Tone It Up With Kettle Bells
Made out of cast iron, these cannonball-shaped weights with a single handle on top though look really different from the free weights and machines are undoubtedly one of the best and most efficient fitness tools one can make use of to tone up.
From the elite athlete looking for an edge, to the sedentary person looking to discover fitness for the first time kettle bell training offers
- Serious cardio without the boredom of the treadmill
- Functional strength without the monotony of isolated reps
- Flexibility without long poses
- Fun and varied, never boring.
- Combines “cardio” and “strength” trainingUnlike conventional weight training, kettle bell training unifies and focuses on full-body conditioning as the body learns to work as one synergistic unit linked strongly together. The solution is to think of your body as a collection of “muscle groups” rather than to be “isolated”. Kettle bell movement is never a single joint movement. Every swing, lift, or press engages many joints and muscle groups forcing the body to always work as a unified whole.Kettle bell training involves multiple muscle groups and energy systems at once and so improves mobility and range of motion. Since the brain understands joint actions and not “muscles” one becomes more coordinated with KB use. KB exercises train the body to work as a single unit. Increased strength without increase of mass, Kettle bell exercisers are lean and toned, not bulky—a benefit that appeals to women and men alike.The most common exercise for KB include:
• KB Swings
• KB Clean & Press
• KB High Pull
Busy people or couch potatoes cannot find a relevant excuse to miss their training if they have a date with the kettelbell schedule because of the intensive nature, the workout duration must be kept short.
So it can be the solution to trying to squeeze cardio, strength AND flexibility training in an already overbooked schedule.
One can’t just randomly pick up and mindlessly muscle it up and throw it around. At each moment the lifter must be focused and has to synchronize the movement. The result is improved coordination and mental focus
