Swing, Clean and Snatch: An Intimate Kettlebell Workshop
WHEN: 12-3 p.m on Saturday, July 26
DESCRIPTION: Master many variations and nuances of these three basic ballistic kettlebell movements in this three-hour, small-group workshop with instructor Jen Sinkler, RKC-II, KBA.
Expanding the ways you’re able to move a kettlebell will pay off immensely by improving strength, power and core stability (including the often-overlooked anti-rotational component, which is difficult to achieve with a barbell). You’ll learn a slew of new skills over the course of this three-hour session, and we’ll probably dig into a few lifts not on the agenda, too.
We’re dramatically limiting the number of participants 1) because Jen put off sending us the details of the workshop until it was nearly too late, and 2) because it’s more fun when you get more one-on-one coaching, yes?
* The class will be capped at 10 people; We will release the registration on Wodify later tonight. For those of you who are not members of Crossfit 215, please email [email protected] and we will save you a spot!
Bring 80s-style wristbands. (We’ll pretend to play tennis afterward.)
COST: $75 for a three-hour session
