The Kettle Bell Clinic is a six-hour course that is intended to introduce, instruct, and educate attendees on proper use of the kettlebell. Lecture portions of the course include history and origins of the kettlebell, review of anatomy and physiology as applied to kettlebells, and guidelines for teaching a motor skill. Class planning, including structure, progressions, and modifications, are also covered.
Practical portions of the course will include the fundamentals of a dead lift, high pull, and a squat before moving onto different types of swings, progressions of presses, snatches, windmills and Turkish getups; circuit composition is also practiced. There will be time for each individual to compose a brief (6-10 min) class circuit that they will be required to teach during the final hour of the class. Participants will leave with skills that will help design a kettlebell program of their own.
