3 Main Takeaways:

  • Kettlebell training is a unique and ballistic style of training that uses about 40% more core when you are moving through movements giving you faster results with similar movements you would use with traditional strength training.
  • When you are training with kettlebells you need to know how to do the swing. This movement is the key to being capable to do all the other movements well and without injury.
  • You need to look for trainers with RKC certifications in order to be sure you are getting the most effective and safest training possible with kettlebells. Since the movements are more ballistic and require more multi joint movement there is a higher risk of injury associated to their use if you are not familiar with the movements or do not have the right coach to help guide you.
