When training we often put all of our focus on getting the reps done. Going from rep 1 to rep 10 (or however many) and repeating. There’s a lot that happens in between and sometimes it’s good to play with the end points and middle positions. Pausing at defined points throughout the movement, the start, end, and middle, can help build positional strength. This increases your ownership of the movement.

Combining kettlebells & bodyweight programming lets you explore the hard & soft sides of training. With bells you create a high level of tension, lock in your positioning, & move w. precision on the path to build strength. Bodyweight programming allows you to explore, introduce variability in moving through each pattern, & build a level of effortless (while still hard) movement.

Working w. bells provides a great opportunity to work both power & strength. This comes from the movements & the loading schemes you use. I’m a big fan of schemes that allow you to get volume & higher intensity, all while managing fatigue. One of my favorites is continuous singles.
