6 Week Beginner Kettlebell Workout: 1 of 9: 06/29/2012
We have all seen those balls with handles on them at the gym, but how many of us have actually used one. The kettlebell is probably the most versitile exercise tool, yet many individuals pass them up. The great thing about kettlebells is that you can turn any resistance training workout into a cardio workout, and if you do the workout with high intensity and minimal breaks you can burn more fat. Seriously, burn more fat. Why? High intensity training has been shown to increase exercise post oxygen consumption (EPOC) in study participants, and this rise in EPOC leads to larger amounts of fat burned after exercise. Don't wait on using kettlebells, get started now. This workout series is brought to you by Marcus Martinez from Mbodystrength.com and each week, for the next five weeks, I will cover all 9 of his installments for this workout plan.
