TGU technique tip

I was getting ready to some Turkish get ups in my workout yesterday and thought – hey, I’ll shoot a video with a helpful drill for our KB Basics tribe.

I did NOT like TGUs when I first learned them… BUT I have learned to love them for the benefits that they provide. Learning how to do them right is well worth the time.

So one of the biggest sticking points is what’s called the “foot sweep” part of the move.

Check out today’s video for a drill that will help you with this and get better at the exercise.

Kettlebell Hip Hinge Drill (new vid)

One of the most popular kettlebell exercises out there is the kettlebell swing.

But it is also one of the most technical!

A common mistake with the move is to think that the swing is a squat, when it is in fact a hinge.

This drill allows you to learn the hip hinge pattern at a slower speed and lower intensity.

Check it out:

KETTLEBELL HIP HINGE DRILL

1 – Stand with feet shoulder width apart, with your heels about 18-24 inches from a wall

2 – Arms should be at your sides

3 – Keep lower back naturally arched

4 – Push hips + hamstrings as far back as you can

5 – Lower torso by bending at the hips

6 – Try to get torso parallel to the floor

H2H Kettlebell Swings (form breakdown)

H2H kettlebell swings will skyrocket your explosive strength, stamina, and agility.

But the form can be tricky.

Here are three tips to do them right:

1 – HIP POP – snap the hips out of the bottom of the move! This is always key with your swings, but perhaps even more so with the H2H swing, because it sets you up for…

2 – FLOAT – the KB should “float” at the top of the arc for a split second. This comes from tip #1, the hip pop, and properly gets us ready for the…

3 – HAND SWITCH – you’ve popped the hips, the ‘bell is floating in the air… now all you have to do is take one hand off and quickly replace with the other.

Check out the video to see a couple of different ways you can do this.

H2H swings can build your fitness AND add a new dimension of variety, enjoyment and intensity to your kettlebell training.

Enjoy! –

KB/BW “Hybrid Strength” – Free 6-Week Training Plan

Most people I find just want to be ready to rock and in good shape, all the time.

They want to be able to lift some decent weight, or play a pick up game of basketball, or go for a run and feel good… and not kill themselves in the process.

I’m guessing this might be along the lines of goals you have for yourself as well?

A big challenge folks seem to have though with this, is with the STRENGTH part. Particularly if they are working out at home, with minimal equipment etc.

They would like to do some traditional barbell-based training for example, but it’s just not feasible. They don’t have the time to drive to the gym and use the set up there, or the space or extra funds to set something up at home.

(Or maybe your gym is even closed due to current restrictions around the pandemic.)

So I’ve come up with this 6-week program designed to help you get STRONG – using nothing but a single KB and your own body weight!

It’s called KB/BW Hybrid Strength.

And you can get it right now 100% FREE, when you pick up up a copy of Fire Breather at the link below:

You’ll end up with a killer cardio-focused plan you can use to improve your conditioning and burn twice the calories…

…PLUS you’ll have a new 6-week KB/BW training plan that pairs with it perfectly to get STRONG, any time, any place, with just a couple of KBs and your own bodyweight.

[video] the Kettlebell Press

The kettlebell press.

With regular practice of the move, you’ll increase the strength of your, shoulders, upper back, chest, triceps, abs, and more!

Here’s how to do it right:

– Clean one ‘bell to the rack position at the shoulder

– Press the weight upward with the knees locked

– Lock your elbow and pause with the weight motionless overhead

– Working in the same line of action, actively pull the weight back down to the racked starting position

Squats are NOT bad for your knees; here’s why…

Myths quickly spread in the gym.

One of those common myths is that squats are bad for your knees.

But some recent research would contradict this idea.

Two large reviews looked at the impact of exercise on knee joints (see link at the bottom of this article).

And the big conclusion was that joint-loading exercises do not harm knee cartilage.

Here are some additional tips to make sure you’re on the right track:

1 – Squatting with good form is very important. A lot of people go wrong here, and blame the exercise… but it’s really because, well, you don’t know how to do it right. Check out the resources below for help.

2 – You have to work up to doing squats with full depth. If you haven’t squatted to full depth for a long time, build slowly and work towards it over the course of weeks and months. It takes a new client many times months at FVT to build up the leg strength, core strength, and flexiblity to be able to squat to full depth. If they have knee issues, sometimes they never squat to parallel. And that’s cool too! Do what’s right for you.

3 – Work up the volume slowly as well. Don’t come in day one and do hundreds of squats, and then complain that your knees hurt the next day, and never do them again. Do a few sets of low reps at first, and slowly build from there.

[new vid] Kettlebell Swing Variations: the Traveling Swing

If you’ve mastered the kettlebell swing and want to take things to the next level.. if you want a variation to mix up your workouts, but stay true to your programming… the sidestep swing is a great option!

Again – I’m assuming with this one that you have the basic swing down. That’s first.

HOW TO DO THE SIDESTEP SWING

– “Load up” like you’re getting ready for a standard swing – Hike the ‘bell back, and swing it up

– When the KB is floating in the air, take a quick step to the side first with your trail foot, then with your back foot

– Repeat for desired number of reps.

Nice variation, nice dynamic movement, adds some athleticism to your workout, and it’s harder than a regular swing too.

Keep training hard, and talk soon –

(new video) 3 Tips to Properly Rack a Kettlebell

3 Tips to Properly Rack a Kettlebell

When you are training with kettlebells, a lot of the moves require that you start from what we call a rack position.

Here are three tips to make sure you’re doing it right:

1 – WRIST STRAIGHT

Common mistake is to hold the KB with a bent wrist.

It’s weaker and puts added stress.

Keep it straight.

2 – HAND BELOW THE CHIN

Your hand should be below chin level.

You should also be able to touch your thumb to your collar bone.

3 – FOREARM VERTICAL

The forearm should be straight up and down when the KB is racked.

If I’m going to press the KB or whatever else, this gives me the best leverage and strength to be able to do that.
