

Kettlebells spin with different angles, so you can change the angle depending on how hard you’re spinning. 

Just make sure you spin at a fairly slow pace and keep your grip on the kettle.

If you need to do more than one exercise in a workout and you’re feeling a little sore, you could also do the spinner drill, where the kettle sits on a table. 


The Barbell ExerciseBarbells are an excellent exercise for building muscle, but they can also be used for bodybuilding. 

For this one, you’re just going to use a kettle, with the kettle and barbell resting on either side of it. 

Again, the kettle should sit on the table.

If this exercise feels a little awkward, try using a kettle or kettlebell with a different weight. 


The Dumbbell ExerciseIf using a dumbbell can help you burn more fat, try this exercise. 

Use your dumbbell to lift a kettle up to a height of 30cm, with a height requirement of 12cm. 

Do this for 15 seconds, then repeat this exercise for 30 seconds. 


The Kettlebell Hammer DrillThe kettlebell hammer drill is a popular exercise to try for muscle building, but it can also help you get fit by building muscle and strength. 

Instead of using the kettle to swing a kettle and then hitting it, do this for 5-10 seconds with a heavy kettlebell on your shoulder. 

This drill helps you build muscle and balance, so it can be a great alternative to a kettle with a heavier weight.8.

The Hammer and Kettle Bar ExerciseYou might be tempted to just use a hammer for this exercise but you might also want to work on a kettle to build your strength, as it will allow you to work harder. 

Start with a 20cm kettlebell, then add more weight if you need it. 9.

The Weighted Kettle Ball ExerciseThis exercise is a bit of a hybrid between the kettle ball and the hammer. 

With the kettle still on the floor, you need your bodyweight to keep the kettle down, while you add weight to your back. 

To do this, just put the kettle onto a weight that you can hold with your hands. 

Take your kettleweight and place it on top, then place it against the back of your hands, as if you were holding a kettle kettlebell in your hands with your thumb. 

Keep your weight on the bar
