Kettlebells are cast iron or rubber encased ball-shaped weights with a handle attached at the top. Used for strength training, they 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. Read our kettlebells guide.
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 both Vinyl and Vinyl-Coated Iron Kettlebells.
