Elevated Basics

Elevated Basics

Total body strength and conditioning with kettlebells and your own bodyweight, making basic movements feel like anything but...

This 10-week program is focused on upper/lower body and core strength, with an optional x4 days-per-week training schedule. Three full-length videos will be offered to not only teach you movements, but keep you motivated to hit every set and rep. A full written program is included covering the program for all videos, plus an additional fourth self-led session each week, comprised of movements you've done in previous videos.

What to expect:
*6-minute skill breakdowns during each session to teach you new moves and/or give you tips to set yourself up for success
*learn and practice the kettlebell bent press for back and core strength
*isometric holds, tempo movements, high-heart rate segments
*options for adding barbell lifts and pull ups for advanced levels
*end of program test: overhead press reps, squat strength, "Simple" endurance test, bent press skill

We follow a REPETITION cadence for all Bells Up Studio videos. Please REPEAT sessions in the following format, either by completing each video a second time, or using the provided written program the second time through each session. We repeat to increase weights, improve technique and make real progress by following a training program (never random). We have a growing library of cardio/conditioning classes that can be completed in between strength training sessions; we recommend completing x1-2 conditioning classes per week OR doing your favorite form of cardio or other workout you love (running, hiking, Pilates, HIIT and bootcamp classes, etc)...
