Kettlebell vs. Dumbbell: Which one wins the Battle?

Fitness enthusiasts can’t stop talking about Kettlebells: a new trend in weight lifting. Creating a corner in almost every gym, some even argue that Kettlebells are better for body sculpting than traditional free weights. Does that make Kettlebells better than dumbbells? Let’s find out: 

Dumbbells: Ideal for Isometric Exercise 
Dumbbells are comparatively inexpensive and can be used to tone up almost every muscle in our body. They are used for basic lifting movements (with exercises such as bicep curls, chest press) and are perfect for isolating one muscle group at once. That’s not it; they are also great for adding weight to basic exercises like squats and lunges.

Kettlebell: Perfect for full body movement 
For a weight loss workout, Kettlebell could be precisely what you need. Most of Kettlebell exercises work on many muscle groups simultaneously. For instance Kettlebell Swing includes shoulders, abdominals, hip flexors, quadriceps, gluteus and hamstrings, all at the same time. From repetition to repetition your heart rate goes up and you get that cardiovascular endurance. 

Dumbbell and kettlebell

A Quick Comparison 
Your choice of workout depends on what you're trying to accomplish. Dumbbell helps you bulk up and target specific muscles while Kettlebell brings groups of muscles into the action and adds a cardio component to your workout. Holding the dumbbell lets you focus on a single muscle group. Doing the same exercise with a Kettlebell requires a bit more work. Thus, if building bigger muscles is your goal, dumbbells are a better choice. But, if building strength and muscle power is your preference, go for Kettlebells. 
Dumbbell sits nicely in the hand while gripping Kettlebell can be a little more challenging for exercises except Kettlebell swinging. You can do swing exercises with dumbbells, but you can't replicate many dumbbell exercises with Kettlebells safely. Therefore, having someone at your gym to guide you on Kettlebells exercises is recommended to avoid injuries. 
The Dumbbell is balanced workout equipment, weighted alike on each side. This offers stability in a workout, giving you more control of the movements than Kettlebell. On the other hand, Kettlebells allow training across body planes. Also, Kettlebell improves Functional Strength- a strength that is applicable in everyday life situations.

The Final Verdict
Kettlebells and Dumbbells can be used interchangeably for some exercises, such as lateral raises or bicep curls. Still, they are quite different. They target your muscles differently, work them differently. Therefore, you don't have to replace one for the other; adding both to your workout regimen can give you a balanced approach to look super-fit.

Choosing the right pair of Jogging Shoes

Jogging is one of the most economical of sports. After all, it only requires a good pair of jogging shoes for a good run, right? But hey, having the right jogging shoe makes all the difference as it can either make your exercise an enjoyable hobby or a painful experience.
Picking the right pair of jogging shoes can be quite tricky, especially if it's your first time. When there are several options to choose from, it’s okay to be confused. Looking at how intensely you run and how much you run will help you choose the best shoes for you. Here are a few more factors to consider:


Brand and Gender
The first thing is to choose a pair from a brand of repute. Whether you buy shoes online or purchase them from an outlet nearby, you can always find great prices to fit your budget. Choose ones designed only for your gender. Men and women's feet are different in various ways (due to different patterns of movement). Wearing shoes meant for another sex may cause you a lot of ergonomic issues, even if they match your size. So beware!

Shoe Weight and Heel 
Always pick up a shoe that feels light. A lightweight running shoe, not only prevents injury but also allows you to start jogging without overtaxing your body. Check the heel, to figure whether it is ‘stiff enough’ to support your ankles.

Shoe Size
Don’t get hung up on shoe size; it is merely a guide. A shoe should fit you snugly without any constriction to the circulation in your feet. While there should not be excessive movement within the shoe, you must ensure that it encases around your foot perfectly, it shouldn’t squeeze your foot. However, at the front of the shoe, where your toe is, it’s okay to have half an inch of extra for comfort.

Jogging Tracks 
If you jog on the road or on a concrete track, make sure that the shoe that you pick is designed just for running. Go to brands and recommended stores that sell footwear and other running/ specific sports equipment.  Some specialty stores hire experienced joggers who can help you in selecting the most suitable jogging shoes, informing you also on the latest types and styles.

Socks and Aftercare
Socks are Shoe’s partners in crime. The thickness of the socks can change how a shoe fits; therefore it is advised to buy new socks with new shoes. Lastly, if you want your shoes to serve you for a long time, use Shoe Inserts. Shoe Inserts for various foot types are available (flat feet, low arches, high arches or rolling feet) at a very nominal price.
