If you are a Combat or MMA Athlete and you are not training with kettlebells, then you must either be living under a rock, or you are NOT serious about your training..PERIOD!
Alas, it’snever too late to add kettlebells to your strength and conditioning training and take your game to the next level. Whether it’s BJJ, Wrestling, Muay Thai, MMA or any other combat sport you have to be using Kettlebells.
I have added this valuable Kettlebell Basics program to help you with the basics of the using the kettlebell so that you get the best results out of this program. I approached Ajamu from KBell Training Academy, to help out with this aspect, as I received my Kettlebell Certification through him.
Ajamu Bernard is the founder of The Kettlebell Training Academy (est. 2004), an education and training company that conducts fitness industry certificate programs and consumer workshops across Canada. Ajamu is a coach and teacher whose workshops specializes in helping everyday people, personal trainers, athletes and MMA participants develop a better understanding of how to integrate the Kettlebell into their individual training style.
The training is broken into 6 parts and should be watched in order so that you progress in the proper way.
Before you start to use the kettlebell, it is important to learn the proper techniques and practice them. I have included some basic kettlebell videos to help you get started on using them in this program.
