Other moves like the deadlift and full cleans/snatches have been the top exercises for working the entire body in one movement. Kettlebells are often preferred over these moves for being safer than using a bar.
Functional exercise at its best.
While a lot of machines and certain exercises train our muscles individually, kettlebell exercises train your body as a whole; utilizing almost every muscle group working together.
This carries over into everyday life, because our bodies rarely use muscles in isolation, instead, they work in conjunction with each other to more efficiently perform tasks, prevent injuries, and build strength. Kettlebells train your entire body to perform at its best.
If you spend most of your day sitting, you owe it to your body to strengthen your core and improve cardiovascular health with this no-impact tool.
The best single exercise.
Burn a crapload of calories, scorch fat, build muscle, boost your endurance, while also improving your posture and preventing lower back pain—meet the kettlebell swing.
Incorporate cardiovascular, resistance, functional, AND flexibility training into your already busy schedule. Kettlebell movements will develop strength, endurance and flexibility at the same time, faster than any other method.
The four basic exercises (swing, clean, press, and snatch), can be used two or three times per week with variations to keep you strong, lean, and engaged.
The swing is king.
The kettlebell swing is a hinge movement, not a squat. This means that the move originates with the hips, not the knees. Every muscle in your body is involved in every rep, with a specific emphasis on the entire posterior chain.
Learning the swing correctly is the most important thing. If done right you gain all these benefits, done wrong you risk injury. We see many pictures and videos online that show the swing, unfortunately, incorrectly. All clients must start with beginner bells class or 1-on-1 sessions to learn and perfect this movement (even if you have past experience).
