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! :)

A couple weeks ago I blogged about the special reminder card and refrigerator magnet I made for my clients that I call "168 Lines". Here's the post: http://www.bobgarontraining.com/2011/01/remember-what-this-is.html Remember there are 168 hours in a week, the red lines on the card symbolize the average amount of time people spend exercising and black lines symbolize all other hours. Most weeks the black lines overwhelm the chart. Here's to more red lines!

Time to dial in your eating habits to a lifestyle, the rest of your life, a lifestyle that you are healthy NO MATTER WHAT OR WHO OR WHEN. No more excuses of being tired, weather, injured, this or that or the other.  There is always something you CAN do to push you further toward that goal- your goal.

There are so many distractions out there... so many things to keep us busy. We are bombarded with information and distractions in our lives. I have an Android phone and I love having a smart phone and my computer, but there's so much on these things and in our lives to overwhelm us... so much to become obstacles.

Let's focus back our BIG picture goals. Let's redirect back what really makes us tick and tock. What is it? What drives you? On the flipside what's your prison cell? What is it that keeps you from really pushing forward. What's holding you from being set free? What distracts and binds you to complacency?

Inside all of us is a shell. That's our prison cell. Break out NOW!
