Weights come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. One way to incorporate weights into your workout is by using a kettlebell. A kettlebell is a cast-iron ball-shaped weight with a single handle. They are often brightly colored and very fun to use! Why should you use a kettlebell? How do you use kettlebells? Read below for the benefits and ways to incorporate one into your next workout!
If you’re looking for way to incorporate more cardio while weight lifting then look nofurther. Kettlebells are a great way to burn fat. By swinging, snatching or jerking the kettlebell your body is moving all as one, and requires more work. When you’re working harder, your body is burning more calories. Your body is also using more muscle groups at once, making kettlebell work time efficient.
Using a kettlebell for a workout requires one piece of equipment, a kettlebell. How easy is that?! You can achieve a full body workout with just one weight. There isn’t the planning of different weights or reps. You won’t have to waste time getting other pieces of equipment set up. You can streamline your entire workout!
When using a kettlebell, muscles are being activated in the same way everyday movements like picking up a baby or carrying groceries are being used. With more and more kettlebell use, life demands will become easier and easier. Your laptop bag won’t feel so heavy, gallons of milk will be easier to place in the shopping cart and raking the leaves won’t leave your arms exhausted!
