In the Introduction To the 3-Hour-KB-Body:

It is very important for us to understand why we train. To identify our goals, and to make a plan to achieve those goals. It is also imperative that we identify what current factors may be prohibiting you from achieving those goals. 

We begin this lesson in this first introductory article.

No matter your reason for starting this program, in the end we all want the same thing: a workout routine that will enable us to find the very best of our bodies and ourselves. We want to train smart and have fun while training. We want to leave the training floor feeling more energized, clear headed, and happy then when we got on it.

This lecture will introduce you to our training approach, and help you identify your goals.

This might shock you, but exercise is not sport. Marathon running, swimming, playing tennis, basketball, and even surfing and martial arts like kickboxing are sports, but they are not a strength training and conditioning exercise routine.

This lecture will explain to you what exercise truly is, and how you can use it to reach every single goal you have, and then continue to reach even more goals.This lecture will help you create measurable and attainable goals. This lecture will explain everything that you need to succeed in this program and in your journey.This is a crucial lecture because most people have no clue what exercise is, or how to use it correctly.We also discuss training for specific goals, habits and reaching your results.

Choosing Correct Kettlebell Weight & Kettlebell Anatomy

The Kettlebell?

According to a 2010 American Council of Exercise study, twenty minutes of ket- tlebell exercise burned an average of 272 calories. That’s expending a phenome- nal 20.2 calories per minute, the equivalent of running a mile in six minutes.

It’s simple; kettlebell exercises burn more calories in less time compared to more traditional workout regimens. One of the reasons is that training with a kettlebell requires you to engage multiple muscle groups. Kettlebells also can be used in unique motions that are classified as ballistic, meaning they are of a higher intensity than other weight-lifting motions (known as grinds, which will be explained in chap- ter 2) and can produce the same effect on the body as sprinting, running, or jump- ing (but with far less impact on the body and joints—when executed correctly).


hErE’S A BoNUS: If you’re stuck in a crowded gym with lines to the machines, a kettlebell has no waiting time! Just pick it up and go. With kettlebell swings, you can achieve a similar cardio- respiratory effect and calorie burn as a three-mile run, with the added benefit of strength training.

Simple yes, but the kettlebell has an anatomy and you should know it.

In your workouts I will refer to the kettlebells anatomy and holding positions. 

To get to know them better, take a look at the attached article. 

Kettlebell Anatomy

Kettlebell grips are essential to your kettlebell development and understanding.

You can change around the muscle activation and the metabolic response just by changing the grip of your kettbelell.

There are many ways to make the same overhead press, lunge and squat far more challenging, by simply sweating your grips.

The Kettlebell Swing?

THE SWING

No pressure but the swing, specifically the double-handed swing, is a rite of passage in the kettlebell world. To fully understand kettlebells and get all of their unique biomechanical benefits this basic motion must be executed correctly. It is the foundation exercise and the basis for all the ballistics motions performed with a kettlebell. 

As mentioned, the swing is the basis of all kettlebell ballistic movements. It starts with a hinge
not a squat, which is a very important difference. In a hinge you bend at the hips first and then
the knees, and your hips will always go back more than your knees. Do not squat! You should
be swinging the kettlebell behind and above your knees, bending more at the hips with a slight
bend at the knees and a strong, straight back. You will be incorporating your posterior chain
and momentum to generate the power of the movement. As a result, the kettlebell should be
weightless when it comes up to shoulder height. Squeezing your glutes at the top of the motion
you should be standing straight and upright with hips forward and knees straight—NO arching
or overarching of the back—at the end of the motion. The kettlebell should swing between and
behind your legs and up to shoulder height in a non-stop, repetitive motion. 

Watch the video, and download the KB book, which will also breakdown the tradition swing for you!

Make sure you have this portion mastered before moving forward and onto the workouts.

Second to the kettlebell swing, the Turkish Get Up is perhaps the second most synonymous motion to kettlebells. Whats more is that it's an incredible total body exercise that can be incorporated to build strength, mobility and burn tons of calories (and fat) into any workout.

That is the reason the your TGU workout has such an emphasis on this motion. So, in order to get the most out of workout three you need to learn the correct form and progression of the TGU.

Watch the step-by-step video and follow along with the TGU motion.

Then, take a look at the attached book, which has three options for this move: regular, modified and advanced. 

Then, when you feel comfortable progress onto the workouts below!

The kettlebell Squat Swing is another 'extension' of the traditional swing, but as always with a very progressive twist.

