Fitmark Ambassador Jennifer Slovinski explains how kettlebell training is more effective than you may know
If you’ve been eyeballing those quirky, cannon ball looking weights at the gym, but still haven’t tried them, I hope this will convince you to give them a try. Kettlebell training is a great way to add variety to your workouts.
Kettlebell workouts are the quickest and most effective way to burn calories, shed fat, and build muscle. You’ll recruit multiple muscles during each exercise. The more muscles you use to perform an exercise, the more calories you burn. Not only are you torching more calories, but you’re building muscle too. High intensity strength training with kettlebells maximizes your efforts, giving you quicker results in far less time.
If you are like me, and don’t have hours a day to train and workout, but want to look like you train for hours (and look amazing in those skinny jeans!) kettlebells are the answer.
By doing kettlebell workouts you can also quickly build endurance, flexibility, strength, balance, and aerobic capacity faster than traditional weight training or long, drawn out cardio activities such as running on the treadmill or being immersed in high intensity elliptical training. So what are you waiting for? The next time you are at the gym, and wondering what to do grab some kettlebells and let’s go! You will get a great cardio workout in as well as a great strength training workout.
