Kettlebells are a great tool for functional training, which utilizes movements performed in life’s daily activities, such as walking, bending, lifting, and climbing stairs. Training with kettlebells is a beneficial way to switch up your strength and conditioning routine and can be benficial in injury rehabilitation and prevention. To take kettlebell training to the next level, incorporate high-intensity intervals.
HIIT kettlebell workouts trigger excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), which is commonly referred to as "afterburn." The all-out efforts in these five workouts increase your body’s need for oxygen during the workout and create an oxygen shortage, causing your body to ask for more oxygen during recovery.The more oxygen that gets inside your body, the more fat your body burns, so activating EPOC translates to a metabolism boost for up to 48 hours after a high-intensity routine.
