Kettlebells are one of the most dynamic pieces of gym equipment that you can have in your home gym.
“Kettlebells are exciting and versatile, especially in flows, chains of explosive exercises done in succession,” says trainer Eric Leija, creator of Men’s Health’s Kettlehell workout program. “I can do anything I want to do with kettlebells that I’d do with dumbbells. But kettlebells are way more fun.”
They can be used in an infinite amount of ways thanks to their design.
The shape of the kettlebell make them an even better option for single-arm, multi-joint movements like cleans and snatches,” Brett Williams, NASM-CPT certified trainer told Men’s Health. “When the need arises, you can also grab onto a kettlebell’s handles, or even the two bars connecting the weight to the handles, sometimes called the ‘horns,’ with both hands. That type of grip allows for challenging curls, presses, and more.” (Looking for a killer kettlebell workout?
