D e a t h 💀 by 💀 kettlebells
After a full leg day of back squats, hex deads, hamstring curls, leg extension, good mornings, and rdls, this kettlebell rack was lined up and CALLING my name.
As many reps til quads give out.
First round caught me up to me to me quick - legs cramped but I finished 🤣🦵🏽
4:00 minutes til death
Such a great training KB today at our studio @tribefitsf. We brought in @baseline_training to teach us how to take our fitness and movement to the next level with some seriously hard kettlebell work. Thanks to all of our members and trainers who came out to learn and be a part of this awesome seminar! #kettlebells
Injury does not need to stop your training. In fact quite the opposite. Exercise for REHAB is a great tool for getting people injury free and stronger so less likely for that injury to occur again.
However "Continuing to train SAFELY" is key
At KettleFit we like to work with the best practitioners such as @evolveosteopathy. Dan based in our Port Melbourne studio ensures our members can safely keep training and assist us in helping our members become stronger with less chance of that injury reoccurring.
So we need more awesome practitioners at our other locations North Fitzroy, Ascot Vale and Windsor.
Our cute well priced rooms are waiting for you. But only if you are the best in your field, love Kettlebells and always put people FIRST
💥Who said #golfers can’t be explosive? Client @chinesley_ killing these lateral hold plyo push ups. Great movement to develop upper body power triggering fast twitch muscle fibers and to improve shoulder stabilization.
How are you challenging your mind AND body? Think of it this way - you need stressors, things that push you to adapt, to change. They should be challenging, but fun, and not scary...! Some ideas: take a new workshop/class/seminar that takes you out of your comfort zone (the Mace workshop at the studio a few weeks ago fit the bill nicely!) OR, you can do really simple things every day like brushing your teeth with the other hand, or starting every rep you do in your kettlebell class with the arm you NEVER start with...the little things that are super easy add up to big neurological changes that we can ALL access every single day...give it some thought and see what you can change, even just a little and see what happens...

Holy Moly, weekends alone with 2 kids going through puberty can get looooong, and honestly the emotional roller coaster that comes with this age stresses me out! Anyone else with kids of ‘that age’ feel me on this one?
Even though I’m pretty well self-disciplined when it comes to eating and indulging, sometimes stress gets the better of me and by the end of the day I’m wanting all the vino and chocolate I can get my hands on because it’s such a quick and easy way to self-soothe and alleviate those feelings of stress.
Man, Stress can make us want to do some pretty unhelpful, illogical things sometimes, and fighting that inner struggle in front of the fridge at the end of the day is seriously demoralizing—especially when we’re trying so hard to eat well during the day!
But instead of letting those stressors build up, then set us up for a binge, we can let it out or even defuse it earlier in the day.
First, sweating it out can help a bunch—esp repetitive movements and lifting heavy but not crazy weights. #irontherapy is my go-to, and swings and jump roping are soothing movements.
Getting in the gym isn’t always an option, so taking a walk outdoors (even just 5 min) is another stress-taming option. •
So is starting the day with some gratitude journaling—esp on days you know will be tough. •
Putting your legs up the wall or doing handstand holds help up the feel-good factor, and we can totally do these at home. •
Box breathing is another do-anywhere calming technique: inhale for 4 seconds, hold the breath for 4 seconds, exhale for 4 sec, then hold breath for 4 sec. Repeat as many times as needed to achieve calming!
Most of all, and this is especially for you amazing mamas out there: take time for you. Do things you enjoy that make you feel calmer, more relaxed, more centered. Steal away to read, enjoy a coffee in peace, let the dishes sit at the end of the day.
Chances are, if you give yourself the gift of more calm here and there in your day, you’ll be way less likely to raid the kitchen at o-dark-thirty. Then if you do choose to have some vino and chocolate, it’ll be for enjoyment, not your nerves 😉
I beg of you, find your crew!! Find your people that GET you. That understand you. That can pick up when something is wrong without you having to say a word. Find the ones that love you unconditionally. The ones that show up on a Saturday afternoon to get hot and sweaty and nasty with you. Find those people and hold on to them tight. Cry with them. Laugh out loud. Listen to them if they need to vent or just throw heavy weights around in silence. Let them in. Share your weaknesses and your failures with them. Let them help you walk through whatever it is. Life is hard enough. Why face it alone?? #momswholift#bellfountainbootcamp#gateswoodvfd#mycrew#tireflips#kettlebells

HOW WEIGHT AFFECTS POSITIONING!
What’s up, Achievers?! @jasonlpak here and today we’re going over a little bit more of a nuanced concept. That’s the idea of “balance”. We talk a lot about “form” and “alignment” and “posture” on this page, and there’s plenty of information about these topics all over the internet.
What we don’t talk about often enough is the concept of balance. Your body is constantly calculating how to keep your body in better balance without you having to even think about it. Micro-changes in millimeters can make all the difference between you balancing and falling, or making a lift and missing a lift.
In this series of videos, you’ll see how Lauren stays nearly identical in form with two different weights. Her set-up is identical, her back stays flat at the bottom, she stands tall at the top, she maintains an appropriate hinge - everything is almost exactly the same.
The only thing that’s really different is her position at the top. What you’ll notice is that she leans back (not through her lower back, but her entire body) ever so slightly to accommodate the extra 20 or so pounds that she has out in front of her. If she didn’t accommodate for the extra weight and had the same amount of lean as the previous bell, then she’d almost certainly be pulled forward way out of position, or she’d manipulate her body in a way (keep her hips from locking out) to achieve better balance.
This explains slight differences in technique as weight gets heavier and heavier; however, form seemingly stays the same.
What this also shows us is that “form” and “alignment” and “posture” are all dependent upon how balanced your brain senses your body is. So, always ask yourself, “Do I feel balanced?”, “Do I feel stable and sturdy throughout the movement?”, “Is my weight along the middle of my foot?”. The more balanced you are, the greater potential for exhibiting better form and better strength and stability!
We hope this post helped you out! Until next time, Peace, Love, and Muscles ✌️💙💪!

Best exercise you’re (probably) not doing: Seated Kettlebell Press
This single arm press variation takes the legs outta the equation and requires you to depend lots more on shoulder and core strength. Yasssss. 💪🏽
I’m a safety girl (name the movie) so use two hands to to bring the bell up into the starting racked position. 🤗 I find a corkscrew rotation as I press up to be gentler on my shoulder and extending the opposite arm helps me maintain full body tension. be sure to avoid flaring your ribs by pulling your rib cage down as you press overhead. Stay tall throughout the movement. 👌🏽 Give ‘em a go and report back mkay? #havefungetstrong
KB full body combo 💥
heute mal eine etwas längere Combo... Ich sage euch... die habe ich als HIIT-Finisher genutzt und war am Ende völlig platt. (Jede Seite 5 mal, 30 Sekunden Pause, 5 Runden)... ich hätte mal die letzte Runde Filmen sollen😂😂😂...
