What is a kettlebell?

But what is a kettlebell? It is a training tool in the form of a weight in cast iron or steel, with a rough handle, which you can include in everything from yoga sessions to crossfit workouts.

It's a really good piece of equipment to have for workouts at home and will help you strengthen all muscles while you can also strengthen your core and improve your balance. How great is that?!

What weight of kettlebell should I choose?

When it comes to choosing the weight of your kettlebell, consider yourself and your strength level. Taking too heavy a weight can lead to injury, so instead start lower and gradually increase the weight of your kettlebell.

For these exercises, Karin recommends a weight of between 12-24 kg, but as mentioned above, start from the weight that feels good and challenging for you. The focus here is to maintain a good flow and form. If you are new to training with kettlebells, it can also be good to take a lighter weight when you learn to master the technique for the various exercises.
