Kettlebell Intensity

Kettlebells are great metabolic tools, but when trying to increase the challenge of our swings its not always about weight, especially in a timed workout.

To really get the most out of a given load with swings you should be able to control the intensity of the swing. Meaning being able to swing at different levels or intensities at any given time. If we choose a load that is too heavy we only will only have one speed one gear and we will only be able to hang on go along for the ride and the Kb pulls us where it wants to go. So before we go bigger make sure we can go harder, without losing our form. If we are driving the Kb as hard as we can and we still have more in the tank, then it’s time to go up to the next load.
