Many people are used to seeing kettlebells laying on the floor of their gym, untouched and looking unused. We think this is because most people don’t understand the power and effectiveness of a good kettlebell workout. Here are some of the benefits we can’t wait to share with you:
You’ll Work All Your Muscles
Kettlebells are a full body workout. While there are fitness moves that concentrate on just your arms and legs, much of what we do with kettlebells involves our entire bodies. We guarantee that after your first kettlebell workout, you’ll feel sore in places you didn’t even know you had muscles. While many people may choose to hold the kettlebell close to their chests while they do squats, kettlebells work their magic best when they are being thrown around. When you do more dynamic exercises, you have to learn how to control the momentum of the kettlebell—and in the process, you’ll tap into big muscles like your legs, as well as smaller ones, like your abs.
You’ll Lose More Weight Faster
Kettlebells are a cardio workout and a strength training workout in one. Because of this, your body has to work twice as hard to perform kettlebell exercises correctly. In fact, the University of Wisconsin researched the energy output of a kettlebell session. Those who participated burned about 20 calories a minute! These exercises require all of your muscles to work together, which means that you must use more energy to do it right.
