I came across this post on Steve Maxwell’s blog and thought it really hit the nail on the head for simplified kettlebell training. It’s a great reminder that even though you might have just one or two kettlebells, you can still get a great workout in and hit all your key muscle groups. New from Shihan, The Kettlebell Conditioning System is the ultimate guide to Kettlebell training. Renowned Kettlebell and fitness trainer Steve Maxwell teaches his core Kettlebell lifts along with his unique training system in an easy to understand, step by step fashion. Steve Maxwell has created the 300 Kettlebell Challenge to help build the ultimate Spartan Warrior body. This incredible strength and conditioning workout incorporates strength, cardio and joint mobility techniques for 300 brutal reps creating the most extreme workout ever using the Russian Kettlebell. Steve was the first person certified to teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in the USA and is a 6-time Pan-American BJJ champion and 3-time International Master/Senior Champion. Steve Maxwell is best known for starting Maxercise, the first official Kettlebell gym in the USA.

You do not need to spend hours and hours at a gym in order to build muscle or get rid of extra fat. This workout known as the Steve Cotter’s kettlebell workout plan does the same thing in a much shorter period of time.

During the 1800’s, a special training tool known as the kettlebell arrived from Russia. It has become the fundamental tool that Steve Cotter has utilized when coaching/training the US Marines and football teams such as the San Diego Chargers, the San Fransisco 49ers, and the Texas Rangers.
Cotter says that he maintains his muscle mass and a 6 % body fat percentage by using the kettlebell workout below. Goals are reach Without gym workout. It is recommended to perform Cotter’s kettlebell workout 4 times a week (for example Mon, Tues, Thurs and Fri). The workout takes between 30 – 40 minutes.

Cotter wants to point out the Two Arm Swing technique, which is included in each workout. The Two Arm Swing technique works on numerous different muscle groups and raises the heart rate right at the very beginning of a workout.
You need a pair of lighter kettlebells (8 – 12 kilos / 15 – 25 lbs for men, 4 – 6 kilos / 5 – 10 lbs for women) and a pair of heavier kettlebells (12 – 16 kg / 25 – 35 lbs for men, 6 – 8 kg / 10 – 15 lbs for women) for the training. For one exercise, you need an even heavier pair of kettlebells/dumbbells (20 – 30 kg / 45 – 70 lbs for men, 12 – 20 kg / 25 – 45 lbs for women).
