As I mentioned in the previous email, I came up with this weird new kettlebell exercise after a couple beers…
Now I wasn’t completely drunk. I would never do this exercise completely drunk. It’d be dangerous and stupid. You’ll see why.
But a few beers sometimes gets the creative juices flowing and because I have a Kettlebell just lying around, when I’m feeling playful I pick it up and mess around.
Even 100% sober, this exercise takes concentration and requires co-ordination, balance, agility, strength and power and will benefit those qualities.
Check it out, then read on for some further comments after the vid:
When you’re first trying the Whirling Dervish, start with a lighter KB and think of it as skill practice. Learn the technique and master the movement before trying to push it. Proper form is key!
This new kettlebell exercise is something I’ve come up with that gives you a lot of benefits that you don’t get from most other exercises.
It harnesses the unique properties of the kettlebell in that you can swing it to and generate a lot of momentum.
You can also do this with a dumbbell but it’s a lot better with a kettlebell.
There are a lot of other benefits to this new kettlebell exercise in addition to those mentioned in the video: improved footwork, co-ordination.
And the last benefit I did mention in the video is huge – prevention of knee ligament injuries that often happen in sports like soccer, basketball and football when you’re running and changing directions at high speed.
Of course, this exercise helps MMA fighters and martial artists with power generation for strikes and throws. But if you follow this blog, you know that already…
But truly I don’t care what other people think of me when I’m in the gym – just get the job done, know you’re more “advanced” than most of the monkeys surrounding you and smile to yourself when you see them grunting on the Leg extension machine.The only thing you’ve got to worry about is looking like a weirdo in the gym! LOL
