The Jerk

The kettlebell jerk is another overhead, ballistic kettlebell lift that uses more leg power and less upper body strength than the push press. This means that it is a more powerful lift and will allow you to perform more reps or get a heavier weight overhead than you can with the push press.   The Kettlebell Jerk is an excellent full body exercise that requires a high degree of coordination, timing, and the ability to generate maximum power in a short range of motion. Although it can be used for developing maximal strength, this movement is best suited for “work capacity,” or the ability to be strong, fast, and explosive over longer durations.   Along with the Long Cycle (also called Clean & Jerk) and Snatch, the Jerk is one of the primary events in Kettlebell Sport competition. It is most commonly coupled with the Snatch in the Biathlon event. In competition, athletes lift for five or ten minute sets for as many reps as possible with technical proficiency without putting the kettlebells down. KETTLEBELL JERK TECHNIQUE   The Jerk Has 5 Primary Technique Components: Half Squat 2. Bump 3. Undersquat 4. Stand to Lockout/Fixation 5. Drop to Rack Position   Here is a video of the full Double Clean &...

What size kettlebell do I need?

One of the most popular questions I get asked is: What size kettlebell weights should I buy or what is the best kettlebell weight for beginners? In this quick guide to kettlebell weight selection I’ll show you which kettlebell weights you should start with and exactly how many kettlebells you’ll need in the future. One of the biggest misconceptions is that kettlebells are used the same as dumbbells and therefore the weights must be the same or that you need a full set of every size working up incrementally to include every possible weight. Not to mention,  I feel that sometimes other trainers expect a lot from women or complete beginners in terms of upper body strength or those worried about injuries or existing conditions, this can mean that sometimes a lighter weight works better here. And then there is the type of kettlebell, in terms of the material and shape, all of which can play a large part in determining the best choice.   Watch this video on the best starting weight for kettlebell training:   All kettlebell exercises are based on full body movements so unlike dumbbell training there is very little isolation based exercises like bicep curls or...

[VEGANUARY] What are the health benefits of following a plant based diet?

What is a Plant-Based Diet?   The simple answer, of course, is that you eat plants. You start to eliminate animals and (eventually) animal products like dairy and eggs. The less simple answer is there is an abundance of plant foods that most people never eat, and eating a plant-based diet means you might widen the variety of foods you eat. For example, some of my favorite foods include: tempeh, tofu, kale, broccoli, quinoa, ground flaxseeds, ground chia seeds, raw almonds and walnuts, raw almond butter, olive oil, all kinds of berries, figs, avocados, tomatoes, lentils, black beans, spirulina, hemp seeds, nutritional yeast, almond milk, sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, mangoes, pineapple, garlic, chai tea, brown rice, rye bread, brown rice, steel-cut oats. Since I went 100% plant-based (and being a vegetarian for 23 years I have only been truly plant based for the last 10 years and even vegan for a year), I’ve noticed a much higher sense of well-being overall, along with other health benefits. I also haven’t suffered from a protein shortage or calcium deficiency either, in case you’re one of the many who worry about this issue.  In fact, I've built strength and muscle during this time.  ...

The Queen of all Kettlebell Exercises: The Snatch

Kettlebell Snatch Overview   The QUEEN to the Kettlebell Swing KING or why not, the holy grail of full body exercises is the Kettlebell Snatch. You need to ensure you have an excellent Swing and have also mastered the Turkish Get Up before even contemplating this exercise.   Many people struggle to master kettlebell snatches. It’s daunting having a heavy weight above the head and the speed at which it gets there can be off putting too. There are also timing issues necessary for the Snatch to avoid banging the wrists and jerking the arm.   The KB Snatch works the entire body from head to toe and is considered a pulling movement. Taking the kettlebell from the top position, absorbing the weight and then changing momentum at the bottom takes a lot of energy. KB snatches are certainly a cardiovascular exercise although not as much as the High Pull because you can grab periods of rest at the top of the movement.   Watch a full demonstration and progressions of the Snatch: 5 Kettlebell Snatch Benefits 1 – Huge Fat Loss Exercise The snatch uses hundreds of muscles in just one movement. The more muscles you use the more energy required and subsequently...

Teaching Points for the Kettlebell Overhead Press

The kettlebell press, overhead press or military press can transform your upper body making it look, feel and perform like a total superhero. However, the kettlebell shoulder press is not as simple as just pressing a kettlebell over your head a few times. You can choose between the single arm kettlebell press or the double arm press. You can use various pressing stances and also use momentum for a kb push press or jerk press. Let’s delve deeper into this important kettlebell overhead press exercise and understand why and how it should be used for maximum results. Benefits of the Kettlebell Press   The KB overhead press takes the kettlebell from the racked position at the chest to overhead and into a straight arm position. When performed correctly the kettlebell press lights up almost all the muscles in your body. Creating overhead strength is important not only to strengthen the upper body but also so that daily overhead tasks become a lot easier like lifting a cabin bag into the overhead locker on a plane. Your heart and lungs will also have to work hard when overhead pressing correctly because the heart has to push blood all the way up to...
