Kettlebell Training is really unique in a lot of ways. Here’s why I think kettlebells are one of the best tools for getting you in great overall condition:
Training with KB’s is a great cardio workout, no matter what your fitness level is
One of my favorite things to do is take someone who thinks they’re in really good shape – like an recreational endurance athlete for example (hope I didn’t offend anybody with that one ) – and put them through a kettlebell circuit workout. They’re usually smoked in less than 10 minutes – and I think a big reason for that is because kettlebell training taxes your body so differently than any other strength tool.
It hits the muscles that probably need it the most
The back of your body is a big focus with exercises like the kettlebell swing. Your glutes, hams, lower back, and lats are done after a hard swing session. These muscles of the posterior chain also happen to be areas of the body that most people lack strength.
You can get a great workout in a really short amount of time
Intelligently training with kettlebells is one of the best ways to get a total body workout in 15 or 20 minutes. It’s the perfect tool for those of us who want and need a great workout but don’t always have a lot of spare time.
