Whenever you feel like getting in shape and toning your entire body, kettlebells are the most effective piece of equipment you’ll need. Kettlebell moves will make your muscles sore and your heart pumping fast, so let’s swing the iron ball in every possible direction.
The distribution of the weight in a kettlebell is what makes it better than a regular dumbbell.
