The Kettlebell workout has quickly risen to popularity from celebrities to mixed martial artists to the guy next door all claiming that they have finally found the perfect workout and do you know what? They are right. The Kettlebell workout is fast, effective and will kick your butt from here to Sunday. Through this article I will outline the benefits of a Kettlebell workout.
1. Even the most basic exercise used with a Kettlebell enables a high number of small muscles and connectors creating a more all around workout in the fastest amount of time. Take the Kettlebell swing which affects the arms, legs, back, shoulder and a ton of smaller muscles in the one simple motion. The Kettlebell forces all of your smaller muscles to come to life in order to perform both the exercise that you are doing while at the same time making sure that you are balance and stable. By working both your core muscles and stabilizer muscles you are going to benefit in all sorts of way and reach your ideal physique a lot more quickly.
2. Kettlebell workouts save a ton of time. A basic gym workout consists of going from machine to machine and hoping the line ups are not too long so that you can get out of there within a hour. With a Kettlebell workout you are combining strength training with cardio on a large number of muscles at one time so there is no use for ten different machines to hit your core muscle groups. Here is a recent comment made by celebrity fitness trainer Missy Beaver about her client Katherine Heigel workout schedule “With Katherine’s busy schedule, Kettlebell workouts are perfect because in 20-minute sessions you get a cardio, strength and flexibility workout that would take hours at the gym."
3. No bulky equipment required. If you are like me I hate working out at the gym as I seem to be focused on everything but my workout but the problem use to be all of the home gym equipment does not fit very well into my small apartment. When a friend first introduced me to Kettlebells the first thing to cross my mind, after the doubt went away, is how easy it would be to store this piece of exercise equipment and as long as I did not drop them could workout rather well in my living room.
The Kettlebell workout is able to get your body into great shape quickly, effectively and for all of the disbelievers if your gym does not have Kettlebells already they will very soon.
