12 Days of Christmas

Not all exercises are created equal. The advantages of high intensity interval training (HIIT) are clear. From helping you build muscle to burn more fat to increasing heart health and cardiovascular strength, HIIT training can boost your overall health in a big way.

But, there is an incredibly simple way to increase these results and take your training to the next level. By adding the BodyRock Kettlebell to the mix, you’ll be amazed by what can happen.

Stop wasting your efforts and start reaping the rewards of an exercise tool that combines cardio and strength training to help you feel (and look) your best.

1. Increased Calorie Burn

Adding resistance to your HIIT routine can help you burn more calories than if you were using body weight alone. Whether you’re using the 20- or 30-pound BodyRock kettlebell, it will help your body build muscle and elevate your metabolism which increases your calorie burn. Your body uses more energy, or calories, to build and maintain muscle than it does to maintain fat. The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn.

2. Stronger Joints and Ligaments

Kettlebell exercises often involve fluid, multi-joint movements and this means they can help increase flexibility and strength in a way that is more closely related to how your body moves while performing daily activities. Building strength in your joints and ligaments will not only help you prevent injury during your workouts, it can help keep you injury free over time -- both inside and outside of the gym.

3. Better Balance

The BodyRock Kettlebell is different than dumbbells or other handheld weights. Because the center of gravity is located away from the hand, they provide your body with a unique set of challenges. Using the BodyRock Kettlebell engages your entire body. As you move the kettlebell, the center of gravity shifts which forces your body to engage smaller, stabilizing muscles in order to maintain the movement and your body position. Like having stronger joints and ligaments, better balance will improve performance, prevent injury, and keep you strong and healthy as you age.

4. Added Core Strength, Stability and Tone

Using the BodyRock Kettlebell can increase your core strength and stability. While kettlebell exercises don’t generally isolate specific muscle groups, they do have a profound impact on your core. That shifting center of gravity mentioned above actively engages the muscles in your trunk for the duration of your sweat session. A stronger back and stronger abs will improve posture, balance and stability allowing you to perform daily tasks with ease. This can also prevent injury and back pain without putting stress on your joints. What’s more, working these muscles will grow these muscles. We’ve said it before, you can’t spot reduce fat from trouble zones like the belly but you can build lean muscle which, in turn, increases fat burn and leads you to a tighter, trimmer, more toned appearance.
