The great thing about kettle bells is that a lot of the moves require you to embrace your core in a way that your abdominal always get worked. If you don’t have a weight that challenges you on this exercise, the move can still be beneficial when used as a ballistic warm-up and loosening up movement.

Squeeze your abdominal and resist allowing your torso and upper body to turn as your arm moves the kettle bell behind you. Additionally, the more you can prevent your shoulders from turning with the kettle bell, the more this exercise will work your core.

Kettle bells are a fun and versatile way to incorporate weight training into your routine. I see many kinds of kettle bells on the market today from plastic to rubber to metal.

By Taco Fleur — Own work, CC BY-SA 4.0 Kettle bell swings usually require a lighter weight and more repetitions. First things first, grab a kettle bell that is heavy enough to ensure the moves will get difficult after a few sets of 10-12 repetitions.

If this is your first time trying a given move, start light and increase the weight as you become more comfortable. Note: If you don’t have access to a kettle bell, you can do most of these exercises with a regular weight or dumbbell.

Exercise Disclaimer: Before starting any new workout regimen, it’s important to consult with your healthcare provider. If you experience faintness, dizziness, pain or shortness of breath at any time while exercising you should stop immediately.

Especially if you’re new to kettle bell workouts, I recommend watching the videos at least once or twice to understand how each move should look. Hold the kettle bell on the handle in front of you with your palms facing in.

Start to rotate the kettle bell clockwise around your body and by switching hands. Hold your core muscles tight and keep your chest high throughout the move.

Start by pushing your hips back and slightly bending your knees. Reach down by hinging at your hip and grab your kettle bell on the handle with both hands.

Bend the standing knee slightly and hinge forward at the hip. Hold your kettle bell on the horns with both hands (palms facing in) in front of your chest.

Lower your body towards the ground in a sitting motion while maintaining a straight back. Bring your kettle bell over your head using a clean and press motion.

Bend at your hip and reach for the floor with the hand opposite of the kettle bell. Once you touch the floor (or shin) return to the starting position and repeat.

Stand tall with your back straight and core muscles engaged. Stop once your elbows are parallel to the ground, lower your arms slowly and then repeat.

Feel free to get creative with our exercise moves at home or at the gym. Also called the Slingshot or Around The World, kettle bell circles are a great warm-up and active rest exercise.

This allows your body to stay warm and the calories to keep burning at an elevated rate throughout the entire workout and after. Kettle bell circles help strengthen the core, improve balance and stability due to the fact that the kettle bell is circling around your body and you have to counterbalance in order to keep the body straight and stable.

When your body sways, it is trying to stabilize by using your body weight as the counterweight against the kettle bell, therefore, the more still and stable you are, the harder y our stabilizer muscles (in this case, abdominal, calves, back) are working and the more you get out of this exercise. A word of caution, be very careful when first starting out to pass the kettle bell from one hand to the other.

It mainly works the forearms, shoulders, abdominal, back, and calves. The Kettle bell Circles are extremely useful as a warm-up, cool-down, or as “active rest” or a bridge between exercises when you aren’t exhausted to the point where you need a complete break, but need to catch your breath.

A 16-kilogram (35 lb) “competition kettle bell Arthur Saxon with a kettle bell, cover of The Text Book of Weight-Lifting (1910)The Russian girl (, plural girl) was a type of metal weight, primarily used to weigh crops in the 18th century.

They began to be used for recreational and competition strength athletics in Russia and Europe in the late 19th century. The birth of competitive kettle bell lifting or Gregory sport ( ) is dated to 1885, with the founding of the “Circle for Amateur Athletics” ( ).

Russian girl are traditionally measured in weight by Food, corresponding to 16.38 kilograms (36.1 lb). The English term kettle bell has been in use since the early 20th century.

Similar weights used in Classical Greece were the halter, comparable to the modern kettle bell in terms of movements. Variants of the kettle bell include bags filled with sand, water, or steel shot.

By their nature, typical kettle bell exercises build strength and endurance, particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders, and increase grip strength. The basic movements, such as the swing, snatch, and the clean and jerk, engage the entire body at once, and in a way that mimics real world activities such as shoveling or farm work.

