Get Rid of Body Fat and Pump Up Your Muscles with Kettlebell Exercises
If everyone who uses a Kettlebell – trainers, fitness champions, celebrities, pro athletes, and even Kettlebell workout neophytes – ever got together, their sheer number would motivate anyone to try Kettlebell exercises and eventually become a Kettlebell devotee.
Whoa, Nelly! A devotee? Isn’t that claiming a bit too much?
No, it isn’t. In fact, Kettlebell devotees do exist, and are found in various parts of the world, from all walks of life.
Many who perform Kettlebell exercises look back on the day they first discovered the beauty of doing a Kettlebell workout, and pat themselves on the back knowing fully well that they deserve to congratulate themselves for making a good choice. They made the smart decision to use an effective fitness tool that can trim the fat and pump up muscles in just one go.
Why Kettlebells Rule
Okay, let’s admit it this early. Kettlebells, those homely looking things, will never win a contest for best-looking exercise and fitness equipment. They’re relatively small, squat, and dumpy, compared to those buff-looking barbells and sexy dumbbells.
They’re not as slick as the slim and proud-standing treadmills, not as imposing as the mufti-functional home gym machines, and definitely not as cool looking as the ellipticals, bikes, and rowers.
They’re not even as imaginative as the good ole’ trampolines that call to mind those carefree childhood days when it was great fun to jump up and down on the trampolines, going higher and higher, scaring the heck out of ourselves, and nearly giving granny or mom a coronary.
So, all that being said…
What’s So Great About Kettlebell Exercises?
As far as looks are concerned, Kettlebells may not be impressive – imagine handles on a cannonball or maybe a medium sized round handbag made of cast iron – but when it comes to performance, a Kettlebell can, and will, blow your socks off.
Kettlebells Combine Cardio and Weight Training
Sure, sure, treadmills give you an awesome cardiovascular workout, but have you ever tried lifting a treadmill to develop muscular strength?
As for weightlifting equipment, of course they build up your muscles, but in all probability, you’d have to go pump while running around (see the MyFitnessNut.com logo) like a frenzied Tasmanian Devil on steroids, if you even want to simply approximate the cardio benefits that come from doing a Kettlebell workout.
It’s a no-brainer. Why have separate cardiovascular and weight training workouts, when doing Kettlebell exercises can give you the benefits of both in the same exact workout routine?
A Kettlebell is like a maestro skillfully leading an orchestra that is made up of your core, your back, your legs, and your arms.
Like the fitness virtuosos that they are, Kettlebells coordinate your body’s major muscles during your workout, increasing your metabolic process, burning fat even as you build muscle strength.
Awesome is too tame a word for getting such advantages through the use of only one in-expensive fitness tool.
Dumbbell vs. Kettlebell Exercises
Dumbbells are great for spot toning, but if you want a total fat-blasting and muscle building workout for your body, it’s got to be a Kettlebell workout for you.
Visualize these words: Total… Body… Workout
That’s what this “Burn Body Fat Kettlebell Training Guide” gives you. Not just a promise, not just a hope, not just a possibility. This fitness guide shows you the reality that’s to come, that’s to happen in your life when you start doing, and going on with our Kettlebell exercises.
Remember, this guide comes complete with 22 instructional videos that will take away the mystery about how best to use Kettlebells in order to get:
- A healthy cardiovascular system

- A healthy core that protects your vital organs reliably and efficiently; six pack abs.
Take a Cue From Arnie
Arnold Schwarzenegger, former action star, politician, businessman, and body builder, was a progressive thinker, an inspired visionary who saw the directions that life would go, way ahead of his time.
No, wait, this is serious. Really.
Okay, he might not have foreseen the way that controversies would dog his private and public life, but setting those matters aside, you’ll have to add that his dedication to keeping fit, and his determination to make bodybuilding – which used to be considered as a weird way for conceited men to show off their excessively developed muscles – a major part of mainstream physical fitness. Health and wellness was something that stood out in the 1960s to the 1970s.
Arnie started out with barbells and weight training, and the rest is history, as we all know it. He took care of his body, and his body took care of him, acting as his ticket to Hollywood, and opening doors that led to the worlds of politics and business.
Arnie had the right idea. Take it from him. Use the opportunities available to you and sculpt and tone your body and make yourself stronger. If Arnie had his barbells, you have your Kettlebells.
Degrees of Engagement – Bodybuilding with a Kettlebell
As is the case with other bodybuilding exercises, a Kettlebell workout has degrees of engagement that you can gradually get into. No one’s expecting you to suddenly lift up a Kettlebell and start swinging it around like the way Thor mightily does it with Mjölnir, his devastating hammer. And no, you don’t have to buy a Thor costume or any kind of superhero outfit to use while working out… but, on second thought, if it gets you motivated, why not, eh?
Yep, no one’s expecting you to be the Kickass Kettlebell Kid of the Century…
But, you are expected to eventually understand the differences between technique and form, as well as appreciate why knowing such differences can lead you to your success.
You are expected to eventually learn how to enjoy the challenges that come your way, in the form of the 22 Kettlebell exercises that are clearly presented in the demonstration videos that accompany this guide.
And, you are expected to keep in mind the importance of knowing how to align your spine and keep your hips properly positioned as you do a Kettlebell workout.
Don’t forget: safety first!
