What if there was a way you could undergo a 90 day body transformation naturally without starving yourself? Or resorting to drinking gross shakes that taste like cardboard to see results? People spend way too much money on nasty tasting shakes and fitness equipment that will collect dust or even break. That's why I've made it my mission to help men get into better shape using kettlebells and proper nutrition. Making healthy food choices and getting the most out of exercising is the best way to lose weight quickly!
If you're like me and want to lose weight quickly by working out with kettlebells, you need to check out the video in this post. The kettlebell exercises featured aren't overly complex but they will challenge you! It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or an experienced kettlebell user, this workout by Chandler Marchman is great for all fitness levels.
I had a lot going on personally during this challenge. There's never really an opportunity where there's a lull in my life for 30 days. Holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions are a common occurrence and I knew that they would factor in during this time. It doesn't make sense to wait for the best opportunity and say, "Hey, this month looks pretty clear on the schedule." Even if that's true, something stressful is bound to happen. When it does, it's easy to give yourself an excuse to be bad and order or dine out.
Before I came up with Game of Bells: Swinging to 300, I created another method to do 300 kettlebell swings in a workout session. It doesn't involve downsizing or switching weights. It should be done with whatever current kettlebell weight you're comfortable with. For myself, that weight is 35 lbs.
It was actually my wife who suggested I attempt another challenge to help me get out of this funk. Honestly, my eating habits have been terrible lately. So giving me something to focus on physically is probably just want I need. It took me a few days to brainstorm an appropriate challenge. One that isn't too difficult, nor dependent on a diet but more so on mental toughness. Thus I came up with the idea of doing 100 kettlebell swings a day for the duration of lockdown.
When I first did my research over a year ago for my own weight loss plan, it was this question that I desperately wanted to answer the most. If you want to lose weight with kettlebells, you have to have realistic expectations. This probably means that a lifestyle change is in order. No more eating junk food or gorging yourself on a whim. That doesn't mean you can't ever indulge in fatty foods, but it should be a rare and infrequent occurrence.
When comes to the benefits of kettlebell exercises the one study that is widely touted is from the American Council on Exercise. ACE concluded that the typical 20-minute kettlebell workout burns on average 400 calories. Although this study goes all the way back to 2010, the facts remain. Kettlebell exercises are great for weight loss. Beyond this experiment, no others have really garnered widespread acclaim or recognition.
Many fitness experts agree that performing 300 kettlebell swings a day is an excellent way to lose weight fast. There are suggestions on how you should break the reps up as well as 300 swing challenges. Almost no one suggests doing them all in one go. Sure, that's possible but not realistic for the average person to do day after day. I've found the best way is to do them in one workout session in intervals.
It's been just over 3 years since I launched Kettlebell Krusher. Since that time, the site has evolved into more than just a personal blog about the benefits of kettlebells. I've come to realize just how passionate people are about getting fit with this awesome tool. Therefore, a redesign & rebranding was necessary to reflect this new direction and inspire others to use kettlebells.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible to turn fat into muscle because they are two different tissues. However, it is possible to lose fat while building muscle. Additionally, building muscle will help you lose body fat. If you want to lose weight you must do at least one of the following things.
Keeping fit and healthy is something that many of us aspire for. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of regular exercise and looking after our internal health hit the headlines in recent months. There was undoubtedly an emphasis placed on what we could do to keep ourselves in shape.
I love the format of EMOM workouts because there are usually several ways to approach them. Short for Every Minute On The Minute, this type of workout requires the completion of a task within 1 minute. The quicker that task is finished the more rest time before the next round. When it comes to kettlebells, EMOMs typically feature several different exercises counting as reps in a set. Since many kettlebell exercises have variations one may opt for a particular style.
