Related story These Are The Best Arm Exercises Recommended By Real Personal Trainers “A kettle bell is arguably one of the most versatile pieces of training equipment you can have in your arsenal,” Justin Fauci, NASM-certified personal trainer, co-founder of Caliber Fitness, tells Shows. “Unlike dumbbells, kettle bells can be used not only for slow, muscle building exercises, but more dynamic, cardiovascular challenging movements like swings and snatches that improve power and strength.
This means that, no matter whether you are trying to burn fat or tone muscle, are a beginner or more advanced, you can select exercises to suit you.” Whether you are in a gym or at home, the humble kettle bell (KB) can be used to achieve a challenging whole-body workout with just a little imagination.
“Rows are one of the ultimate back builders but also use some biceps, especially when using a narrower or underhand grip,” says Fauci. Stand strong and stable with weight evenly distributed across the feet and back position set.
Grab a kettle bell in each hand and retract your scapula, pulling the elbows back until you feel a contraction. How to: Grab the kettle bell by going underneath the handle, twisting it up so that the weight of it rests on your forearm.
From here you are going to squat down and as you come up, plant your feet and power your arm up and over your head in a press movement. “This exercise works the anterior deltoid, lats, traps, biceps and triceps,” says Dr. Nicole Lombard, a physical therapist and CrossFit Level 1 Coach.
According to Bryan Carrying, lifestyle + fitness coach and creator of REHAB and founding trainer of revolutionaries, this exercises works your triceps, biceps, and shoulders. Modification: take the first two fingers of the opposite side and help guide the KB up to a full press.
According to Kline, this effective exercise hits your traps, back, core, and shoulders. How to: Standing shoulder width apart, bend at the knees to grab the kettle bell with one hand.
If you’re tight on time, or looking for a quick workout you can do anywhere with minimal stuff, all you need is one bell. For those tired of waiting for free weights, machines, or are seeking a fresh and intense way to work out, we’ve asked Mike Steele of Training Room Online in Avon, NJ, for his prescription.
Keep the spine neutral and eyes focused slightly down as you fold at the hips and grab the handles of the bell. Your heels should be positioned firmly flat on the ground and shoulder blades pulled back.
Allowing your hips to support much of the motion, if the bell flops and sways it means too much of the upper body is involved. Hike the bell back like a football between your legs while maintaining the lower-back arch and also hinging at the hips.
The swing is more like a hip hike rather than a squat so it places more of an emphasis on the glutes and hamstrings. Coming out of the deep hike is followed by an explosive hip snap with your knees locking out at the top of the motion.
Be sure to keep the neck of bell in a neutral position during the swing and your heels should always stay glued to the floor. The highest point of the swing should have the bell at hip or chest height, no higher.
Squeeze your elbows in, sit back on your heels and squat down to a range of motion that enables your spine to remain neutral or flat. When you’re coming out of the squat and standing up, keep your weight back on your heels and tighten your glutes and quads at the top.
