Results And Thoughts On Completing The RTD Kettlebell Challenge

There were over 80 people on Facebook who had said they would be participating as a group for the Raising The Dead Kettlebell Challenge. However, when the time came, approximately 10 or so actually followed through. It's disappointing to have spent so much time creating this challenge but I'm very grateful for those who did join. The feedback, motivation, and encouragement to complete the full 10 days made it all worth it.

However, in order to get the most benefits from the clean, it's important to practice proper technique.

The 2021 Tokyo Olympics has seen the addition of 5 new sports to its games. These include karate, baseball/softball, surfing, skateboarding, and sport climbing. While I won't argue the legitimacy of adding these sports to the Olympics, I am upset about the exclusion of another. Of course, I'm talking about Kettlebell Sport.

Kettlebell Core Strengthening Exercises For Seniors

Strengthening your core has many benefits for your overall health and well-being. It is made up of many groups of muscles centered around the torso. This includes abs, lower back, pelvis, and hips.

A Sustainable Approach To 300 Kettlebell Swings Every Day Over Many Days

Many fitness experts agree that performing 300 kettlebell swings a day is an excellent way to lose weight fast. There are suggestions on how you should break the reps up as well as 300 swing challenges. Almost no one suggests doing them all in one go. Sure, that's possible but not realistic for the average person to do day after day. I've found the best way is to do them in one workout session in intervals.
