Ring In the New Year With Kettlebells

Old School Fitness Tool Perfect Item for Maintaining New Year's Fitness Resolutions

11/28/06 - Staring down the prospect of another failed New Year's fitness resolution this January? Russian ( suggests taking on a completely unique workout routine instead of the same old traditional workout to increase chances for success; the kettlebell workout.

"Many people decide to do the same things over and over again with each New Year's fitness resolution and get bored quickly," said a spokesperson for the website. "Doing more pushups, running a few more miles, etc. These types of resolutions become ordinary and routine, the person becomes bored quickly, and falls back into old habits. By taking on something new and challenging, such as kettlebell training, interest is maintained longer and chances for success in achieving New Year's fitness goals increase greatly."

Considered an old-school type workout, kettlebell training has long been used by the Russian military to burn fat and build lean muscle, as well as improve overall athletic explosiveness in its soldiers. Resembling a cannonball with a handle attached, kettlebells have caught on in the U.S. in recent years and have become quite popular in gyms nationwide.

"Their appearance alone command attention and interest," the spokesperson continued. "Coupled with the outstanding results one can achieve from a kettlebell workout, this type of training is definitely something worth considering as a New Year's fitness resolution."
