I see loads of Instagram posts using kettlebells, the good, the bad and the ugly. The good ones make me think & be creative, the bad ones also inspire me but the ugly ones scare me. There are lots of things you can do with kettlebells but just because you can, it does not mean you should. Different training tools have been designed to solve different problems. Dumbbells, Fixed Weights, Kettlebells, Clubbells, and Bulgarian Bags all have their uses but the exercises do and should vary. Some people can throw Kettlebells around like a juggling ball but for most people they will injure themselves or damage their floor.
I have been involved with Kettlebells for many years now and whether you do Sport Style or Hard Style (The two main methods) they each involve a handful of core exercises with supporting exercises for development.
At Moi Fa we largely follow the Hard Style method as that’s what I was taught and we have six essential exercises which then get modified to the ability and needs of the individuals. We also had a few general body weight and ground exercises to prepare and challenge the body.
The Hard-Style six essentials
- 2 Handed Swing
- Goblet Squat
- Turkish Get Up
