Kettlebell Workout Offered at Underground Gym Monmouth County NJ
Want to try something truly special? Give the kettlebell workout a go at Underground Gym Monmouth County NJ! The kettlebell was used in Russia in the 1700s for weighing crops, and farmers who used these implements discovered that they became stronger than their peers. The kettlebell is similar to a dumbbell in the sense that it is a weight to be lifted, but the similarity ends there — its center of mass extends beyond the hand, which provides an “unstable” force for a very unique weight lifting exercise.
At our Tinton Falls, Fair Haven, Eatontown and other locations, we offer the kettlebell workout for strength and grip training. Call 732-345-8087 to speak with our experts and set up a time to give the kettlebell a try!
Not Just Another Dumbbell – Underground Gym Monmouth County NJ
As stated before, the kettlebell workout uses the kettlebell’s extended center of mass to achieve its unique effects. These include increasing lower back strength, legs and shoulders and grip strength. The movements associated with the kettlebell — the snatch, the jerk, and the long cycle, swings, cleans etc. — amplify these effects further.

What Is a Kettlebell Workout? – Underground Gym Monmouth County NJ
Contemporary competitive kettlebell lifting consists mainly of three movements — the snatch, the jerk, and the long cycle (clean and jerk). Our kettlebell workout, available at all our locations including Holmdel, Leonardo and Shrewsbury, will train you in these movements and much more to allow you to enjoy the particular benefits of the kettlebell workout safely and without risk of injury. In the snatch, a kettlebell is swung in a single motion from between the knees to above the head using a single hand.
The jerk uses two kettlebells (one in each hand), first lifted to chest level, then “jerked” quickly above the head. The long cycle also uses two kettle bells, “cleaned” from knee to chest level, then again jerked above the head quickly, similar to the “clean & jerk” in standard competitive weightlifting. These traditional exercises are available at our facility and can help you achieve results, whether you’re in Lincroft, Rumson, West Long Branch and Middletown, just to name a few.

Exercise with History – Underground Gym Monmouth County NJ
The kettlebell workout is traditional in Russia and dates back to the 18th century, where farmers who used kettlebells to weigh their crops discovered that they grew stronger, and would use these implements to perform feats of strength — even juggling heavy kettlebells at circuses. In the 20th century, they were used for strength training in the Soviet army. The kettlebell’s shape makes it an excellent choice for increasing the strength of one’s grip, and the location of its center of mass causes it to work muscle groups not addressed by standard dumbbells.
