Kettlebells

Kettlebell Classes

Boars Hill

By their nature, typical kettlebell exercises build strength and endurance, particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders, and increase grip strength.[2][4][7] The basic movements, such as the swing, snatch, and the clean and jerk, engage the entire body at once,[4] and in a way that mimics real world activities such as shoveling or farm work.[2][3][7]

Unlike the exercises with dumbbells or barbells, kettlebell exercises often involve large numbers of repetitions. Kettlebell exercises are in their nature holistic; therefore they work several muscles simultaneously and may be repeated continuously for several minutes or with short breaks. This combination makes the exercise partially aerobic and more similar to high-intensity interval training rather than to traditional weight lifting. In one study, kettlebell enthusiasts performing a 20 minute snatch workout were measured to burn, on average, 13.6 calories/minute aerobically and 6.6 calories/minute anaerobically during the entire workout - "equivalent to running a 6-minute mile pace".[5] Because of their high repetitions, kettlebell progression should start out slowly to build muscle endurance, support the joints and prevent injury.
