Respect the Kettlebell – Always practice all safety measures while training with Kettlebells. What you practice becomes permanent. Build safe and effective habits that your body will revert back to during the most intense workouts. When your body is under stress it will to exactly what it has been trained to do. The most common mistake is putting the Kettlebell down in an unsafe manner. Never round the back or shift your weight from your hells to your toes when placing the Kettlebell on the floor. The most important repetition is the last one. Mentally and physically focus as if you were doing another rep as you safely place the Kettlebell down.

Ask the Doctor – Notify your physician before beginning a new training routine. Kettlebell training is extremely intense at some times. It is not uncommon to raise your heart rate upwards of 200 beats per minute during a hard style training session. Seek advice from a reputable Cardiologist and an Orthopedist. Once you get the go ahead there are no more excuses!

Be aware of your surroundings at all times – The following conditions constitute an appropriate place to train with Kettlebells:

• Avoid facing direct sunlight

• Flat surface that is not slick

• Clear floor with no trip hazards

• Other people are removed from the path of the Kettlebell during snatches and swings.

• No concerns about property damage. A sports field is a great place to train.

Barefoot is best – Train barefoot or with flat thin soled shoes. The preferred method to enhance performance the best is to train barefoot. Cushioned tennis shoes shift your bodyweight to your toes. This compromises performance during snatches and swings and increases your chances of injuring your back. No shoes, no socks; this is the way to get the best results! Vibram five fingers, Converse Chuck Taylors and Wrestling shoes are acceptable to wear if training in an area that requires footwear.

Let go – When things go wrong, submit to the Kettlebell. Let go as soon as you feel the Kettlebell shift the weight forward to your toes, twist your shoulder, elbow or any other joints. Move your feet and guide the Kettlebell to fall harmlessly on the floor. Let it fall, Russian Kettlebells are made of cast iron, they will not break. The Kettlebell can break your foot or the floor so give it the space it needs and let it fall.

Quality over Quantity – Your primary goals should be to generate the most tension with your heavy lifts and the fiercest explosions with your quick movements. Power lifters nearly always stop 3 or more reps before failure. Your body’s natural tendency will be to sacrifice quality to increase quality. Train your body to do each and every rep with strict form. Be disciplined at all times and your results will speak for themselves.

Keep it moving – When your heart is racing after an intense set it is critical to keep moving. Do not lie down, stand still or slouch (the worst thing to do). Your body is in desperate need of oxygen. When you stop moving your heart has to work extra hard to get the blood and oxygen that it needs. Moving your legs by walking, jogging or shadow boxing is the best way to get blood back to the heart. Don’t stand still until your breathing and heart rate have slowed down and you feel halfway normal again.

Don’t be a slouch – Never slouch forward after an intense set of swings, snatches, high pulls or any exercise that requires bending forward. The best thing to do is to put your hands on your lower back with your fingers pointed downward and press while bending backwards and keeping your legs straight. Do 5 reps after each intense set. Try to bend further with each rep. The most likely cause of exercise related back pain is the overstretching of the muscles and ligaments. Our flexibility increases while we are working out. Do not bend forward or slouch during this time, practice the back bend drill listed above to reverse the movement.

Listen to your body – Our body doesn’t actually speak words but most of us don’t take the time to listen to what it is telling us. Gradually increase your training load. This means sets, reps, weight and flexibility and mobility requirements. Develop your range of motion gradually. Your body will thank you!

Use common sense – There never has been or will be a substitute for good judgment. If you lack this characteristic stick to the Pilates or water aerobics classes!
