Over the last 20 years we have seen so many fitness fads come and go, but the kettlebell has stood the test of time….and that’s because kettlebell training works.
Over the years I have found that if I am unfit then my grappling isn’t as smooth or as effective but if I am fit and strong, my grappling becomes way more efficient.
All grapplers need to be fit, strong, and agile as well as contain enough mobility in our joints to survive being pushed, pulled and twisted into every direction.
Look at a lot of the top ranked grapplers around the world and you can see that they all follow some sort of explosive strength and conditioning program which include kettlebell techniques.
In this kettle bell video, coach Funk of FunkMMA shows you the best kettlebell exercises for grapplers.
