As many adults find that they are finally at a stage in life when the kids are grown, they don’t have to work full time, or at all and there are loads of great activities they want to do…YAY! The problem is that over those years of living they did not keep their bodies in the best of condition in order to do all those great activities, OR they did a lot of great activities and got hurt doing them years ago! (that would be me!)
The good news is that kettlebell and body weight training, when done correctly, (this is HUGE!) is safe and amazingly effective at ANY age! Kids do great, “Boomers and beyond” do great!
There are modifications that can make the drills doable for people with mobility issues, and there is nothing SAFER on the joints, than properly done kettlebell drills. I have spent much of my career as a trainer working with retired adults, and I am awed and amazed everyday with the strength and conditioning gains that they make.
I teach strength as a skill that can be taught, learned, and practiced at ANY age and at ANY size. To quote Mark Reifkind, SFG Master, “There is not much that strong won’t fix.”
