Kettlebell training has been gaining popularity over the last few years. Kettlebells are a great way to increase strength and power without the added stress on joints. Another great way to include kettlebells into your training routine is to pair exercises together (strength circuit) for a conditioning effect. Because of their unique shape they are also great for improving core strength and stabilization. For more variation in your training routine include 1-2 of these kettlebell exercises into your next training session.
