Many women are intimidated by kettlebells and other free weights. I try to teach my personal training clients the value of dumbbell, barbell and kettlebell training early on. There is nothing to fear as these tools are some of the most effective strength and conditioning devices available. Core training is unavoidable with the use of kettlebells, dumbbells and barbells.
Today, Kimberly, who is participating in her 2nd fitness bootcamp class, as well as personal training with me now, conducted a killer kettlebell workout. She ran through my circuit of squat to overhead press, (double and single arm), the swing, windmill, windshield wipers, renegade rows with pushup, upright row to squat thrust and sumo deadlift. Kettlebell training is very technical and it takes practice and patience to master the movements. Driving on the heels and firing the glutes forward are the key components of most kettlebelll techniques.
