On January 24, following the publication of a physiological correlation of weight loss between aerobic training and resistance training, Lorna Kleidman, kettlebells fitness expert and three time kettlebell champion, recommends applying kettlebells to maximize aerobic training.
A recent study published by the Journal of Applied Physiology comparing aerobic training to resistance training found that “when it comes to weight loss and weight maintenance, aerobic training comes out on top. If the goal is to increase lean body mass, however, resistance training is the way to go.”
According to the Journal of Applied Physiology, “researchers found that the groups assigned to aerobic training and aerobic plus resistance training lost more weight than those doing resistance training only.” In addition, the resistance-only group had gained weight because of an increase in lean body mass and “waist circumference decreased significantly in both the aerobic training and aerobic plus resistance training groups, but it remained steady in the resistance training-only group,” reports the Journal of Applied Physiology.
“While requiring double the time commitment, a program of combined aerobic training and resistance training did not result in a greater loss of fat mass or body mass over aerobic training,” the researchers wrote in the conclusion. “If increasing muscle mass and strength is the goal, a program including resistance training is required. However, balancing time commitments against health benefits accrued, it appears that aerobic training alone is the optimal mode of exercise for reducing fat mass and total body mass.”
Lorna Kleidman, creator of the popular KettleX program, affirms the benefits of combining resistance and aerobic training. Kleidman states, “While aerobics focuses on losing weight and resistance on increasing lean muscle, kettlebells are designed to incorporate aerobic movements with a weight for body sculpting.”
Kleidman’s reputation as a [kettlebell exercises fitness instructor and three time kettlebells champion has been the backbone to the KettleX program’s success. “Those who are seriously considering losing weight and feeling good about themselves should incorporate kettlebells into a twenty minute aerobics session and they will see results almost instantly.”
Lorna Kleidman is a Three-Time World Champion and World Record holder in kettlebell sport and the most decorated kettlebell athlete in the country. She developed the innovative methods used in KettleX as a way to bring the benefits of the bells to everyone in an easy-to-use, comprehensive and fun format. Lorna has been teaching individuals and group classes for the past six years.
