There is no single piece of equipment, in my opinion, that can match the kettlebell for keeping humans fit and healthy. It is literally a gym in the palm of your hand.
Kettlebells are a functional resistance training tool that can:
- Build all round body strength
- Increase grip strength
- Promote muscle hypertrophy and build lean muscle mass
- Increase stamina
- Improve cardio
- Improve speed
- Improve flexibility
Studies have also found that kettlebell training reduces pain in the neck, shoulders and lower back.
These are just a few of the benefits of using the kettlebell.
No single nation can lay claim to inventing kettlebells as kettlebells have such a long history. However, the old Soviet Union have certainly left their mark on their popularity and training uses, especially in Russian athletics and the use in the Russian military. In Russia, they have kettlebells competitions, the kettlebell competitor is called girevoy and the kettlebells are weighed in poods. A pood is 16.38 kilograms or 36.11 pounds.
As well as using kettlebells you will be using various other pieces of equipment, such as slamballs, resistance bands, skipping ropes and various other pieces of kit, to get you into shape, build muscle stamina, strength and fitness.
In the lesson you will also be doing bodyweight exercises such as jumping jacks to press ups, to the not so well known exercise which I call Primal Motion.
Primal Motion builds strength and stamina in the body and the joints. They are static poses and animal movements to give you unique fitness.
Everything we do from dance to martial arts is based on movement, and movement is key to every motion.
T-shirt or vest, shorts or leggings. Trainers are ok but Parkour or water shoes are really good.