The most difficult part of this movement is the transition from the swing (hinge) to the squat (knee bending).

be very patient with this move, and practice it with a lighter kettlebell or no weight at all, just bring your hands together and pretend that you are holding a kettlebell in your hands. 


Kettlebell Squat Swing Step-by-Step

  1. With both hands, pick up the kettlebell by the handle and sit back in a hinge, bending first and more deeply at the hips, then at the knees.
  2. From the hinged position, swing the kettlebell back and behind your knees.
  3. Swing the kettlebell back but as you begin to come up with the bell, do not straighten the legs, instead bend them right into a squat.
  4. There must be a very smooth transition between the hinge and the squat.
  5. Do not raise the kettlebell with your arms. Your arms and the kettlebell should feel weightless through the entire motion.
  6. Make sure your butt muscles are engaged by squeezing your glutes together tightly.
  7. Keep your heels on the ground.
  8.  At the top of the swing, remember to keep your arms straight, do not lift the kettlebell up with your arms.
  9. Continue without stopping back down into your hinge and repeat steps 1–4. Create a nonstop fluid motion of the swing, with the kettlebell going behind the knees and up to the knee bending squat and back.

The kettlebell Overhead Swing is actually just an extended swing. But, by extending the swing you can engage even more muscles, and get a new response from the body. However this swing is a challenge because, as you can see in our video lesson, you have a greater potential to 'mess' up the movement.

The key points here are to keep the gluten engaged at all times, and not to let yourself backward bend in any way. On the way down, do not let the kettlebell control you - you should be controlling the kettlebell the entire time - but never just lifting it with the arms. 

Kettlebell Overhead Swing Step-by-Step:

  1. With both hands, pick up the kettlebell by the handle and sit back in a hinge, bending first and more deeply at the hips, then at the knees.
  2. From the hinged position, swing the kettlebell back and behind your knees.
  3. Swing the kettlebell up to shoulder level with your arms straight as you thrust your hips forward and raise your torso back into the standing position.
  4. Do not raise the kettlebell with your arms. Your arms and the kettlebell should feel weightless through the entire motion.
  5. Make sure your butt muscles are engaged by squeezing your glutes together tightly.
  6.  At the top of the first part of the swing (the moment the kettlebell reaches shoulder level), remember to keep your arms straight, thrust your hips forward, straighten your knees, and then unlike in the traditional swing where you stop at the shoulder, continue to swing the kettlebell overhead, lining up the arms with the ears (and no further) as you rise to a standing position with the kettlebell overhead, keep your abs strong and your gluten engaged.
  7.  Do not bend back at the top of the motion. 
  8. Continue without stopping back down into your hinge and repeat steps 1–4. Create a nonstop fluid motion of the swing, with the kettlebell going behind the knees and back up to shoulder level and centered overhead.

The kettlebell clean is a fundamental kettlebell motion that often serves as a transition to other motions. When you clean the kettlebell, you are swinging the kettlebell back using the form of a kettlebell swing, but you will be breaking the motion the moment the kettlebell begins to come up from behind the legs. As the motion “breaks,” you are going to corkscrew or rotate the kettlebell up to a racked position at your chest.

Kettlebell Clean Step-by-Step

  1. Hold the kettlebell in a single-arm swing position. The thumb should be facing the body (facing down/back, not facing up).
  2. You will use a mini swing (the traditional swing form applies—remember to hinge!).
  3. Start the mini swing, but break the motion of the full swing and rotate the kettlebell around the forearm as you bring it up to racked position at your chest.
  4. At the top, the upper arm should be tight to the rib cage.
  5. The kettlebell should be resting firmly and easily between the upper arm, forearm, and shoulder against the body (not out in any way).
  6. The racked position of the bell should feel comfortable and natural; you should not be straining wrists or elbows, and the kettlebell should feel like it is resting on your forearm.
  7. With a slight lift at the elbow, the kettlebell will drop between the legs as the hips move back in a hinge and you continue to the next rep of your clean.
  8. Make sure to squeeze your glutes at the top of the clean, just like you would in your kettlebell swing.

Rest, Recovery, Flexibility & Mobility Workout
3 Lectures 53:46

Much of the training population is imbalanced. Not only do people neglect quality rest, but they don't understand the idea of active-rests and recovery. They persist in either strength training or cardio-endurance training to an over-kill state, only to take their rest days and sit in front out the coach and watch TV, sedentary and not mobile. Virtually everyone neglects mobility practices or specific joint-health exercises.

