Welcome to Bells Up TV Beginner Program, Series 1!
This 4 week program is expertly crafted to help you practice the basics of breathing, core bracing, tension when lifting and common movement patterns done with kettlebells and beyond. We'll not lead you through a workout, we'll teach you technique and offer customizations to make training fit your needs. If you are an absolute beginner (haven't lifted weights before and need solid foundation before doing so), please complete the Beginner Onboarding Program before this program. The Beginner Onboarding Program last two weeks (8 classes) and covers in-depth mechanics for breath work, squatting, hinging, lunging, pressing and rotating, along with important instruction like how to pick up and hold a kettlebell.
All classes in the Beginner Program are filmed in full video format (we do the entire training session with you). All videos include a written version in case you understand all movements required and want to train on your own. Each class lasts between 20-30 minutes, with a full warm up and interval-based strength training sessions included.
The Beginner Program runs on a x4 per week training cadence. We recommend completing all classes in order in a timeframe that works for you. If you complete x4 classes per week, the program will last 4 weeks (16 classes total). We recommend repeating classes as you need them, or repeating the entire program again if you need more practice before moving to an intermediate-level class.
IMPORTANT EQUIPMENT NEEDS: x1 light kettlebell, x1 moderate kettlebell, access to a weight lifting bench or chair for some classes, yoga block (highly encouraged). You will find equipment recommendations for each class listed in the individual class description section.
NEXT STEPS: after completing the beginner program, you can move on to an intermediate level program or the current program offering on Bells Up TV. All programs follow a specific order and modifications are offered for all classes.
