Though kettlebells have been a resistance training tool used for centuries, their popularity in the last few decades has grown considerably with the advent of numerous functional training and conditioning programs. While primarily used to perform exercises in a ballistic fashion, kettlebells can also be used to develop mobility, strength, and multiplanar stability in a wide variety of exercises. As such, kettlebells can be versatile rehabilitation tools that are able to be used effectively across multiple patient populations and settings. This one-day preconference course will take an in-depth approach to the application of kettlebells in the rehabilitation and return-to-sport process. Attendees will receive detailed instruction in appropriate performance of several of the most effective kettlebell exercises available, as well as how to appropriately teach them to patients. The speakers also will teach progressions and regressions, as well as several variations for each exercise.
Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
1. Discuss attributes of the kettlebell and safety considerations for training with kettlebells.
