Ooooh, kettlebell!

Friday, June 14, 2013

Woah! It's heavy (duh).

There's so much hype about it burning 20kcals per minute but I think that doesn't apply to the general public. The study done by the American Council of whatever did do it on very fit experienced people with good stats and it was done on a certain type of movement called a snatch - whatever that is. I can't seem to find any reliable calorie burn info on the kettlebell that would apply to me, but I stumbled on this:

From the Boots Website (UK)

Duration of Activity Calories Required
10 mins 86
30 mins 257
60 mins 514

* Figures based on a person weighing 65kg (10st 3lbs). It is important to remember that everyone's body responds differently to exercise, and that the number of calories you burn will depend on your body composition, weight and intensity you work at

Luckily, I'm terribly close to that - being 64.5kg so I would estimate the same for myself.

I actually bought it for toning my arms and other body groups, but if it burns calories at the same time, who am I to complain!?

*woooh!* *Excited*

    Yes, a snatch is a very advanced and technical full body movement. I do not think most people are doing those types of workouts with them. I do not worry about calorie burn but rather a progressive strength program with kettlebells and knowing proper technique.
