Mountain Climbers

Proper Mountain Climbers Technique & Progressions

I'm sure you've done them a hundred times before, but we are always able to improve upon ourselves. When we do, we become better, stronger, and build more confidence in our abilities. I personally love Mountain Climbers because they are so great for a shoulders, core, & cardio workout all wrapped into one and it's a bodyweight exercise that you can do anywhere. Give them a shot and modify where needed.

If you start at the beginner level keep progressing, even if it's for a couple reps before returning to your previous mod for the rest, each workout that you have Mountain Climbers in it. You will get stronger the more you try to push yourself farther than you went yesterday.

Not All Kettlebells Are Created Equal...

These are the exact Kettlebells that we use at Synergy Kettlebell Training and we use them because Professional Grade Kettlebells are the best you can train with. Kettlebells are a tool for your fitness and I recommend always working with the best.

They are exactly what you'll need to get the most out of your training whether your focus is on sport or fitness. The shape of the bell allows extended, high rep sets with as much comfort as possible.

The bell handle and body ergonomically conforms to the contours of the hand, wrist, and forearm. This is an important aspect of the top lifts (Jerk, Snatch, Long Cycle).

Personally, I don't use anything else for my own training and have seen my progress quickened directly because of using Pro-Grades.

Pyramid Of Pain Kettlebell Workout: Steve Dawson

Last weekend I had the extreme pleasure of training one of the UK's finest certified kettlebell teachers when he was visiting the U.S. When I first spoke with Steve Dawson about what he was wanting to do when he was here he told me that he is a very well conditioned guy and that I could choose anything I wanted. I smiled and told him that we'd be putting his conditioning to a test.... and we definitely did. Check out the original "Pyramid Of Pain" kettlebell workout and give it a shot yourself.
