5 reasons why kettlebells should be your choice for daily exercise
With proper technique, it’s safer than weight training and easier to learn — for any age group or body type
At SOS, we provide you with a guided instruction that keeps movements simple. Everyone can and should be able to do the workouts, no matter how old or out of shape you are. Our smaller, focused group training classes provide you with an ENTIRE body workout. What could be easier? One bell, two to three times a week, for a few minutes at a time. Let’s face it, you have enough on your plate during the week with work, family, the house and other errands. Your workout should be fun and enjoyable, not time-consuming or complicated.
Eliminate the lower back pain
Kettlebell training consists of whole body movement exercises, with a focus on the glutes and hip muscles. Not only will you gain strength and mobility in these areas but you will find the day to day activities easier once your body learns to use them properly. In other words, your body will “reprogram” itself! “Hip hinging, the primary movement for the Kettlebell Swing reinforces neutral spine, a position where the spine is in its correct anatomical position. By utilizing the power of the hips throughout the range of motion of the hip hinge in place of the lower back, incorrect firing patterns in the recruitment of muscle from the posterior chain can be corrected.” “Why the Kettlebell Swing is the Solution for Low Back Pain” Author: Matt Reynolds | March 13, 2015 https://www.onnit.com/academy/why-the-kettlebell-swing-is-the-solution-for-low-back-pain/
Achieve that lean physique you’ve always wanted
It’s a fact. Multi-functional, whole body workouts are superior to machines that you would typically find in gyms. Furthermore, kettlebell exercises isolate the muscle for improving body composition, tone, and strength. Kettlebells strengthen the body’s tendons and ligaments, make your joints tougher and lessening the risk of injury. It’s also a great core workout! To do many of the popular kettlebells lifts properly, you will be required to activate your core or midsection. The effect of this will be a stronger back and abs. Men can look forward to broad shoulders, six-pack abdominals, toned arms and thinner midsection. Women don’t have to worry about bulking up either. Women will get a lean, firm shape that enhances the best of the female body.
Strengthen joints and alleviate pain
Just ask your friends that do kettlebell workouts or train with them regularly. They don’t have as many of those pesky aches and pains. As a matter of fact, what you WILL hear is that it took AWAY their knee pain, lower back pain, shoulder stiffness, etc. KB workouts will make your joints feel much better. Mobility will be regained and energy will be at an all-time high. Kettlebell teaches balance, reveals any misalignments, exposes your weak areas and doesn’t let you cheat! This all leads to a much healthier and happier musculoskeletal system.
Fat gets the boot! First and foremost, lifting any kind of weight increases your metabolism. Secondly, the strength training involved will create dense muscle mass, burning calories from the fat stores, even after the workout is long over. Finally, it adds another level of endurance to your routine, Power-Endurance. Power-endurance is your ability to sustain fast muscle contractions over a period of time. While both strength-endurance and power-endurance are essential qualities to possess, power-endurance gets the nod for fat loss. Power-endurance = massive fat burning.
Why spend $1,000s on expensive equipment? Two kettlebells and a good instructor are all that you need to increase muscular endurance, lose fat, regain mobility, and get stronger. And, with the addition of a proper nutrition plan, any excess fat that you have will melt off quickly. So what are you waiting for? 2018 is here!
