MBody Strength Kettlebells by mbodystrength

The iron cannonball that I am referring to in terms of training equipment is the ancient kettlebell. Check out the following 2 simple drills that you can implement in order to develop superior cardiovascular fitness.

1. Double-Arm Kettlebell Swings: The double-arm kettlebell swing is the base lift of the kettlebell. With this particular exercise you have the ability to develop superior cardiovascular fitness and overall conditioning with a single simple movement. The movement or particular exercise known as the swing integrates hundreds of your muscles and increases your exertion level so that you develop a high level of conditioning in order to improve your recovery, endurance, and enhance your fitness in every way possible. To perform this drill you simply will hold the bell at your groin. From here the objective is to swing the bell back and forth in an arc from between your legs up to your chest level. This is done by you smoothly and continuously flexing and extending at both your knees and hips in a continuous manner. This will create the necessary momentum in order to get the bell moving through a constant arc of motion.

2. The Full Range Double-Arm Kettlebell Swing: For this drill you will start in the same exact way as the first killer cardio drill mentioned. The only difference is that you will simply execute the hip snap motion in order to get the kettlebell moving in an arc from between your legs all the way up to above your head. You will find that the full range of motion is much more intense than bringing the bell to the chest height level. Once again this more advanced version of the swing will further intensify your kettlebell training and help you to develop a superior level of power and cardiovascular conditioning! Give it a try!
