Monday Funday Workout

I’m a firm believer in enjoying every single day – even Mondays! There are way too many people out there who dread Mondays. Why is that??? If you don’t enjoy life on a Monday, then you need to get some things straightened out.

Here are the two most important things that help me be happy every day: 1) doing something you love and 2) having a positive mindset. How about you?

If you’re anything like me and you love kettlebells and/or being active (which I’m guessing many of you are since you’re subscribed to my mailing list…), incorporating a fun workout every day is key to finding that daily happiness!

So without further ado, your dose of a Monday Funday workout…

Build stability and flexibility with isometric drills

Kettlebell Sport is first and foremost an endurance sport, not a strength sport. Beginners often confuse the two and move up in weight too quickly, without realizing that it takes months for your joints, tendons, and ligaments to adapt to being under load for such a long period of time (compared to the few seconds spent under load in any other weightlifting sport). Unfortunately, this often leads to an overuse injury.

Beginners can avoid overuse injuries and prep their joints and tissues more effectively by incorporating isometric drills into their training, i.e. overhead hold, rack hold, farmer walk. These drills will build stability and strength, as well as teach the lifter how to relax in the rest positions.

Balanced Body Blitz Workout

What does it mean for a workout to be “balanced”? 

Injury and dysfunction stem from imbalance in some shape or form. Keeping your workouts balanced is important for the body’s resistance to injury and physical longevity.
Your training should be balanced by incorporating all the different ways your body can move: squat, push, pull, hinge, rotation, hanging, and inversion. In addition, your training should include exercises performed in the sagittal, frontal, and transverse planes.

Hello Hamstrings Workout

There are many reasons why you should strengthen your hamstrings.

If you sit often, the hamstrings get shortened and weak.
If you’re a runner, stronger hamstrings will prevent injury.
If you’re a Kettlebell Sport lifter, meaty hamstrings give you more power.
If you’re quad-dominant, you should balance your body with hamstring work.

…and many more.

The kettlebell is one of the best tools to work the hamstrings!
All of the power for swinging work comes from the hamstrings (and glutes). So as you’ve probably guessed by now, this week’s workout focuses on the hamstrings… also, you get a chance to test your 5 minute Snatch number!
