It doesn’t take much to see that kettlebell-mania is popping up all over the country. While this traditionally Russian strength training tool was relatively unheard of just a few years ago, it has now become the cornerstone of core body workouts.
After a high-profile controversy surrounding Jillian Michael’s misinformed workout DVD, kettlebells became the hot new tool to sculpt muscles and boost core strength. While Jillian’s technique may not have exactly made the cut, experts agree that following proper guidelines when working with kettlebells can provide an intense and effective workout.
If you are new to kettlebells, or need to brush up on kettlebell protocol, here are tips and tricks from fitness experts to set you on the right course. Have kettlebell tips of your own? Share them in the comments section below!
