Kettlebell trainin’ is a great way to develop caveman strength and boost your overall strength and endurance. It’s also a great and accessible exercise training workout that’s perfect for everyone whether you’re a hard-core athlete lookin’ for an edge or a sedentary person tryin’ to discover fitness for the first time. Even the American Council on Exercise recognized the benefits of kettlebell training sayin’:
“The reason for the surge in kettlebell training is that it gets back to basic training that requires functional, whole-body fitness… a great way to get a whole body workout in a relatively short period of time.”
Thinkin’ about pickin’ up a kettlebell? Here are my top 5 reasons to pick up on this fitness trend.
- Serious cardio without the boredom of the hamster wheel (treadmill). If you’re in need of some cardio stimulation but can’t stomach the idea of another hour on the treadmill, pick up some kettlebells. A study by the American Council on Exercise found that the average person burns 272 calories in 20 minutes when doing kettlebell exercises.
- Perfect for busy people Kettlebells is a great solution for exercisers on the go who need to squeeze cardio, strength, and flexibility training into an already overbooked schedule.
- Greater fat loss The high metabolic cost of throwing weight around combined with strength training to create dense muscle mass burns calories from fat quickly to give you all-over tone.
- Strengthens every muscle from head to toe Kettlebell training consists of whole-body movement exercises, making superior to fitness machines that target very specific muscle groups.
- Extremely versatile Kettlebells can help you lose weight, build muscle, enhance sport performance, or maintain fitness level. All in one simple tool!
