The Advantages of Kettlebells
I’m sure most of you would have heard of a kettlebell by now? If not here is a brief description on what a kettlebell is and the benefits.
A kettlebell is a traditional Russian training tool that looks like a cannon ball with a handle on. This shape allows unique positioning of the weight directly above your centre mass (unlike a Dumbell which must be held in front of the body).
This allows you to keep your hand and wrist in a neutral alignment which enables for greater endurance in the core lifts! kettlebell training involves multiple muscle groups and energy systems so it really is the ultimate conditioning work out.
We (The-Trainers-Edge) have had great results from our clients using this fantastic conditioning tool.
