They are kettle shaped weights and often comes in sizes of 1,2,3 pood (1 pood = 16.3 Kg). Their origination is from Scotland, not from Russia as most people believe. They can be very challenging for your tendons, muscles and arms joints because of their awkward shape for lifting.

It’s all because of their shape. When you are swinging kettlebell you have to put efforts in controlling the kettlebell (thus not shooting it like a mad cannonball). Doing 30 swings with each hand is great cardio.

With every swing, you have to sit back (as the kettle goes down) and stand up (while pulling kettle), you are working your quads, hamstrings, and lower back. Oh if you are using heavyweight( 2 poods or 32 kg for men, 24 kg for women), you’ll be exerting lot more pressure on your abdominal region, thus working out your abs too.
