Hi everyone! Today, I discuss (ok, rant) about one of my biggest pet peeves. Enjoy!
I take you “behind the scenes” at the Niagara Kettlebell Sport Open (NKSO). This was my first time vlogging. I still find it very strange talking into a camera, especially in public! This was the 4th annual NKSO. Learn more here: http://www.niagarakettlebellsportopen.com/ Special thanks to Gregor Sobocan for actually succeeding in getting me on the platform for the first time since **I realize that I had the gain on too high on the mic – my bad** https://youtu.be/52Na_23_9go
Hi everyone, One frustrating thing that I have personally gone through in Kettlebell Sport is wrist pain. Resting the kettlebell in the rack position can put stress on the wrist and lead to pain. One way to help deal with this pain is to tape the wrist. Below, I show you a way to tape the wrist in a way to help support the carpal (wrist) bones. DISCLAIMER: Persistent wrist pain sucks. I mean, it really sucks. Please understand that this tape job is a “band-aid” and any persistent pain should be checked out by a health care professional.
Hi everyone! I’m excited to show you this particular exercise! It’s great for enhancing stability in the overhead position. You can also customize it to feel more tension in certain directions, make it harder by stepping away from the bar and more. Lots of possibilities with this exercise! Try it out and let me know how it goes!
This week, we’re continuing our series on overhead stability. Our focus today is on the Bottoms-Up! This is a very way to vary exercises to increase the amount of grip needed, which in turn promotes increased shoulder muscle activity. Try it out and let me know what you think! https://youtu.be/mkMDX7ZbEYU
How does the shoulder blade (AKA scapula) play a role with overhead stability? To find out, see below! https://youtu.be/ErmUvzhG0Ok Thanks for your attention! Eric
Hey gang! I’ll be starting a new mini-series within my Kettlebell Sport Science series (Inception, à la series?). I will be diving deep on the topic of overhead stability. Of course, this is a very important part of kettlebell sport. Without it, every rep would be a no count! For this first part, I will be discussing how the thoracic spine can impact overhead stability. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/H-9WyeZPbkA
