Kettlebell Snatch for Aerobic Capacity

 The kettlebell snatch is the main exercise in kettlebell training routines. The exercise may look simple, but demands coordinated, linked contractions of the thigh, bottom, core and upper body muscles to perform it properly.

A kettlebell is a large iron ball with a handle. There’s nothing new about kettlebells. Since the 19th century, people have used used them to build powerful, lean, lightning-fast bodies.

A study from San Jose State University discovered that a high-rep kettlebell workout (15 seconds of snatches followed by 15 seconds of rest for 20 minutes) boosted aerobic capacity by 6%.

In comparison, a control group practised circuit training and made no improvement in aerobic capacity. Kettlebell workouts can help develop strength and aerobic fitness that will improve overall sports performance.
