Kettlebell training has certainly become an indispensable fitness tool for some champion athletes and famous celebrities around the world. Kettlebell training is not only superior to most of form of training for athletic development, it is a great and simple tool for shedding the fat in the body which is obviously important for athletes and celebrities. It is no wonder that kettlebell has only increased in its popularity when most of the other fitness trend are fading off.

As a kettlebell instructor, I know certain kettlebell exercises are great for increasing the metabolism and losing the fat in the body. In fact, these three exercises have common elements and are the type of exercises that research has found to be effective in raising the metabolism. These kettlebell exercises are classified as ballistic and compound movements. The following are 3 fat-burning kettlebell exercises you want to include in your fat loss training.

The Swing
When performing this exercise, be sure to go for high repetition in order to achieve the fat-burning effects.

It is a fundamental movement in kettlebell exercises that must be mastered with high level of proficiency. Without mastering the proper techniques of the kettlebell swing, it can be very hard to do well in the next two exercises and achieve the maximum fat-burning effects.

The Clean
It is one of the compound exercises that has been found to be effective in raising the metabolism. Although deceptively dangerous, it is actually a lot gentler on the wrist compared to a clean performed with barbell.

The Snatch
It is a highly explosive move in kettlebell training and great exercise for increasing the heart rate for great cardiovascular fitness and fat loss.

The recommendation here is to go for high repetitions.

The common things about the 3 kettlebell exercises are that they worked on multiple muscles groups at the same time, fast movements and caused high elevation of heart rate. All these factors contribute to effective fat loss and raise in the resting metabolism.
