Kettlebells are a form of Ballistic training. This means that it helps in maximizing explosive acceleration and minimize deaccelration helps in stimulating the entire core musculature. This leads to massive improvements in core strength.
Kettlebell exercises are multi-planar. This means unlike strength training machines kettlebells move your body in all 3 planes of motion, that is- Sagittal, Frontal and Transverse. This ensure all rounded strength in the core musculature and improving range of motions and flexibility.
Kettlebell exercises work the postural muscles in a functional way and help in improving posture and alignment. Exercises like the Kettlebell Swings are explosive movements performed from a hip hinge position, which will make your glutes, hamstrings, lower back, mid back, and trapezius very powerful. This will then translate to jumping higher, running faster, and kicking harder. Most importantly, it will lead to better posture.
