The Most Versatile Tool In The Gym

One of the most used pieces of equipment at First Capital Gym is the kettlebell. When used CORRECTLY, it’s probably the best “bang for your buck” tools you have.  When a new member comes to us, we’ll use it more as a teaching tool.  As someone trains here more often and is more experienced, we’ll advance them to different exercises.  These are just some examples below:

The Most Versatile Tool In The Gym

Kettlebell Deadlift>>Kettlebell Swing>>Single Arm Swing>>Snatch

Kettlebell Deadlift>>Double Kettlebell Deadlift>>Trap Bar Deadlift

Kettlebell Goblet Squat>>Rack Kettlebell Squat>>Double Kettlebell Squat

Here are some reasons why we prefer the kettlebell over other pieces of equipment:
     • Like we mentioned above, it’s a great teaching tool
     • Versatile: you can use them for power and strength exercises as well as carries
     • They don’t take up a lot of space
     • You can get total body workouts with one bell
     • Easily transportable: when you’re on vacation, you can pack a small kettlebell with you to get in your training (Also, when a virus shuts down your gym and need to give your members equipment, kettlebells came in handy)
