Do you want to get Functional Strength and Cardio in one Hit ?

Everyone who goes to the gym would love to find a way to do their strength, core and cardio training at the same time. The average gym goer will spend about 45-60 mins in the weight room doing their strength program then they have to do their cardio which might be another 20-30 mins on a treadmill or bike. Now, I haven’t even mentioned the core strength program which might be another day or tapped onto the session above! This all goes together to create a really long session and I don’t know many people who have the time for all of this, do you? I’ve spent 17 years working at the highest level of professional sport in Australia and Europe and at this level, training time is vital and coaches and athletes want to maximize the time they spend on the track doing their sport rather than in the…

Kettlebell Snatches Build Aerobic Capacity

Kettlebells are nothing new, they have been used by the Russians since the 19th century and only recently has the western world realised their devastating ability to build lean, powerful, lighting-fast physiques! The Kettlebell Snatch is one of the fundamental exercises in kettlebell training and we use it at KettleFit in almost every program. It is based on the one arm kettlebell swing and looks simple, but requires coordinated, linked contractions of the lower body, back, shoulder and arm muscles to master. From personal experience using our Myzone live heart rate system I can tell you that it increases your heart rate faster than any other kettlebell exercise! A recent study from San Jose State University on seventeen female division 1 collegiate soccer players found that a high intensity kettlebell snatch workout (15 seconds of snatches followed by 15 seconds of rest for 20 minutes) improved aerobic capacity by 6.4%…

Pregnancy the Kettlefit Way

Article written by Kendall Richmond, A KettleFit member since November 2014. As a first time mum-to-be, there’s a pretty long list of questions constantly buzzing through my brain. But whether or not to continue exercising certainly hasn’t been one of them. Maintaining my twice-weekly sessions with Kettlefit throughout my pregnancy has not only benefitted my growing bubs — it’s kept me fit, balanced and ready to tackle the unknown territory ahead. The benefits of exercise during pregnancy Compared to the eat-for-two and stay-off-your-feet mentality that prevailed during my mother’s generation, women today are encouraged to stay active and physically fit throughout pregnancy. The advantages? Here are just a handful of the benefits that babycenter.com.au notes: Sleeping better at night Minimising pregnancy niggles, including backache Maintaining a healthy weight Managing your blood sugar levels if you develop gestational diabetes. While the list goes on, I’d say confidence is the biggest benefit…

The Top 3 Reasons Why You Should Train With Kettlebells

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZD6doMdUK4w Kettlebell training magnifies your power output Since classic kettlebell lifts such as the Snatch and the Clean & Jerk cannot be performed slowly, they develop a special quality known as power-endurance. This differs from strength-endurance. Strength-endurance is your ability to produce force over an extended period of time. Power-endurance is your ability to sustain fast muscular contractions over an extended period of time. Power-endurance is a quality that can determine who the winner is in sport. It also makes for a serious gruelling training session that will push both your body and mind to new levels. Kettlebell training dramatically increases fat loss and muscular endurance Kettlebell training involves total body functional strength training exercises performed multiple times. The repetition ranges are typically higher than conventional weight training and this combination of using both upper and lower body muscles over an extended period of time places large demands on the…

Scientifically Proven – Kettlebells Get Results!

We have known Kettlebell training gets results for some time, but until recently there has been very little scientific literature to back it up. This very popular resistance tool has been attributed to the success of many athletes and even movie stars such as Bruce Lee who famously trained with kettlebells throughout his career. Until now, nobody had quantified the mechanics and back loading during kettlebell training and the transference of kettlebell training to Strength, Power and Endurance. Recent articles in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research have demonstrated a multitude of benefits from Kettlebell training. McGill et al. (1) used electromyography, ground reaction forces (GRF’s) and 3D kinematic data recorded during exercises using a 16kg kettlebell. These variables where then put into a biomechanical model that explained the muscle activation levels required, GRF’s and spine, knee and hip compression and shear loads. As you can tell this was…

Port Adelaide hasn’t run out of gas, Brad Ebert profiles the men who are keeping Power up and running

These are the people who are responsible for making sure Port Adelaide sends out a team which is in peak physical condition to play each week. (via Brad Ebert - Adelaide Advertiser) THEY are the people behind the scenes. And they are responsible for making sure Port Adelaide sends out a team which is in peak physical condition to play each week. While there has been much debate about the value and credibility of sports science department’s at football clubs in the past 18 months due to the very public Essendon supplements saga, behind closed doors at the Power I have witnessed the meticulous work which has gone into making our team tick. And trust me, we are still ticking, despite talk that the players have run out of gas. Our recent form slump has nothing to do with fitness issues, with all the key in-house statistics showing we are…

The Five Pillars of Kettlebell Training

Many trainees often forget that kettlebells are weights and the rules of effective weight training apply to Kettlebell training. (via Mike Mahler) Many trainees often forget that kettlebells are weights and the rules of effective weight training apply to Kettlebell training. Similar to traditional weight training, effective kettlebell training requires a balanced approach and an emphasis on the basic compound drill that provide the most bang for the buck. For most trainees, following a regimen with a strong emphasis on a few basic exercises is the way to go. However, putting all of your efforts into one or two exercises long-term is not the way to go. There are five areas that are worth focusing on for balanced development. Lets get going. The Five Pillars: Press Pull Squat Lower body pull Core Whatever form of weight training you engage in, you want the five above areas covered. Now lets cover each…
