Finished off with a 5 minute snatch test as a warm up for the grading. 100 reps required to pass the top level grading for each weight. You can go past that number if you want.



As always, good work from everyone. Well done to Rees and Sam for completing their first session. Special mention for Janice for choosing to use a heavier KB in the Snatch test.

Classes Start in Whitchurch

Kettlebell Club classes have now started on Wednesdays 7-8pm in the Parish Hall, Whitchurch. Your first session is free.

"Despite being nothing more than an iron ball with a fixed handle, the kettlebell has stood the test of time as its history can be traced back as far as the ancient Greeks.

The kettlebell provides the combined benefits of cardio and weight training in one devastatingly effective fitness tool and, because the nature of the kettlebell constantly forces you to control both your body and the bell, it provides a unique training effect that no other single exercise from comes close to duplicating.

Exercising with a kettlebell provides a very different, challenging but enjoyable, fat burning and stress busting workout that results in a healthy mind and lean body, which is as strong as it looks and as robust as it is graceful.

The kettlebell develops not only a powerful, healthy heart that supplies a coordinated team of strong yet flexible muscles imbued with functional strength-endurance and speed, particularly in the legs, hips and back muscles, but also agility and real core stability. "
