We’ve gotten pretty good at working out at home this past year, but if you’re still using your footstool for a box step, or wine bottles for weights, it might be time to upgrade your home workout kit.
If you’re going to invest in one item right now, make it a kettlebell says Phillippa Gillespie-Eyles, Kettlebell instructor at Everyone Active’s leisure centre in Dulwich, London; ‘This simple piece of equipment can develop muscular endurance, strength, power and cardiovascular capacity – all of which contribute to making you a better runner.’
As well as helping you run stronger, kettlebell training is a calorie-burner, too, with workouts torching about 20kcals per minute – roughly equivalent to running 6min/mile pace.
At the moment, Amazon basics have their own kettlebell on sale. Made from cast-iron, the kettlebell is available in 4kg-16kg.
