THE BASICS OF KETTLEBELL SPORT:

  • endurance kettlebell lifting, lifters have 10 minutes to complete as many reps as possible
  • efficiency and technique are important to maintain energy throughout set
  • lifters compete in specific lifts with either one arm or two arms

THE BENEFITS:

  1. great goals to motivate your workouts
  2. blend of strength, endurance, balance and coordination in one workout equals efficiency
  3. build amazing mental tenacity, this carries over to other aspects of life

Kettlebell Sport has all the elements that make for a good training regimen and workout! You build strength, endurance and test your will!

Kettlebell Kings has collaborated with Texas Kettlebell Academy, which trains some of the top Kettlebell Sport athletes in the country, to develop a four week training program designed to help you get started. Texas Kettlebell Academy also hosts the annual Texas Open, now the Kettlebell Kings Texas Open, which is attended by top kettlebell lifters from around the world. We highly recommend you give it a look should you decide to become more involved in Kettlebell Sport, it is in our great hometown of Austin, Texas!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

If you subscribe to our weekly workouts, we will be designing the format just like that. After you sign up, for the next four weeks you will receive an email each week which breaks down your training regimen for that week and how to apply it. Each email will list your workout each day of the week as well as links to demonstrations about how to perform each lift correctly. We like this format because it keeps your workouts new, exciting and challenging which is important to break up the monotony of knowing what is coming each week.

The training program is three days per week (example: M,W,F or T,TH,S), just make sure to take a rest day between days and then two days after the third day over a seven day period.

ALSO, if you have any questions you can consult directly with the experts who crafted this training throughout the four week program!
