Tone Up With Kettlebells

The kettlebell is a cast iron weight shaped like a cannonball with a handle. It was first used in the 1800's to weigh wares in European marketplaces. Vendors would have contests with each other swinging and tossing the weights. Strongmen incorporated the kettlebell into their training with technical lifts and required skills.

It was initially used to train Russian Military Forces, and today the US military, law enforcement officers and fitness enthusiasts use it.

You get a whole body work out when using a kettlebell. You will sculpt and tone all muscles - from the ones deep down to the ones on the surface - as you engage your core muscles. A kettlebell workout builds strength and flexibility and provides intensive cardio.

Kettlebells burn fat fast without bulking you up. You will see the results when you have to tighten your belt to the next notch with these titles from our digital collection.
