Kettlebell Sport Programming Guidelines

For any sport or training goal, there are numerous methodologies on how to program to reach a desired result. Just Google any type of sport or training and you will get tons of videos and articles telling you what program is best. However, for Kettlebell Sport in particular, it can be hard to find good programming information on the internet (or anywhere, really).

I am not going to tell you exactly what my personal kettlebell program looks like. What I’m doing isn’t necessarily what you should be doing, and vice versa. There is no ONE PROGRAM that will work for everyone, especially at higher levels of training and competition.

The Perfect Pair Workout

The perfect pair: the kettlebell snatch and the turkish get up (TGU).

The snatch is an explosive pulling movement that trains the hamstrings, shoulders, back, arms, and core – as well as cardiovascular endurance. The TGU, on the other hand, is a slow stability exercise that trains every muscle in the body. Both exercises require proper technical execution and mental focus.

Complete 10 snatches on each arm, and then 1 TGU on each arm. Repeat for 10, 15, or 20 minutes.

To make this more challenging, increase the weight on the snatch and/or the TGU each round.

As you may have read in my recent “I’m a hypocrite” article, I sustained an injury to my ribcage cartilage at the end of April that took me out of my Kettlebell Sport training for over a month.

I’m a strong believer in the power of positive thinking, so I’m choosing to see my injury as an opportunity to learn instead of mulling over the time I’ve lost working towards my goals in Kettlebell Sport. In other words, I’ve decided to view my injury as a “blessing in disguise”.

Here are the lessons I’m taking from my injury:
