Pre-Exhaustion Kettlebell Workout For Muscle Strength (Without Lifting Heavy)

One technique that’s been popular in strength circles for several decades is called “pre-exhaustion” training.

The idea is to pair an isolation move with a compound one for the same muscle group. For example, you might do flys before you bench press, or leg extensions before you squat.

In theory, the strategy allows for more muscle recruitment because supporting muscles no longer serve as limiting factors in an all-out set. Lighter weights must also be used with the compound movements, so injury risk is also reduced.

I think one of the big problems with this method is that it really only works best for very advanced lifters. If you can bench press 600 pounds for example, doing sets of five at 450-500 pounds is just incredibly taxing on the body and joints. Not to mention risky. But for 99% of people who are not lifting THAT much weight in the first place, it actually takes away from your objective, which is to use enough load to actually overload the muscle enough to grow.

For the majority of people who want to get stronger and add muscle, but still go easy on their body, I think there is a better method. It’s called Time-Volume Training.

Time-volume training uses something called training density instead. This method goes easier on your body, but still allows you to use an adequate load to stimulate the muscle.

More on how it all works HERE, but basically, density is a measure of how much work you can do in a certain timeframe. For example, if you bench press 200 lbs twenty times in 10 minutes, that works out to a “density” of 400 pounds per minute. If you can do 25 reps in 10 minutes next workout, that’s a density of 500 pounds per minute.

This increase in density means an increase in total workload, and your body responds to that training stimulus by building MUSCLE.

The Strange Truth About Reusable Food Wraps: Higher Testosterone Levels + Stronger Kettlellbell Workouts

I have something a little different to share with you today. I found a really interesting new product, and wanted to pass along the word:

–>> Etee Reusable Food Wraps

There are lots of reasons to use them, but a big one that relates to your kettlebell and strength training is that they’re good for your testosterone levels. Studies show that chemicals in plastic products can mimic estrogen in the body and cause lower test levels, which is bad news for muscle gain, fat loss, energy, libido, and more. 

If you’re trying to be healthier and avoid using plastic sandwich bags, these reusable wrappers are also perfect for you. I know I was constantly using them and creating unnecessary waste. But with these, you can just wrap your food up and be on your way. So convenient and eco-friendly!

You might not have thought of this, but plastic products could be killing your kettlebell goals! These wraps can help. Check out the link below to learn more and let me know how they work for you if you decide to give them a try:

Quick and Effective: 20-Minute Kettlebell Workout for a Minimalist

SUPERSET 1

Double KB Front Squats – 5 sets of 10

*The first two sets are to warm you up for the last three sets where you’re really working. You should be using the right weight here, so you can hold your form of course, but it should be HARD. Guys, maybe you’re doing double 44’s, 53’s, or double 62’s…. ladies, maybe double 26’s or double 35’s.

— minimal rest, move directly to —

Pull Ups – 5 sets of max reps – 1

*”Max reps -1″ means that you do one rep LESS than as many as you could do in one all-out set. I take a similar approach here and ease into it on the first two sets, then go for it on the last three. If you can do 7 reps in one all-out set for example, do 6… etc.

SUPERSET 2

Double KB Floor Press – 5 sets of 10

*Same approach as the squats. The first two sets are warm-ups and getting you ready for the last three sets where you’re really doing work. If you’re using the right weight here, you should be able to hold your form of
course, but it should be HARD. Guys, maybe you’re doing double 44’s, 53’s, or double 62’s…. ladies, maybe double 26’s or double 35’s.

— minimal rest, move directly to —

KB – loaded walking lunges – 5 sets of 8 per side

*Hold the KBs at your sides; choose a weight that challenges you but that you can do all reps with using good form.

That’s it! Keep the rest periods down and that workout should only take you 20 minutes.

How Rucking With A Kettlebell Can Give You Incredible Cardio Workouts

In today’s video, I show you how to do some kettlebell cardio in a way you probably never thought of!

*The backpack I use in the video is available for free at this link, just pay shipping: https://trk.knxtrk.com/SH56

I got turned on to the rucking thing a couple of years ago because I was looking for a way to get a workout similar to running without the impact.

In basic terms, rucking is just where you throw some weight in your backpack and go for a walk.

Here are a few additional tips:

– Walk fast and with a purpose. You want to get your heart rate up to around 50-70% of max.
– Not required, but try to see if you can find some uneven / hilly terrain to ruck.
– Start with 20 pounds or so, work up to 50+.
– Start with 30 mins, work up to 60+.

A kettlebell is actually a really great weight to use for this workout. Plus, you can take it out at some point during the workout, do some KB moves, do some bodyweight exercises, and then finish off by rucking back to where you started.

The backpack I am using in the video you can get free at this link, you just pay shipping: https://trk.knxtrk.com/SH56

I use mine all the time, for KB rucking workouts like the one I break down in today’s video, and much more!

To sum up, if you’re looking for an effective and challenging way to crank up your cardio routine, try this kettlebell ruck workout.
