Now when you hear the word “cardio” don’t always assume that it is aerobic cardio. The fact is that you can burn a ton more calories, body fat, and achieve superior cardiovascular fitness by engaging in anaerobic activity. This is where the overhead kettlebell swing comes into play!
By now you may be familiar with the ancient kettlebell. The kettlebell is an ancient strength and conditioning device that has been used by the world’s greatest athletes and strongmen for over three centuries. This device is perfect for you to use to execute an array of cardio exercises right at home. Even though kettlebell training is an extraordinarily versatile form of training I am only going to discuss a single exercise for the sake of this article. The overhead kettlebell swing is a high intensity cardio and muscular endurance exercise that is sure to give you superior cardiovascular fitness and will incinerate your body fat.
The double arm overhead kettlebell swing is performed by you grabbing the bell with both arms and swinging it from between your legs all the way up to above your head. In order to execute this lift you must be very familiar with the proper technique that is involved in the movement. To begin, in order to swing the kettlebell you must learn how to perform a certain movement known as the hip snap. This is done by you constantly and fluently flexing and extending at both your hips and knees to create the necessary momentum to swing the kettlebell.
Once you initiate this movement you will want to allow the bell to build up enough velocity in order to take it all the way up to above your head. You need to make sure that you are in total control of the weight and that you have plenty of ceiling clearance when you perform it.
This cardio body fat blasting workout will change your life! This is a cardio exercise that I guarantee will burn fat right off of your body and get you into the best shape of your life. Remember that anyone can train hard, but only the best train smart!
