Kettlebells are an ancient and versatile workout tool. They have several advantages over traditional dumbbells and barbells, and pack a lot of value for the price.
Use lightweight kettlebells to increase cardiovascular endurance. Moderate weight kettle bells to improve short term or anaerobic endurance, and a heavier kettlebell for strength and muscle building, or all three. You can buy one of several weights (a 16, 26 and 53, for example,) or buy pairs for double-handed work.
