Welcome to our 6 week beginner kettlebell course!
We are going to be focusing on learning proper technique in some of the basic exercises, in the Russian style of kettlebell training. By the end of the course, you will have a solid foundation of technique and strength from which you can build your kettlebell practice.
Some of the exercises we are going to learn are very different from what you may have experienced before. You might get frustrated with training your body to move in a new and different way. But stick with it and enjoy it. If you get stuck or need any help, please post in the Facebook group or email me at email@example.com.
**IMPORTANT** If you feel any pain in your joints in any of the exercises, please reach out to me right away. It may be that you need just a simple technique tweak or we may need to talk about making some modifications.
Please also remember to post technique videos so I can provide feedback to help you get better.
Each Sunday you will gain access to the videos for the upcoming week. Watch the videos, review the notes and post any questions in the Facebook group.
The programming is designed in a 4 or 5 day per week format; one day dedicated to practicing the technique video(s), 3 workouts that utilize the techniques you’ve learned and 1 bonus day of a body weight workout. Each workout is roughly 30 – 45 minutes and you are provided with some options on each video.
Sample programming template:
Monday – Technique practice
Tuesday – Workout #1
Wednesday – Rest or stretching
Thursday – Workout #2
Friday – Workout #3
Saturday – Rest or stretching
Sunday – Body Weight Workout (optional)
You can adjust the days to fit your schedule, but please try to keep 2 days of rest each week. (or 3 days if you opt out of the body weight workout) Please remember that each workout should be viewed as more time to practice technique. Stay mentally engaged in your movement quality and always take more rest between sets (or stop) if your technique starts to fail.
