What an old piece of equipment with so much value. I’ve only recently started to love these things mostly because of being forced to pick minimal equipment and maximum value (quarantine life). Let’s talk about four benefits of kettlebell training you may not have known.
Stability Training The constant change in center of gravity. This challenges your core and postural muscles in a way that static dumbbell training does not
Grip Strength The nature of the handle may not allow you have a fully closed grip, which is challenging. Plus the swinging of the body of the weight will provide a constant challenge to your forearm muscles! Bring on the rope climbs and monkey bars after this!
Space Savers How about convenience? These things weights can be smaller than classic dumbbells. Also, the amount and variety of exercises make them a great investment for what you pay No gym? No problem. Small living space? Also fine.
Power Exercises The natural inclusion of cardiovascular with power movements makes a quicker paced workouts and throws in a little cardio work! What do I mean? Goblet squat = strength, slow paced, not so aerobic. On the other hand, a one arm swing = hip thrust, fast paced, stable shoulders, power production and aerobic training!
