A kettlebell looks like a cannonball with a handle, or a teapot without the spout, hence the name “kettlebell” in English and in Russian it is called a “girya”. Kettlebells are made of either cast iron or steel.
Unlike a dumbbell, a kettlebell’s centre of mass extends beyond the hand. Kettlebells can be swung, thrown, juggled, pressed, held, moved and manipulated in hundreds of ways. They are small and portable and can be incorporated into all aspects of athletic and fitness training. Kettlebells are a highly efficient way to lose weight, tone your body, increase your cardiovascular fitness and strength and maintain joint health, mobility and flexibility.
The kettlebell as we know it today originated in Russia approximately 350 years ago. The first appearance of the word in a Russian dictionary appeared in 1704. They were originally used as handled counterweights to weigh out dry goods on market scales. People started throwing them around for entertainment and they were later put to use for weight lifting.
The Soviet army used them as part of their physical training and conditioning programs and are still used today, so too does the Australian and U.S. army. They had been used for competition and sports throughout Russia and Europe since the 1940s. Unlike the exercises with dumbbells or barbells, kettlebell exercises often involve large numbers of repetitions. Kettlebell exercises are in their nature holistic; therefore they work several muscles simultaneously and may be repeated continuously for several minutes or with short breaks. This combination makes the exercise partially aerobic and more similar to high-intensity interval training rather than to traditional weight lifting
