Double Trouble!

Double Kettlebell Training.

Here is a way to get double the results in half the time.  Throw another kettlebell into the equation!

Training with Mike Mahler

Mike Mahler and I in London

I have just come back from London where I attended a seminar given by Mike Mahler.  Mike Mahler is “the man” when it comes to double kettlebell training. Mike has been a strength trainer and kettlebell instructor for over nine years and has delivered workshops all over the US and overseas. His current focus is on the field of hormone optimization via nutrition, training, and lifestyle.  Mike is well known as one of the leading experts on effective kettlebell training for size, strength, fat loss and conditioning.

Learn from the best to be the best!

Just a quick side note before I carry on talking about kettlebells;  if you have a passion in life, go and learn from the best in the trade or try and work alongside these people.  There are seminars given on anything and everything from business to gardening to weight training.  If you follow a writer, trainer, etc and they are doing a seminar or workshop, go and do it.  The price you pay is paid back a million times just from the energy you get from practising what you love with a person you admire or respect and being in the company of people who share your passion and views.  In the last couple of years I have spent a lot of money travelling all over Europe to train with who I consider to be the best in the game.  I have trained and learned from Pavel Tsatsouline who is single handedly responsible for making kettlebell training famous worldwide, Jeff Neupert, Tracy and Mark Reifkind and last but not least Mike Mahler.  These people are the top of the kettlebell food chain and training with them has taken my technique, experience and training skills to another level; all of this passes over to the results seen by my clients.  Just to recap, don’t think about it, just do it!  If you can’t afford it then go for the next best thing, find the best in your area and go and train with them.

Back to Double Trouble!

Swinging two kettlebells in Mallorca

If you want to see double the results in half the time, all you have to do is train with two kettlebells instead of one.  Seems simple, but it isn’t.  For a start you are immediately doubling the weight you are handling.  Now you have two cannonballs pulling at you that you have to control.  This is what makes it so effective!  Once you start to dominate the bells you will reap the benefits.  A stronger, more resilient body with less fat and more muscle in all the right places.  Stronger core and back, more power, speed and agility for the sport you practice; the benefits are endless!  There is a but, and the but is that you need to progress at a logical pace.  You can’t just come along and grab two kettlebells and start training.  You need to learn the basic moves; swing, clean and press and snatch with one kettlebell before you start with two.  This doesn’t take long and the benefits from training with one kettlebell are probably way more effective than any other type of training you have tried before.  Kettlebell training is a no-frills-no-nonsense system.  You have to put in a little hard work to get really incredible results.

Back pain

A lot of back pain comes from weak back muscles.  The muscles in your back are muscles that are very hard to work without doing some form of weight training.  Most forms of weight training are boring and laborious whereas anyone can pick up a kettlebell and swing it for 5 minutes.  The basic kettlebell swing works almost every muscle in your body and concentrates on the “posterior chain” which is made up of all the muscles running down the back of your body.  Many people have seen enormous improvements in posture and back pains by just performing the kettlebell swing a couple of times a week; it is also one of the fastest ways of curing scoliosis.
Come and experience the amazing results described above.  I have trained under the leading kettlebell experts in the world and can pass all of this knowledge and technique on to you.  For more information check out my MKB Level 3 workshop where I will teach you how to train with double kettlebells and how juice them so you get the greatest benefits and results in the minimum amount of time!
