Feel Strength with Kettlebells by Dr. Paul
I first learned to be strong from a kettlebell. During myStrongFirst Kettlebell instructor certification in 2013 my understanding of strength evolved. Also, I got to meet and learn from one of my Strength Heroes, the Godfather of Kettlebells himself Pavel Tsatsouline.
I use kettlebells in rehab with my patients and in my own training. As a health care practitioner and strength coach I use kettlebells to teach people how to FEEL strength. In my own training I learned that strength comes from learning how to align the body and activate the right muscles.
Alignment helps create a good frame or structure, to drive with the right muscles to move weight effectively. To achieve this I learned how to use relaxed-tension. It is an art and skill to engage the right muscles and not over activate others.
I use the principles that I learned with kettlebells and apply it to my barbell training. I find that kettlebells are the perfect compliment to my barbell lifts, kettlebells allow me to get into positions and work through weakness that I can’t get to with a barbell.
Come join me in my Kettlebell class and learn how to FEEL Strength.
