Are Kettlebells and Dumbbells Created Equal?



When it comes to lifting, are kettlebells and dumbbells created equal? To answer this, we need to look into the benefits of each.


Kettlebell benefits can offer full-body strength conditioning, power conditioning, endurance training, balance, body awareness, helps to burn calories, and helps with flexibility training.


Dumbbells benefits include the following: boost resting metabolic rate, burns calories, protects against injury, strengthens the bones, muscles, and connective tissue. Using dumbbells also has other benefits, they activate a number of different muscles and stimulate muscle growth, they can help improve both muscle force and flexibility, and they can promote coordination and stability for muscles and joints.


In looking into these benefits there are very similar benefits across the board for both. Almost all movements can be done with either a kettlebell or dumbbell, the only difference is which feels the best when doing the movement. Everyone is different on their preferences, so at the end of the day, pick one up and get to work!
