It looks like a solid cast iron kettle without a spout. It started life in rural Russia as a counterbalance for weighing grain. Today it is regarded by fitness experts as the ultimate training tool for all-round fitness and physical development.
Unlike a conventional dumbbell or barbell, the Kettlebell’s centre of mass is displaced from the handle. This means the weight constantly pulls against your hand and requires not only strength and co-ordination when exercising with it, but also the recruitment of other muscles through your arms, shoulders and trunk.
The Kettlebell is very user-friendly. You can start off by simply carrying a Kettlebell around for a period every day: lifting it, swinging it, passing it from hand to hand. As your strength and coordination develop you can move on to routines, exercises and heavier weights.
Everyone can benefit from a regular Kettlebell workout: from those who just want to look and feel good, to elite athletes of all kinds. Primarily a Kettlebell workout will develop your all-important body core – back, hips and trunk. You’ll also burn fat and use your whole body to control the Kettlebell, strengthening arms and legs.
The overall result will be increased strength, flexibility, timing, muscle tone and general body conditioning. Elite athletes can use advanced exercises and techniques to target various muscle groups and movement patterns.
