Kettlebell training is a relatively new form of fitness training that has received huge amounts of praise in the fitness world.
The reasons for this is that the unique nature of kettlebell exercises allows them to benefit the body in ways that many other exercises cannot.
In this article I’ll be expanding on this topic and providing you with a full overview of the many benefits kettlebell training can provide.
When you lift, pull and swing kettlebells, your body has to work hard to maintain your center of gravity. This helps to develop a strong sense of balance which improves your athletic performance in other areas and also makes performing day to day tasks much easier.
Full Body Conditioning
Barbell and dumbbell exercises are designed to target specific muscle groups. As a result, you need to perform multiple barbell and dumbbell exercises to ensure that you’re working every muscle in your body.
Kettlebell exercises work in a different way and bring all your muscles into play. This allows you to easily condition your entire body in a single workout or even by performing multiple reps of a single kettlebell exercise.
Enhanced Cardiovascular Fitness
As mentioned above, kettlebell training is an excellent tool for firing up your cardiovascular fitness. By working out with kettlebells regularly, your heart and lungs will become stronger, your cells will become more efficient at utilizing oxygen and your overall energy levels and endurance will increase significantly.
Increased Core Stability
Every single kettlebell moves engages the core muscles in the center of your body and helps to strengthen and stabilize them. This improved core strength and stability provides you with a solid foundation when performing other exercises and also enhances your posture and prevents chronic pain.
Increased Fat Loss
Kettlebell movements are one of the most efficient fat burning exercises around and blast through a substantial 1,200 calories per hour. With just three hours of kettlebell training per week, you can work off an additional 1lb of body fat.
In addition to this, the muscle building properties of kettlebells indirectly support your fat loss efforts. Muscle cells require three times more calories than fat cells to maintain, so the more muscle you build through kettlebell training, the more fat your body will naturally burn.
No other form of exercise torches calories at such an impressive rate while also developing your muscles and this makes kettlebell training one of the top fat loss tools.
