Basic information about kettlebells
Kettlebells are used by people of all different fitness levels. They are particularly popular in cross fit and other functional types of training. They are very popular with athletes to train not only strength and endurance but also speed, flexibility and coordination.
Furthermore, kettlebells are not only useful for lifting, they are also good for many other kinds of training.
Three training sequences using a kettlebell – individual exercises for more strength
Kettlebells can be used for three different types of exercise. They can either be lifted, swung (which stimulates the metabolism) or thrown into the air and caught. The last exercise should only be done if an athlete has already built up sufficient strength and is familiar with working with kettlebells. After a while you become more proficient at handling a kettlebell and begin to feel more confident with it. With practice, your gripping strength and coordination will also be trained.
Different weight classes of kettlebell
Kettlebells, like dumbbells are available in different weights. It makes sense to start with a light to medium weight (depending on your physical condition) and then work your way up if necessary. The focus should always be on a clean technique when carrying out the individual exercises. You should never be straining to lift up the weight of a kettlebell.
If you are not yet familiar with this kind of training equipment, you would be well advised to start with kettlebells made of plastic. These are not only available in different weight classes but are also cheaper than cast iron or steel types.
Important: keep a straight posture
Whichever exercises you perform with kettlebells, it is very important to make sure you have the correct posture. You should train in front of a mirror to check this!
Always check that you are standing up straight (most exercises using kettlebells are done standing up) and that your arms and shoulders are relaxed and hanging down. Your knees should also be slightly bent and feet at shoulder width apart. Avoid having a hunched back at all times whilst carrying out the different exercises.
Versatile training with a kettlebell – this is how!
Kettlebells are very popular because they are so versatile and can be used in many different ways such as to:
optimise your overall endurance
train your leg muscles
strengthen your upper body
improve your posture
train your speed
support your whole-body workouts
Kettlebells can be adapted to suit your individual training routines at many different levels. This piece of training equipment has now been popular in both fitness studios and home gyms for a long time.

Kettlebell swing with kettlebells from Gorilla Sports
The kettlebell swing is one of the most popular exercises using kettlebells. With this exercise you train strength and endurance and it will certainly build up a whole body sweat. The kettlebell swing is a variation of a squat. To perform the kettlebell swing, stand with your legs approximately shoulder-width apart with your toes pointing slightly outwards. Grasp the kettlebell firmly with both hands. Then push your hips back and swing the kettlebell up into the air. The weight of the kettlebell should be appropriate to your training level. After a few training sessions you can move on to a heavier kettlebell.
