Men's Health: Kettlebell Swing

Swing Away Fat.

Here is a cardio option that can help you drop excess weight-and avoid the treadmill. Kettlebell Swings are great for your heart, according to researchers at Truman State University. In their study, Kettlebell exercises improved maximum oxygen uptake ( a measure of cardio-respiratory fitness). "Preforming Kettlebell Swings can provide a greater aerobic challenge than traditional circuit weight training," says study author Alex Koch Ph.D. Best of all. The program is fast. Use a 16-kilogram Kettlebell (or 35-pound dumbbell) and complete as many Swings as you can in 12 minutes, resting as needed.
