If you are serious about obtaining a super strong and super fit body then I have included my kettlebell top 5 list here for you to get to where you want to go. Take a minute to read over this following list of 5 kettlebell strength lifts that you can use to achieve your own level of physical dominance!
Kettlebell Lifts For Strength!
1. Kettlebell Swings: The kettlebell swing is the kettlebell lift of the “pulling nature” and involves the superior development of your lower back, hamstrings, hips, glutes, abs, and shoulders. This is done by you having to swing the kettlebell from between you legs up to at least chest level to start. This is the base lift that you can perform and is the staple of all kettlebell lifts. This is what superior strength training is all about.
2. Kettlebell Jerks: Kettlebell jerks are a great pushing oriented lift that you can perform with the kettlebell that requires an explosive component within the movement to pull it off. This lift is great for generating the vertical force you need in order to explosively push the kettlebell overhead. This is great for the development of your hips, core, and shoulder stability.
3. Kettlebell Snatches: Kettlebell snatches are known as the Czar of all kettlebell lifts. This is an explosive “pulling” movement that is great for developing speed, power, hip strength, core strength, and shoulder stability. This lift is very intense and will prep you physically to obtain the explosiveness of a top notch warrior and athlete. If you need to hit something hard or run somewhere fast then this lift is for you!
4. The Get Up or Turkish Get Up: The get up or turkish get up is a very unique looking lift that involves you having to get up off of the ground with the kettlebell and return all while keeping the kettlebell above your head throughout the entire lift. This lift is great for developing complete body strength, shoulder stability, balance, and focus. If you need to be in shape to lift heavy objects in tough environments such as pulling an old lady out of a burning building, throwing a offensive tackle off of you, or wrangling in a bull during a rodeo then this is a great lift for you. Even if you don’t do all of these things the lift is still great for you!
5. Kettlebell Thrusters: Kettlebell thrusters are just hard, period! This lift basically involves you cleaning and racking the bell at your chest only to perform a front squat and then press it overhead. This squatting and pressing is great for getting you physically ready for just about any task that requires the use of your hips and legs. Thrusters translate well over into most all athletic related tasks and will have your body in tip top shape after enough practice.
