Here’s another training session, about a week out from my first time competing at the 2010 Arnold Classic, and my first time participating in a kettlebell sport competition.
After, reviewing this clip, I found a few tweaks that would help me get more reps, be more efficient in my movement, and reduce muscle fatigue.
One of the first things I worked on, after filming this, was closing the distance between me and the bells, as I went into the swing portion of the lift.
I remember Andrew Durniat mentioning this small tweak, last fall at Mike Mahler’s “Age of Quarrel” workshop.
When giving the bells a small “bump,” as you come out of the rack and go into the swing, let you upper body slightly fall away from the descending bells.
Dude! You have no idea how much this helps get your numbers up, preserves your grip, and reduces the chance of the bells pulling you forward. There’s nothing more detrimental to your reps, sets, and long cyle training, than trying to fight the bells for body control.
The name of the game is “Efficiency” & “Economy of Movement.”
I highly suggest anyone looking to discover some of the best technique for achieving more efficient lifts, getting better numbers, gaining more strength, mass, power, or simply learning from the best, in terms of kettlebell training, joint mobility, advanced bodyweight training, indian club training, and more,
you owe it to yourself, and/or your clients to grab a copy of the “Age of Quarrel” DVD set from http://strengthbymahler.com. It is totally worth it, and will pay your training game back with big dividends.
