The great thing about doing circuits with kettlebells is that you work your whole body. Every muscle gets its fair share of exhaustiveness and this translates over to a solid, overall well conditioned machine.
Here’s a huge benefit to a wrestling workout and kettlebells. Strength is an awesome asset to have as a wrestler. Using kettlebells can drastically improve your strength. Many powerlifters have incorporated kettlebell training into their workout, and their numbers have drastically increased.
