Kettlebell training increases EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption) resulting in an elevated fat loss state for up to 24 hours after you finish your workout – something you won’t get from lower intensity exercise. It also promotes the production of Growth Hormone – a hormone highly responsible for muscle gain and body fat loss. Furthermore, muscles burn 3 x as many calories than fat.
