I want you to imagine obtaining an optimal level of strength and conditioning right now within the scope of your training program. What are you currently doing right now to know that you are getting the most out of your strength and conditioning program? I want to talk about a couple of drills here that you can implement in order for you to develop superior speed, explosive muscular power, and the core strength to execute any athletic-based movement necessary for you to be the best!

1. The Kettlebell Figure Eights To A Hold: This is a bit of a sophisticated drill to watch, but it is rather simple to execute once you are familiar with the technique. To start, you will only use a single kettlebell for this drill. You may want to practice with a relatively light bell until you get the hang of the movement. You want to begin by standing with your feet slightly wider than shoulder width distance apart. Squat down and grab the bell with your right hand. With your hips and knees flexed in a squat position simply pass the bell between your legs with your right hand and grab the bell with your left hand. At this point you are still flexed at the knees and hips and the bell is near the ground with you holding it with your left hand. From this point you will simply want to execute an aggressive hip snap and pull extending your knees and hips allowing the bell to fly up to your chest level positioned at your right pectoral muscle. At the point you pull it to here catch the rounded bell end of the bell with your right hand at your right pec. Continue this motion by switching sides passing the bell back between your legs and doing the same thing to the opposite side.

2. Alternating Arm Kettlebell Swings: Athletic performance is one of the kettlebell’s special traits. You can incorporate movement based lifts with sufficient resistance to acquire tremendous athletic conditioning. For this drill you will be doing just that. To execute this drill you will simply want to complete the single-arm swing. As you do so you will alternate arms every time you swing the bell at the top of the movement. This will certainly work on your awareness and total mental focus involved in the drill. Simply execute a set of about 30 total swings (15 each arm) to start out. Your strength and conditioning program will ascend to new heights with both of these powerful drills. Give it a try!
