The afterburn effect and how to maximise it

The “Afterburn Effect” and why KettleFit workouts guarantee you maximise it every time! After a long car trip your car’s engine stays warm as it gradually cools to a resting temperature. Here’s a cool fact: The same thing happens to your body after a workout. Similar to how a car engine stays warm, your body’s metabolism can continue to burn calories after an intense workout even when you are at complete rest. This physiological effect is called excess post exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), or more commonly called the Afterburn Effect. EPOC is the amount of oxygen required to restore your body to its normal, resting level of metabolic function (called homeostasis). It also explains how your body can continue to burn calories long after you’ve finished your workout. Here are seven things you should know about EPOC and how KettleFit workouts can optimise calorie burning from your workouts: Immediately after…

KettleFit is unique and delivers!

KettleFit Performance, Circuit, Kettlebell Strength or Beginner classes. Which class should you choose? We often get asked these questions by new clients wanting to understand the differences between the classes we offer at KettleFit.

How to train like an AFL player

How to train like an AFL player By Stuart Marsh Dec 18th, 2015 (image) iStock It's not just the short shorts that make women love AFL footballers – it's the sculpted physiques, incredible athleticism and sheer explosiveness that sets hearts aflutter. But training like an AFL player is not easy. Behind each player is a crack team of coaches, doctors, physiotherapists and facilities all working together to give them the best possible performance – and the best possible bodies. But that doesn't mean you can't replicate some of their training at home, says Jarrod Egan, one of the co-founders of KettleFit and a former strength and conditioning coach of Geelong, North Melbourne and Port Adelaide Football clubs. "A lot of your traditional gym programs are quite slow, with long rest periods and minimal cardio work," Egan told ninemsn Coach. "To replicate what the players do out on the field, you…

How to train like a professional cricket player

How to train like a professional cricket player By Stuart Marsh (image) iStock It's known as "the gentleman's game", and for a long time cricketers have trained like gentlemen too, hitting the nets once a week and knocking back a carton after a game. But with the advent of shorter forms like 20/20, increased pay packets and pressure to perform, that's all changing. Modern cricketers have to be explosively quick between the wickets and have enough strength to bowl balls as mind-bogglingly fast as 160km/h. Jarrod Egan, former strength and conditioning coach of the West End Redbacks and co-founder of KettleFit, gives ninemsn Coach a behind the scenes look at how a modern cricketer must prepare for game day. Your training should reflect your role in the team Cricket is by and large a technique-driven sport. Whether you're a batter or a bowler, the core of any cricket training program…

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…

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…
