Warm Up Tips

  2. Begin by performing some light cardio exercises to increase your heart rate and warm up your muscles. This could include jogging in place, jumping jacks, or skipping rope.
  3. Perform some dynamic stretches to loosen up your muscles and increase your range of motion. This could include arm circles, leg swings, or torso twists.
  4. Next, practice the movement without any weight. This will help you get familiar with the motion and ensure proper form before adding weight.
  5. Once you feel comfortable with the movement, start with the kettlebell between your feet. Grab the handle with one hand and raise the kettlebell rapidly, allowing it to flip so that the ball of the kettlebell lands in the palm of your hand. Repeat this motion several times to warm up your grip and forearm muscles.

  4. As you raise the kettlebell, make sure to use your legs and hips to generate power, rather than relying solely on your arm.
  5. When flipping the kettlebell, maintain a tight grip on the handle to prevent it from slipping out of your hand.
  6. As you throw the kettlebell out in front of you, be mindful of your surroundings and make sure there is enough space for it to safely land.
  7. When catching the kettlebell, be ready to absorb the impact by slightly bending your knees and using your arm and shoulder muscles.
