Getting Into Shape With Kettlebells

By Mike Sherman

Would you like to lose a few pounds and get into shape? There aren't many people who would turn down the opportunity to improve their body and become healthier so chances are that you're interested. If so, kettlebell exercises may be a good option for you. Kettlebells are increasing in popularity and are a fun way to get into shape.

Kettlebells are made in the shape of a cannonball and have a handle on them. They were first used in Russia, where they are called girya. While they have been around for a long time, they are starting to become popular again.

So, you might be wondering how to start doing kettlebell exercises. It really isn't that tough. You simply pick them up and then place them back down. It's not the most thrilling thing you'll ever do. However, that is the focus of most exercise routines so it shouldn't surprise you too much.

But what separates kettlebells from other exercise regimens is its versatility. They can range in weight anywhere from 4 to 175 pounds. You will probably get started with the lighter ones. But the key of kettlebell exercises it that you whole body is involved. Normal weights only work out a small portion of your body at once while swinging kettlebells works out your entire body. It is a full body workout that will get you results.

The secret is that kettlebells are what are called "ballistic" exercises, which comprises lifting weights with an accelerating motion, instead of lifting weights and putting them down slowly, which is how most strength training exercises are completed. This way, kettlebell exercises cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training all at one time. This way, you can do everything at once, saving you time and getting you the body you're looking for. That's pretty neat.
