With many gyms and fitness centers still closed or closing back up soon due to the sharp increase of COVID cases across the country, working out at home is the new normal. For a lot of people, it’s difficult to recreate the type of exercise they can get on multiple machines at the gym at home, but kettlebells are a great way to add some weight training into your routine. Online retailers know shoppers are looking to load up on at-home gym products this year more than in previous years, and there’s still time left to purchase a sturdy set of kettlebells.
Kettlebells are a core part of a complete home gym set up, but don’t forget about items including dumbbells and exercise bikes to get that weight-based and cardio training that will keep you looking toned and feeling healthy as we enter the holidays and new year.
Kettlebells might look like just another set of weights, but they’re often so much more versatile, especially when it comes to arm workouts. Deciding on a set in a weight and style that aligns with your current fitness level and future fitness goals will help you get the most out of your purchase. Kettlebells are heavier than dumbells, which typically come in a set of two. You really only need one kettlebell to get a great workout in, but if you want to use kettlebells in multiple parts of your routine, investing in a few at different weights will really supercharge your workouts and strengthen different parts of your body.
Solid cast iron is definitely the preferred type of material for most kettlebells. The material means they’re built to last, have consistent weight throughout the body of the kettlebell, and they can take a beating if the kettlebell accidentally falls out of your grip during your workout. Some cast iron kettlebells are coated in neoprene to prevent damage to the floor in the event that this occurs. If you typically work out indoors, kettlebells coated in neoprene or rubber are probably your best bet.
Size matters when it comes to kettlebells. The heavier the weight, the larger the kettlebell is. Before you purchase a set of kettlebells, have an idea of what part of your workout you want to incorporate kettlebells into and what kind of weight you need to maximize results from that activity. If you’re looking to tone and burn fat, investing in a set of low weight dumbells can help you get those reps in. If you’re looking to build muscle, larger weights at fewer reps can help you get the pump you’re looking for.
