    Default Workout routines for group KB classes

    Of you individuals that are training groups in Kettlebell classes. What are some of your favorite workouts that seem to be easy to teach groups technically, yet still effective physically for your clients. Is there anyone out there using "Battling Ropes" and/or Slosh Pipes along with Kettlebells in these types of classes?

    Also, if there are others out there that would like to post their favorite workouts that they think would work for Kettlebell groups, that would be nice also.

    Default Workout routines for group KB classes

    This year, I've been teaching two-hour workshops, not classes. The focus is on skill, not working out, but we end each class with a 10-minute workout. I choose a very simple format, the same one I suggest in my article on passing the RKC snatch test.

    We do 10 minutes of 5+5 snatches on the :60. The students are told that, since they may not start the set if they aren't confident they can finish it in good form, that adjustments are allowed. They can cut the reps to 4 or 3, switch to swings or even cleans, or switch to a lighter kettlebell. The only thing they can't do is avoid the new set of their chosen movement when the second hand hits the 12. As the Party likes to say, I have found this workout simple, brutal, and effective.

    We've been holding classes with up to 30 people in a class. Check out our sites for hundreds of workouts. All of our workouts are geared toward large groups. We use Battling Ropes as well.

    I've been keeping to the ETK protocol for a technique and strength. Double KB complex ladders are a lot of fun! I also use a 6-station cirucuit with work/rest @ :30/:30 and rotate push/pull, upper/lower, dynamic/grind and go through that for rounds. The Lead Boots workout that was posted by Philip Davis a while back is now a hated-favorite as well as Swing/Burpee ladders. Make it organized, simple and fun and the workouts seem to flow great. Good luck with your group training!

    1. Joint Mobility or Z warm up
    2. Learn a new technique (optional)
    3. Strength phase (circuits possibly)
    4. Kick their butts with high intensity cardio (snatches, bear crawls, tabatas, etc.)
    5. Stretching

    With that template you have many possibilities.
