SAVED BY THE BELL

Men's Health (Singapore) - - BULLETINS -

Is this the best tool to get you back to be­ing fit? Ket­tle­bell train­ing can help you gain strength

ev­ery­where, say re­searchers at the Univer­sity of Wis­con­sin at La Crosse in the US. Af­ter eight weeks of twice-weekly ket­tle­ball work­outs that in­cluded snatches, swings, get-ups and presses, study par­tic­i­pants out­did non- ex­er­cis­ers in sev­eral mea­sures of fit­ness: aer­o­bic ca­pac­ity (by 14 per cent), core strength (70 per cent), leg-press strength (15 per cent) and grip strength (9 per cent). “All those moves hit nearly ev­ery mus­cle,” says mas­ter ket­tle­bell in­struc­tor Doug Ne­po­dal. “Ket­tle­bells can in­crease car­dio and strength gains in a rel­a­tively short time.”
