Kettlebell Combination Exercises Add Variation To Your Physical Training

Joseph Coupal - Friday, September 03, 2010

"Kettlebell" training has arrived and gone mainstream. Kettlebell training is not just for those on the cutting edge of fitness techniques. Kettlebell users range from our brand-new members to our long-time "Group Power" workout class enthusiasts.  The new exercise tool is being picked up by all people, of all ages, in all states of physical health.  What's the buzz here? Read on.

Kettlebells are basically a cast iron weight looking somewhat like a cannonball with a handle. They are used to perform ballistic exercises which combine cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training. They can range in weight from 5lbs to 165lbs. By their nature, kettlebell exercises build strength and endurance particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders.  Because kettlebell training increases grip strength, their use is now commonplace in both professional and organized amateur sports training. Many of our members report that is is also quite simply a new and entertaining type of workout.  

By way of example, we'll outline a popular kettlebell exercise for you here.  Remember, as with any new piece of equipment, you must seek out a qualified member of our staff before engaging in the exercise. Of course, the number one reason is your safety, but almost equally important, getting educated by our Answer is Fitness education professionals enables you to maximize the benefit of your time and effort.

Here's a routine that takes 2 or 3 kettlebell exercises and combines them into one. It is an extremely effective routine if you want to really rev up your fat burning, strength training and conditioning all at once.  What you will be doing is the Snatch, Press and Front Squat in that order:

1.   Do a Snatch bring the kettlebell down to your shoulder then
2.   Do a Press bring the bell back down to your shoulder
3.   Do a Front Squat

It is recommended to do 6 reps per side. What you can do is break that up if you want 2 left and then 2 right till you get to 6 per side. Work up to doing 4-6 sets with these. Go through one progression rest 30 - 60 seconds and start again. With experience, strive to cut down on the amount of rest time.

Enjoy your new Answer is Fitness kettlebell exercise.  To your health!
