Kettlebells are one of my preferred training tools. There are many styles and variations on the exercises that accompany them, choosing the right form can be challenging.
By combining my orthopedic examination along with movement systems such as SFMA, DNS and FMS, we can determine what depth, style or resistance level is right for you. If a movement feels wrong, awkward or painful, we have to decide whether it is a form fault, correctable body issue, or body issue which requires some accomodation to allow for pain free movement and gains.
Movements such as the swing and snatch have subtle ques and points to clean up form and get the most out of the motion. Swings have several tangents which can provide unique training effects with adjustments to the form. Taking a tour through these can also help point out weak or poorly coordinated aspects of the motion, which can lead to injury or a training plateau.
I have taken HKC training and integrate kettlebells into my rehabilitation and injury prevention programs. Whether screening form for faults or using kettlebell movements to help fully rehabilitate an injury, I can help you work toward training and rehabiliation goals.
I integrate many of the McGill concepts to allow my patients with resolving and previous lower back pain to utilize kettlebells in their workouts safely and effectively. Kettlebells are a great way, when used properly, to improved durability of a longstanding injury and maintain progress.
