Ladies the kettlebell is a fitness device that is sure to take your training program to levels you never thought possible. Just like a Greek Goddess statue chiseled from stone you can have a body that resembles nothing short of perfection with the help of the iron bell! All you need to do is take the time to learn the basics and from there your workouts will soar with success. Check out the following 2 drills that you can implement to start on your road to physical perfection.
1. The Double-Arm Swing: This is the more base lift of the kettlebell that involves a big “pulling” movement. To start, place the bell between your feet with your feet about shoulder width apart. From here simply perform a proper squat to pick the bell up. Allow the bell to hang around your groin. Next, you need to execute a technique known as the hip snap in order to create momentum to swing the bell back and forth from between your legs up to your chest level. This hip snap motion is performed by you flexing and extending at both your hips and knees back and forth in a continuous motion. As you do this keep your arms straight, your shoulders retracted, and fight against the sensation of being pulled forward. Attempt to do this for 2 to 3 minutes with a moderately heavy bell if you want a killer workout. Fat-loss and weight-loss will come quicker than anything by you performing this single lift.
2. The Single-Arm Swing: To further enhance and intensify your kettlebell training start executing the single-arm swing once you master the double-arm swing. For the single-arm swing you will start out the same exact way as the double-arm. The obvious difference is that you will only be using one arm. A key less noticeable difference though is ensuring your grip by using a “hooking” technique. This is done when you reach down to grab the kettlebell. Simply grab the handle and slightly rotate your hand so that your knuckles are pointing to the sphere of the kettlebell. From here pick it up and you will see that your shoulder naturally is pulled forward.
This is a normal mechanical action of your body. From here perform the hip snap just like before. As you swing the bell allow your arm to rotate to a “thumbs down” position at the bottom of the arc of the swing and then allow it to rotate back to a “palms down” position at the top of the swing! Attempt to perform 20 of these in each arm with a moderately heavy bell to start. You will quickly understand why kettlebell training for women is so effective immediately after you finish the set! Train hard and enjoy.
