Using Kettlebells for Corrective Exercise – Correctives with Kettlebells – Corrective Exercise Kettlebells
Here Drs. Mark Cheng and Jimmy Yuan discuss using kettlebells for corrective exercise and the value of kettlebell exercises for corrective work. You’ll also hear a few exercise technique tips you can use for yourself or your clients as early as today.
“When I have people slow down the getup, not rely on the momentum, show stability at every stage along the way in terms of every posture—whether on the elbow, the hand, the bridge, whether going to the knee transition with knee down and all of the steps between—moving gradually and moving smoothly from one posture to the next, that’s dynamic control competency. You have to be able to show you can move, and also be static without freaking out.” ~Mark Cheng
“With corrective exercise, the goal is to get off the correctives. If your form is bad in your exercise, there’s no permanent way to get off of it. There’s no corrective for a bad technique.” ~Jimmy Yuan
