We are going to begin a three part series highlighting kettlebell movements aimed at helping women who are beginning kettlebell users get the most out of their kettlebells. Quite a number of people who have entered our contests and subscribe to our workout list have identified as beginners, so we are doing this with them in mind. If you know anyone who you have been preaching the gospel of kettlebells to you can forward this post to them as a way to help them get started.
Our friend, Brittany van Schravendijk, will be walking us through video tutorials of the three movements we will be highlighting and then helping us put them all together for a workout at the end. Brittany is a Master of Sport, World Record Holder, and National Record Holder in Kettlebell Sport. Brittany is the Head Coach of Kettlebell Sport at KOR Strength and Conditioning in San Diego, California. She has traveled all over the world to teach Kettlebell Sport workshops. Brittany is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist through the NSCA.
The Kettlebell Deadlift:
– targets hamstrings, glutes and strengthens lower back
– stand with feet hipwidth apart, right outside kettlebell
– grab the bell while keeping our back flat and your arms straight
– avoid rounding back and pulling with back
– push away ground with your heels, squeeze glutes at top
– do not use your back to lift the kettlebell(s)
– try the suitecase deaflift after perfecting form
