What is Kettlebell training?

A kettlebell is a very innovative piece of equipment for strength and endurance training. A ball made from cast iron with a handle attached to it, its design is different from dumbbells. The purpose is similar to that of a dumbbell, although kettlebell exercises tend to be faster, have more momentum and involve more repetitions. Because of this, kettlebell training tends to outperform dumbbells in yielding results in stamina and endurance.

Unlike dumbbells, a kettlebell's weight is not distributed evenly all across which makes it necessary for the one using it to stabilise during exercise. Kettlebell training has gained popularity recently and has become a part of many workout routines. There are great reasons as to why it is now becoming such a hot trend to use the kettlebell .
