York Vinyl Kettlebell – Features Summary
Benefits of including kettlebell training in your workouts
Kettlebell training has grown in popularity over recent years due to its ability to provide you with a full body workout in a relatively short space of time.
Although there are some similarities to dumbbells in the fact that they can be picked up using one arm and are available in a wide variety of sizes, they actually differ in a number of important ways.
The way that the weight is distributed being the main difference, this helps to make kettlebells much safer for being raised overhead in exercises such as over head presses and front raises. Particularly noticeable during overhead presses is the way the weight is off center.
Whereas if you pressed a dumbbell over your head you may be able to keep your arm straight up with relatively little effort, the off center nature of the kettlebell weight means it is never ‘resting’ on your palm and always pulling against stabilizer muscles.
[one_half]Another of the benefits of using kettlebells over standard dumbbells is the increased handle width.
Whereas with dumbbells the bar you grip will often be relatively narrow, kettlebell handles are much thicker which will help improve your grip and strengthen your forearms.
With the weight usually moving through a much greater range of motion in kettlebell training this results in recruiting more muscle fibers different muscle groups.
This also has the effect of raising your metabolic rate which can help with fat loss.[/one_half]
