Kettlebells have increasingly become popular within fitness community and now can be found in most Australian gyms. Kettlebell is a great piece of fitness equipment, forcing to engage your core and used in a predominantly functional training. Meaning that you will work a number of different muscle groups within each exercise. However I would strongly advice for anyone just starting out to avoid using kettlebells. One first must develop strong core and be comfortable in perfuming more basic exercise, prior to progressing to the more advance exercises using kettlebells. While, it’s great fitness equipment, when used incorrectly can cause severe lower back and shoulder injuries.
