As a water skier, I try to generate workouts that will transfer well to when I am on the water. One of my favorite exercise is the Kettlebell Swing. It generates strength and power all at the same time. Here are some of the benefits of the Swing:
- Turns a person into a Fat Burning Machine
- Improves Core Strength
- Builds a Strong Back
- Improve Breathing Patterns
- Produces Power
- Healthy on the Joints
- Forces the Glutes to turn on
- Strengthens the entire body
- Creates Body awareness
- Time Effecient
One of my favorite reasons why I love workout with Kettlebells is because it is very time efficient. Here is a video of one my routines. It is 3 sets of 10 Double Kettlebell Swings then right into 5 Front Squats (video only shows one set). If you are not familiar with the basics of the Swing I would not recommend you start with doubles. If you are interested in learning more about the swing please leave your comments. Enjoy
Next post I will be working a three basic core exercises that are simple and can be done any where.
Plus I will also be working on a little surprise for all the water skiers as we all enter into off season training.
