1. Kettlebell exercises strengthen the glutes – most people have “gluteal amnesia”…weak and flabby buns!
2.Kettlebell exercises stretch the hip flexors. – the muscles at the tops of your thighs
3.Kettlebells develop back extensor endurance. – your low back muscles must be able to “work” for long periods of time (hence, kettlebell swing-throughs)
4.”Bracing” is superior to hollowing for spinal stability. – bracing is like getting your abs ready to be punched by a bully.
5. Sensible ballistic loading appears to reduce the odds of arthritis. – ballistic meaning not staying still – and like I always say, “Motion is Lotion” keep moving to ward off arthritis!
