Kettlebell World Champ Lorna Kleidman Praises Findings That Kettlebell Exercises Increase Aerobic Capacity

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) April 20, 2013

On April 20, 2013, three-time kettlebell world champion Lorna Kleidman commends a recent study conducted by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) that demonstrates kettlebell exercises increase cardiovascular fitness. While kettlebell exercises have long been associated with improving muscular strength, balance and flexibility, they are now proving to build endurance.

According to the ACE study, male and female subjects were put through a series of kettlebell exercises – including hand swings, snatches, cleans, lunges, presses and Turkish get-ups. After a two-month training period, the subjects showed substantial increases in aerobic capacity, strength, balance, and flexibility.

Dr. John Porcari, head of the University’s Department of Exercise and Sport Science, acknowledges that although most people don’t associate resistance training with aerobic capacity, researchers saw aerobic capacity increasing by almost 15 percent.

Dr. Porcari further explained the benefits of including kettlebell exercises as a part of a fitness routine, “Kettlebell training increases strength, which you’d expect, but you also get these other benefits.” He added, “You don’t really do resistance training expecting to get an aerobic capacity benefit, and you don’t do resistance training and expect to improve your core strength, unless of course you’re specifically doing core-strengthening exercises. But with kettlebells you’re able to get a wide variety of benefits with one pretty intense workout.”

The results also suggest that the benefits conferred by kettlebell exercises are of particular interest and importance to the elderly. According to the same study, the elderly can “increase their core strength by 70%.” Dr. Porcari stresses the magnitude of this finding, saying, “I think that’s huge because the stronger people are through the core, the less low-back pain they are going to have.”

“Older people who are doing some sort of kettlebell-like training are going to be more likely to avoid dangerous falls.” And “on the other end of the spectrum, for athletes, the better your dynamic balance, the better your ability to balance when you’re moving and cutting and doing other athletic movements.”

Lorna Kleidman lauds this new study as she states, “This research confirms why I strongly believe kettlebell exercises are one of the best strategies for increasing muscular strength and improving balance and flexibility – and now we find that it can improve aerobic capacity.”

“As more research is being conducted on kettlebell exercises, the fitness professional and the public alike will see the growing list of reasons why kettlebell exercises provide the best workout for those seeking to achieve optimal health and fitness.”

Lorna Kleidman is a three-time world champion and world record holder in kettlebell sport, and the most decorated kettlebell athlete in the country. She developed the innovative kettlebell exercises used in the KettleX program as a way to bring the benefits of the bells to everyone in an easy-to-use, comprehensive and fun format. Lorna has been teaching individuals and group classes for the past six years.
