The Kettlebell Deadlift January 17, 2018 Admin

The Kettlebell Deadlift

The deadlift is a tried and trusted workout that is usually performed using barbells. However, when you use kettlebells, the very simple and ordinary deadlift can transform into a killer workout targeting multiple muscles all over your body. It is therefore important that you learn to do the deadlift correctly during your kettlebell courses for trainers so that you can teach your clients how to master the form and technique of this deceptively effective kettlebell movement.

Benefits of doing Kettlebell Deadlift

The deadlift is considered to be a fundamental kettlebell movement and is taught at kettlebell courses for trainers. It is easy to master and is just perfect for beginners who are learning how to maneuver the kettlebell correctly. Visit the Online Fitness Courses website for more on learning to be a kettlebell instructor!

The deadlift is also the perfect workout to master the technique of hip hinge. Hinging at the hips is another movement that is performed during several workouts. Mastering the technique helps you to derive the optimum benefits of the workouts while avoiding several common injuries that are caused due to incorrect form.

The deadlift is highly effective in targeting large muscle groups in your back, the glutes and hamstrings. It also helps improve posture and stability and helps improve your grip.

How to do the Kettlebell Deadlift

To do the deadlift correctly, begin by placing the kettlebell at the centre between your feet so that it is in a straight line with your body. Stand with feet placed slightly wider than shoulder width with toes pointing outward.

Perform the hip hinge i.e. bend the body at the hips instead of at the lower back. Push the hips out backward while maintaining a straight spine. Remember that the movement should be from the hips and not your lower back.

Grip the kettlebell firmly by its horn with both hands and press your biceps against your body. Lift the kettlebell in one explosive motion and drive it overhead with a powerful thrust of your hips. When done correctly, your hips will move forward naturally, resulting in a swinging motion which is what kettlebell workouts are all about.

Hold position with the body in a straight line with the kettlebell held overhead at the centre of your head. Now lower your body by hinging at the hips and place the kettlebell at exactly the same position on the ground in between your feet.

Common Mistakes to Avoid

Kettlebell courses will teach you about several common mistakes that your kettlebell exerciseclients may make while doing the kettlebell deadlift. Know more about these so that you can help your clients do their kettlebell workouts safely and effectively.

Firstly, the hip hinge is an integral part of the deadlift and should always engage the hips and never the lower back.

Secondly, always maintain a straight spine i.e. never bend your back or round the shoulders while trying to lift the kettlebell. Keep the head up and look ahead throughout the movement. Do not follow the movement of the kettlebell by moving your head accordingly.


Thirdly, maintain a firm grip and move the kettlebell in fluid motions by using the thrust of your hips.

5 Reasons to Hire a Personal Trainer March 30, 2017 Admin

According to the 2011-12 Australian health survey, approximately 70% of Aussie Adults have poor levels of physical activity or an all-together sedentary lifestyle.  If you’re one among these 12 million, you’d do well to know that the perfect prescription for workout (as per the Australian physical activity guidelines) is

2.5 – 5 hours of moderately intense exercise (or 1.25 – 2.5 hours of highly intense workout) per week.

Strength training on at least 2 days out of 7.

Yoga or stretching on recovery days.

While you may exercise alone at home, nothing can beat a gym session under an informed personal trainer. His experience as fitness professional and over a decade of online fitness coaching allows him to tailor the exercise program to suit your health conditions, persona and eagerness for improvement.

Still not convinced? Take a look at the benefits sustained gym activity gives you.

Puts a cap on BMI

A high BMI inflates your chances of becoming a diabetic, having a heart attack or (/and!) being afflicted with cancer. It’s no surprise then, that excessive body weight is the second highest contributor to disease in Australia.

Both cardio and weightlifting speed up metabolism, lead to higher calorie-burn and build you a lean, fat-free, healthy body.  In fact, anaerobic workout is proven to reverse aging-induced loss of muscle mass and strength.

Boosts heart and lung function

Endurance training strengthens your heart, widens its arteries and eases up blood flow. This apart, it also attacks the cholesterol and plaque deposits in your arterial walls and alleviates hypertension.

Periodic aerobic exertion enhance your ability to draw oxygen from the atmosphere, make your breathing more effective and add to lung volume.

Dan Clay, a Gold Coast personal trainer believes 80% of your results are due to diet, with the remaining 20% due to exercise.


Regulates blood-sugar

Recent years have seen more and more Aussies turning diabetic, with 280 persons being the yearly addition to the pre-existing pool.

When combined with a low-sugar diet, periodic HIIT helps your body effectively use insulin to reduce your blood-glucose levels.

Improves memory and sleep

Continuous physical training activates brain cells which, in turn, endow you with a better memory and a higher intellect. Naturally, your risk of getting old-age diseases like dementia and Alzheimer’s is minimized.

Regular workouts ensure ideal working of your 24-hour body clock (AKA the sleep/wake cycle).  You, therefore, sleep well at night and stay active during the day.

Keeps you happy

Physical activity releases endorphins, the ‘happy’ chemicals, in your blood.  This not only elevates your mood during performance in the fitness centre but keeps it upbeat even hours there-after. A HIIT regime, in particular, makes you experience a narcotic ‘high’ and does a better job at keeping away the blues than your anti-depressant pill (sans side-effects!).

Habitual exercise also keeps in check the internal stressors,, adrenaline and cortisol; meaning, you don’t worry as much as you used to and, instead, focus on the positives in your life. Visit for a full library of fun and effective workout.

Hence, be sure to gift yourself good health under the expert guidance of a qualified personal trainer. You totally deserve it and much more!

Morocan Madness May 23, 2010 by Daisy Thomas (Surfer)

Hey People, Hope the season at home is going off! I have been holding off writing a blog as I have not yet uploaded any photos and as you can imagine Morocco does not have the fastest Internet time but I will give you a wee update now.

So I have started work with two weeks of Roxy Surf Weeks which has been crazy but really enjoyable, I am currently sitting very relaxed after a traditional Hammam and massage which consists of wearing paper underwear, getting scrubbed from head to toe and bathed. It is an incredible feeling and your skin comes out feeling the softest it has been since you were a wee tot. After two weeks of solid days in the sun, sand and ocean it was high time for a good relaxation.

It is interesting being a western woman in a Muslim country, at first I felt very vulnerable and out of my depth but as the days go by my surroundings are more familiar. There are not many women you see around the streets and when they are out and about they are covered from head to toe in their traditional jalabas and as you can imagine a western woman sticks out like a sore thumb but it has been nice covering up trying to fit into the culture.

The surf has not been amazing but its warm and I have been meeting some unreal people. Stay tuned for pics and more updates. Chur
