14 Minutes of Continuous Kettlebell Practice

I receive a lot of emails about my own personal training program. I seldom answer them, for fear of having someone misunderstand or misapply something in their own training. My program is unique and crafted for my personal needs, and it would be irresponsible to recommend others follow the same program that I do – or even model their own off of mine. That said, I don’t mind dropping a hint here or there.

In this particular case, I decided I was going to spend 14 minutes practicing my kettlebell technique without resting. That was the only criteria. There was no other plan. I turned the camera on just to see what would happen. The video below is what transpired. I’ll let you be the judge of what happened.

Looking for some great kettlebells?

P.S. I only recommend and endorse professional grade kettlebells. The kettlebell featured in the video is a 16 kg (35 lb) from Perform Better.

  1. Great stamina John!
    Must say my wife would go completely barmy with the copious amounts of sweat that would soak into our cream carpet if i tried that!
    And what album is that?

  2. is there like a kettlebell routine/program you recommend something similar to integrated approaches like tacfit and cst clubbells?

    • Sonnon has the Official Kettlebell Foundation DVD Series, which cover your traditional kettlebell exercises (swings, cleans, snatches, etc.), as well as some KB-specific warmups and cooldowns. He also released the TACFIT Kettlebell Spetsnaz program awhile back, which is a complete workout program that includes a lot of unconventional KB exercises, including some stuff I had never even seen before. Between those two programs, you’d cover a lot of ground.

      Also, John Wolf released his Evolution Kettlebell Groundwork program not too long ago, too. I haven’t reviewed that one, but I know John is a great coach and was at one time appointed the CST/TACFIT Kettlebell representative. Scott basically handed John the entire Kettlebell division of his company. And these days, John Wolf is taking kettlebell training to a whole new level, and the first stages of that can be seen in his EKG program and workshops.

  3. cool thx i have a look into that
