While not nearly as well known as conventional barbell and dumbbell exercises, kettlebell weights make up one of the most flexible and (dare we say it) fun types of workout gear you will find. Kettlebells for sale come in many forms and configurations. For example, you can get traditional weight stacks that can wait anywhere from one to five pounds. You also can get one of the newer “hybrid” variations that combine the functions of both a kettlebell and a dumbbell. In addition, you can even buy an adjustable kettlebell for use over various platforms such as a table or even your bed.
Adjustable Kettlebells for sale comes in two basic types, with the traditional two increment weight ranges and the new hybrid three and four increment weights. The traditional two increment kettlebell weights have a predefined weight range. As the name suggests, when you purchase a kettlebell of this type, the weights come in increments of two. This means that for every two pounds over which the bell is affixed, there are two increments on the bell.
Kettlebell Weights can be either free-hand or inclines grip, but they are often best left leaning against the wall. To use the handles properly, you must assume the natural swinging position of the kettlebell when holding it overhead. If you attempt to swing the bell through the air while leaning against the wall, you will end up using far more strength than you intended. The best way to master using kettlebell weights for sale is to master the proper grip and how to hold them properly.
A common way to hold these weights is to place the bottom handle of the unit at a right angle to your dominant hand. Keep in mind that if you hold the handle of the unit horizontally or at an angle away from your dominant hand, you will not be able to do compound exercises. Another way to hold the handle of the unit is to place the bottom handle at an angle where your dominant hand touches the floor when you lean to lift the handle vertically. The reason you must ensure correct grip strength is that you will be lifting extremely heavy weights and more importantly, extremely fast weights. There are a number of ways to hold the handle of a 36-pound adjustable kettlebell and I would suggest picking one method and sticking with it for at least a few weeks.
There are many cons associated with the use of this equipment and the most obvious would be the lack of grip strength. The handle of a Kettlebell should be held at an angle where it is not likely to slip off of your hands. This should be done so as to avoid any slip-ups that can occur due to the uneven weight range. Another problem that could arise would be the difficulty in determining which direction the weight was being pulled. Again, this should be avoided to prevent any possible injuries such as straining the muscles in your arms and forearms.
One of the biggest pro’s and con’s of using Kettlebell Weights are the large weight range it offers you. The combinations that you can execute with this piece of fitness equipment are limited only by your imagination. With the wide weight range, you are able to perform reps with ease and be performed in a variety of ranges. In addition, due to the fact that you are performing heavy weights, you are developing muscular endurance and improving your overall stamina.
Kettlebell workouts also allow you to execute very intense overhead movements such as cleans, snatches, jerks, and squats with perfect form. These movements are not possible to execute when using dumbbells or other free-weight counterparts. Also, Kettlebell workouts often require you to execute extremely fast and explosive movements such as single-leg squats and lunges. All of these movements to aid in improving your running performance, creating great balance and stability while creating explosive power.
Kettlebell Weights is an excellent way to build strong pecs and shoulder muscles as well as increasing your flexibility and core strength. However, they have some drawbacks that make them a great option for those who are looking for an all-around workout. One of the main drawbacks associated with using Kettlebell Weights is the fact that it requires a lot of willpower and discipline to keep going when you are tired and having an unending supply of weight on your chest. If you are someone who doesn’t have the motivation to continue when you are tired, then this is not the right workout for you. Still, even though they require a great deal of willpower and discipline, they are by far one of the best workout options available.
