How Often Should I Train Kettlebells?

Kettlebell WorkoutPeople always ask me, and we've been discussing this A LOT lately at Synergy Kettlebell Training, how often it is recommended to come- to exercise- each week for good results. What we HIGHLY recommend is, IF you're schedule allows, to come 3-4 days a week and you will reap the full benefit. 2 days on and 1 off, and no more than 2 days off in a row or you can possibly regress ever so slightly.

If your schedule doesn't allow that then definitely come as often as you can, but just no more than 2 days in a row and no more than 2 days off in a row. Ex. If you can only come Monday, Wed, & Friday that will be 1 day on and 1 day off with only 2 days off (the weekend) before you come back again on Monday. That's perfectly fine.

Remember that what I have seen as one of the BEST schedules is 2 days on and 1 off with no more than 2 days off in a row. What I personally do is this: Mondays & Tuesdays are always Kettlebell days, Wednesdays are yoga and/or cardio days, Thursdays & Fridays are always Kettlebell days, and weekends are misc days where I go on walks, bike rides, or whatever.

Your recovery is when you see results. What you do in the gym is preparing your body for that recovery. When you recover you are dropping fat, getting stronger, healing micro-trauma, etc. So it is not recommended to keep compounding workout on top of workout on top of workout for better results. You want to be effective and efficient in each one and set your body up for good recovery. Enjoy your recovery days too!

Do that each and every week- rain or shine, come hell or high water- and you will experience amazing results the rest of your life. Sound good? Good! :)


Also after every workouts and before you go to bed every night make sure you spray on your Magnesium Oil for faster recovery and energy levels. Here's what I personally use and have seen the best results:

Why Take Magnesium Oil? It directly helps support hormone production, increase energy, reduce muscle soreness, lose stomach fat, helps you sleep better at night, and ramp up heart health! Transdermal is the best. Get Your Magnesium Oil HERE.

New Synergy Kettlebell Training Poll

Put Out The Feelers Poll: 2 proposed new Kettlebell Kamp class times. These are based upon your recent mentionings either directly to me or down the grapevine.

1) 6am or 7am class. Pick your fav, but only one. The most requested will be scheduled.

2) 7pm class. Quite a few people have mentioned they would like this.

Should one or both of these classes become scheduled they will be initially as a test launch basis. This means most likely 2-3 times a week for the first month and then more days added from there. Ex. Mon, Wed, Fridays at first before offering more days.

2 Further Thoughts cause I'd like to make a decision soon...

Thought 1: I'd like to move to evening class times of 5, 6, & 7pm. Flex Training will stay as it currently is with you having open gym hours 4:30-7pm, but should we begin a 7pm class the Flex Training will be extended until 8pm.

Thought 2: If we do a early morning class or later class I will need some dedication to those classes so that we're not having a ghost town. Know what I mean? To help with that here's what I'm gonna do. When we schedule those classes if the demand is there I'll give you all a REALLY good referral bonus to help me drive in new biz into those classes. You help me and I'll help you. That's what being a family is all about. :) Fair Enough?
