Are you looking for a great workout that you can do at home with little equipment? If so, kettlebell complexes may be perfect for you!
Before we get into kettlebell complexes, let’s talk a bit about kettlebells and how they work.
How do kettlebells work?
According to experts, a kettlebell workout may help you burn up to 400 calories in 20 minutes.
A kettlebell looks like a cast-iron cannonball with a handle on top. They come in various weights. You’ll use them as you do things like lunges, lifts, and shoulder presses.
You may have to use more than one type of kettlebell for your workout, depending on how much you weigh and the strength of your arms.
To find out which weight is right for you, ask a trainer at your local gym or consult with a trainer in our Darkside University community. They’ll be able to help you choose the best weights for your needs.
Kettlebell workouts get your heart pumping and use up to 20 calories per minute: about as much as running a 6-minute mile. This makes them especially great for weight loss.
Kettlebells work your whole body, helping you tone and strengthen muscles like the biceps and triceps, shoulders, hamstrings, and glutes, all at once.
Now that we’ve got the basics about kettlebells out of the way, let’s learn about kettlebell complexes and how they work.
Kettlebell workouts offer a lot of flexibility. You can include a few of the moves in your own workout or do a dedicated kettlebell workout a few times a week.
