Ever thought of reducing weight by swinging, snatching and jerking a cannon shaped ball. Well that is what kettlebell workouts are about. Kettlebell workouts are a combined regime of cardiovascular, strengthening and flexibility exercises. Kettlebell exercises help develop endurance and build strength in lower back, shoulders and legs. Fat loss, strength, muscle gain and athleticism all through just one workout regime.
Kettlebell workouts follow the most intense regime. These workouts are not time consuming, they take only 20-30 minutes. They are for both men and women. There is no need to purchase a whole set of kettlebells, all you require is just one kettlebell to start your kettlebell fitness program. The good news is that you can never outgrow your kettlebell so it’s a one time investment which provides you for a lifetime. Kettlebell workouts can be classified into two types – grinds and the ballistic exercise. Grinds comprise squats, figure of eights and lifts of the bent knee while the ballistic exercises involve swinging or swinging combined with other exercises.
A flat belly, body strengthening and toning all this can be achieved without the help of a trainer or without even entering a gym. Just do your kettlebell workouts and all this can be gained just sitting at home. Though a dumbbell is said to achieve the same there are differences between the two. A kettlebell’s shifting weight on the handle keeps the core and targeted muscle stable during the workout whereas a dumbbell equally divides weight on both sides. Kettlebell workouts are not some new form of exercise but are a tried and tested method. These exercises have long been used and practiced by the Russian men before having traveled to the west where they have become a trend. Also unlike the bulky gym equipment kettlebells are easy to store and will not break down.
