When it comes to fitness goals, women generally look to tone up their body, scorch fat, lose weight and increase muscle strength (spending less amount of time daily).

Ok, ladies, we’ve heard your demands, and here is suggesting you a unique piece of equipment, kettlebells that helps break up the workout monotony, offer an exciting dimension to your fitness routine.
ADVANTAGE OF KETTLEBELLS
The kettlebell looks like a solid cannonball with all the weight massed into a dense ball. The advantage of kettlebells lies in their unique shape, they come with a handle that serves as an easy grip, the kettlebell handle allows for the bell to be easily passed back and forth between hands, which increases the range of motion. Kettlebells outshine the conventional dumbbells and reign supremacy over fancy machines found inside gyms. The dynamic piece of equipment can give an all-in-one workout, add muscle tone without the bulk.
As a pre-requisite for any workout, do some warm up and choose a kettlebell that’s more convenient for you to lift. (don’t choose the one that’s too heavy or too light)
