Kettlebell Training for Strength and Endurance

Kettlebell training for strength and endurance is showcased in this video routine. This workout is primarily aimed at developing strength endurance and the aim of the workout is to not let the kettlebell rest on the ground.

The workout uses a single bell and works one side of the body before being switched to the other side of the body. A key is develop a consistent pace and rhythm so the time in the workout can be extended and endurance is developed. You have two options on when to switch the exercise: time or repetitions. Select a time (for example 30 seconds) and then switch the exercise once this time has elapsed. The other option is repetitions. The aim is to complete the kettlebell exercises in the same order that is showcased on the video. That is single arm swings, cleans, squats, presses, jerks-short cycle, jerks-long cycle and then snatches.

The aim is to improve the overall volume from session to session. So you may increase the time by 5 seconds from session to session or the repetitions may increase by 1-2.

Select a weight that you are comfortable with and don’t compromise form or technique in order to get more volume. Focus on quality and not just quantity.

You can learn all the exercises in-depth in our Level 1 and 2 Kettlebell courses. You can find out more information about these as well as the other functional training courses here.
