Kettlebell- tool for powerful exercise

A kettlebell is an essential tool for working out. In fact, be it a regular for strength training, or extensive yoga; kettlebell can be a popular tool used in most workouts. Even though kettlebells tend to look a little intimidating, it is a powerhouse of incredible potential and can give your exercise that extra pump. A ‘flow’ is a term extensively used nowadays, while it is nothing but a series or a sequence of a particular kind. However, having a proper kettlebell flow means you follow up one exercise after the other, creating a sequence of a sort. In fact, having a set flow of a particular time limit increases the chances of the workout getting executed. Thus, let us go through this 10 minutes kettlebell flow which might make you make the most of this powerful tool.

Bend your knees very slightly and connect at the waist. Now, and with a low, neutral spine, row the kettlebells starting from just over your ankles up to your armpits and then back down to your ankles, straightening up in preparation of the double kettlebell clean.
