Kettlebells. You know them as those things that those cross-training people and Russians seem to love. They start training arguments, piss bodybuilders off, and make people who have never used them before look like circus clowns.
They’re said to be the ‘end-all, be-all’ of that functional training equipment. (By the way, I hate the term functional training…aren’t you ‘functioning’ no matter what exercise you are doing?)
BUT you never hear anyone talk about how they can help you build thick, dense muscle. I’m going to change that for you.
Throw your mass building exercises a curve ball by throwing in some kettlebell exercises – I’m not talking swings or cleans, or snatches, but more like flies, pullovers, and presses.
You can even still use advanced techniques like supersets and drop sets with your kettlebell mass training to take your results to the next level.
Here is the KEY:
Dumbbells = Kettlebells
Whatever you can do with dumbbells you can do with kettlebells.
Because of the shape, they actually puts more tension on the target muscles than dumbbells do.
Check out the videos below to see how its done.
Just don’t say I didn’t warn you when you’re a little sore the next day.
