What makes kettlebells uniquely effective?

Kettlebells offer a distinct advantage that barbells, dumbbells and other free-weight options don’t: Ballistic Movement. In exercise jargon, ballistic movement refers to muscle contractions that reach maximum velocities and accelerations very quickly. Elite athletes use it to enable their muscles to exert maximum force almost instantly. The round shape and concentrated mass of the kettlebell – like a cannonball with a handle on it – cuts easily through the air when you swing it. Used properly, this low-impact movement can help you develop the fast-twitch muscle fibers. These fibers facilitate explosive movement in sports and daily activities.
