Benefits Of Double KB Movements

Increasing Load Means Increased Stimulus

The single kettlebell is a very effective tool for gaining full body strength and cardiovascular capabilities, so why use two? Well, doubling the kettlebells allows us to massively increase the stimulus through increasing the weights used. This form of bi-lateral training with a kettlebell means the core doesn’t have to be used as much and therefore wont be a limiting factor, allowing us to be more effective at creating strength or hypertrophy adaptations.

Efficient (Saves Times)

Not only does bi-lateral allow us to use more load, it also creates a much shorter workout, making them perfect if your short on time.

Effective Cardiovascular Movements

Double kettlebell exercises are also great in cardiovascular HIIT circuits, but today we are going to be talking through exercises for developing full body strength. These exercises are also great at developing functional strength, meaning the develop multiple adaptations at once, which means they are perfect for people who play lots of sports, for example the double kettlebell farmers carry.
