The Joy of Kettlebells!

Here is a great sequence I did this afternoon with my very favorite training tool…..the Kettlebell!

Why is it my favorite?  I struggle big time with proximal stability.  My longs limbs can take some of the blame for this issue.  When you have long legs and arms it makes for long levers.  The longer the lever, the greater the need for stability in the middle.  I have struggled over the years finding exercises that can address this issue, and frankly I was getting sick of doing Dead Bugs.  The reality is that most everything we do is standing, so while there are some phenomenal exercises that can be done on the floor, ultimately to really attack this issue you have to engage the ground and get moving.  This is where the Kettlebells stand many notches above the rest!

  • 10 One arm kettlebell swings
  • 10 Rack Squats
  • 5 Push Presses
  • 10 Snatches
  • 10 One arm rows

Repeat this sequence 3 times on each side, alternating right and left.  See if you can get through it all without a break!

See you tomorrow!

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.
