It’s not uncommon to hear your chiropractor talk about a kettlebell every few sessions. Kettlebell exercises are a great way to keep you healthy! When used correctly, kettlebell swings have optimal benefits. If you haven’t already, you might want to consider investing in one or two. Read on to learn why kettlebells are so important.
- Build Up Your Endurance
If you’re looking to improve your endurance or build up strength, this is a great way to get started. Working out with a kettlebell is like running on the treadmill and lifting weights simultaneously. We want you to keep your heart rate doing as you workout arm, leg, and body muscles.
- Strengthen Core
Kettlebell swings can improve your core by working out the abdominal muscles and obliques. We recommend swinging from side to side to accomplish this goal. If you’re participating in our weight management counseling, this is one way to get a six-pack.
- Decreases Chance of Injury
The best way to prevent the risk of future injury is to get in a full-body workout. Try to target and strengthen some of the smaller muscles so that they can better support areas that are prone to more injuries. That includes the joints, tendons, and ligaments. Kettlebell swings will do just that.
- Improve Your Balance
The last benefit you might find useful is its effectiveness in helping you improve your balance. Injuries involving a fall tend to be more severe. It’s not uncommon for our patients to struggle with their first few kettlebell workouts. The more you practice, the better your results will be.
The Power of Kettlebell Swings
