With Kettlebells the difference between progressive technique and ineffective technique can sometimes be hard to determine! Here are 5 sure fire ways to put yourself on the right path to safe and fulfilling progression!
The beautiful thing about Kettlebell training is that the programs effectively raise the overall physical awareness of the lifter, requiring a constant and focused physical and mental engagement.
Over the years I have had the benefit of watching so many participants improve and as a teacher there's not much that makes me happier than watching my students get comfortable with my program.
Regardless of how long it has taken, something that is always constant with proper Kettlebell training is that people do get stronger. But, to be honest, I do have to say that this does not always come with an easy task.
All NCK training programs start with an introduction to the concept of engaging the entire musculature against any physical resistance. I refer to it as Radiant Compression and while the act makes it possible to safely move heavier loads, it also helps the lifter develop a firm understanding of how to apply our entire ability to any physical task.
Believe it or not, for me, one of the biggest dangers in Kettlebell lifting is when people stick to using only the Kettlebells that feel "light and easy" to lift.
Train safely, effectively, and stay healthy and your ability is bound to improve. Guaranteed!
It all comes down to keeping ourselves safe and feeling good about what we’re doing, without injury and without forced inactivity.
