Unlike many resistance devices, a kettlebell gets your whole body working at once.
Kettlebells can provide one of the simplest, most effective workouts around. A wide range of challenging lifting and swinging movements build strength and cardio endurance, as well as mental toughness.
Their simple design and versatility make it the ideal tool for beginners, while the cardiovascular and strength-endurance components of kettlebell training challenge even the most conditioned athletes.
In short, the kettlebell is a tool with tremendous work capacity; it’s designed to provide a brief but intense workout — for nearly anyone.
The concentration mandatory for kettlebell training will engage your mind as well. You can let yourself only concentrate on the job at hand, not your work deadlines, that argument with your spouse, or where the kids need to be shuttled off to next. Literally turning your brain off and thinking of only this workout helps you to relax and relieve nervous tension.
Using a total body workout in conjunction with a clear mind offers a cleansing and relaxing chunk of time for you. This type of training physically discharges frustrations and gets you working up a sweat, challenging your body in ways you didn't think possible. The fulfillment in knowing that you were able to finish such a workout and that you did something good for your body will help you feel better psychologically as well.
