Lorna Kleidman Discusses the Benefits of Kettlebell Training for Powerlifters

Bohemia, NY (PRWEB) March 18, 2013

On March 18, kettlebell expert Lorna Kleidman comments on an article posted on Mike Mahler’s Aggressive Strength website. Author Jack Reape discusses the benefits of kettlebell training, saying that the typical powerlifter usually performs the most basic of exercises and doesn’t offer himself enough variety in his routine. Reape asserts that while kettlebells are not the “sole answer” to every lifter's weakness, they're “an absolute must” for the average powerlifter.

Kettlebells offer dynamic training potential in the way their shape and weight affects “center of gravity, gripability, [and] planes of possible movement,” says Reape, adding that any tool that will interact with your muscles in a different way “has a great potential to make an improvement in your training.” Reape recommends mixing up your routine by substituting kettlebell exercises for dumbbells for an effective change of pace.

The article says kettlebells can be extremely effective not just for “dynamic/explosive” work, but also for general physical preparedness (GPP) and the prehabilitation and rehabilitation of injuries. For GPP exercises, Reape recommends doing farmers walks while holding kettlebells. The fatter and smoother the handle is, the harder your hand has to work to hold onto the kettlebell. To improve the glutes and hamstrings, he suggests using either a single or double kettlebell swing. For deadlifts, Reape says, “The front squat with [kettlebells] is great for building the conventional pull start off the floor. I have only done close stance [kettlebell] cleans a few times but some [narrow-stance deadlifters] swear by this movement.”

Lorna Kliedman, founder of the dynamic KettleX training program, responds to the kettlebell's potential as an aid to lifters, saying, “This is no fad – the benefits are real, and kettlebells are appearing in new venues every day. Kettlebell exercises are not only easy and fun to do, but highly effective in creating long, lean bodies. I'm glad to see more and more serious athletes and fitness enthusiasts discovering the benefits of kettlebell training, which are seemingly endless since the kettlebell can be used in so many different types of movements.”

Lorna Kleidman is a three-time World Champion and World Record holder in kettlebell sport and the most decorated kettlebell athlete in the country. She developed the innovative methods used in KettleX as a way to bring the benefits of the bells to everyone in an easy-to-use, comprehensive and fun format. Lorna has been teaching individuals and group classes for the past six years.
