EXERCISE YOUR CORE
The kettlebell stimulates tremendous abdominal contraction because of the explosive conditioning movements. Basically, this means you’re working your abs even when you’re “not working” your abs. The abdominal contraction and coordinated breathing provide a very high level of conditioning that has made it popular among fighters and other elite level athletes.
Kettlebells are so effective because they stimulate the muscles and surpass standard cardio exercises. They enable you to increase your strength, build up speed as well as your endurance level at the same time. Many kettlebell exercises flow together. You don’t really even need to put the weight down. This gives you a great strength and endurance workout in a shorter amount of time.
