Kettlebell Workouts For Martial Arts Strength & Conditioning
Kettlebells are heavy ball-shaped metal weights with a grip. They are often used in a swinging motion in order to build strength. Kettlebells are seen as building functional strength (i.e. mimicking a natural movement) versus just focusing on a single muscle group (i.e. dumbbells for bicep curls).
Medicine balls and Indian exercise clubs are similar to kettlebells in that they also help functional strength. In Hojo Undo exercises (which are used by more traditional Karate schools), there is a some-what similar martial arts training tool called the Nigiri Game (or Gripping Jar). For more conditioning and strength exercises, please visit the main Physical Fitness section.
