Why You Should Consider Kettlebell Workouts

I have been using a 5kg kettlebell in my workout routine for a while now, so recently I upped the weight and got myself an 8kg and 12kkg. I suspect that using the 12kg for goblet squats will leave me gasping for air.

Trying to figure out which workout will be best for your situation can be difficult. This is especially true when you are trying to work it out on your own and especially for those of us who prefer to work out at home. One of the options you may consider are kettlebell workouts. There are several benefits to choosing a kettlebell workout plan that you can keep in mind, and that may weigh out over other options available to you.

Versatile Workouts

The key benefit of choosing a kettlebell workout is the versatility of the workouts available. If you want to focus on just one part of the body, like your upper body and arms, then you can. If you would rather do a full body workout, you can do that as well. You can do this all with just one kettlebell and work your way up to larger kettlebells for different body workouts or full body as well. You can also work just your core with the kettlebells if that is something you would rather do.

Beginner Friendly

If you are new to kettlebell workouts, or working out in general, then you should know a benefit of kettlebells is they are beginner friendly. There really is no learning curve with this workout that requires special training. You can learn some workouts from a DVD, show, or from a live coach. The key is that you can learn the moves in one session and use them throughout your workouts. For the most part, it is easy to start and easy to upgrade without spending extra time and energy or worry about if you will get the workout that you need and the weight loss you want.

Easily Accessible Workouts

When you start a new workout plan, you may be concerned about accessing workouts. Some workouts are through gyms and require that you are available for certain class times, for example. With a kettlebell workout you can access workouts through your gym or from the comfort of your home. Most kettlebell sessions are online either through free streaming, live streaming through local gyms, or even through DVD sessions. You can choose when, where, and how you workout and that is a huge benefit for many people with busy schedules.

Quickly increase strength, torch the fat and balance

 A kettlebell’s weight is not distributed evenly like it is with dumbbells. This creates the need to counterbalance and stabilize your body during kettlebell exercises, which are amazing for core strength, balance, and coordination.

Kettlebells are known to improve overall strength, core power, balance, flexibility, and coordination while also melting fat and sculpting healthy and lean muscles. Because a kettle bell has an off-set center of gravity, usually about 6 to 8 inches away from your grip on the handle, it is harder to control. So, any kettlebell exercises are going to require strict and controlled form and body mechanics.

The combined benefits of a kettlebell workout are not just limited to your body. You can also reap financial benefits and benefits if you are using kettlebells in a small space. They are versitle and affordable enough to buy as you need an upgrade as well.

Make sure you are warming up and stretching before using some of these explosive and bigger moves, as you don’t want to injure yourself. Always watch a video to help with proper body mechanics and to perfect each move in order to get the best out of these kettlebell exercises.
