Kettlebell Workout Routines For Rapid Fat Loss And Huge Health Gains

By Chris Rivers
A kettle bell is a cast iron, ball-shaped weight (usually 5lbs or greater) that is suspended from a handle. It was developed in Russia during the 18th century for the purpose of strength training. However, kettlebell workout routines continue to be an effective tool for building strength and cardiovascular fitness to this day.

The kettle-bell weights are designed so that when they are lifted, the body is forced to use the muscles that are normally utilized in everyday activities. For example, a person may feel as though they are carrying grocery bags when lifting the weights. This activity helps to strengthen these essential muscles in the body plus others that may not be used as much.

Kettlebell exercises typically include a series of one and two handed swings, lifts, and presses. These movements are usually coupled with lunges, side steps, and abdominal twists. The alternating motions put the body through a series of natural, fluid movements that mimic daily actions and chores such as shoveling snow or doing yard work.

Kettle bell exercise also promotes endurance, balance, cardiovascular fitness, and strength building. The dynamic range of motion involved engages the arms, legs, and core all at once.

The result is a full body workout in a fraction of the time necessary to hone in on each muscle group independently. There is also the added benefit that only one piece of equipment is required to achieve this total body workout.

The implementation of regular kettlebell routines into a workout session provides full body strength training and simultaneously promotes cardiovascular fitness. Additionally, there is a minimal chance of injury provided the weight of the kettlebell is within the user’s comfort level and the user is practicing controlled movements. Where duration is concerned, the user will achieve a total body workout in less time than it would take for the same results without the use of a kettlebell because of the dynamics of the routine.
