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
  • Press
  • Clean
  • Snatch
  • Turkish Get Up

Thanks for the post Paul, have tried a number of gyms etc… Over the years, but I found kettlebells to be the most effective for my body type. I think it makes a really effective cross disciple fitness and a foundation core strength for developing other sports/types of exercise class. Plus being motivated by a group of like minded individuals in a safe instructor led environment is really motivational

I’ve never really been one for going to the gym, always get bored doing the same exercises, which is why I’ve found your kettlebell classes so beneficial! Dynamic movement, a variety of drills, and a nice balance of instructor led sessions with the space to individually push yourself as well. The group supoort is great as well, motivating each other, and all in all a really friendly gang of like-minded individuals. I’ve also found kettlebells great for providing a core strength base for the other martial art classes.
