Kettlebell Training Does Get Easier

As interest in Kettlebells grows in Central VT, and more people take advantage of training opportunities, I have had the benefit of witnessing the community around me grow astonishingly strong. It’s not that Kettlebell Training is the only way that we have achieved astonishing strength amongst us. It’s really just that Kettlebells have been the easiest way to get stronger for a lot of people who have not had success with weight training, and it will most likely continue to be a valuable device and training program for centuries to come.

The greatest benefit in training with Kettlebells is that, once you’ve learned how to properly apply the technique, the movements become smooth and extremely efficient. The flow of movement created by a seasoned Kettlebell lifter appears to seamlessly power itself, which makes the lifting process even more graceful and enjoyable, and allows for a safer training experience every time. This seemingly effortless practice is the result of a lot of time spent focusing on movement specifics, and a whole lot of repetitions put in. Below is SF based Master of Sport Surya Voinar-Fowler…

When you’re getting beat up by incorrect technique how can you expect any training practice to produce healthy results? For me, Kettlebell Training is primarily seen as practice for when I’m stronger than I am right now, not as an exploitation of my current physical ability; that’s why I post videos of other people performing amazing things, and that is why I encourage you to find sources of inspiration in your own Kettlebell training practice. For instance, for the past few years I have been using videos of Ivan Denisov’s lifting to inspire me in my practice. If you want to see someone make it look easy, watch the first and last minute of the video below…

It was reading about Denisov that led me to look as deeply into Kettlebell Training as I have. In this depth, I have discovered a world of education and resource, and inspiration and wonder. If you wonder why go to 2:04 of the video below and watch Fedor Fuglev work…

The aspects of Kettlebell Training that work to increase overall lifting performance lie in our ability to use them correctly to train at phenomenal endurance levels and at high strength ratios. I trust that generations of Kettlebell Lifters will continue to reach high levels of agility, strength, fitness, and vitality at a low risk of complication, using the Kettlebell as a tool for centuries to come.
