You will activate your back, buttocks, hamstrings, core and shoulder muscles during this exercise. As with all kettle bell training exercises you should have mastered the single-handed clean and press before progressing to the double.
The double kettle bell lunge is the ultimate leg and glute mass developing exercise. The kettle bells for this exercise can either be held in the racked position as shown in the image above or down by your sides.
Holding the kettle bells up in the racked position on the chest is more challenging and will develop your core muscles more intensely due to the stability needed during the movement. The depth of the double kettle bell lunge is very important to fully activate the glutes.
The rear knee should drop as close to the floor as possible for maximum muscle activation. The single leg can be kept almost straight for more hamstring activation or bent for more glute involvement.
Most importantly, as with all dead lift exercises, the lower back must be kept flat and the core muscles braced tight. Keep the hips square throughout the exercise by not allowing the rear foot to rotate externally or outwards.
Warning, this exercise will produce muscle soreness (Does) if you are not familiar with the movement. The double kettle bell row is one of the best core and back mass developing exercises.
Beginners should start by mastering the single kettle bell row as shown in the image above. Keep your weight back on your heels with knees slightly bent to load the hamstrings and glute muscles.
Try to choose kettle bell weights that challenge you for the prescribed amount of repetitions, but do not push you to failure. Based on the dead lift movement pattern this kettle bell exercise will develop the glutes, legs, back and core muscles.
Stand tall at the top of the movement and brace the abs tight and squeeze the buttocks. The kettle bell thruster has the advantage of enabling you to press more weight than you could usually manage due to the momentum from the squat.
I would recommend that all beginners practice the double squat first before adding the press to the top of the movement. Keep the elbows tucked in nice and tight as you squat to avoid fatiguing the shoulders.
The depth of the squat is important in order to fully activate the buttocks or glute muscles. Keep your chest lifted and weight back on your heels with the knees pointing slightly outwards.
Above I have listed three balanced kettle bell workouts that you can use to add mass to your body. Building mass requires lifting heavy and using full body kettle bell exercises.
Due to a few trainers in the world, kettle bells have been exclusively associated with cardio and should be no heavier than 15 pounds. It doesn’t matter if it’s your body weight, a barbell, dumbbells, or kettle bells as long as there is a progression of lifting heavy weights often; your body will adapt by getting stronger.
You’re not going to grow unless you increase the time in which your muscles are being stimulated (and I’m not talking about a massage). Muscular growth is triggered by this, but won’t happen unless the next two pieces of the puzzle are in place.
Sure you can build muscle with thousands of calories of burgers and fries, but quality should always come first. The “right now” dictates that it’s not vitally important where the calories come from in terms of protein, fat, and carbs, but the long-term scope of your health should be your main driving force.
Rest is free, relatively easy to get, and is infinitely helpful at building your body. Your body goes hard to work at repairing and adapting to everything you did during your session to make sure you come back stronger tomorrow to handle whatever life throws at you.
When it comes to kettle bell exercises, few movements build muscle like the Double Clean & Press. With a combination of a hinge, pull, and press movement, you hit multiple, large muscle groups that will illicit growth (provided it’s the right amount of stimulus).
The Double Clean & Press can be manipulated in a number of ways during your training session to build your body such as, supersets combined with pull ups, ladders, timed sets, and more. Take the Double Kettle bell Front Squat for example; not only are you fighting the movement with your legs to get yourself back to standing after a nice deep squat, you’re also fighting the weights as they try to go in two separate directions.
The problem with kettle bells is that most movements don’t hit the horizontal push pattern; enter the Floor Press! My favorite variation as it keeps the time under tension a bit greater is the Seesaw Press.
Lie back flat and bring up both weights into a locked out position. Reverse the motion in a controlled manner so the kettle bells always meet in the middle.
Bonus tip: I like to elevate my hips to hit different parts of my chest and shoulders and incorporate the lower body into the exercise as well. Similar to the Seesaw Floor Press in that the kettle bells meet in the middle during a fluid motion, the Seesaw Row keeps the tension on the back (from lower to upper and everything in between), shoulders, biceps, and core.
