Why is burning calories such an annoying, difficult process? It’s such a pain to burn lots (and I mean lots) of calories. It takes too long!
Does it have to? There’s a reason kettlebells are getting crazy popular… that has something to do with the amount of calories it burns. That’s only the beginning, though.
More and more people are using them. The question is, why would people do a ridiculous thing like that?
Well, because they’re great, that’s why. That’s a pretty good reason.
Kettlebells provide a total-body resistance workout…
…that ALSO incorporates cardio.
In fact, the average person can burn 400 calories in only 20 minutes with a kettlebell.
Uhh, in case you were counting, that is literally infinity calories. That’s like running a 6 minute mile. I don’t know many people that can run a 6 minute mile.

Why Kettlebells Burn So Many Calories
After all, they’re just weights, right? Wrong. Kettlebells are so effective because you’re working out on different planes of movement. You’re not just going up and down, like with dumbbells or barbells, you’re going in and out and side to side (I swear I’m not trying to make an innuendo here), so it works out your body a lot more effectively. Plus, it mimics the way your body moves in real life, and works with your body rather than against it.
So what does that add up to?
Well, because your body is using more “stabilizer muscles” than it would in normal strength training, it burns a lot more calories and puts an intense workout on your core a.k.a. your abs.
That means that not only will you see weight loss, you’ll also see your fitness levels spike.
And in way less time than traditional exercises.
Kettlebells are love. Kettlebells are life. Kettlebells.
