Not only does the offset weight of the bell get your stabilizer muscles in gear, the dynamic nature of the kettlebell revs your heart rate too.

The Kettlebell Moves
Kettlebell Goblet Squat
Sculpts your legs and booty. Stand with feet wider than hip-width apart, holding a kettlebell in both hands at chest height. Lower your booty straight down until your thighs are as close to parallel to the ground as possible. Drive through your heels to rise up to standing. Do 15 reps.
Sculpts your core and booty, and doubles as cardio! Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-distance apart, holding the kettlebell with both hands. Hinging at the hips, swing the kettlebell straight back in between your legs. Driving the hips forward, swing the kettlebell up to chest level, keeping the arms straight. Ready to progress? Try the single-arm swing, switching hands at the top of the swing. And remember: the power from this move comes from that booty, not the arms or shoulders. Do 15 reps.
Kettlebell Rock the Boat
Tones your entire core! Start seated with your knees bent and feet lifted off the ground, holding a kettlebell by the horns at chest height. With a flat back and chest lifted, lean back at a 45 degree angle, and bring your hands together with your elbows out. Twist your torso to the right, then back to center. Repeat on the left side. Do 15 reps on each side.
