Kettlebell Workouts Torch Calories, Save Time, & Boost Mobility
Kettlebell workouts have been around for a long time but are becoming more and more popular for rapid fatloss especially with women.
The reason kettlebell exercises are so effective for fatloss, weightloss, and fitness is they train your entire body with fullbody functional movements that improve posture and promote health.
Kettlebell workouts target every single muscle in your body. They also keep your mind engaged and keep your workouts from getting boring. So not only do you burn fat, get strong, improve mobility and balance, your mind body connection gets stronger too.
If you've always wanted to explore mind body fitness but Pilates and yoga are not your thing then this is an amazing option.
Kettlebell Workouts for Fatloss
Kettlebell exercises are awesome because they mimic real movement. They're also very dynamic and can provide an amazing cardio workout.
It's important to start with the basics like kettlebell swings, one arm rows, figure 8 holds, snatches, cleans and squat presses. But don't worry the basics are tough enough to blast some serious fat.

What Size Kettlebell Do You Need?
If you're a first time kettlebell user it's important to determine your level of fitness before choosing a weight.
Kettlebells are measured in both pounds and kilos so be very careful not to get confused when ordering.
Another thing to keep in mind is the style of kettlebell. You can buy cast iron, cap barbell, kettlebell stacks with adjustable handles, vinyl coated, and even sand filled. It's really a matter of preference.
I've only tried the cast iron and vinyl coated types and they felt exactly the same. Check out the video to get weight recommendations from kettlebell expert Anthony D.
