Kettlebell Burn

Melissa snatches 44kg

49, 50, 51... I call out the count for an AKC Fitness LI member performing a Snatch set. This is typical set for Melissa, and not unusually intense for a proficient lifter, although a worthwhile kettlebell snatch set is rarely easy. Continuously moving 35 pounds for 10 minutes is akin to running with weights, only your feet never leave the floor, and the body sustains zero impact. Melissa is one of thousands of Americans getting fitness, performance, and weight loss results with kettlebells.

Kettlebells and Weight Loss
A study sponsored by the American Council on Exercise (ACE), and conducted at the University of Wisconsin, revealed that kettlebell lifting can burn as many as 20 calories in one minute. This is a huge breakthrough for fitness enthusiasts around the world, the potential to burn more calories than running!

Kettlebell enthusiasts "make these all-encompassing claims about increasing your muscular strength, endurance and aerobic capacity with kettlebells, like if you do this that's all you need to do," says researcher John Porcari, PhD of the University of Wisconsin, La Crosse Exercise and Health Program, in the report, published in ACE FitnessMatters. "So we wanted to look and see how much of an aerobic workout you really do get and how many calories you burn."
At AKC Fitness LI we incorporate traditional, old-school kettlebell lifting with short bursts of cardio and selective resistance training to provide even more customized, highly caloric workouts. Our proven methodology allows the average man or woman to safely progress and train at their full potential, sustaining this 20-calorie per minute pace for longer periods of time, delivering greater results.
We'd like to help you reach your fitness and weight loss goals for 2012. For more information on Kettlebell Fitness and Performance Training, visit AKC Fitness LI:
