  • Strength

The kettlebell is an extremely versatile tool that, luckily, is not just suited for cardio but is equally as suited for strength, flexibility, stability, and other work that helps create a more injury-proof version of you.

If you’re looking to get serious with kettlebell training and want to increase your stamina, then I can highly recommend starting with the one and only routine you need, THE PACE MAKER PROTOCOL. If you want to focus on strength and hypertrophy, get yourself a copy of PROMETHEUS PHASE II. Either of these programs has everything a beginner would need to get to an awesome level of kettlebell training and see serious results.
