Or, how dropping in leads to dropping out.
This week I was going to write about some common exercises you probably shouldn’t be doing.
However, I’ve had quite a few requests over the past few weeks for drop-in Kettlebell classes, so I’ve changed the plan. Instead, I’m going to address something that we touched upon last week as one of the three reasons that so many workout plans fail.
Erm, I don’t get it Craig, what’s the link between drop in classes and my training plan not working?
A valid question.
The answer is a single word.
And that word is:
Allow me to elaborate.
Or, Why The Plan Isn't Working
Hands up if you have a regular workout schedule and diet in place.
I hope all of your hands are up?
The only reason you shouldn’t have such a plan – by which I mean an attendance schedule, a programme. and a goal appropriate diet – is if you’re new to exercise.
(if this is you and you want to get started with kettlebells, please see last week’s blog for a great opportunity to get yourself going)
If you raised your hand, keep it raised if you’re getting the results you want.
I often do this at seminars and workshops, and the number of hands dropping at this point is usually quite alarming.
(If you're reading this at your office or in public I suggest lowering your hand anyway - people are staring at you)
You’re not getting the results you want because your plan isn’t working, that’s obvious, right?
But why isn’t it working?
Or Your Invitation To The Pooding Club
One of my golden rules is that I’ll never ask – or worse, teach – a student to do something that I can’t do.
That doesn’t mean in terms of strength or reps, but in terms of technique, relevance, and safety.
So, with that in mind, I’m about to carry out a test on myself before making a programme available to you.
Read that again.
I’m not going to sell you a programme, I’m going to give it to you.
Why would I do that?
Because, unlike most trainers, I’m not interested in making money from you, I’m just interested in spreading Kettlebell love.
It’s the mission of all the trainers here at Sparta and the Coventry Kettlebell Centre to get as many people as possible using Kettlebells effectively, safely, and most importantly, to get people fitter, healthier and stronger through their use.
This sounds great, Craig, but how do I get my free programme, and what’s the test you’re going to perform on yourself?
Two good questions.
But let me ask you two questions first…
