Raising The Dead is an AMRAP-style kettlebell challenge where each exercise has the kettlebell start in the dead position for every rep. Lasting only 10 days with 6 timed rounds per day, you'll test your endurance and strength as the allotted time increases each day. This challenge requires only one kettlebell and features a couple of options for scoring and progressing.
What if there was a way you could undergo a 90 day body transformation naturally without starving yourself? Or resorting to drinking gross shakes that taste like cardboard to see results? People spend way too much money on nasty tasting shakes and fitness equipment that will collect dust or even break. That's why I've made it my mission to help men get into better shape using kettlebells and proper nutrition. Making healthy food choices and getting the most out of exercising is the best way to lose weight quickly!
It was actually my wife who suggested I attempt another challenge to help me get out of this funk. Honestly, my eating habits have been terrible lately. So giving me something to focus on physically is probably just want I need. It took me a few days to brainstorm an appropriate challenge. One that isn't too difficult, nor dependent on a diet but more so on mental toughness. Thus I came up with the idea of doing 100 kettlebell swings a day for the duration of lockdown.
I had a lot going on personally during this challenge. There's never really an opportunity where there's a lull in my life for 30 days. Holidays, birthdays, and other special occasions are a common occurrence and I knew that they would factor in during this time. It doesn't make sense to wait for the best opportunity and say, "Hey, this month looks pretty clear on the schedule." Even if that's true, something stressful is bound to happen. When it does, it's easy to give yourself an excuse to be bad and order or dine out.
Before I came up with Game of Bells: Swinging to 300, I created another method to do 300 kettlebell swings in a workout session. It doesn't involve downsizing or switching weights. It should be done with whatever current kettlebell weight you're comfortable with. For myself, that weight is 35 lbs.
If you're like me and want to lose weight quickly by working out with kettlebells, you need to check out the video in this post. The kettlebell exercises featured aren't overly complex but they will challenge you! It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or an experienced kettlebell user, this workout by Chandler Marchman is great for all fitness levels.
When I first did my research over a year ago for my own weight loss plan, it was this question that I desperately wanted to answer the most. If you want to lose weight with kettlebells, you have to have realistic expectations. This probably means that a lifestyle change is in order. No more eating junk food or gorging yourself on a whim. That doesn't mean you can't ever indulge in fatty foods, but it should be a rare and infrequent occurrence.
