The History of KettleBells

Kettlebells are believed to have originated in Russia in the mid-1800s, but some say they go back much earlier than that, originating in Spartan times when handles were embedded into cinder blocks in order to help carry them around. Since the spherical weights were introduced into the fitness world, which became popular in America by former Soviet Special Force trainer, Pavel Tsatsouline, who believed that with a kettlebell, you can do the same movements as you would with a dumbbell, only better and more efficient.

The great thing about Kettlebell weights is you can add resistance to exercises during your normal workouts for abs, core, chest, back, legs, shoulders – almost every body part.  Kettlebells have been around for a very long time, and have become a big part of functional training with new adaptive exercises.  Kettlebell workouts for women and men can help achieve fitness goals quicker when used properly.

5 Reasons to Start Kettlebell Training Today

1. Kettlebells are an excellent form of exercise.

When you add kettlebell training to your exercise program, you will notice your heart rate come up quickly. It is a great way to add fat burning cardio to your workout. And even better, these cast iron weights help make the decision easier of “Do I do cardio or strength today?” With kettlebells, you get both.

2. Kettlebells are easier on the body.

Kettlebell workouts generally move at a continual pace from one exercise to the next. When done properly, there is a smooth transition from one exercise to the next, which is a low impact on the body. Unlike with plyometrics where there can be a greater impact on the joints. Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with plyometrics at all, in fact they are highly useful in sports training, but if done incorrectly, jumping can sometimes break down the joints. Kettlebells, because of the fluid swinging motion and movement, do not impact the joints as much.

3. Kettlebells workouts are a good form of functional training.

Now, exactly what does that mean? Kettlebells are a great tool for developing good cardiorespiratory condition as well as muscular endurance. Exercise that increases the use of mobility, coordination, and balance to increase strength and endurance is a sound definition of functional training.

4. Kettlebells can be combined with other workouts

Weight lifting for strength and power, HIIT, and lots of other types of exercise can have kettlebell training incorporated into your workout. Thanks to the size and versatility of kettlebells, most lifts and swings can be added to all types of exercise regimens and classes. Exercises such as cleans and deadlifts, to kettlebell exercises that specifically work the arms, shoulders, and back can all be incorporated safely and easily into your workout

5. Kettlebells can conveniently be used anywhere.

Having bulky exercise equipment in your home is just not practical. And you certainly cannot travel with it. But with kettlebells, you can use them and store them quite easily. Just tuck them away under a bed or in a closet when not in use. Bringing your workout with you when you travel is easy too. Just pack a couple of kettlebells in your luggage and your hotel room becomes a mini gym, ready for a full body workout you will enjoy.

Picking Your Weight

Choosing a weight that is comfortable for you is one of the most important things when beginning kettlebell training. If you are doing single arm and double arm swings, be sure to pick a weight that you can handle safely. If you are doing cleans, snatches, or goblet squats you may want to increase the weight to something a little more challenging. Start out easy and increase as you become good at your kettlebell exercises. Kettlebells are a fun, high-intensity workout that can be done safely.

5 Best Kettlebell Full Body Exercises

Goblet Squats

From the start position: Stand holding a light kettlebell by the horns close to your chest. Squat down to at least a 90 degree angle or until your hamstrings are on your calves. This depends on your level of flexibility. Keep your chest and head up and your back straight. Press through your heels and complete the squat at the start position.

Kettlebell Cleans

The Kettlebell Clean takes the kettlebell from the floor and into the racked position, up onto the chest, in one fluid motion. It should be smooth and not bang the wrist, forearm or chest. From this racked position you can then: Press, Lunge, Squat, or do another clean.

Quick Tips:

  • Ensure the Thumb is Pointing Backwards
  • Load the Rear of the body by driving from the heels
  • Keep the bell close as if facing a wall
  • Snap the hips and don’t use the arm
  • Rotate the arm around the bell and not the other way around
  • The bell moves up and down in a vertical path
  • Engage the Lat muscle by squeezing the armpit at the top of the move
  • Keep it smooth and do not bang the arm

Kettlebell Snatches

Place a kettlebell on the floor between your feet. Bend your knees and push your butt down and back to get in the proper starting position.

Keep your head in a neutral position looking straight ahead and swing the kettlebell back between your legs. Immediately reverse the direction and drive through with your hips and knees, accelerating the kettlebell upward. As the kettlebell rises to your shoulder rotate your hand and punch straight up, using momentum to receive the weight locked out overhead.

Kettlebell Suitcase Deadlifts

With the kettlebell on the floor at your side, squat down as low as you can. Keep your butt low and your back as straight as possible. Grip the kettlebell with the hand on the side of the kettlebell. While holding the kettlebell, and head in a neutral position, press through your heels while driving your hips forward until you are standing straight up and down. Lower the bell to the starting position and repeat for desired repetitions. Then switch to the other side for an equal amount of reps.

Kettlebell Swings

Place a kettlebell between your feet. Bend your knees and push your butt back to get in the proper starting position. Look straight ahead and swing the kettlebell back between your legs. Immediately reverse the direction and drive through with your hips and knees, accelerating the kettlebell upward to about chest level. Allow the kettlebell to return to the start position between your legs on the same plane of motion.