The added benefit of this movement is that you’re in a constant (slight) hinge to stay in a position which taxes the glutes and quads. Double snatches build big, strong shoulders and backs.
Look at Olympic lifters and tell me that lifting heavy things overhead doesn’t build the upper body. By adding the twisting, squatting component to the movement, you recruit your entire body (less the arm without a kettle bell) and a ton of mobility.
You don’t need to go heavy with this one, but when you do (when you’re ready) you’ll see some amazing growth and the ability to lift heavier in other movements. When I went on a Bent Press rampage with moderate weight for low reps and high sets I saw my shoulders and triceps improve greatly while my overall mobility went through the roof.
If you don't associate kettle bell exercises with building muscle, well, that's understandable. But make no mistake: Kettle bells can be a huge ally in the quest for mass.
As I explained in my article Grind to Grow: Try Your Squats and Presses with Kettle bells,” part of the reason the kettle bell triggers newfound strength and muscle growth is because of its offset shape. It forces the body to stabilize its joints differently from barbells, dumbbells, and other traditional bodybuilding equipment.
This forces your muscles to contract differently than normal, and increases the demand placed upon them. Look no further than the extra depth that every lifter instantly discovers when they front squat with a pair of kettle bells in the rack position, versus a barbell across the back.
With this new and increased range of motion comes increased muscular growth in your legs, and strength in your entire torso, from the inside out, including the all-important core musculature. Best of all, the kettle bell lends itself to a simple, but very challenging programming.
This 12-week program requires only two kettle bells and time for three workouts a week. But after one time through it, you'll find yourself more muscular in all the areas that matter: shoulders, upper back, upper chest, arms, legs, and posterior chain.
Mechanical Tension: Lifting heavier weights for lower reps, similar to the way powerlifters train; think multiple sets of 2-5 reps. Muscular Damage: Lifting moderate weights for medium to higher reps, similar to the way bodybuilders train; think multiple sets of 8-20 reps. Metabolic Stress: Doing either high reps or complexes where you don't set the weight down, producing intense burning and the release of metabolites like lactate.
Swing (single or double kettle bell): Lower body pulling Start the program with a pair of matching kettle bells you can press approximately 4-6 times.
Your goal is to do as many sets of each exercise, with perfect form, as you can in that time. Then, when you're ready, clean the kettle bells back into the rack position and perform a set of front squats.
Your goal is to do as many sets of swings as you can, with perfect form, in that time. To start this phase, determine your rep max (RM) with both the military press and the front squat using your two trusty kettle bells.
Always round down the number of reps if you hit a decimal point in your math. Your goal is to do as many sets of each exercise, with perfect form, as you can in that time.
Clean the kettle bells to the rack position, then perform a set of military presses. Clean the kettle bells back into the rack position, and perform a set of front squats.
Do an RM test with your pair of kettle bells for the swing. If not, use these weeks to keep practicing with the one-handed swing, trying to build up to 20 reps per hand, each at chest height.
Your goal is to do as many sets of swings as you can, with perfect form, in that time. Once again, find your RM for the military press and the front squat.
There's one big difference in these workouts: You'll clean the kettle bells to the rack position and perform a set of military presses, followed immediately by one set of front squats. When your rest time is over, clean the kettle bells back into the rack position and repeat.
This slight variation may not seem like much, but it increases the time under tension you experience and triggers metabolic stress. *Your RM will drop due to fatigue as the sets progress.
By this point, you should be able to comfortably swing a pair of kettle bells. Do an RM test with your pair of kettle bells for the swing.
If not, keep on practicing with the one-handed swing, working up to 20 reps per hand, each at chest height. The amount of tension running through and across your abs will already be severe, especially combining the military presses and front squats in the same day.
However, if you can't live without ab training, I recommend you do hanging variations, like hanging leg raises, to decompress your spine from all the loading. Since this is a strength and muscle program, you need to eat a lot.
A tried-and-true starting point is to multiply your body weight (in pounds) by 15-20 for total calories. In my book, you can't beat the time-tested 30/40/30 split of protein/carbohydrates/fat when growth is the goal.
If you start putting on fatter than you'd like, cut back. Otherwise, your assignment is simple: Eat, sleep, lift, and grow.

