The Kettlebell is a heavy cast iron or steel ball with a handle on top, which is often made out of steel or iron. It is primarily used to do various forms of kettlebell exercises, which include dynamic strength, cardiovascular workouts and flexible work out. The kettlebell has been around for centuries and is one of the first fitness tools used by man. This is in part due to its strong man made construction and because of its exceptional strength and endurance. Kettlebell training is not only ideal for toning your body but it is also great for improving your martial arts skills.
One of the main reasons that you should incorporate the kettlebells into your fitness regimen is that it provides you with an excellent cardio workout that gets your heart rate up and generates high-intensity workout. In fact, this form of workout is so intense that many professional athletes use them as a pre-game workout to get ready for their big game. This is because the kettlebells require you to use a good amount of bells throughout the workout session to get the kind of workout that will really challenge your body and challenge your lungs. Therefore, this form of exercise is ideal for a doctor first class fit body.
Kettlebells are excellent for increasing your athletic strength and power. They work out your entire body and develop core muscles that improve your total endurance levels. Some experts even say that kettlebells are the closest thing to a complete gym fitness machine that you can get your hands on. With this kind of fitness equipment you have more than just your workouts, you have your whole body working for you at the same time. As a result, you are developing lean muscle mass and getting stronger with each workout.
One of the exercises that is most often used with kettlebells to build strength and add to athletic performance is the Turkish Get Up. The exercise is done by using both hands and the front of your body to bring your knees up to your chest and your head down. Then using your non-padded hand, bring the top of your head down to your chest and allow it to come back up again. Next, keep your arms straight and slowly go to the bottom of the squat and repeat. Do twenty to thirty repetitions three times and you should feel a significant burn in your hip hinge and hamstrings.
Another important exercise that many experts include in their workout routines is the Turkish Squat. This drill is basically the same as the one above but instead of holding the bell in your hand, the trainee does a seated row. This is done by taking a dumbbell in each hand and standing in front of a chair or table. The trainee then takes one arm across his or her chest and places the other hand under his chin. Next, the trainee should grip the dumbbells at shoulder width and turn them over to the other side, keeping his or her arms locked.
In addition to the above mentioned exercises, a related story that I want to share with you about kettlebells and weight lifting is about my friend. One day, he took me to his gym to show me how he was using weight machines there. While I was there, I asked him if he knew how to do a squat.
He told me that he did not, in fact, know how to do a squat. As a matter of fact, he did not even know what a squat was. He said that he was using some Russian gear at the gym and thought that I should learn more about the sport before I showed up. I suggested that he talk to a professional trainer and he said that he would teach me later that evening. That night, as a surprise, he had me perform some squat exercises on the equipment and was very pleased with the results.
My friend’s experience with kettlebells and kettlebell training has caused me to rethink some things about strength training and getting into better shape. I have come to the conclusion that kettlebells can be a very powerful tool for your personal fitness program. They allow you to target large groups of muscles at once, which is much more effective than traditional free weights. I highly recommend trying them out.