Unlike the exercises with dumbbells or barbells, kettle bell exercises involve large numbers of repetitions in the sport, and can also involve large reps in normal training. Kettle bell exercises are in their nature holistic; therefore they work several muscles simultaneously and may be repeated continuously for several minutes or with short breaks.

This combination makes the exercise partially aerobic and more similar to high-intensity interval training rather than to traditional weight lifting. In a 2010 study, kettle bell enthusiasts performing a 20-minute snatch workout were measured to burn, on average, 13.6 calories/minute aerobically and 6.6 calories/minute anaerobically during the entire workout — “equivalent to running a 6-minute mile pace”.

When training with high repetitions, kettle bell progression should start out slowly to build muscle endurance, support the joints and prevent injury. Like movements performed with any exercise tool, they can be dangerous to those who have back or shoulder problems, or a weak core, when performed without proper education and progression.

They can offer improved mobility, range of motion, agility, cardio vascular endurance, mental toughness and increased strength. The following is a list of common exercises that are uniquely suited to the kettle bell for one reason or another.

A kettle bell exercise that combines the lunge, bridge and side plank in a slow, controlled movement. Keeping the arm holding the bell extended vertically, the athlete transitions from lying supine on the floor to standing, and back again.

As with the other slow exercises (the windmill, get-up, and halo), this drill improves shoulder mobility and stabilization. It starts lying on the ground with the kettle bell over the shoulder in a straight arm position, as in the top of a floor press, but with the other arm along the floor straight overhead.

The trainee then gradually turns their body away from the kettle bell until they are lying partially on their front. The kettle bell is held hanging in one arm and moved smoothly around the body, switching hands in front and behind.

Also called a front leg pass, this is a backward lunge, circling the bell around the front leg, returning to the standing position, and repeating. Like the slingshot, but the bell is swung forward until the arms are parallel to the ground.

Starting with the bell in the rack, the bell is pushed away to the side slightly, the swung down to the other side in front of the body, and reversed back up into the rack. A variation of the press where the other arm assists by pushing open palm against the ball.

A press utilizing a bent-leg windmill position to lift heavier weight than is otherwise possible. One bell is rowed to the chest while maintaining the plank position, then returned to the ground and repeated with the other arm.

Alternatively performed with a single kettle bell, one arm at a time. This requires more control than an ordinary push up and results in a greater range of motion.

Feet may be elevated to increase the difficulty, until the trainee is performing a handstand push-up on the kettle bells. In any movement involving the rack or overhead position, the kettle bell can be held with the ball in an open palm (sometimes called the waiter hold) for a greater stabilization challenge, or for even more precise control and added grip challenge, the bottom-up hold, squeezing the kettle bell by the handle upside-down.

Holding a single kettle bell in the rack position bottom-up with two hands (“by the horns”) makes for goblet exercise variants. Conventional swing: The kettle bell is swung from just below the groin to somewhere between the upper abdomen and shoulders, with arms straight or slightly bent, the degree of flexion depends on the trajectory of the kettle bell.

Hang clean: The kettle bell is held in the rack position (resting on the forearm in the crook of the elbow, with the elbow against the chest), lowered to below the knees, and then thrust back up in to the rack. The kettle bell is held in one hand, lowered to behind the knees via hip hinge, swung to an overhead position and held stable, before repeating the movement.

Jerk: As a push press, but with two dips, for more leg assistance (as in the barbell clean and jerk) Thruster: A rack squat with a press at the top using momentum from the squat. Pistol squat: A single-leg squat with one leg held straight in front parallel to the ground, holding the bell in the goblet or rack position.

An easier variant for those with less hip mobility is to perform the squat parallel to a step or ledge, so that the foot of the free leg can dip beneath the pushing leg at the bottom. Carry: Walking with the kettle bell held in various positions, such as suitcase, rack, goblet, or overhead.

Row: While bent over anywhere from 45 degrees to parallel with the ground, the kettle bell is held hanging from a straight arm, pulled up to the hips or laterally, and lowered again.