In the last few years, kettle bells have gone from a popular but still somewhat esoteric strength-training obsession to being considered as a fundamental tool right alongside barbells, dumbbells, body weight, and machines. Case in point: After an interaction over social media, I recently had the opportunity to train Nicole Wilkins, a four-time CFBB Figure Olympia champion and a three-time CFBB Figure International champion, to dial in her form on the major kettle bell lifts.
On the contrary, there are plenty of ways to fit them in, depending on if you're in-season or off-season training and if you are looking to add muscle or lose fat. Secondary strength/volume: Single-arm standing or seated kettle bell presses, before a superset of dumbbell or cable lateral and front raises.
Burnout and/or cardio: Kettle bell snatches, 5-8 per arm at the top of each minute, to burn serious calories and boost shoulder strength, or heavier kettle bell swings to hammer the rear Delta while also building up the entire back side of your body. “ Kettle bell snatches and swings are just a great way to incorporate cardio into your routine and get your heart rate up,” she told me.
One of the biggest advantages of training with kettle bells is the ability to increase both mobility and stability throughout the joints that need one or the other. Maintaining joint mobility is a crucial part of staying injury free, because the inability to move through exercises with a full range of motion can be detrimental in your ability to get into the correct positions needed to lift safely.
Joint stability, on the other hand, is essential for being able to safely bear the load you're lifting, without one of your “weak links” raising the white flag. If you are looking to improve mobility and stability, the Turkish get-up is a great exercise to add to your routine.
However, once the weights get heavy, the long handle of the dumbbell places immense pressure on the hands and wrists, making it unstable and harder to push heavier loads overhead. If you use a kettle bell, the weight is more compact and the pressure will remain on the forearm allowing for a neutral or rotating grip.
If you're like most people, you'll find you're able to move more weight through a greater range of motion, with a more natural movement pattern. That's why strength coaches love the double- kettle bell front squat as a spine-friendly way to build athletes' quads, glutes, and hamstrings, while also demanding serious work from secondary and tertiary muscle groups such as the shoulders and core.
“Kettle bells may be more form-oriented than other tools used for strength training, but if you put in the work consistently you will get better and you will see progress,” Wilkins told me. I started out as a beginner with kettle bells six years ago, after injuring my back in CrossFit so badly that my doctor told me to never lift again.
Whether you are a bodybuilder, powerlifter, Crossfire, or just enjoy swinging kettle bells, we all want to stay healthy and be able to keep learning new ways to do what we love. The goal of bodybuilding may be to increase muscle mass and decrease fat to look aesthetically your best, but by supplementing your training routines with kettle bells, you can develop more muscle, improve cardiovascular conditioning, build up muscular endurance, improve overall mobility and stability, and develop better body awareness while still reaching your goals.
Kettle bells are uniquely capable of helping you lose weight, and boost aerobic capacity, apart from increasing strength. To take advantage of this valuable exercise device, you can try out the 100 kettle bell swings a day weight loss program.
To benefit from the 100 kettle bell swings a day weight loss program, you must do it right. Without proper form, a kettle bell swing workout may cause more harm than good.
To initiate the forward swing, push your hips up in a forceful motion. If you don’t have anyone nearby, you can record yourself with a camera during the workout to check for poor form.
In the study, participants experienced increases in both maximum and explosive strength from kettle bell workouts. 21 men, aged 18 to 27 years, went through a 6-week training program with bi-weekly workout sessions.
Although the study didn’t involve daily workouts, it’s a useful indicator of the potential benefits to your lower body strength. An interesting aspect of kettle bell swings is they promote positive hormonal responses, which enhances body-fat-burning.
Researchers from the University of North Texas performed a study to verify this. Their research showed significant increases in growth hormone and testosterone levels (10).
The participants did only 12 sets of kettle bell swings involving 30-second workouts with 30-second rest periods, and they only used 35-pound (15.8 kg) bells. Well, according to The Endocrine Society, testosterone helps increase muscle mass and enhance fat loss (9).
Your body weight: Heavier people typically burn more calories. Your age : Younger people may have more muscle mass, which gives them the capacity to burn more calories.
