Lately, I have been quite liking the kettlebell workouts. Kettlebells are the trendiest thing in the world of fitness, after protein shakes. Now again you’d think, why kettlebell? why not dumbbells? And my answer to that will be it all depends on what you are trying to achieve. Kettlebells target a slightly different type of muscles group than the dumbbells. And there are certain type of exercises which can be performed better with the way the kettlebell is shaped vs a dumbbell. In the long run, the idea is to alternate between the two when you are working out, to get the maximum benefits.
The exercises I have listed below can be performed using either a dumbbell or a kettlebell. In the pictures I am using a 10 pound kettlebell. Please feel free to use heavier weights to challenge yourself.
