Its not a secret that we love Kettlebells at KDR. But why?

When people first come to KDR they are usually (this is based off on our experience and the clientele that comes in) de-conditioned and not as strong as they could be.  Plus, they are generally intimidated!  Coming into a weight room full of equipment you don’t know how to use or have never seen before can be very overwhelming.  So, we need a tool that isn’t intimidating, can help bring up someone’s conditioning level fast and that also helps to build strength quickly.
 
Kettlebells are a great way we can accomplish these goals, i.e. improve your aerobic fitness and get you stronger at the same time.  PLUS!  Thanks to social media and TV, KB’s are a piece of gym equipment most people have seen before so for beginners, KB’s aren’t that intimidating.  After all…it’s just a ball with a handle.
 

According to a recent study by American Council of Exercise demonstrated that Kettlebell training significantly boosts aerobic capacity, while also improving strength and dynamic balance.
 
“Kettlebell training increases strength, which you’d expect, but you also get these other benefits,” says Porcari. “You don’t really do resistance training expecting to get an aerobic capacity benefit, and you don’t do resistance training and expect to improve your core strength unless of course, you’re specifically doing core-strengthening exercises. But with kettlebells, you’re able to get a wide variety of benefits with one pretty intense workout.”
 
 
 
My training is heavily influenced by kettlebells as well as most of our members. Here are just a few things I have witnessed due to training with KBs:
  • Increased ability to go longer during runs – without running.
  • Increased ability to go faster during runs – without running.
  • Increased strength in core, glutes, hamstrings AND back.
  • Decreased back pain.
  • Decreased knee pain.
  • Better posture.
  • More power and explosiveness.

Hi! My name is Jamie. The current state of fitness and health is too complicated, in my opinion. I want to try and make being fit and healthy as simple as possible. Lift some weights, get your heart rate up, eat real food, treat yourself when you deserve and don’t stress the scale!