Your gender : Men tend to have higher metabolism levels compared to women. Your lean body mass : If you have more muscles, you’ll likely burn more calories.
As you can see, the specific calorie burn can vary immensely due to variations in all these factors. This is because the kettle bell swing is an all-round fitness workout, much like a cross between circuit weight training and running.
Fortunately, kettle bell swings also improve your aerobic capacity, as well as your dynamic balance and core strength. This was tested and proven in one study by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) (1).
In the study, researchers tested and found a significant boost in the VO2max (maximum rate of oxygen consumption) of 18 volunteers. The National Research Center for the Working Environment in Denmark performed a study to uncover this benefit (4).
Researchers found that the workouts help reduce pain in the lower back, shoulders, and neck. To answer that question, you need to consider physical activity recommendations by reputable organizations.
This is a useful guide since kettle bell swings are a combination of aerobic workouts and weight training. This gives you at least one rest day for your muscles to recover and avoid injuries.

Any action you take upon the information presented in this article is strictly at your own risk and responsibility! In a recent research, experts compared kettle bells with treadmill workout.
They compared the duration, heartbeat, distance, strength, and a couple of other parameters. This meant that cardiovascular system responds more to weight lifting rather than running.
Make sure that you perform all the motions correctly and keep the intensity to benefit from your chosen routine. First start off with cardio exercises to stretch your muscles and get the blood flowing.
Now, start with warming up and continuing with a truly intensive session to work the entire body. The workout targets all your core muscles and help improve cardio strength by burning around 250-350 calories.
The workout will target all your body muscles including biceps, triceps, chest, legs, and abs. The high intensity workout routine is perfect for all who want to burn fat faster and in less time.
It focuses on explosive power and functional strength because of muscle flexibility and equal weight distribution. The kettle bell cardio workout is harder to perform but it offers a complete routine for all girls.
It is a complete fat burner and abs improve kettle bell cardio workout routine for beginners. This is a complete cardio workout with kettle bell circuit, body weight and plyometric activities.
Kettle bells are one of the best cardio workouts that improve your endurance, intensity, and functional movements. Kettle bells are a lot easier to work out with in comparison with dumbbells because they don’t let you get fatigued.
In return, the user gets higher heart rate and this leads to increased stamina, more fat burning, and better cardio routine. If you compare exercises like these to a biceps curl, you will notice that one produces more muscle action.
By swinging this ancient metal object around in a series of movements, has a huge impact of your testosterone and growth hormone levels. GH is effectively a stress hormone which boosts the amount of glucose and free fatty acids in the body helping it to repair itself and promote new cell growth.
Numerous testosterone supplements can help replicate this effect or even promote more GH production. There’s a process in the body that takes place via somatotrophs, which is situated in the anterior pituitary gland which is found in the brain.
This type of exercise will rock your body into growth hormone production overdrive when done correctly. In the beginning, assuming you’ve never used kettle bells before, I would recommend by doing 3 morning sessions per week before breakfast.
So if you want to get the best results from kettle bell swings for growth hormone production, you can always train fasted at other times of the day. As you progress, you can slowly use a heavier kettle bell, and at the same time, increase the intensity and amount of swings you do.
Follow this basic routine and guidelines for extra growth hormone production using kettle bell swings: Keep the exercises short and sweet (think high burst intensity doing 20/50 swings to start with).
So, armed with this knowledge we call common sense, it only leaves room for one thing when it comes to dieting, and that’s; eat clean whole foods as often as possible. If you can change your dietary patterns and increase the amount of healthy habits every day, then you’ll boost growth hormone levels sky-high when combined with kettle bell swings fasted.
Okay, we’ve all heard breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and that is absolutely true! Adding more protein to your eating routine can help to reduce food cravings, and at the same time, control blood sugar.
Numerous studies have been done on the benefits of dark green vegetables and growth hormone production. If you really want to boost your testosterone and growth hormone levels, you need to make sure you’re eating the right minerals and vitamins on a daily basis.
Minerals such as magnesium, zinc, and vitamin B6 all play a vital role in overall hormone health and production. So, you’ll never be short of exercises to improve your growth hormone levels using a kettle bell.
