How effective is Kettlebell training for strength and flexiblity? Seems like it would damage joints and soft tissue from excessive strain and jerking.
Bench - 225
Squat - 247x5
Deadlift - 315
KBs definitely have their place. It really depends on what your goals are.
Fuck, fight, or hold the light.
Like any kind of training, you have to master proper technique and gradually build intensity and volume. Again, like anything else, if you do too much too soon, you're asking for trouble.Seems like it would damage joints and soft tissue from excessive strain and jerking.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
