Kettlebell Exercises as Universal Workout for All Muscle Groups

Tips & tricks
Universal workout routines that help to advance all muscle groups and physical qualities simultaneously are the holy grail of fitness, and we are constantly in search of new ones. Well, here’s one for you – the kettlebell exercises. High-repetition (at least 15-20 reps per set) kettlebell exercises promote both strength and endurance.

Practicing with kettlebells will cause your body to:
  1. Improve bone density
  2. Increase muscle size and strength
  3. Improve both the efficiency and effectiveness of your cardiovascular system, meaning that you can absorb and circulate more oxygen to working muscles.

Here are the three kettlebell exercises that you should add to your workout routine if concurrent training is your thing:

Kettlebell Jerk 
This exercise is performed in two steps: first, the kettlebells are brought to the clean rack position on the chest, and second, the kettlebells are bumped up onto straight arms.