Not only is this type of workout effective for people looking to shed some weight and gain some muscle, but for athletes that might be looking to improve their performance within their sport. The kettle bell is a cast iron weight that is used mainly for ballistic training.
The original invention of the kettle bell has never been verified but a 143 kg (314.6 pounds) kettle bell at the Archaeological Museum of Olympia in Athens is believed to have been made during the times of the Ancient Greeks and used for demonstrations of strength. In the 18th century Russians added the word “girl” (meaning kettle bell) to their dictionary, and was defined as a tool used to measure grains or crops that were sold by weight.
With dumbbells or a barbell, the weight is distributed evenly on both sides and your hands go in the middle of the object when you lift. A kettle bell ’s center of mass is below the handle which can facilitate swinging and ballistic movements.
The different shape changes the force used to lift it which is less stable than a bar or dumbbells. This means the arms and core are being targeted differently and the result will be improved strength and better grip.
Like traditional free weights, lifting kettle bells can target the entire body or isolate a specific muscle group. Although you can focus on low reps and heavy weight, kettle bells have been mostly used to increase muscular endurance via lower weight and higher repetitions or as a cardiovascular program like a circuit or aerobics class.
Start by holding the kettle bell just above the knee at arm's length with both hands. Bend your knees slightly like you’re lowering yourself down to grab a bar for a dead lift.
While hinging your hips, swing the kettle bell up with both hands until it reaches chest level. Once you reach that point, use force from your legs to return to the starting position.
One Arm Push Press : Lift the kettle bell to shoulder height. Lower yourself down halfway through a squat position while keeping your torso straight.
Push through your heels to a standing position and press the kettle bell overhead. Russian Twist : Stand with feet shoulder width apart and hold the handle of a kettle bell with both hands by taking it by the horns.
Using force from your core and keeping your hips locked into place, turn yourself and the weight to your right as far as you can. Immediately return to the starting position and turn yourself and the weight to your left.
Day 4 Perform each exercise for 30 seconds in giant set fashion. Bend your knees, push your butt back, and pick up the kettle bell.
As it reaches your shoulder level, rotate your hand and punch straight up, lifting the weight overhead. Slightly bend your knees and push your butt out to get in the starting position.
With one arm, grab the weight and pull it in to your stomach while retracting your shoulder blades and bending your elbow. Lunge : Take the kettle bell by the horns and hold it at chest level with elbows bent.
While keeping the weight in this position, perform a lunge like you normally would with dumbbells or a barbell. Once your knee is an inch or so above the floor, step back to the starting position.
Crush the handle as you sit up along the line of your arm, first to elbow and then to hand. Keep the kettle bell arm down and in it socket and the opposite shoulder away from the ear.
Sweep the straight leg back and through to a half kneeling position. Russian Swing and Catch: You will perform this movement as you would the regular Russian swing but instead of using one arm at a time before switching, you’ll switch hands once the bell reaches chest level.
This makes the workout more challenging because you can lower yourself deeper than you could with your hands on the floor and you’ll have more difficulty keeping yourself stable. After you do each push up, you’ll perform a one arm row pulling the kettle bell in to your side while keeping the other weight on the floor.
Keep the rest of your body as still as you can while you perform another circle in the opposite direction. You will slowly add more time training and decrease rest between circuits.
Massaging yogis was always great for anatomy exploration, but some of my clients were everyday bodybuilders, forever chasing the Hollywood superhero body. Massaging through gym rats’ chronically tight and tense muscles was a workout in itself.
Arguably, the reason why many needed to see me in the first place was due to poor training habits (coupled with too much time spent in a chair). They’ll also use external apparatus to stabilize movements for the sake of muscle isolation and “extra focus on the muscle fibers.” These training habits eventually rewire the nervous system to forget how to activate the stabilizers it was born with and effectively make the everyday bodybuilder prone to injury and, in the long run, substantially less capable at life.
Training for functional mass involves protocols that build nice big Hollywood muscles while also making the body more useful at real life tasks and less prone to back, shoulder and knee injuries. Their muscles are rock hard when activated, but unlike powerlifters and bodybuilders, they have the ability to switch off when not in use and are not short and chronically tight.
