Kettlebell training has got more and more popular in recent years. I remember my housemates being confused by the strange, bomb like device in my room at uni – but now they’re in nearly every gym!
Shaped like a cannonball, with a thick handle, the kettlebell is an awesome piece of kit to have at home, if you’re after a quick workout.
You perform explosive exercises, and lots of repetitions – creating a fast paced strength routine that works your heart and lungs just as hard.
A short, 20-30 minute session will complement your cycling by helping you to develop a super strong core, which will make you more injury proof and provide extra power on the bike.
The negative is that proper technique is pretty important – so check into a class first.
Will you be trying out some of these routines to add a little spice to your cycling? You might also like…
