Sample Kettlebell Routine

Kettlebell training is a remarkably effective way of improving strength, endurance, flexibility, as well as decreasing risk of injuries from other sports (when performed correctly).  Below I have provided a sample beginners routine.  I hope you find it helpful.

Warm up:
light jog or run in place 1-2 min.

dynamic stretching routine, click here for example

Turkish get up: 5 reps/side (don't EVER rush these, and be sure to use perfect form)

swings - 20 reps

repeat circuit 3 times

clean - 20 reps/side

high pull - 20 reps/side

repeat circuit 3 times

active cool down 3-5 min

brief, light stretching (static or dynamic) 2-5 min

I know it doesn't sound like much, but believe me when I say that you're in for a surprise on how much exertion it takes to get this done.  

I hope you enjoy this!

Stay Healthy,

Kirk Iodice, DC, ART
