Why Strength Training?
As one of the most effective ways to reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently, strength training is an important part of any fitness programme. Studies have shown that strength training can also help to increase the endurance of muscles, while also helping to increase bone density, reduce resting blood pressure and improve balance and co-ordination.
Kettlebells are one of the most effective pieces of equipment to use during a strength training session. Offering users a full body workout, they utilise different muscle groups through their ability to be flung, lifted and pushed.
How to Use a Kettlebell
To get the most out of your workout, it is essential that you are using the correct weights. As a guide, the last rep should be struggle. You should still have control over the weight and your form should still be correct but you'll feel like you can't repeat the movement any more.
Kettlebells are ideal for explosive exercises that work major muscles, burn body fat, and build power, but they can also be used to add a new dimension to standard weight training exercises such as chest presses, bicep curls and rows.
Here are a few suggestions to get your started:
Two Handed Kettlebell Swing
With feet hip-width apart, hold the Kettlebell in both hands with palms facing down and arms in front of the body.
Bend the knees slightly and push the hips back into a squat position. Then in one single motion swing the Kettlebell up to shoulder height.
That's one rep. Aim to do 3 sets of 12 reps.
Around the Body Pass
Hold the Kettlebell with both hands in front of your hips and stand with your feet hip-width apart. Release the Kettlebell into your right hand and move both arms behind your back.
Take the Kettlebell with your left hand and bring it back to the front so you have completed a full circle around your body.
That's one rep. Do 10 reps on each side.
Kettlebell high pull
With feet shoulder-width apart, place the Kettlebell on the floor between both legs.
Lower into a squat position and grip the Kettlebell with one hand. Then in one single motion, push through the heels into a standing position, pulling the Kettlebell upwards to shoulder height.
This is one rep. Repeat 12 times, then switch arms. Aim to do 3 sets of 12 reps on each arm.
