Weight Loss and Kettlebell Training - Why It Works!

A kettlebell is a cast iron weight resembling a canon ball that is used to perform ballistic exercises that combine strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness that make you SWEAT! They are not as scary as they may first appear and once you get into the swing ( mind the pun! ) of it you will get a workout unlike any other you have ever experienced.

Training with the kettlebell has become increasingly popular over the last few years. People are finding that they are reaching weight loss goals quicker, getting fitter faster and saving hours of gym boredom by exchanging machines for kettlebells.

Here are 6 reasons you should be training with kettlebells...

1. Kettlebells give you a true full body workout. You recruit all major muscle groups while performing fluid and challenging movements. More muscle recruitment = more WEIGHT LOSS. This means one exercise can work out your back, butt, legs, arms and core. Beats bicep curls hands down.

2. Kettlebell workouts cover all your bases by combining cardio with strength training. Because of this, kettlebell sessions are renowned for their intensity. This means you can say so-long to slogging it out on the cross trainer ( which won't get you anywhere! ) and hello to a new TONED you.

3. You will save HOURS of time. Forget slaving away in the gym all night, the intensity of kettlebell training means you can get away with as little as 20 minutes of training that will leave you beach ready and FIT as a fox. Trust me.

4. You will BURN MORE CALORIES. As mentioned above, this type of training recruits all major muscle groups and combines strength with cardio. The more muscles you use, the more calories you burn. The more muscle mass you gain, the more calories you burn at rest, meaning you will STILL be burning calories post workout when you're on the couch.

5. All you need is a kettlebell and enough room to swing a cat in. You can get a workout wherever takes your fancy... at home, in the park, at work, on the train... ( or not ) goodbye gym membership! Now you have no excuse to blitz your FAT LOSS goals.

6. It actually is fun. Because using working with a kettlebell means a whole new set of movements and challenges, it is actually enjoyable. Until the next day... you will get used to it though and as soon as you see the amazing RESULTS you will be hooked.
