The first obvious question is – what is a Kettlebell?
A. A cast-iron weight (resembling a cannonball with a handle) used to perform exercises that combine cardiovascular, strength and flexibility training. By their nature, typical kettlebell exercises build strength and endurance, particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders, and increase grip strength.
The humble kettlebell has been used by Russian athletes for generations but it`s only in recent times that the western world has caught onto the benefits of using the kettlebell as part of a regular routine.
You might not think that swinging a 12-kg bell around for 10-20 minutes would not only tone your muscles but give you a cardio workout in the process. But you would be wrong! Current expert opinion suggests that supervised training with Kettlebells gives you the opportunity to move athletically with additional resistance from a variety of angles and more challenging positions.
Many athletes from a variety of sports now use kettlebells in their programs. Pete works with clients across Surrey and London, of varying degrees of fitness and strength and utilises the kettlebell in many of his individual training programs.
