Both the benefits of physical therapy and personal training can be limitless. If needed, physical therapy can help to alleviate pain, create more flexibility, and establish a more normal lifestyle for a subject dealing with either a sudden or chronic issue. Individuals in need of help often benefit from the strict regimen of required movements executed in order to benefit the user.
A coinciding role with physical therapy, often used as an extension of the process, is personal training. Individuals required or necessitated to undergo physical therapy for a certain injury or recuperation method benefit often from furthering their experience with personal training. Taking place either simultaneously or following the initial moves, training provides opportunity.
Kettlebells are one of the fastest growing methods by which those involved in personal training are targeting their subjects. Not only do kettlebells take up less space than a typical bench and barbell, but they also provide a range of motion through movement not attainable with movements often associated with weight lifting.
Following are three key benefits of kettlebell training
, highlighting the personal training aspects associated with each exercise.
Kettlebell workouts are more than static movements targeting a specific muscle group. The kettlebell exercises target a complete range of muscles and stabilizers allowing an individual to reap multiple rewards from just one exercise session.
Also, instead of movements focused solely on muscle gain, kettlebells improve both muscle tone and cardio simultaneously. Often, increasing the heart rate tremendously allowing cardiovascular benefits to occur while working out.
Another aspect of kettlebells is fun. Typical “lifting weights” become monotonous and boring after a period of time. Once each of the muscle groups have been exercised, broadening the horizons and finding new ways to target specific muscle groups becomes a priority.
By using kettlebells, this approach to boring workouts can be avoided. The different movements which can be utilized by kettlebells allows each individual workout to be unique while accomplishing the desired goals.
Finally, kettlebell workouts are extremely functional. Unlike prototypical weight lifting exercises, using kettlebells can provide a full body workout. The weighted ball and handle allow for multiple grips to be utilized in addition to executing a wide variety of movements for both strength gains, muscle tone, and even physical therapy use.
Specifically for those limited by space, kettlebells take up little room while providing a variety of benefits above and beyond that of a typical weight bench and barbell. The small tool is an up and coming instrument for those wishing to achieve the broadest amount of gains during their exercise program.
