Increase grip endurance for Kettlebell Sport

Kettlebell Sport is all about finding relaxation while under duress. The lifter must be able to contract the appropriate muscles, while simultaneously keeping others from overworking.

If you tense your shoulder, it will automatically cause you to grip harder and overwork the forearm. In a snatch set especially, keeping your shoulder relaxed is essential to grip endurance. 


Please watch the video and let me know what you think in the comments.

What is a kettlebell “jerk”?

The kettlebell jerk is a movement that utilizes the momentum generated by the legs to bring the bells from the rack position to the overhead position. While your arms and shoulders are working to stabilize, they should not be pushing the bells into the overhead position (or the timing will be off). The quicker the launch and the more relaxed the triceps are, the faster the lifter will be able to jerk without feeling muscular fatigue of the upper body.

Here is a clip of one of my training sets, Continue reading

KB Fit Britt Warm Up Routine

Last week I realized that I don’t incorporate warm ups into the weekly workout videos I make – I’m just assuming you’re doing a warm up before you attempt the workout. However, one should never assume, so I decided to make a video exemplifying the type of warm up I usually do before I begin my kettlebell training.

An effective, well-balanced warm up should:

  • Raise your core temperature
  • Drill the movements you are going to do in the workout at a lower speed, difficulty level, or resistance
  • Include skill work that requires consistent practice and/or mental focus
  • Limber up your muscles, ligaments, and joints to prepare them to stretch and contract
  • Incorporate different planes of movement i.e. frontal, sagittal, transverse

What’s your favorite warm up routine? Hit reply – I’d love to hear from you.
