What are Kettlebells and Kettlebell Weights?
Kettlebells are cannonball shaped weights with handles attached and are usually made from cast iron or moulded rubber. Kettlebells come in various different weights and sizes and can be used to help develop core strength, improve grip strength and provide overall muscle development.
Kettlebell weights are generally thought to have first originated from Russia where they were used by the Russian Army, however this is not entirely true. Ketllebells were actually first used in the Highlands of Scotland in ancient Highland Games and a variation of the kettlebell is still used today in the weight over the bar event.
There are endless combinations of kettlebell exercises that can be performed, just like other free weights there are literally dozens of kettlebell exercises. Before trying any of these Kettlebell exercises please perform a proper warm up to prevent injury. 10 to 15 minutes of light aerobic work followed by stretching exercises should be an adequite warm up.
