PROGRAM 9: Hands On Bells

PROGRAM 9: Hands On Bells

Welcome to Bells Up TV, Program 9, Hand On Bells!

The Bells Up TV Intermediate/Advanced Series continues with a 10-week program focused on double bell over head strength, unilateral lower body movements and snatch technique. If snatching is not in your practice, you’ll find modifications, including the push press. The goal of this program is to develop overhead/shoulder strength, develop the quads and keep your practice balanced with single-side movements.

PROGRAM 9 is for intermediate and advanced levels; we offer modifications and progressions along the way to help you fit the program to your needs. All classes include weight/effort recommendations based on RPE (rate of perceived effort/exertion). RPE guidelines will help you find the intensity that is correct for you and will help us coach you through the intent of each session. We recommend completing this program after PROGRAM 8, or starting here and moving on to PROGRAM 10 in the future.

Key Movements: kettlebell jerks, push presses, viking presses, snatches, double bell presses, goblet squats, double bell squats, lateral lunges

Test Movements: push press or snatch and double kettlebell squats

This program runs on a x3 per week strength training cadence. We recommend selecting x1-2 classes from the Intermediate or Advanced conditioning series if you want to train x5-6 days per week with Bells Up TV. EXAMPLE cadence: M/W/F strength classes (this program), Tues/Sat cardio classes, Thurs/Sun off days.
