Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Ruckus101
A kettlebell is a traditional Russian training tool that has been used since the turn of the century to develop full body conditioning and fitness. Resembling a cannon ball with a handle, the unique shape of the kettlebell allows for optimal positioning of its weight directly above one’s center of mass. This allows users to keep their hands and wrists in neutral alignment, thereby enabling greater endurance and longevity in core lifts. Thuis results in a much higher volume of exercise, thereby enabling its users to achieve greater heights in their fitness goals.
