So are you interested in learning how you can achieve 10 times the cardio from your workouts in 1/10 of the the time? If so then you have arrived in the right place. Permit yourself a minute to continue reading up on how kettlebell cardio is one of the best forms of conditioning you can put yourself through!
Serious Kettlebell Cardio!
So you are probably wondering Brandon how in the world could kettlebell cardio get me so much more in so little time? Well the secret to getting the benefits of tremendous cardiovascular conditioning is in the concept of physical exertion. You see you can quickly elevate your level of perceived exertion by placing your body under stress through resisted movement exercises. It just so happens that kettlebell training provides the perfect scenario for you to do this and to do so within a relatively short period of time. You see getting in shape and conditioning your body doesn’t necessarily mean that “more time” is the answer, but rather what you do with your workouts within the given amount of time you are training is the key!
For instance, when you are executing some of the more strength endurance based lifts with the kettlebell such as swings and snatches you can quickly elevate your respiration and heart rate. These particular exercises are total body lifts which require the forced effort of hundreds of your working muscles in order to pull them off. Because of this total body stress you are going to quickly stimulate your nervous system causing a significant increase in your respiration, heart rate, blood pressure, and overall skeletal muscular exertion. By executing lifts such as kettlebell swings and snatches you are combining the benefits of both cardio and strength training at one time. Because of this you can perform the lifts in continuous work to rest intervals allowing for a highly productive training effect that will exhaust you in a matter of minutes! This is the reason you can achieve so much more in so little time.
The beauty of this type of cardio workout is that you can structure it so it will suit your needs and schedule the best. By only performing 6 to 8 sets of kettlebell swings 20 to 30 reps at a time and only giving yourself a 30 second rest period you will have a significant cardiovascular workout for your program. This is a simplified version, but thats the beauty of having an effective cardio strength training plan. I have had the fortunate opportunity to train many athletes and serious fitness junkies here in the Atlanta, Georgia area now for over 10 years and nothing has propelled their performance better than my kettlebell cardio strength program. One thing that I always tell my athletes (especially my MMA fighters) is “That no matter how big and strong your opponent is fatigue is always the great equalizer!” Feel free to learn more about this and other serious training tactics by getting my FREE downloadable training guide the “10 Step Method To Strength: Mastering The One Arm One Legged Push Up!” Along with this you will also receive my FREE newsletter and FREE training tips.
