Kettlebell workout routines can be beneficial if you are trying to lose weight or gain muscle.
Here are a couple of exercises that you can add to your routine.
Kettlebell swing – Start with your legs slightly wider than your shoulder. Place the weight in between your legs. Proceed to do a squat and grab the kettlebell and then squat back up while swinging the kettlebell shoulder height. Repeat this process, make sure you the same number of repetition on each side.
Abdominal Rotation – With your butt on the floor, make a 45 degree angle with your lower body and your upper body. Keeping your core contracted rotate your upper body with the kettlebell touching the floor on each side. This will work on your abdominals and core.
Overhead press – Stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Bring the weight to your shoulder level. Proceed to bring the weight up and over your head. Repeat this process making sure that you do the same repetition on each side.
These are just three exercises that can be incorporated in your kettlebell workout routines. There are much more exercises that you can incorporate but keep in my mind that when thinking of new exercises consider the following
Number of muscle being used
Complexity of the exercises
Benefits of the exercises
In order for a exercise to be effective one must know the proper form. When it comes to working out the proper form is vital and one of the most important aspect to consider. If you know that your knees goes inward when performing a squat you should stretch out your hamstring, soleous and calves. And perform squats on a stability ball until you have perfected the form.
