What are Kettlebells?:

If you've never heard of kettlebells, you aren't alone. Although this piece of strength and conditioning equipment has been around for decades, only in the last few years has it caught the attention of athletes across North America.

Kettlebells are cannon ball-sized cast iron weights with a looped handle on top. Kettlebells range in weight from two pounds to over 100 pounds.

What's So Great About Kettlebells?:

The reason for the boost in kettlebell training it that it gets back to basic training that requires functional, whole body fitness. Kettlebells require an athlete to focus on whole-body conditioning because lifting and controlling a kettlebell forces the entire body, and specifically the core, to contract as a group, building both strength and stability at the same time. Kettlebell workouts engage multiple muscle groups at once. In this way, they are a great option for getting a whole body workout in a short time.

Kettlebell Safety:

It's important to start slow and get some training when using kettlebells. When used incorrectly, kettlebells can cause some nasty injuries. Proper use of this cast iron weight requires strength, coordination and lots of practice with a light weight before increasing weight. Each kettlebell exercise involves multiple joints and many muscle groups working together. It takes most athletes time to adjust to these new movement patterns that are often different than traditional weight-lifting moves. To master these movement patterns requires guidance , instruction and patience. After the basics are mastered, increasing the weight provides a strength workout unmatched by machines or even dumbbells.

The biggest mistake beginners make is lifting too heavy a kettlebell before they can control it. This can result in serious injuries to the joints, and especially the neck, back and spine.
