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.

It's going to set me back about 9gbp to return the kettle, so I guess I'll be hanging on to it, but it's really only to be used as a door stop. The sheer bulk of this kettle makes it difficult if not impossible to use for a number of activities. (Again see the pictures)
At the price, it's cheap - but it's cheap for a reason.. Personally I shant be expanding my York kettlebell collection beyond this one example.
Firstly, the size is an issue. Due to its large bulk, some exercises are difficult. The vinyl kettlebell is considerably larger than its iron counterpart. I am long limbed, but there are some exercises I will not even attempt with this.
Secondly, and in my opinion most importantly, the vinyl kettlebell has a seam which runs aronnd the diameter of the weight. Initially, this is not much of a problem. However, after an intensive workout with this weight, you will inevitably have some unnecessary blistering to your hands. Blisters and freeweight exercise go hand in hand, but I fail to see the point in using a piece of equipment which will certainly aggravate this problem.
Finally, there are superior kettlebells on the market for a similar price to this one.
Dont consider this item. I advise anyone considering exercising with kettlebells to stick with cast iron ones ( Amazon have a few in a similar price range to this vinyl one ).
In comparison to the more compact cast-iron bells, these vinyl ones are substantially bulkier. This isn't as noticeable when doing swings and squats but did make it less easy when doing overhead presses etc.
I'd also question how robust it is. The one that I was sent by Amazon was defective; the handle had split and the 'filler' was coming out. This may just have been unfortunate but given that these are likely to hit the floor occasionally, I'm slightly concerned. Btw, Amazon handled the return and refund without any problem.
I'm going to spend the extra cash and get a proper iron kettlebell which should be easier to use and more sturdy.
Bottom line: it's a great kettlebell in terms of having a comfortable grip with plenty of room for 2 hands, but it's far too wide and unwieldy for 16kg.
I have been going ot the gym for the last few years but I have steered clear of weights of any variety,mainly because I did not feel confident to deal with them
Recently I took up body pump which gets you used to light weights and going through a routine of repetitions. I realised that I would have to build some muscle if I was to improve my fat burning. I have been a few times and after the initial leg aches through squatting with weights I am now quite confident that I know what I am doing.
The gym also gave a free demo on kettle bells. I have never seen of heard of kettle bells so I went along for a 30 minutes demo.
The main activity that its different from anything else is the swing whereby you hold the kettle bell with both hands and use the strength of your legs to increase the swing between your legs and maybe up to chest height. It is your legs not your arms which you have to get used to.
I did that a few times and found the technique different. The other parts of the exercise programme are like other weights but it is a handy manageable size and you don't have bars and weights to keep changing or thinking about.
My partner moans that I have a sit up machine a medicine ball and a couple of 3kg dumbbells in the front room even though they are mainly out of sight. As a result she told me I wasn't allowed to buy fitness equipment that would take up space or not be used.
The beauty of the kettle bells that it takes little space and is very versatile. The worst thing that can happen with it is to use it as a door stop.
After my introduction my inner thigh muscles ached for the next four days so it did something.Read more ›

It arrived damaged. The handle was broken and the filling was leaking out.Published 7 days ago by Graham
Poorly made. There is a join running through the handle which rubs on your hands as you swing it. To be honest, this is on most plastic kettle bells . Read morePublished 9 days ago by Amazon Customer