If the goal is functional mass, arguably the best training modality would be Olympic lifting with a mix of calisthenics. O-lifting is a long and highly rewarding path, for those who possess the movement ability.
However, it’s not accessible to the vast majority of everyday people, because we just don’t move well enough. I encourage anyone to start their O-lifting journey if they can pass my simple litmus test: being able to hold a naked (20 kg) Olympic bar overhead while sitting in the deep squat for two minutes.
Never use a bench, chair, pad, fixed resistance machine or anything to help stabilize movement or isolate target muscle groups. Smashing the muscle fibers to destruction, so they’ll grow back bigger and stronger is absolutely achievable using the stabilizers you were born with.
I think that avoiding the use of external apparatus for help with stability is the most important rule that should be applied to all training, no matter the goal. Forget back ‘n’ biceps, shoulders ‘n’ triceps or chest ‘n’ abs.
Replace it with squat ‘n’ pull, hinge ‘n’ push, loco mote ‘n’ resist rotation, say. Don’t go the gym and further train yourself to flex into the shape of a cashew nut (biceps, chest and superficial abs).
It promotes feelings of depression and weakness and arguably brings you closer to the grave. Be more superhero and train extension, with dead lifts, pull-ups, push-ups×, squats, cleans, military press* and loaded carries.
*A skilled practitioner presses from their lats while radiating tension throughout the midsection with their glutes. For mass training, two kettle bells always beats one because this increases the work volume.
When I’m programming for my remote clients, any given functional mass session only lasts 40-55 minutes. Given that the first 15-20 minutes of that is spent on joint mobility, this leaves a short window for the main workout component.
Ballistics involve kettebells being swung through two-planes of motion (swings, cleans and snatches). For goals such as losing weight or improving conditioning, ballistics should outweigh grinds.
Since the golden years of bodybuilding in the ‘70s, it’s been known that the more time the muscles spend under tension, the better for hypertrophy. I served in the Royal Marines Commandos with a dude who had a better body than Captain America.
He only ever did thousands of really light reps and isometric holds with resistance bands and baby dumbbells. We may have admired his physical appearance, but we relished in the fact that he was weak and sub-par as an operational Commando.
His dead lift was pathetic, he couldn’t outrun a hedgehog, let alone run a heavy backpack over a mountain, he often had lower back pain, and he couldn’t reach his magazine pouches because his big, useless muscles were in the way. Through my years of training I know that loaded jump squats are a very reliable ingredient for developing legs like tree trunks.
But crippling injuries also usually come as a complimentary extra for those who can’t deep squat slowly without load. If someone can sit in a deep squat position for over 4 minutes, they qualify for adding load.
Then after some months, adding explosive speed will induce miracle muscle growth. This is an age-old ingredient for muscle mass because it optimizes hormone release and facilitates the highest possible volume.
Strength is tension… How much full body tension you’re able to produce reflects your ability to apply force. More relaxed, loose muscles = better blood flow, faster recovery, less chronic tension and related injuries.
But if the goal is looking like a Marvel superhero in the shorter term, without breaking the first two (and most important) of these golden rules, training to failure in some lifts for 2-3 months won’t do any harm. But if you want to put on some muscle mass in a short space of time without cocking up your hormone balance by taking vitamin-S (anabolic steroids), train to failure and grow some sarcoplasmic muscle mass.
A great way to deplete the glycogen stores within the muscles and leave your arms or legs feeling like they might drop off. Many uneducated or inexperienced trainers think it’s their mission to create delayed onset muscle soreness (Does) for their paying clients after every session.
Regular, weekly Does creates excessive muscle toxicity, which has a plethora of negative side effects and cripples good movement. Soles Does in unavoidable for people who’ve been wearing foot coffins (shoes) all their lives and want to learn to run properly.
Every session should begin with 20 minutes of joint mobility and muscle activation, relative to your individual movement needs and injury history. Then take a week off and try another functional mass program to change the stimulus.
All programs should contain all human movement patterns and should obviously be suitable for the person it’s written for. If you disqualify, there are literally thousands of other effective functional mass programs that are suitable for you.
