6 Simple Kettlebell Exercises to do in 20 Minutes
Kettlebells have been around for a while, but if you are anything like me, you are both nervous and excited about anything that looks new to you in the gym or fitness equipment. I first came across kettlebells about 2 years ago in my gym and I was unsure how to use them until I asked others. They are like normal dumbbells, but they are shaped a lot different and this makes them perfect for some exercises that are a bit more challenging with a dumbbell. I like them because they are an even center of gravity so they lend themselves to someone who is a bit clumsy, too, like myself. Here are some great kettlebell exercises you can do in just 20 minutes. I promise you will be sweating by the end. I sure was!
I should note that kettlebells come in different weights just like dumbbells. I am using a 5 pound one here, but I have seen them all the way up to 50 pounds before. If you are new to strength training, start small and increase as they become less challenging.
