How To Just Use One Kettlebell For Weight Loss

Losing weight can be an expensive thing, although I think most of us are aware it’s worth it. Today I am going to show you how you can use just one Kettlebell for weight loss and do it quickly.

Kettlebells Are Immensely Effective

Whether you’ve used them before or not, Kettlebells are something you should seriously consider. They are not just another weight lifting device for hardcore gym goers, far from it in fact. This is what I used to think too.

A kettlebell is like the ultimate fat burning, muscle toning, fitness enhancing tool. As I said in the opening paragraph, just one is enough to give you some great exercises that are not particularly difficult to perform, and will get your body in shape in no time.

So You’ve Got Your Kettlebell – What Next?

Put it to work! The great thing about Kettlebells is you can perform some very effective exercises that are easy for beginners, and there are also more advanced exercises for the more veteran gym goers and Kettlebell enthusiasts.

Kettlebell swings are a great calorie burning exercise. I have made a blog post before which covers some of the exercises you can perform.

Why Are Kettlebells So Effective

I’ve talked about this before, but to sum it up quickly I’ll give you a handy info box below:

  • Kettlebells’ center of mass is below the wrist, which support swinging/ballistic motions
  • These motions mean that you are ALWAYS exercising more than one muscle at a time
  • This means your body is burning fat rapidly, toning your whole body, and getting a “total body workout”
  • When you put all of them together, you have a weight loss MACHINE

If you try to compare a dumbbell to a kettlebell, the KB will win every time. Perhaps a DB will win for “building bulk muscle and becoming a beefcake” but the KB wins for fat loss, weight loss, and muscle tone. That’s what you prefer surely?

If you’d like to find the middle ground, try using a dumbbell to perform kettlebell style exercises. You can find kettlebell exercises here, or you can subscribe to my weekly newsletter to receive a new exercise in your inbox every Friday.

I was wondering if these could be used by seniors and if so if the routine was the same? I’d like to give them a try but I’m a little concerned about damaging this old body even more.
