While kettlebells are most commonly known for building explosive hip power with a ballistic swing, in my opinion the type of training kettlebells are most optimal for is strength-endurance. That is, lifting kettlebells for minutes at a time, without setting them down (aka Kettlebell Sport training). Kettlebells have been used for this type of training throughout history, and for good reason! This type of training builds incredible conditioning, endurance, and mental tenacity. While Kettlebell Sport competitions are incredibly tough and not for everyone, I believe the training can be used effectively for anyone who enjoys lifting kettlebells.
