Swing your way to fitness!

Kettlebells offer the ultimate in functional core training.  Nearly every drill recruits multiple muscle groups to work in unison.  The body is trained as a whole with a particluar emphasis focusing on the core and back muscles.  It's simplicity at it's finest.  Some of our favorite moves, the swing, the turkish get up, deck squats all use a single kettlebell.  Stay tuned for more kettlebell exercises coming your way!

Due to technical difficulties we were unable to capture any photos of group tonight.  As part of the warm up everyone worked on pullups push ups and ring holds.  Then we did 5 sets of 5 dumbbell thrusters.

Workout was:

5 rounds
row 250
10 jumping pull-ups
