The Kettlebell is one of the most coveted and widely used weight training tools around. Its design of a steel ball shaped weight attached to a steel handle allows for an abundance of different exercises that not only work multiple muscle groups at the same time, but, also allows one to get into an anaerobic state while working out.
An anaerobic state is a workout “without oxygen”, where the person is literally gasping for air during exercise. This state is typically induced during interval training and Kettlebell workouts and is one of the most effective ways to burn fat and rev metabolism for 24 plus hours following a workout.
10 Benefits Of Kettlebell Training:
- 3 In 1 Workout – Combining weight training with a cardio workout, Kettlebell circuits improve heart health, build lean muscle mass and are highly effective at fat burning. That’s three birds killed with one stone of a great workout!
- High Calorie Burning – An hour spent on a treadmill or cross trainer will burn around 600 calories, but, training with kettlebells can help you burn up to 1200 calories in that same hour.
