Kettlebell Conditioning helps to steer you through essential foundational exercises, key movement, and swing patterns prior to undertaking more complex power drills using both single and double kettlebells. With this book, you can condition every part of your body by working out with kettlebells, and the Body Coach, Paul Collins, shows you how!
Every good exercise program starts with a method. In Kettlebell Conditioning, Coach Paul Collins has developed the 4-Stage BodyBell™ that allows you to learn the basic strength and swing pattern drills before more complex power-oriented movement patterns. This method of progression is:
Stage 1: General Strength
Stage 2: Swing Pattern
Stage 3: Complex
Stage 4: Power
This allows you time to establish appropriate strength throughout the body, in your muscles, joints, energy and nervous system so that you can progressively adapt to new functional and more powerful swings and movement patterns over time for optimal gains.
The unique shape of the kettlebell challenges the whole body as the hand, arm, shoulder, and core region controls the displacement of weight and counteraction of muscles with each movement.
Kettlebell Conditioning is loaded with instructions on each exercise. Color photos demonstrate proper positioning for each movement.
