Kettlebells Strongfirst – Minimalist kettlebell training for maximal results on the mat

There are many training tools and modalities that you can use to achieve elite levels of general physical preparedness. But kettlebells make the journey much straighter:

  • Unparalleled efficiency. The three “whales” of kettlebell exercises upon which this program is built—swings, get-ups, and C&Js—have an unmatched record of performance carryover to a wide range of sports, from ultra-endurance events to combat sports to powerlifting. This is what insiders call “what-the-hell effects.” You would have to do a much greater number of exercises without kettlebells to replicate the same effects.
  • Develop power, strength, and conditioning at the same time. Other modalities claim to do it—but there are always strings attached. E.g., repetition barbell lifts will mangle your joints worse than a black belt. Bodyweight training has many benefits but preparing your posterior chain for a confrontation is not one of them.
  • All-terrain strength. Getting strong in one direction may be enough for lifters, but not for grapplers. Tame a rebellious kettlebell in 3D—and see the difference on the mat.
  • A steep learning curve. It takes years to master a barbell clean or jerk—even under expert coaching. Kettlebells offer a DIY alternative for people who have better things to do—such as getting more mat time.
  • A perfect fit for BJJ strength…The swing is all about “hips and grips”—as Carl Agnelli puts it—just like grappling. The get-up is about not to letting anyone hold you down. The C&J is about taking punishment and dishing it out.
  • …and a balance against the BJJ posture. Mark Reifkind insists: “Do not live your sport’s posture.” Your grappling career will be short and painful if you go through life hunched over. Kettlebell swings and cleans work magic for the posterior chain—without the complexity and the stiffness that accompany barbell lifts.
  • Cycling tension and relaxation. Demanded by fighting. Taught by kettlebells.
  • Ergonomic perfection. You cannot swing a barbell between your legs, but the kettlebell’s compact design allows you to load your hips ballistically at high speed. Its offset center of gravity enables unparalleled shoulder mobility and stability.
  • Resilience. The get-up has a legendary reputation for bullet-proofing the shoulders. The swing will unload your overworked lower back by putting your glutes to work. The clean-and-jerk fortifies the entire body for rough play. Mike Perry adds that many kettlebell exercises train one “to maintain postural integrity as fatigue sets in. A posture breakdown in BJJ will result in a lackluster performance.”
  • Replace an entire gym with several kettlebells. This is where StrongFirst’s programming comes in, “simple and sinister.”
