By Chris Rivers

Kettlebell workouts are a great way to get fit, tone up, and lose that unwanted fat belly, but one thing that really stands out and makes kettlebells the fastest growing workout routine around today is that this one piece of equipment is so versatile.

consider this for a moment; what other single fitness apparatus can give you a full body workout, engaging all major and minor muscle groups in as little as 20 minutes? Add into that the fact that you burn more calories per a minute doing a kettle bell workout than any other training regime available today. And what's more you get one bad ass cardiovascular session to really put the cherry on the cake.

Exercises are different from dumbbell exercises. When lifting a bell, you need to follow the right technique using your strength. Performing regular exercises with the kettlebell - light to medium in weight - this can help you build the power in various parts of the body, as well as increase your body's overall stamina. Kettle bells come with offset center of gravity and because of this, your body is subjected to maintaining the balance, which is not only helpful in improving balance but is also helpful in strengthening the muscles all over the body, including the heart.

Aside from the benefits mentioned above, exercises are also helpful in improving the body's flexibility. Regular kettlebell workouts can help improve flexibility without doing poses for a long period. Working out with KB's can be done at any given time. This is because you do not have to spend hours working out. Performing the exercises at least 20 minutes daily can already help you improve your stamina, strength and flexibility. This is the reason why it is the most recommended exercise for those with very busy schedule and have shorter workout times.

Surprisingly and unlike other fitness programmes kettle bell training is very moreish, this is mainly due to the fact that the workouts don't take forever to complete, are a personal challenge to you and can be done every ware and anywhere imaginable. Because of their unique size and exercises you are not limited to just training at home or in the gym; if the sun is shining get out there into the fresh air and swing your kettle bell, you'll be amazed at how refreshing and therapeutic it really can be.

Also it's inexpensive. You can buy the equipment for as low as $30 and train every with it and thats a big saving on hefty gym memberships.
