Getting Stronger through Kettlebells

July 22, 2010 at 8:34 pm 4 comments

Do you want to get stronger? By strong, I don’t mean bulging biceps and 12 pack abs. I am refering to a strength that will sustain you for a lifetime, keep you pain free and injury free to ejnoy all the things you love doing. The majority of the population has a perception that lifting heavy weights will result in getting big and bulky. I have found just the opposite, that lifting heavy will accelerate fat loss, get you toned and reshape your body. Do you want results quick, Lift Heavy Weights!!

Implementing Kettlebells as my main training tool has helped me reshape my body, loose fat and tone up. I have been working with Kettlebells for 3 years and have made amazing gains in my strength. I have included some videos below to share some of my achievements with you. I can now snatch a 24kg (53lbs) bell for multiple reps and do a turkish get up with a 24kg (53lbs) bell for a total of 18 reps (9 per side). The last exercise may look like it is preformed with much smaller weights, actually it is double 8kg bells (18lbs each), however I would most likely not be able to perform this exercise without consistently lifting heavy weight.

Not all exercises are meant to be a feat of brut strength, but some are meant to be performed with a small or moderate weight focusing more on improving your mobility and stability. Remember that the quality and consistency of your exercise will alter your results!

Enjoy the videos….more to come in August with the 28kg (63lbs), I’ve almost got the 28kg get up on both sides, still needs just a bit of work before I share a video.

    Nice job Kristen! Fantastic work and very well said. As you know, my wife Nikki has been working with heavy weights for quite some time and is seriously strong like yourself! But she does not look anything near a body builder.
