Gym Equipment: Kettlebells
Anyone familiar with the gym has seen these workout tools at some point.
If you’re curious to know what workouts you can do with kettlebells, keep reading!
Kettlebells are essentially just weights. They help you work on strength, balance, and endurance. You can use them in many ways to make your workout a bit more intense.
If you want to work on your core, kettlebells are great! They allow you to move in various ways such as twisting, turning, and bending which allow for a more stimulating workout.
When you swing the kettlebells around, you have to be conscious of your movement and your body. This means that you are in total control and are focused. This can be compared to the regular barbells that don’t allow for full circular movements.
Adding weights to your workout can aid in fat loss. Swinging the kettlebells can burn as much as 20 calories per minute! Using kettlebells intensifies your workout, which means you’ll also be burning calories after you’ve finished working out.
If you’re not much of a runner, using kettlebells is also a great alternative to traditional cardio.
