Kettlebell Training – Quick and Effective Muscle Building


Solid muscles and less fat around the hips – that's the promise of the super-effective Kettlebell Training. If you haven't tried it yet, it's high time you do. In a short amount of time, you can do a lot for your body.

What is a Kettlebell?

A Kettlebell, also known as a kettlebell weight, looks like a bowling ball with a handle. You can grip the ball well by this handle. Kettlebells come in various weight levels for beginners and advanced users. They aren't a modern invention; they were already used in the 18th century.

With this free weight, you can design your training particularly effectively and flexibly. However, learning the correct execution of the exercises and initially being supervised by a trainer is important. You can perform exercises with one or two Kettlebells.

Which kettlebell weight is right for me?

The suitable weight depends on your training level. For beginners, we recommend 6 to 8 kg for women and 12 to 16 kg for men. Well-trained and advanced men can also train with 16-24 kg, and women with 12-16 kg. Kettlebells between 24 and 32 kg should only be used by highly advanced Kettlebell professionals.

However, the appropriate weight also depends on the exercise. Two-handed exercises are performed with slightly less weight, while one-handed exercises require slightly more weight. You can do push presses with a heavier Kettlebell compared to presses. In general, always start with lighter weights and then increase them once you have more experience with the equipment. Swing exercises must be well controlled to avoid injury.

Why is kettlebell training so effective?

Training with the kettlebell is functional training. This means that not only individual muscles are trained, but the entire body is engaged. The movements resemble everyday motions, making your body truly fit for life. Goodbye, back pain!

With the Kettlebell, you can provide new stimuli for your muscles and approach problem areas from various angles. This training is also suitable for balance and for advancing yourself in other areas of training.

The Best Kettlebell Exercises

The kettlebell offers numerous possibilities, which you can discuss best with your personal trainer. Classic Kettlebell Training exercises include swings, presses, and squats. Always ensure that you can also slow down the kettlebell's momentum; otherwise, you risk injuring your joints. For example, in the Kettlebell Swing, you swing the kettlebell from the ground between your legs to a horizontal position. Keep your back straight and lift your hips.
