Killer Kettlebell Exercises You Can Do

Published on April 14, 2022

Why do you want to use a kettlebell? Kettlebells are fun and frustratingly addictive, but most people don’t know how to use them. Thankfully, you can do plenty of exercises with a kettlebell that helps build strength. There are basic moves and complex, full-body workouts. Almost anyone can benefit from kettlebells, and this guide should give you the information you need to get started.

Kettlebell swing

The kettlebell swing is an incredibly effective, full-body exercise that burns fat and builds strength. It works the muscles in the back of your body, the muscles in the front, and all of the muscles in between.

Kettlebell swings are also a convenient exercise because they require only one piece of equipment. Unlike other basic movements like deadlifts, squats, and pushups, you don’t need to go to a gym and mess around with bars, plates, or even a pullup bar. Once you’ve got a single cast iron kettlebell at home, you can do hundreds of different exercises.

Kettlebell squat

The kettlebell squat is one of the best exercises for adding strength and size to your quads. Squats are an excellent exercise for building both lower body strength and mass. It’s also one of the best exercises for building core strength. It’s an excellent exercise to develop the gluteus maximus and quadriceps.

Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, toes pointed out, holding a kettlebell with both hands at chest height. Keep arms tucked in close to sides, elbows pointing down. Engage the core, push hips back, bend knees to lower into a deep squat, and keep chest lifted and weight in heels. Pause at the bottom, then push through heels to return to start. That’s one rep, so if you are interested in this exercise, don’t forget to get your kettlebells in Perth.

Kettlebell windmill

A Kettlebell windmill is a type of exercise performed with the help of kettlebell sets. In this exercise, you have to hold the kettlebell on the ground parallel to your shoulder and then stand up. Now in this standing position, you have to move your hand as if you are sweeping the floor and then going back to the initial position.

The kettlebell windmill mainly works on your lower body and strengthens your hip muscles. It also works on your core muscles and improves your posture. It is one of the most effective exercises for strengthening your hips, hamstrings, glutes, and quadriceps.

Kettlebell reverse lunge

A Kettlebell reverse lunge is an excellent exercise for the lower body, specifically the glutes and legs. With this exercise, you’ll be working your quads, hamstrings, glutes and building balance and stability in the core.

Get a kettlebell from a kettlebell rack, hold it by the handle, and stand upright with your feet shoulder-width apart. Lunge backward with one leg, bending your front knee at 90 degrees whilst keeping your back straight.

Your back knee should hover just above the floor. Ensure that both knees are bent at right angles, and make sure your front knee doesn’t go over your toes. Push up through the front foot to return to a standing position. Repeat on the other side.

We hope you found the above exercises to be good exercise alternatives.
