February is here.
You’ve survived January, you’ve gotten through the post Xmas lull and are back into full scale awesome mode.
Well, that’s just as well because look at what we’ve got lined up for you in the next couple of months:
National Kettlebell Lifting Championships February 9th & 10th, Tramore, Waterford. Wild Geese Kettlebell Club will once again be on the platform, hopefully qualifying for the Irish National Squad.
Bodyweight Training Workshop February 23rd, Galway Kettlebells
This workshop has proven very popular since I launched it last year. The workshop will cover (but not limited to):
Speed, Power, Agility, Explosiveness and not a weight in sight…
-Push Up variations to work every aspect of the body -Squat variations -Unilateral training -Martial Arts strength training secrets -Integrated core training -Total body conditioners -Agility -Bodyweight for explosive power -Mobility
And some feedback: “Really enjoyed the Seminar today 🙂 Its really nice to do the the basics like the squat and push up with time to break down and run through all the actual mechanics in good detail .. and also real cool to learn the more difficult variations all them!!!! personal il be taking home alot of the core training stuff , il play with that for a while .. i thought 6 hours would be alot but the time flew .. anyway was a good day out and worth dragging my arse out of bed of a sunday morning for..” – Don Wheelan“I would highly recommend the bodyweight workshop with Dave Hedges/ at Wildgeese. It really highlighted how much I still have to work on in terms of mobility and agility, and will focus my training on what I need to do, not what I like to do! Many people train to feel better with little focus on results and progression. This workshop really brought it home to me about how to focus more on these two areas, and doing the right things in the right way, rather than quickly or that make me look good when Im training!” – name withheldPlaces are strictly limited. Contact myself on firstname.lastname@example.org or our host Sarah Smith on email@example.com Cost for the day is €50. Address: Galway Kettlebells, Unit 31A, Sean Mulvoy Business Park, Sean Mulvoy Road, Galway, Ireland.
Kettlebell Technique Workshop Crossfit Causeway, March 2nd
Robin Taggart, owner of Crossfit Causeway has invited me up to his gym to go over proper Kettlebell Technique.
The Kettlebell swing – fire optional
The day will focus on the most appropriate kettlebell specific lifts for general conditioning, those being the Swing, Clean and Snatch. Most exercises translate from one tool to another with minimal changes, but these lifts are specific to the kettle and therefore require specific technique to get the most out of them. Assuming we have the time we will also look at several double kettlebell movements as well as take a Q&A on incorporating Kettlebell Lifts into a wider training program. Address: Crossfit Causeway, Units F4 & F5, Sperrin Business Park, Ballycastle Road Coleraine, County Londonderry, BT52 2DH Cost: €50 / £40 Click Here to book Or contact Robin Taggart (host) on: Mobile: 07776181832 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am also in the process of confirming dates to return to Tramore to teach the Rapid Response workshop. And i may set a date for a workshop closer to home…. So get in touch and book your places
