Everyone has seen the racks of the ball type weights with what looks like a fat bar handle on top of the ball, but there are still so many people that have neglected to explore the world of the kettlebell. A kettlebell workout can give you amazing results, and those results come fast. Workout Gloves for kettlebells are a consideration especially for beginners.
Any Kettlebell exercise requires multiple joints to work together simultaneously. Because you're engaging more muscle groups, you will burn more calories than isolation exercises focusing on a single or smaller muscle group. Here's a great kettlebell workout to get you started. Whether you're a beginner or expert you'll gain strength and lose fat.
Workout Gloves for Kettlebells
One of the challenges of a kettlebell workout is actually handling and steadying the weight. You'll find that it will quickly test the strength of your grip. GymPaws® gloves for kettlebells are great because they are 100% genuine leather which allow for natural hand rotation, and the slight padding eases hand fatigue.
1. Kettlebell Deadlift – Begin with a kettlebell on the floor directly in front of you. Stand with your feet a bit wider than shoulder-width apart with your toes turned outward slightly. Squat down and grab the kettlebell with an overhand grip. Stand up and while keeping your chest up and back straight, squeeze your butt at the top and return all the way to the ground. Perform 3 sets of 10 reps.
2. Kettlebell Swing – Start with your feet once again slightly wider than shoulder-width apart and your toes pointed outward. Pick up the kettlebell off the floor and keep your arms loose while you send your hips backward and into the starting position. Slightly bend your knees and use your lower back and hips to swing the kettlebell forward, then push it backward through your legs. Swing it forward again until you push the kettlebell out and your arms are parallel with the floor. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.
3. Squat Thruster – Start with two kettlebells by gripping both firmly by there handles and pull your fists towards your chin and keeping your elbows pointed down. The weights should be resting along the outside of your forearms. Keep your arms tucked close to your body and squat down; when you are in the squat position, shoot the kettlebells overhead as you stand. Bring the kettlebells back down, and repeat. Perform 3 sets of 10 reps.
4. One Arm Pull – Stand with your feet about shoulder width apart and grab the kettlebell with your left hand and let it hang in front of your body with your arm straight. Bend your knees and use your biceps with your legs to raise the kettlebell rapidly up the center of your body until your hand is about eye level, and repeat. Perform 3 sets of 10 reps for each arm.
