Kettlebells

Knowing that our site is geared towards thinking out side the box and the exotica technologies and medicines, we have been asked many times, “Is there a device, technology, etc., that would make exercising more efficient, take less time than traditional machines and is compact or easy to carry around”.

After careful research, we found an item that does all the above, although low tech.  It is called a Kettlebell. A Kettlebell is a Russian invention called a girya.  It is a cast iron weight looking somewhat like a cannonball with a handle. Many companies produce their own brands of kettlebells and kettlebell exercise programs. Some modern kettlebells feature adjustable weights or are rubber coated to improve safety for floors.  They range from 5 lbs to 175 lbs,

Unlike traditional dumbbells, the kettlebell’s center of mass is extended beyond the hand, similar to Indian juggling clubs. This allows for swing movements not possible with traditional dumbbells. Because more muscle groups are utilized in the swinging and movement of a kettlebell than during the lifting of dumbbells (particularly posterior chain and core muscles), a kettlebell appears to be more effective, and yields better results in less time (dependent on training goals).

Because the center of mass on a kettlebell “swings”, micro-muscles are needed to balance a kettlebell, more so than a dumbbell. The existence of a handle allows for “release moves” which are not available to a dumbbell.  I have been practicing Martial Arts for over 25 tears, been a member of many gyms and tried many work plans.  By far, to my experience, nothing comes close to effectiveness of a kettlebell workout.  In ½ hour, I get an over all strength training and cardio work out with only two or three kettlebells.  When I travel, I can carry two with me on a plane literally!  In fact, all I use is three, no more equipment!!!.  When done, I place them in the corner of the room as décor.  How is that for efficiency, versatility and practical?
