Why should you Train With Kettlebells?
“New research sponsored by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) demonstrates that kettlebell training significantly boosts aerobic capacity, while also improving core strength and dynamic balance. ”
They are practical
Kettlebells are practical because they work more than one physical attribute at a time. They combine the benefits of muscle toning, cardiovascular conditioning, and muscular endurance, leading to increased strength and power, improved flexibility and range of motion, fat loss, increased lean muscle mass, reduced stress, and increased confidence! Now who doesn't want all of that!
The versatility of the kettlebell as a strength and conditioning tool is without parallel. The deep eccentric loading that occurs when swinging the kettlebell between legs develops a powerful hip thrust extension that is fundamental to all kinds of athletic movements, including running, jumping, squatting, lunging, and kicking, and it strengthens and shapes the gluteal muscles (aka butt, which who doesn't love that), developing a healthy lower back and improved posture.
Kettlebells are quite unique. The kettlebell design of a ball with a handle allows your client to do not only traditional weightlifting maneuvers, such as the press, clean and jerk, snatch, and squat, but also unorthodox skills, such as kettlebell juggling. Because the load of the ball is off center from the handle, unlike in a dumbbell, where the load is in line with the handle, even the most basic kettlebell movements cause you to work through a larger range of motion, increasing the flexibility and mobility demands of the exercise. Plus you get to look like a badass throwing a metal ball around.
Kettlebell training is efficient, because it combines the benefits of strength training, anaerobic and aerobic cardiovascular training. You will never again have to spend hours each week going from weight training one day to aerobic training the next, which will leave you with a lot more time to do the things you also want to do. With kettlebell training, it is all done at the same time, BOOM!
Kettlebell training will help you develop all the major athletic attributes, including strength, power, mobility, balance, agility, coordination, endurance, and stamina. You know you want it.
Fun and Easy to Learn
Kettlebell strength training movements are functionally natural movements that everyone uses everyday which makes everyday seem easier after a kettlebell workout. Plus you can learn everything there is to learn in a few months if you have a good coach.
