About Kettlebells

Kettlebells are cast iron or vinyl ball-shaped weights with a handle attached at the top. There are all sorts of kettlebells on the market, including rubber encased, vinyl covered, neoprene covered and even selectorised kettlebells. Kettlebells that have a protective cover are popular as they cause less damage and are quieter if dropped. They can often be more attractive options too.

Used for strength and resistance training, kettlebells are an extremely efficient and effective way to train your body in almost every aspect of fitness including endurance, strength, agility and balance. With effective Kettlebell training, you can burn fat, increase your power and obtain the physique you crave.

 

Benefits of Kettlebells

The benefit of Kettlebells in strength and endurance training is that you can achieve so much from just one piece of equipment. This is one of the main reasons why this form of fitness training continues to rise in popularity. They offer more flexibility both in terms of motion and the range of exercises you can perform – at minimal cost. They are also space efficient, making them convenient and highly popular.

Kettlebell exercises focus more on the muscles you use for deceleration and stabilisation. They involve a swinging motion, holding the kettlebell in one hand or both. Unlike other types of training, you have to engage in whole body movements. You have to stabilise your body to perform effective movements and different exercises require you to engage different muscle groups including your core, hips and legs. 

 

Different Types of Kettlebells

Kettlebells are available in a range of sizes and designs to appeal to different needs and preferences. They typically increment in 2kg steps, starting at 2kg up to 40kg.

Selectorised Kettlebells have adjustable weight stacks. Highly convenient, they offer fast weight changes and are also extremely space efficient as they remove the need for individual kettlebells. At Fitness Superstore, we also offer fixed weight Iron Kettlebells. For added comfort, we also offer Vinyl, Vinyl-Coated Iron Kettlebells and Neoprene Covered Kettlebells. Competition Kettlebells are another option. These kettlebells are always the exact same size, no matter what the weight is. This means that the kettlebell will rest on your forearm in the same place, whether it’s a 4kg or 12kg weight. As the name suggests, these kettlebells are crucial in competitions as technique is consistent.

Whatever type of kettlebells you’re after, Fitness Superstore has it covered.
