If you’re looking to shed some pounds and flatten up your stomach – and you’re not using kettlebells in your workouts - you’re missing out big time.
Kettlebell training is hands-down one of the best, fastest, and most efficient ways to both lose body fat and carve out those six pack abs.
KB’s train your abs in a very functional way – the way they were meant to be trained. As an example, a crunch is a typical movement that is used to train the abs. But the crunch is a movement that is very rarely used in real life. In contrast, kettlebell training forces you to use your abs like you do numerous sports activities and in real life every day. Squatting while holding a weight in front of you (as in a Goblet Squat) or powerfully extending your hips and efficiently absorbing and decelerating force (as in a Kettlebell Swing) is about as real-life and functional as it gets.
Kettlebells also train your abs with full-body exercises – you end up blasting those abs, but also hitting a bunch of other muscle groups at the same time. And if we’re trying to burn body fat, that’s the name of the game!
Check out this quick video where I go into more detail on both of these points:
So hopefully, I’ve now convinced you why you should be using kettlebells for fat loss and for working towards that flat midsection … now you need to exactly how to do it (what kettlebell exercises are best, how to structure your workout, etc.). For starters, here are three kettlebell exercises that work the heck out of your abs (and work almost every other muscle in your body as well):
1. Renegade Rows
This exercise, while working a lot of other muscle groups at the same time, is probably one of the most challenging ab exercises you’ll ever do. Here’s an entire post on the Kettlebell Row and variations of it, like the Renegade Row:
2. Front Squats
Kettlebell Front Squats are one of the best kettlebell exercises for your abs. They force you to stabilize a weight in front of you and maintain a neutral spine (if you’re doing the exercise right, that is) through a very real-world and functional movement – squatting! Here’s the full article on how to do the Kettlebell Squat:
3. The Turkish Get Up
The Turkish Get Up is another fantastic exercise for your abs that can be performed using kettlebells. It is, however, highly technical – here’s an article on this blog about how to perform it properly:
