So just what is a kettlebell? A kettlebell is a cast iron ball with a handle attached to the top of it (picture a cannonball with a handle on the top). This design makes kettlebells different from training with dumbbells because the weight of a kettlebell is not distributed evenly, thus creating the need to counter balance and stabilize during your workout (Aha ... core strength!).

By their nature, typical Ottawa kettlebell exercises build strength and endurance

particularly in the lower back, legs, and shoulders, and increase grip strength. The basic movements, such as the swing, snatch, and the clean and jerk, engage the entire body at once, and in a way that mimics real world activities such as shoveling or farm work.

Unlike the exercises with dumbbells or barbells, Ottawa kettlebell exercises often involve large numbers of repetitions. Kettlebell exercises are in their nature holistic; therefore they work several muscles simultaneously and may be repeated continuously for several minutes or with short breaks.

This combination makes the exercise partially aerobic and more similar to High-intensity interval training rather than to traditional weight lifting. In one study, kettlebell enthusiasts performing a 20 minute snatch workout were measured to burn, on average, 13.6 calories/minute aerobically and 6.6 calories/minute anaerobically during the entire workout - "equivalent to running a 6-minute mile pace".

The movements used in Ottawa kettlebell exercise can be dangerous

to those who have back or shoulder problems, or a weak core However, if done properly they can also be very beneficial to health. They offer improved mobility, range of motion and increased strength.

The most common weight of an Ottawa kettlebell ranges between 4 kg - 9 pounds and 44 - 105 pounds. I start most women with an 8 – 12 kg kettlebell, our first goal is to teach people including women to be able to swing the 16 kg Kettlebell this is done by our students learning proper technique and using the entire core not just the arms and low back like so many people end up doing.

Additionally, working out with an Ottawa kettlebell guarantees to get your heart pumping which translates into aerobic and metabolic benefits. I've clocked anywhere between 500 and 900 calories burned during my kettlebell workouts. With rest breaks and the increase in heart rate, it's like getting a cardio interval workout while lifting and gaining strength.

Ottawa Kettlebells are great for men and women, overweight or skinny. If you are overweight, you will melt fat by burning tons of calories. If you are skinny, you will develop muscle mass

Compact in design, the Ottawa kettlebell is a complete, portable gym. Imagine truly being able to hide your gym under the bed or behind a couch when not in use. Millions of people spend tons of money on gym equipment that ends up being a fancy clothes hanger.

Not only will you actually USE your Ottawa kettlebell, but you never have to worry about where to put it in your house. It's so small. It's portability means that you can take it anywhere and workout anytime. You can even get creative and paint your own design on it.

5 More Reasons Kettlebell Training is just down Right Awesome


5 More Reasons Kettlebell Training is just down Right Awesome

1. The solution for busy people Busy people want the biggest bang for the buck. Kettlebells can be the solution to trying to squeeze cardio, strength AND flexibility training in an already overbooked schedule. Because of the intensive nature, the workout duration must be kept short.


2. Greater fat loss Fat gets the ol' one-two-three punch. First, there is the extremely high metabolic cost of throwing the weight around. Second, it's a strength training workout creating dense muscle mass, which burns calories from fat stores all day long while increasing your resting metabolism. Finally, combine that with the fat burning effects of human growth hormone that is stimulated by these kinds of whole-body, complex movements. There is no better way to burn fat. This is why sprinters have ripped muscles and marathon runners have a skinny look.


3. Very different from dumbbells and barbells Anyone who has picked up a kettlebell has felt the difference. The off centered weight of a KB recruits more stabilizer muscles and works the targeted muscles through a wider range of motion. It's because of the off-center design of the KB. Isolation exercises such as those done with dumbbells and barbells do not hit those stabilizing muscles to the same degree.


Very different . . . " It's challenging," said Pavel Tsatsouline, a kettlebell trainer and former instructor for the Russian special forces who helped introduce kettlebells to the United States. "It challenges the heart, the muscles, everything. You get a workout quickly. But you have to work. You can't sit and watch CNN and do kettlebells. It feels very liberating. I think people are tired of sitting around like gerbils on machines. " --- New York Times, December 2008


4. Strengthens every muscle from head-to-toe Kettlebell training consists of whole-body movement exercises. It's well-known that compound, whole body movements typical of kettlebell exercises are superior to machines that isolate muscles for improving muscle tone, body composition, and strength. Further, kettlebells strengthen the tendons and ligaments, making the joints tougher and less-susceptible to injury.


5. Don't confuse kettlebells with conventional weight training or bodybuilding. We focus on (a) movements, not muscles, (b) whole-body, functional training, (c) strength as a function of mobility, (d) cardio and strength combined
