If you don’t already know, kettlebell exercises are one of the most underrated forms of muscle building methods out there. The fact that they are known as one of the most versatile gym equipment should be a clue to there effectiveness in building muscle and getting stronger.

If you want to build more muscle and get a muscular physique faster, start using kettlebells. You’ll not only generate more power, build lean muscle, and boost your metabolism, but you’ll also improve your balance and stability.

According to a study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research the kettlebell swing significantly increased the strength of an individual by 12% when compared to it’s own power training control group which had an increase of 7.7%.

Because of the kettlebell’s shape, you can push, pull, and swing it like nothing else, and unlock a new branch of exercises that are pretty much impossible without it.

Follow these six kettlebell exercises to add more muscle, melt more fat, boost your endurance, and move better. You’ll improve your body quickly and build the foundation for every other kettlebell exercise. (Biceps curls, however, are forbidden—at least for this workout they are.)
