Kettlebells provide an effective, functional and adaptable training device for fitness professionals. The recommended starting kettlebell weight for men should be around a 16 kg Kettlebell, progressing to 20-24 kg kettlebell or more depending on the exercise. The recommended starting weight for women should be around a 8 kg kettlebell, progressing to a 10- 12 kg kettlebell or more depending on the exercise. The size of the kettlebell will also be dictated by whether the training goal is the acquisition of cardiovascular fitness, muscle endurance, strength or power. Kettlebell exercises promote nervous system adaptations that increase strength and mobility while developing motor skills such as coordination and balance. The thick handle of competition kettlebells means you need a strong grip and using them is a very effective way of developing grip and forearm strength. 

Muscle endurance benefits of Kettlebell Training: Kettlebell lifts can be performed for a higher number of repetitions to promote muscular endurance and a more cardiovascular effect. Kettlebell programmes can be designed to emphasise muscle endurance by using workout structures such as circuits.

Kettlebells also help with Functional Abilities: Functional exercises improve a person’s ability to cope with the demands of their work or sport environment.
