The most misunderstood fitness tool is also one of the most effective, when used properly. The problem is that no one knows how to use them properly.
The most misunderstood fitness tool: kettlebells
Think about this: Should you could burn fat, gain muscle and strength, and eliminate lower back pain, knee pain, and shoulder pain all with ONE tool, would you get it done? Of course you would. Why, then, are gyms across the nation not filled with kettlebells in all sizes, with people swinging their hearts out? Because not many people know how to use kettlebells properly. When you unlock the magic of the kettlebell swing, wonderful things happen. Your hips open, allowing your back to ease from perma-extension. Your glutes get stronger, allowing your knees to unwind. Your lats get stronger, enhancing posture and much less stress headaches. You’re slimming down, getting fitter, and feeling just like a million bucks, inside and out. Suddenly, your other hobbies are improving; you are able to run faster, jump higher, tackle harder, swim better, and bike further.
Kettlebells: like steroids, with a free butt lift
The secret to all of the is finding a trainer that possesses this information. From the thousands of gyms that even?have kettlebells, how many of them possess a kettlebell-certified trainer on hand? We’re a bit of a unicorn, my friends.
Shocker: your arms have almost no involvement in swinging a kettlebell
Sure, there can be someone on staff who attended Youtube University, watched a few how-to videos, and now implements these often unsafe maneuvers to anyone who asks about the pile of kettlebells within the corner. But without proper coaching regarding how to execute a hip hinge, not swinging above shoulder height, and locking on the core, none of the benefits will be reaped.
Train smarter, not harder
Forget the hours and hours of conventional training and expensive equipment. Purchase a couple bells, hire a knowledgeable trainer who can deliver affordable programming, and obtain your swing on.
