Kettlebells Involve the Whole Body
A Kettlebell has a very unique shape and this causes your center of gravity to change. It moves continuously and your body must respond. All of your stabilizers, including the glutes, calves and abs must be engaged to keep you from losing your balance.

Kettlebells are a Great Cardiovascular Exercise
The lockout position is at the top of the Jerk or Snatch, where the Kettlebell sits on the wrist bone and the shoulder sinks so that the scapula supports the weight.
Resting in this position is what allows the lifter to complete high repetitions. Without proper form you would not be able to do this.
This increases bone density which can prevent brittle bones and osteoporosis, which happens to many women as they age. Women need strength training to avoid this and many other diseases.
Kettlebells Increase Power and Endurance
Compound exercises, using more than one muscle group at a time, burn more calories. These exercises also increase power and endurance because these exercises require more oxygen to the muscles. The body works harder much faster and quickly fatigues.
Check out some of the exercises that I have in this video to get you started on your way to developing a great body with core strength and endurance in a fraction of time that you would spend at the gym.
