What is kettlebell training all about? This may help!
Ok i have been posting articles / programmes to the people who do and know about kettlebell training, but here is one for the people who want to know more about what we do at kettlebellsireland!
A kettlebell is a handheld weight, which looks like a bowling ball with a handle attached. They come in different weights, from 4kg's - upwards. You will be given a weight which suits your strength/level, but this will change as you progress.
At kettlebellsireland classes, your first session is usually an induction, where the focus is on saftey, technique and less on the workout. The workout comes soon enough. We do movements that target the full body, lifting, pushing, pulling, pressing, swinging as well as others. Your trainers will always be watching and advising during your training sessions. You also get to train with a group of like minded people where there is serious training, coupled with fun.
