Today’s post is a bit of a change of pace – I typically cover the basics of kettlebell training on this blog and focus mostly on the mastery and variations of the ‘big 5’ kettlebell exercises (the swing, turkish get up, goblet squat, clean and press, and snatch).
There’s no denying that folks are doing all kinds of crazy stuff with kettlebells outside of these fundamental drills (some good, some bad – but that’s a discussion for another day 🙂 ). And once you’ve learned and mastered the basics, incorporating some advanced drills like the ones covered in these videos can help ‘kick start’ you out of a training plateau and keep your workouts interesting. I hope you enjoy these videos I’ve hand-picked from YouTube that showcase some unique kettlebell training methods:
