Beginners Kettlebell Routine
Trammell's Health & Fitness Tips - Health, Fitness, Nutrition & Training Tips to Keep you Healthy and Motivated
As a Portland personal trainer I'd say the exercises included are basic but brutally effective, and form on these moves should be perfected before moving on to a more advanced kettlebell exercises:
- Cotter the founder of the kettlebell recommends that strong men of 220 pounds or more should use a 53 pound kettlebell and men weighing less than 180 pounds with moderate levels of strength should use a 35 pound kettlebell.
- Perform the workouts 3 days a week with 1 to 2 days of rest in between workouts.
- Follow this routine for 4-8 weeks, then either try a more advanced kettlebell program or return to your typical workouts.
If you are returning to traditional bodybuilding training using dumbells, machines and barbells you can incorporate kettlebell exercises into those workouts, as well, for additional training benefits.
