While not nearly as well known as traditional barbell and dumbbells, kettlebell weights can be one of the best-selling and (dare we say it) fun pieces of workout equipment you will come across. The simple, easy to use design belies the tremendous variety of uses this ancient device has been put to in the fitness arena. It is so diverse that there is one style of kettlebell that is perfect for every taste and every need. If you want to work your chest, shoulders, triceps, biceps, leg strength, and even your core, you can do it with the right kind of bell.
If you are new to the world of kettlebells or need a refresher course, here are some of the best kettlebell exercises you can start working with today. The first exercise that comes to mind when most people think of this ancient device is the double arm kettlebell snatch. It is performed by laying on your back with one arm secured behind your head and the other out in front. With your free arm, grab the handles of the kettlebell in either a palms up position or palms down position. Bring the bell back to your body by bending your elbow (keeping your elbow bent will force you to keep your back straight and perform a more efficient exercise) and then raise the bell overhead as high as you can.
This exercise works the entire chest muscles in an explosive movement. Since it is performed at the highest point of your strength range, it forces you to bring the weights as high as you can without taking any risks. This is the first of many workouts using the best adjustable dumbbells for beginners that you will perform. For the next workout, I recommend the following:
The second exercise that I want you to focus on for your Kettlebell workouts is called the swinging bird. To perform this exercise, you will stand in front of a doorway with both hands held onto the handles. Then, extend both legs out in front of you and take one step to each side with your left leg, while your right leg moves to meet the other foot. Slowly walk forward into the door while swinging both legs out in front of you (keeping your shoulders width apart) until the handles of the weights can be felt on your shoulders. Slowly swing out into a forward lunge, and then back down slowly and repeat for the entire workout for the best adjustable weights.
The final exercise we’re going to look at for the best adjustable weights workout for beginners is called the clean and press. To perform this exercise, you will place a barbell on your chest, then squat down to the floor and hold it up over your head. Keep your elbows straight, then slowly lower the bar down to your chest in a steady motion. Repeat this motion for the suggested number of repetitions, and then switch to the modified snatch lift by lowering the bar to your knee before lifting it up over your head again. These are the five best Kettlebell workouts for beginners that I have found online.
The first workout was performed for approximately four hours ago. I’m going to go over this one now and explain some of the things I noticed in the kettlebell exercises that were performed. First off, I’m not sure if you have noticed, but there is a lot more weight on when you do these exercises than when you just do standard free-weight workouts. When you first start out, this is alright because you are still building up your strength. When I first started, I didn’t really notice any gains in my strength.
About an hour ago, I did a lot of research and came across the Kettlebell workouts for the military and then the Amazon Warrior. After doing the military, I was impressed with the lifts and even more impressed with the fact that they only use kettlebells. It took about three days of lifting with the kettlebells to equal what I would have used with dumbbells for about an hour a day. I was very impressed with the deals and offers that Amazon was showing and I got a free book by James Schmitz. I’ve been using this free book and it has really helped me with my programming.
The third workout I performed for the Amazon Warrior was for an hour a day, three days a week. After doing this, my deadlift has increased to 24 kg and my squats have increased to about a hundred two kilograms. It took about a month to reach my goals, but I’ve kept to my daily deals with Amazon and am on my way to being a professional bodybuilder. This is how I’ve done with my kettlebell training for the last twenty-one months.
