Since the weight isn't evenly distributed, using a kettlebell forces your stabilizer muscles to work harder. A kettlebell workout is great for cardio, strength and flexibility training. According to the American Council on Exercise, exercising with kettlebells burns about 20 calories a minute.

The Redskins looked ready for business on their way to play the New York Giants.
They fought hard against the Giants, and now are fighting in our fashion faceoff.

Assessment of jump mechanics (having the athlete drop from a one-foot-high box and explode into a jump when landing from the box) can be used to identify the at-risk female athlete.
It is important to teach females to use ... Read More
