When your training program works like magic…

The biggest reward of being a coach is when your training program works like magic and your student meets their goal in competition.

As a lifter and a coach, I am constantly learning new elements to writing training programs and teaching different individuals. Continue reading

Champions don’t make the best coaches

So you can talk, walk, run, and jump – but can you teach someone else how to do it?

If you’ve been doing something for so long that no conscious effort is required, it’s not always easy to remember what it felt like before you knew how to do it.

You don’t need to be a champion to be a great coach. Continue reading

Setting records at the West Coast Kettlebell Sport Classic

I traveled to my old stomping grounds in the Bay Area this past weekend to compete at the West Coast Classic. As always, the event was meticulously planned and executed. The turnout was a little smaller than previous years – due to the Superbowl being hosted nearby – but it made for a super fun event! The day culminated with an exciting showdown between Team Canada and Team USA (with a number of American lifters playing for Canada).

Lots of records were set on Saturday! Continue reading

Internal Dialogue of a Female Kettlebell Lifter: Part 1

Kettlebell Sport is an endurance sport more than anything else – not just of the body, but of the mind. Lifters push through an immense amount of discomfort to get through the mental and physical battle of a 10 minute set.”What were you thinking while you were lifting?” is a common question from spectators, and as an athlete you often wonder whether everyone else on the platform next to you is struggling as much as you are. This series of posts is a chance to get a glimpse into the mind of a wide variety of lifters of all nationalities while completing a 10 minute set – male, female, beginner, elite, Bolt style, Girevoy Sport style, etc.

Techniques and training methods shouldn’t be a “secret”

I love teaching people what I know about Kettlebell Sport.

I’ve only been doing the sport for four years, so like everyone else I am still learning. What I know is probably just a small portion of the knowledge that more experienced coaches (who have spent their lives in the sport) have.

But I have a lot to share with you! Continue reading

And the bell went flying…

Despite the weather being a balmy 100 degrees and our gym being packed, we had a good turn out and great performances at the USAKL Bolt Kettlebell Sport competition on Saturday!

KOR had a strong team showing of 17 athletes (our team is growing fast!). I’m proud to say my students demonstrated good technical proficiency with the lighter bells (12-16kg), which is something I impress upon them is NECESSARY before moving up to the heavier weights.

Dan – 24kg Half Snatch – 95 repetitions Continue reading
