Turn to a kettlebell or medicine ball for simple, effective training. This equipment is suitable for athletes of any age or skill level. From your living room to your gym, these tools promote improved range of motion, core strength, flexibility, joint health and much more.
Use your medicine ball across a full spectrum of plyometric workouts—training that focuses on coordination, rather than strength or endurance.
You can also use your medicine ball to isolate muscle groups, toning, training and trimming your body. Work out your upper body by lifting, throwing, catching and twisting your medicine ball in repetitions. Improve lower-body strength by squatting with your medicine ball.
A kettlebell’s weight is positioned away from its handle, resulting in a workout that’s sometimes more challenging than one where a dumbbell is used. The kettlebell swing is a popular method of toning the upper body. Use your kettlebell to deadlift, squat and much more.
Break up your workout routine by using kettlebells at a variety of different weights. Competition-level kettlebells are designed in a single size, no matter the weight, but non-competitive kettlebells are available in a full range of shapes and sizes.
Consider the covering of your equipment. Many medicine balls are covered with a durable rubber shell, with a texturized coating that enables you to grip and hold your medicine ball. Some medicine balls are designed to bounce—which enables you to perform specific kinds of exercises.
Kettlebells are typically covered in a high-quality rubber or vinyl shell. Kettlebells designed with a concave shape and ergonomic handle are designed for ease of use. More traditional kettlebells are made from a cast iron.
