Kettlebells and Kicks

Just dropping off a late night workout for you all that includes two of my favorite exercises…..Kettlebells and Kicking!

  • The alternating Kettlebell presses are surprisingly difficult.  Make sure to pick a weight that allows you to keep the core engaged, it’s easy to lean into the lower back with these but you actually want to feel you rib cage slightly pulled down.
  • Cleans are my favorite exercise right now, I love the feeling of driving from the ground to power the Kettlebell so that it almost floats for a second.
  • Snatches are my nemesis, long arms and unstable scapula make them annoying but completely necessary.  Jen Sinkler’s tip of feeling like you have a T Rex arm as you propel the weight up helps a ton!
  • The pull thru has basically replaced the plank for me, just do them because they work.
  • And of course some kicks to finish, rapid fire like Chuck Norris!

I'm Shawn, Performance Coach at Golfletica in Bellevue, Wa. I specialize in bringing out the awesome in athletes, especially golfers. 13 years ago I graduated from the home of the 2010 FCS Football Champions (Go Eags!) with a degree in Exercise Science and a broken down body from playing college golf. That lead to my mission to help the world move better, with less pain and killer dance moves. Thanks to the help of my partner in crime Dr. Harry Sese, not only am I playing pain free golf but I get to witness lives change everyday through the power of teamwork.