Many people train solely for the look.  While it's correct to aspire to look and feel your best, training primarily for weight-loss, and defined abs isn't the way to true longevity and health. 

Why you should incorporate this recovery routine into your training?  Too many are forced to quit training from chronic injuries and degraded health - by following a healthy strength and conditioning routine, and a joint mobility program you will create longevity along side your physical and esthetic goals.

If you feel like you want to do this program more then once a week - Go For It! Do this one as much as you'd like. But ideally, and especially for the first two months, please do this program at least once a week. 

What is Mobility and why is it important?

I'm sorry, did we say important? I meant to say essential! Mobility is crucial to longevity in any sport you do, any art, anything and everything. It is the quality with which you move in your day to day life. Feel locked up? That is a lack of mobility.

So, what is it?

Mobility = Strength + Flexibility

Simple right?

The key to these drills in our mobility session:

Don't over strain yourself, and go slow. Do not over arch the neck or over shrug the shoulders. BREATHE. 

Over time your neck, shoulders and hips should be opening up and moving with strength and ease. A new level of mobility. Unlocking the tight areas and slowly connecting the upper and lower areas of the body in one smooth kinetic chain. 

keep a mental note on areas and moves were you feel most restricted and locked up. Pay attention to the areas where you're tight, and slowly over time work through them.

You can do this 1x a week, or you can even break up the movements and take a few you love and do them in between your work day, just getting up from the chair and simply doing one or two motions from our Mobility workout above. 

Preview 43:25

Listen to your body, not your mind. Your mind is smart, and it will play tricks on you. Often your body can keep going and your mind says, “This is tough, this is hard . . . I want to stop.” or, "You're not working out enough, who cares if this program says 4x a week, you need more!"  

We all know these voices, we are all highly familiar with them. 

The moment you move past that thought and connect the mind and body together is the moment that you will master yourself. Your mind might say, “I am tired; I don’t want to work out right now; this couch feels sooooo good!”  or "You need to go back in and spend another hour aimlessly walking on a treadmill, who cares if your knees hurt and you've already been here for two hours."

Once you learn to cast those thoughts aside, you will stop having them. Instead of your mind speaking just for its instant gratification, it will begin to consult your body, and the two together will actually trigger a response that will have you counting down the hours between you and your next workout! 

During your workouts, you will learn to push forward instead of giving in and giving up— and to train with enough quality and form altho the body will get all it needs, never aimlessly just asking for more." his type of mental and physical fortitude will translate into every single corner of your life. Soon you will see yourself as “that person,” that girl who never gives up and never gives in and instead achieves. 

Overtraining just as not training at all is an epidemic - and you might fight it. The best way to do that is to follow a program and trust it, and your self. 

Overtraining Discussion
06:50

Most people don’t associate resting with muscle growth and definition. After all, you only grow muscle and burn fat when you are working out, right? Wrong!

The truth is your body doesn’t assimilate new muscle while you are working out. It’s actually the exact opposite. It breaks down muscle tissue, then when you rest and refuel properly, your body will build new tissue in its place.

GENERAL REST:

One to two full rest days are great, and they can be back-to-back or spaced out through the week. Due to the nature of these workouts, and their overall length, it's okay to do them back to back or simply place your rest days into your personal schedule. There is a Program Design section below, and you will find the variation of workout-recovery-full rest days that work best for you.


IF YOU FEEL OVER TRAINED:

Take a week off if you train every single day, feel exhausted, and are not sleeping well. After a week off, go back to your workout calendar (the program e have for you below), but do so with care. Don't rush, don't under eat or eat poor quality food, get good sleep and maintain form above everything else.

Symptoms of Overtraining (it is safe to say that if you have 3-4 of these you should take a week off)

The following factors can be signs of overtraining:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Excessive hunger
  • Lack of appetite 
  • Mood swings and irritability
  • Daily exhaustion
  • Overuse injuries
  • Structural acute injuries
  • Low of sex drive
  • Elevated RHR (Resting Heart Rate)
  • Constant colds and sickness (weak immune system)

In her words, “You don’t need to be born into privilege, so long as you are born into support and love (and a bit of tough love too).”

Dasha is available for seminars, appearances and any other fitness, self-help and martial arts related topics. Dasha takes private lessons on a limited case-by-case, as she involves herself in all aspects of the Kettlebell Kickboxing™ world, clients and projects are kept to a minimum (quality over quantity).
