What is the Center of Gravity?

In the context of exercise, the center of gravity is a theoretical point in the body where the body’s total weight is thought to be concentrated. The precise location changes constantly with every new position of the body and limbs. Hence, its placement is determined by the form of the body.

The lower the center of gravity is, the more stable the object is. The higher it is, the more likely the object is to topple over. For training purposes, it’s relevant to know that the higher we move the object/kettlebells away from the ground, the more instability we create. Working with instability creates stability.
