There are a lot of pieces of equipment I use when I am training. Barbells, bands, medicine balls, dumbbells, sandbags just to name a few.
And they all get me results.
But the one piece of equipment that I always go back to and use, almost, in every workout is the Kettlebell.
If you’re not familiar with the Kettlebell, as you can see it looks like a cannon ball or bowling ball with a handle.
To some it looks intimidating, but believe me, these bad boys can be tamed and in the end your workout is better for it!
There are MANY reasons to use the Kettlebell in your training, but here are just a few.
As a mom, wife and a business owner I sometimes don’t have an hour or even 30 min to get my training in. This, for me, is a problem. Training/working out is a way for me to have “Me time”, get rid of stress and of course stay in shape. With Kettlebells, I can get a complete whole body workout within 20 minutes. And yes by the end, I am sweatin’!
- Kettlebell Swings make the Booty!
My absolute favorite exercise with the Kettlebell is the Kettlebell Swing. One, it is a complete body move (if you do it correctly ;)). And two, it tones/shapes/lifts the butt like no other! Honestly, add Kettlebell Swings to your training and you will be thanking me when you put on those jeans!!
3.Strength and Cardio in One!
I love that I can use a Kettlebell not only for the strength portion of my workout like squats, deadlifts, pressing, etc. But I can use it as my cardio as well. As I said above, swings are my favorite exercise and I can use that exercise in an interval workout for anywhere to 10-20 minutes, getting my heart rate up. Again, I am then able to get my training in in under 30 minutes, if need be.
I have been training with Kettlebells since 2001 and even though I have used many more different tools/equipment over the past 14 years, I always go back to the awesome Kettlebell.
