A friend of mine over in Scotland just posted a link on his facebook page.
Normally Rannoch is pretty reliable, his Simple Strength site reflects his attitude to life and training. So when he posts a link to a vid clip you know it’s going to be worth a look.
This one was a corker!
All he said is “Watch at 2:19…this is priceless…” So for your entertainment I’m including the vid below.
But before you watch it, I need you to remember one thing….Question Everything.
My son is just learning to talk and already i’m dreading the day he starts with the “Why is the?”, “But, Why?”, “why?”
You know the ones, endless questions of why this and why that. But in reality it’s not such a bad thing. After all if you watch the clip without a question in your mind, you’ll certainly be answering some down at the physio clinic. The trainer in the clip, I’ve been reliably informed is the coach on TV’s the Biggest Looser. Have a look and as Rannoch says, check out 2:19
Did you see it? That last “special move” I mean c’mon. If ever there was an injury waiting to happen, thats it right there.
If you’re interested in learning how to perform the Kettlebell Swing right, please ignore this video and instead come along to a qualified kettlebell coach. I’ll be running a Level 1 Kettlebell workshop at the Dublin HQ on March 7th.
All proceeds going to charity, so book now by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Level 1 covers the Swing, Squat and Press, all with a single bell. And by the end of it you’ll be moving safer and more effectively than the dipstick in the clip.
Or If you’re in Scotland, www.simplestrength.com is the place to go.
In the meantime here’s a simple kettlebell workout for those of you not tempted by the hollywood spine trasher:
Perform as a complex (ie do all reps of each drill without putting the bell down) 1 – 1 Hand Swing x 10 2 – Clean / Front Squat / Press x 10 3 – Reverse Lunge x 10
Immediately repeat in the other hand To as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes.
‘cos I said so, now get on with it….
