Comments: Like a lot of pros in my
business, I too have been "re-educated" by the simple yet effective
Russian Kettlebell (KB). It is an amazing tool. When respected
and used properly, it is also a highly effective and safe tool that will
move you better. KB strength is built on a foundation of stability.
Less efficient strength training builds strength but beyond what can be
stabilized i.e. strength that is not controlled. If you want to
build strength based on stability and control, properly use a kettlebell.
KBs are alive vs. many traditional lifts which seem
"dead" compared to the highly active KB dynamic swing patterns.
For more details, check out my handouts and recommendations below.
are the real deal, but as usual, people are misusing them like other types
of exercise equipment. There is only ONE way to use a
kettlebell--the RIGHT way with ultimate respect! No matter what you
do with them, come back to the basic foundational movements and safety
then you'll be fine. I'm using them safely and effectively with my
corporate clients--so can you.
