5 Ways to Exercise Using Kettlebells

Kettlebells are often associated with light exercise and supplementary conditioning, but they can also offer some substantial core training and muscle gain that is as profitable as free weights or fixed weights. Kettlebells are also perfect for active recovery providing some light exercise to recover muscles on rest days. Here are five ways to use kettlebells for a home or gym workout. 

Kettlebell Deadlift 

Kettlebell deadlifts are the best exercises to start with at Fitness Cartel as they build your core strength and make more advanced variations and exercises possible. These deadlifts are designed to work the hamstrings, glutes, and calves, some of the muscles in the posterior chain.  

 

Kettlebell deadlifts are simple to carry out, but it’s important to know your capabilities and follow professional instructions to avoid injuries. If you’re new to deadlifts, use lighter weights to start with and a few repetitions. Stand with legs shoulder-width apart and hinge your hips to pick them up.  

Kettlebell Swing 

Probably, the most well-known kettlebell exercise is the kettlebell swing which is often practiced in gyms everywhere. The kettlebells swing is a little more advanced than the deadlift; it’s a ballistic exercise meaning that it’s carried out in quick repetitions and trains the posterior chain.

To perform a kettlebell swing, you should stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and hinge your hips to grasp the kettlebell handle. Inhale and swing the kettlebell between your legs, keeping the shoulders and hips still, then use the momentum to raise the bell to chest height, exhaling.   

Goblet Squat 

Goblet squats are excellent for the posterior chain in general, but the quads and calves in particular; this exercise is also ideal for improving flexibility and mobility. The goblet squat can be used as part of a dedicated kettlebell routine or as light training for days of active recovery. 

 

To carry out a goblet squat, you will need a kettlebell of a suitable weight and size; beginners should always start with lighter weights and build up strength. Standing with feet shoulder-width apart, crouch as if sitting down and holding the kettlebell horn. Stand and sit with the kettlebell.   

Farmer’s Carry 

The are many kettlebells carries that can be used to build core strength and exercise the entire body. Kettlebell carries are excellent for improving the gait, enhancing balance and stability, gaining strength for everyday activities, improving general endurance, and boosting strength.  

 

Today, we will introduce you to the Farmer’s carry – one of many kettlebells carries you can try. To try the Farmer’s carry, you will need kettlebells for suitable size and weight and some space to walk. Simply pick up the bells and walk forwards, holding them instead by your side.    

Turkish Getup 

The Turkish Getup – also called the TGU – is a full-body exercise that builds core strength and improves balance and coordination. Start by lying down, holding the kettlebell handle, then using a range of slow and concentrated movements, stand up with your arm raised upwards. When you reach a standing position, begin to sit down again, noticing any of the strained areas.
