REAL QUESTIONS, REAL ANSWERS
Below is a compilation of 5 of the most frequently asked questions I hear about kettlebell lifting.
1. Can I lose weight with KETTLEBELL FITNESS training?
While there are countless ways to burn additional daily calories, kettlebell fitness training stands out as being incredibly practical, effective, as well as inexpensive. The caloric demand is exceptionally high for all long-duration, elevated-heart rate sets. A recent study at the University of Wisconsin found that kettlebell lifting can burn as much as 20 calories per minute, more than running or weight training. If your goal is weight loss, protocol selection can be fine tuned to deliver longer, calorically demanding sessions. Injury potential is low, because there is virtually no impact. Kettlebell lifting provides a unique and continuous challenge that keeps you coming back for more. The KEY TO SUCCESS with any weight loss approach is consistency.
2. I'm terribly out of shape, can I still use kettlebells to workout?
There's no better time to start. With the proper technique (you'll learn at our gym) and the right bell selection, any healthy person can gain proficiency enough to train with kettlebells. The right kettlebell protocol can provide unlimited intensity control, allowing just about everybody to get their proper of intensity. Gaining proficiency with technique, what the team KBNY prides itself on, gives the lifter exception control over his or her own training, allowing the body to adapt gradually, as you keep moving towards your goals.
3. How is our approach different?
I get this question at the start of many workshops and training sessions. Decades (some say centuries) ago, Eastern Europeans developed a way to build strength, endurance, power, speed, agility, and every other quality of a fit and health body without inflicting the typical joint-damage, and all in the same set. Timed sets for high repetitions while developing as little tension as possible generates remarkable changes in the human body.
4. Can I use kettlebell training to replace free weights?
You can adjust your approach to provides the results you seek, and can perform assist work with free weights or body weight if you choose, but it will not be necessary to do so. Kettlebell lifting alone can provide you with all the resistance work you need to thoroughly train your entire body in a few sets.
5. What if I need help with a specific sport or other physically demanding activity?
You came to the right place. Sport- and task-specific training can be enhanced with strength-endurance training with our state-of-the-art methodology.
