We've got kettlebell exercises you can incorporate in your day-to-day routine.
Kettlebell training has been around for centuries, but it’s just now starting to get very popular. That’s because the simple circle and handle device gives you more results from your workout than most think. Usually in workouts, people focus on acceleration by moving quicker hoping to feel the burn. But in reality, speeding up your workout increases your chances of getting hurt.
So, what can you do with kettlebells? We've got some exercises to get you started.
3 Kettlebell Exercises
- The Hip Thrust: Just drop the kettlebell at your side, bend your knees and swing back and forth. Doing that 15 to 20 times will do the trick. But, keep those abs tight!
- The Press and Lift: This exercise is exactly what it sounds like. Place the kettlebell on the floor, lift to your shoulder and press over your head. Be sure to keep your back straight when lifting and don’t be afraid to give the kettlebell a solid swing! Simply do 8 to 10 repetitions with one arm before switching to the next.
- The Swing Around: This one is probably the most fun and works the core of your body, giving you that workout you crave. Swing it around the body switching hands. Lean away from the kettlebell for the most effective exercise. Don’t forget to switch directions.
When it’s all said and done, kettlebell exercises are about slowing down to work your muscles in the best way. Your body reacts best to workouts that are different from your normal routine. Switch it up a bit with kettlebell workouts!
