15-Minute Kettle bells Workout Kettle bell workouts target multiple muscle groups at once, which boosts your overall calorie burn. A Kettle bell swing is an extension of the dead lift...
Loved the breeze on the beach at this morning's class, think it helped us all workout extra hard :) Just like a Boss Balance Trainer workout, sand is constantly shifting and changing, demanding various muscles in the body to come into play that might not normally engage on a pavement or gym floor workout.
Wednesday evening on the tennis courts 7.30pm, more of a boot camp style! Think fitness devices like cable machines, boxes for jumps and even some free weights, specifically kettle bells.
However, given the inherent difficulty of attending gyms right now with a face mask and the potential risk of exposure, I decided to shake things up and took the plunge: I ordered a kettle bell. If you’re likewise looking for the best kettle bells to buy, you’ll quickly find lots of options and some might seem very similar to others.
I’ve found a lot of value in even basic exercises, which challenged my body in gym-worthy ways, an especially significant value in workout gear as we head into winter. Other fitness pros I talked to had predictably different takes on the best approach to equipping your home gym with kettle bells.
Heidi Pocono, a personal trainer and manager of training at GYMGUYZ, recommends a vinyl coated cast iron kettle bell. “This is my go-to piece of equipment, no matter where I’m training,” Pocono said, noting the “comfortable” cast iron handle glides smoothly in her hand whether she’s performing a kettle bell swing, snatch or a windmill.

Enter the kettle bell, a type of dumbbell that's round (like a bell) and has a handle, making it easy to lift and carry around. Our Health & Wellness newsletter puts the best products, updates and advice in your inbox.
The way the bell is shaped allows you to train power, endurance and strength all in one little piece of iron,” says Lauren Kan ski, certified personal trainer and founder of the K Method. Getting started with a kettle bell workout may seem as easy as picking one up and swinging it around -- but that can lead to injury.
Keep reading for Kan ski's advice on how to get started with a kettle bell workout routine below. Getty Images If you've never worked out with kettle bells, it's important to start with a lightweight model so you don't hurt yourself while you learn the basics.
The standard kettle bell grip is similar to how you would grab a bag of groceries. According to Kan ski, one of the biggest mistakes she sees people make is jumping right into more advanced moves like swings and snatches before they're ready.
Master these three moves from Kan ski and you'll be off to a solid start with your kettle bell fitness routine. Your core stabilizers fight hard through the squat to keep you balanced,” Kan ski says.
Start with the kettle bell in the front racked position -- sits at your chest, cradled in your bicep, with the horn (handle) underneath your clavicle. Start holding a kettle bell in each hand by your sides, keeping them off your thighs.
Start with the kettle bell about an arms' length away from your body, resting on the ground. Brace your core, grip the bell and throw it between your legs like you're hiking a football.
