Whether your focus is strength, endurance, flexibility, mobility, or all of these, the kettlebell will be beneficial and effective. The kettlebell alternates periods of intense contraction and controlled relaxation, to give you a superior workout that combines strength, as well as endurance. Kettlebell workouts will help you build muscle and allow for the endurance to build to further progress in both areas.
Many kettlebell exercises allow you to build joint strength and flexibility along with strength and conditioning. The kettlebell also stimulates tremendous abdominal contraction because of the explosive conditioning movements. Basically, this means youre working your abs even when youre not working your abs. The abdominal contraction and coordinated breathing provide a very high level of conditioning that has made it popular among fighters and other elite level athletes, but is still very accessible by anyone. A strong core can be considered the foundation for most sports and fitness as a whole. The fact you can work your core indirectly, just through the dynamic aspect of kettlebells, is truly amazing.
Circuit training is a form of training where participants rotate through a number of stations, performing different exercises to time or repetitions, back to back, with minimum rest until the circuit is completed. There are various ways of constructing a circuit, but they would normally contain several movements including body weight, weighted and dynamic exercises.
The great thing about circuits is the adaptability available. They can be developed for cardiovascular improvement, strength, mobility, sport specificvirtually anything. They also dont need a lot of space or time and dont need to be overly complicated (unless you want them to be).
A slow-paced, therapeutic style of yoga. Postures are more passive, mainly done on the floor either seated or lying down. There are no sun salutations, no planks, no warriors, no jump throughs! There is in fact no dynamic movement and usually no standing poses at all.
It is unique in that you are asked to relax into the posture, allowing the body to soften and release naturally without pushing or straining. It is not uncommon for postures to be held for three to five minutes, even 10 minutes at a time. The time spent in these postures is much like time spent in meditation, as the mind shifts from yang to yin, or from active to passive.
