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:

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.

Workout Breakdown: To help remove some confusion allow me to simplify this workout. You will see 2 main intervals and 2 movements per round.

First was 2 total minutes of Jerks (men= 2 Bell Hell & women= M1 right/M1 left) with the timer beeping every 5 seconds to Jerk either every 5 sec or with 5 sec lockout or 5 sec racked- depending on the round. Then rest 15 seconds (don't count that in the interval timing). Second is the 30 seconds of the Interim Movement and its 30 second rest directly after and prior to beginning the very next round. That is it.

Your Fat Blaster: R1) M2 Jerks or Push Press (men = 2 Bell Hell & women perform M1 right/M1 left, Set the timer to beep every 5 seconds and when it beeps perform your rep.) S15 Rest

Interim Round Movements: S30 Jump Squat after R1, Double Jerk Squats (fast) after R2, Overhead Squats- R/L after R3, VERY Heavy 2 Hand Swings after R4 S30 rest before next round.

R2) M2 Jerks or Push Press (men = 2 Bell Hell & women perform M1 right/M1 left, Set the timer to beep every 5 seconds and when it beeps lift and overhead lockout hold for 5 seconds and then when it beeps again rack for 5 seconds. Repeat like that for M2.
