Why Kettlebells?

Kettlebells are an excellent way to stay very fit and strong, but you need to know a vast array of exercises if this is the only tool you’re going to use in your training. There are so many types of kettlebell exercises that you should never be getting bored with your exercise selection.

Kettlebell Workout Tips

Although the staple exercises like kettlebell goblet squat is one of the many exercises kettlebells gives you access to, they may get a little repetitive as can the other well known kettlebell exercises. Another way to use kettlebells outside of strength training is to add them to Crossfit inspired circuits. This style of kettlebell workout can consist of one kettlebell or two kettlebells, can be to work on muscular endurance or cardiovascular ability. Double arm kettlebells training can be particularly difficult, so give these a try if you feel like a challenge.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Exercises Are Kettlebells Best For?

They can be used for multiple different goals from cardiovascular fitness to increasing strength. However it’s hard to say that it’s best for anything, the biggest benefit of a kettlebell is it’s versatility and that it can be used for both.

Can You Get Ripped With Kettlebell Exercise?

Yes. But getting ripped has much more to do with your emphasis on calorie balance than the style of training you are using to build muscle.

Can A Kettlebell Workout Transform Your Body?

No, not one specific workout. A long period of well designed training can have a huge impact on your body, this plan could involve only kettlebells or a vast array of equipment, but it’s very unlikely that one single specific work out would be able to have an impact on your body.
