“Training Camp” – Themed Virtual FVT Boot Camp Workout (video recording)

To celebrate the kick off of the NFL season, we held a special themed “Training Camp” virtual boot camp workout on Zoom.

The big idea was:

“We’ll take you back to training camp and work out like an athlete. You’ll get a *tiny* taste of what football players do to get ready for the season!”

This is the recording of the special event.

Get ready for a fun and exhausting workout! 🙂

[new vid] KB Press Grip Tip!

When pressing a kettlebell, we want to get tight and stable before initiating the movement.

This will help you increase stability between the ground and the ‘bell, and generate more force.

One of the keys to doing this is your grip.

A common mistake we see is folks pressing with an “open” hand when pressing (watch video clip to see what I mean).So my tip for today is, don’t do this! 😉

Use a strong and tight grip when pressing. 

Think about crushing the bell as you initiate the move.

Give it a try at your next press workout, and I think you’ll instantly feel the difference!

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! –

[video] Kettlebell Waiter’s Walk

A waiter’s walk is performed by simply holding a weight over head and walking.

It’s one of the best ways around to build shoulder stability and strength.

Using a kettlebell to do the movement is a great variation as the obliques and spinal erectors get extra work.

Here’s how to do it:

1 – Pick up kettlebell

2 – Brace your abs tight, and press kettlebell overhead

3 – Take a walk!

Kettlebell EMOM Finisher

Just finished with our groups this morning at FVT. We did this Kettlebell EMOM Finisher at the end of one of the workouts. It was really challenging, but people loved it. So thought I would do a quick video and share, so that you can try it too!

I go through one round of the workout in real time in today’s video:

– 5 KB presses per side

– 10 goblet squats

– 10 KB rows per side

– 20 squat jumps

But for the full workout, you’ll want to do three rounds.

And remember – EMOM stands for “every minute on the minute”. So you’ll set your timer for one minute intervals. At the beginning of each minute, do the prescribed amount of reps for each exercise. Your rest starts when you finish the work, and goes until the next minute interval starts.

Enjoy!

PS – Almost forgot – our registration for our new 28-day Kettlebell EMOM Challenge 2.0 opens tomorrow! Stay tuned 💪

[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 –
