Benefits unique to Kettlebell exercise

Kettlebell exercise allows natural, continuous, dynamic movements with a compact and unbalanced weight. These exercises are muscle building with the potential to be aerobic or High Intensity Training (HIT) as well. These exercises move through a wider range of smooth movement that use more muscles than the typical dumbbell exercise. Also these utilize more wrist and forearm power to control the weights that are held by a handle. These exercises give more defining and toning type of muscle work.

Kettlebell basic moves

Foundation moves

The foundation of the kettlebell exercise is the swinging of the kettlebell weight with the arms.

One arm swing

Two handed swing

Basic moves

The Clean

Start position: feet hip width apart, kettlebell between feet on the ground, weight is on the heels.
Lift the kettelbell from the ground, with knees bent, spine neutral, shoulders over knees.
Straighten up as you take the kettlebell from the ground up to the shoulder & hold the stomach muscles tight.

The Press

Start position: standing position, feet hip width apart.
Take the Kettelbell from your shoulder position up over your head to full arm extension and hold.
This can be the next step after The Clean. You can have the other hand in a fist and hold your stomach muscles tight.
The Press takes the kettlebell from chest to full extension of the arm overhead.
This exercise can also be done with both arms if you have 2 kettlebells.

The Snatch

The snatch takes the kettlebell from between the legs to up above the head. This starts the same as The Clean.
Swing the kettlebell from between your legs up close to your body, when you reach about eye level, punch up to the final position with arm fully extended overhead.

Turkish get up

Turkish get up is a complex series of moves that take you from holding the kettlebell above you in the laying position to a standing position. This is a move where you have to know proper form so that you get benefits and don’t get hurt. I have broken the process down into 8 frames to show the procession of positions that are required to accomplish the Turkish get up.
