Cliff notes for basic kettlebell drills.
The Kettlebell Deadlift is the first exercise you should learn to master before doing anything else with Kettlebells! # Here's a video showing you several common mistakes with the Deadlifts versus the proper way to set up and move your body during a Kettlebell Deadlift. # Hope you find this helpful! Deadlifts Rock! Get good at them! It will help everything! # ENJOY! #kettlebells #kettlebellbasics #kettlebellworkouts #laurenbrooksfitness #laurensplayground #fitness #deadlifts #saturdaymotivation
So this was kind of painful (mentally) to film and it took some focus to emulate very common mistakes of a Kettlebell Swing. I can spend an entire day showing the various incorrect ways. But this is just a quick example. If you're doing any of these, just take note and see if you can back track and relearn the proper pattern. I always recommend mastering the Kettlebell Deadlift before attempting a swing. # We can all improve our swing. In this video you'll see 2 very incorrect swings and then you'll see two angles of a proper swing. #kettlebellswings #laurenbrooksfitness #thursdaymotivation #fitforlife #kettlebells #trainwithapurpose
SINGLE LEG DEADLIFT
Before I head out to my MELT Instructor training I felt the need to go over the Single Leg Deadlift. I admit it has a bad rap at times. When done incorrectly with load that you're not ready for, it's one of the easiest lifts to hurt yourself with. So I get it! But when done beautifully, it's the best butt lifter, butt strengthener and butt tightener in the entire arsenal of lifts IMO. # The beauty of this lift is you can still feel the glute power without bells. Practice this lift with zero bells first. Get the movement pattern down! Then begin to hold the bottom deep hinge position for 5-10 seconds each reps. Even without bells you'll feel your lovely rear chime in! # This is one of the exercise I'll be getting very deep in to during my upcoming workshop. We also cover this quite extensively in Lauren's Playground classes. # I've gotten the most uncoordinated students to be able to master this wonderful lift. Give it a try with your body weight even holding on to something. Or try and take this lovely lift to a deeper level #sundayfunday #laurensplayground #laurenbrooksfitness #kettlebellworkouts #kettlebells #fitness #buttbuilder #glutes
The infamous Kettlebell Clean. I've demonstrated painfully some of the most common mistakes you'll see for this somewhat technical exercise. 😫 # You'll see the proper clean broken down a few times 😬😊 which should be able to help guide you very well! # If any of the incorrect cleans look familiar to you, really slow it down and begin with finding the rack position. The place where the bell ends up. Get comfortable with it. Walk around with the bell. You should be able to wiggle your fingers and feel comfortable. I always recommend starting from the top and working backwards. # For more detailed instruction check out my YouTube page kbellqueen and join Lauren's Playground online gym. Off to MELT day 2 I go! #happymonday #kettlebells #kettlebellclean #laurenbrooksfitness #laurensplayground
