Welcome to Bells Up Beginner!
Bells Up Beginner programs are for students new to kettlebell training and/or weight training in general. These classes help perfect basic technique in push/pull/deadlift and squat movements. The first series in the beginner program focuses on strengthening the posterior chain (back of body), core and laying the strength foundation for your entire body. The posterior chain is often undertrained and is the most important area to focus on to see physical changes and strength progress.
All classes are provided by full video or partial video recordings, with the written program included in the class description for every class. Partial recordings include a filmed warm-up and detailed movement explanations/cues for the rest of the program. We offer programs in this fashion because true strength training sets require more rest time than a typical interval class format allows.
Series 1 concludes after 12 classes, meant to be done TWICE (24 total sessions). We recommend repeating classes if you haven't mastered the repetitions with your specific weight. Example: complete classes 1-3, repeat, then move on to class 4. Do the same for classes 4-6, and so on. By practicing movements repetitively, you'll change your body through improved technique, more reps and weight increases over time.
