Common Questions

Which Seated Kettlebell Exercise Should I Use?

Choosing exercises when you have lower body injuries is all based on which exercises cause pain or not. Exercise used should never cause any pain whatsoever. Once you’r sure the exercise doesn’t cause any pain then the selection should be based on the desired adaptation from the movement.

Can You Build Muscle With Just Kettlebells?

Yes. You can build muscle mass with just using kettlebells. It may not be the most optimal way to build muscle mass, but you can work all movement patterns. It’s clear you’ll need a few kettlebells of differing weight to create a very effective programme as different muscle groups will require a different amount of stimulus.

What Part Of The Body Does Kettlebell Swings Work?

The kettlebell swing is considered a “full body exercise” as it does put emphasis on multiple joints, but the main part of the body that this movement creates adaptation in is the posterior chain, this included the hamstrings, glutes and lower back. This doesn’t mean that this is the only places the movement works but these are the main areas of emphasis.
