One of the latest fitness rages to invade America the last few years is the kettlebell workout. When I first heard the name I thought it sounded like "cow bell" but all joking aside kettlebells are fast establishing themselves as one of the best ways for getting into shape. Kettlebells are basically cast iron balls that resemble a bowling ball with a handle. They can be purchased is sizes from as low as ten pounds up through 100 pounds each and more. Here is some cool ketlebell trivia.

Although often referred to as "Russian kettlebells," it is believed that kettlebells where also used in ancient Greece and Scotland.

In 1704 a Russian dictionary refers to the kettlebell which in Russian is known as a handlebell or "girya." 

A thorough kettlebell workout can last just ten to fifteen minutes but during that time you burn fat and build strength and endurance at the same time. * Kettlebells are uniquely effective in that they require not only the primary muscle movement but utilize core and other stabilizing muscles to help offset the inertia created by the kettlebell when doing swings and jerks which are two common exercises. red_kettlebell

 It has been reported that several actors use kettlebells including Ed O'Neil, Matthew McConaughey , Bruce Lee, Jennifer Lopez, Sylvester Stallone, Penelope Cruz and others.

The story goes that Russian kettlebells where originally used as weights to weigh grains when the merchants began to play with them, swinging them around and using them for entertainment. 

The American Council on Exercise says that kettlebells are "a great way to get a whole body workout in a relatively short period of time." 

Kettlebells are amazingly simple to maintain since there are no moving parts to lubricate and virtually nothing that can break on them. 

Kettlebells are heavy but have a small footprint which means they are very easy to store and even travel with.

Kettlebell training was originally thought to be to hardcore and dangerous for the average user a myth of which has been dispelled.

The Russian name for a kettlebell is Girya.

Traditionally kettlebells where measured in "poods," a Russian Imperial unit of weight that was done way with in 1924. A one pood kettlebell is 16kg, a two pood is 32kg and so on. "You never know a man until you have eaten a pood of salt with him." - old Russian proverb. Rich with history, kettlebells have an established track record for being one of the best ways to get into shape.
