8 Reasons Why Kettlebells Rule

If you’re short on time and want a great body without having to spend hours working out, then kettlebells should be part of your training routine.  Here are eight reasons why kettlebells rule:

  1. KBs work your entire body:  upper body (arms, shoulders, upper back), mid-body “core” (lower back, and abdominals and obliques),  lower body (glutes, hamstrings, and quads).
  2. They work your heart and lungs and improve cardiovascular conditioning.  You can do swings and snatches for high rep counts (10, 20, 30, …) or timed sets.
  3. They don’t require much time (20-30 minutes, 3-5 sessions per week) or  space (a 5×5 foot area) or equipment (a 35lb. KB for men or a 25lb. KB for women) to get in a results producing workout.
  4. You can do variety of exercises: squats, presses, swings, cleans, snatches, windmills, get-ups; the list goes on.
  5. They improve these fitness attributes:  strength, power, endurance, coordination, and explosiveness.
  6. You will increase flexibility and range of motion in your shoulders and hamstrings.
  7. KBs involve dynamic exercises that improve your coordination and spatial awareness.
  8. They develop both your aerobic and anaerobic energy systems.
