The Kettlebell Instructor Course is a blueprint for learning all aspects of kettlebell training: technique, instruction, programming, and exercise selection.
Elizabethtown, KY (PRWEB) April 28, 2012
Youth sports training organization the International Youth Conditioning Association is currently running a promotional sale for its Kettlebell Instructor Course. The promotion began on Friday, April 27 and extends through the weekend, ending on Sunday, April 29.
The Kettlebell Instructor Course is a training course designed to teach coaches how to train their young athletes how to use kettlebells for their sports training. It is a blueprint for learning all aspects of kettlebell training: technique, instruction, programming, and exercise selection.
“The Kettlebell Instructor Course is really the only system of its kind,” said IYCA CEO Pat Rigsby. “Kettlebell usage has definitely been on the rise in recent years, as adults realize their benefits. We are now making this type of training available for youth sports training.”
Young athlete development is a careful process, and many youth fitness scientists and trainers promote the benefits of strength training for kids. Kettlebell training is renowned for teaching children sound technique and fundamentals – attributes that carry over to the field of play.
“One problem with youth coaches right now is that they fail to emphasize strength training,” Rigsby notes. “The IYCA addresses all significant aspects of youth training. Kettlebells are quite possibly the best individual tool for strength and power training.”
Although kettlebells have been proven effective time and again, their recent surge in popularity has some youth fitness professionals thinking they are a simple fad. While this is not the case, there still are not many options for coaches to learn how to use them properly.
“It’s upsetting that youth sports coaches don’t have access to accurate information on kettlebells,” Rigsby says. “In reality, kettlebell training benefits players at all positions in sports from football to basketball, from baseball to figure skating, and everything in between.”
The Kettlebell Instructor Course has four main aims. The first is simply helping youth coaches understand how to teach kettlebell usage to young athletes.
Beyond that, the course teaches youth fitness specialists how to choose appropriate exercise for kids’ ability levels. It also teaches workout progressions and regressions. Lastly, the tool teaches positioning and leverages, while also keeping kettlebells in the context of complete training.
“If you truly want to be an elite youth fitness professional, you have to learn how to train with kettlebells,” Rigsby says. “The benefits are just too great to ignore. They are one of the best tools for improving strength, mobility, flexibility, coordination, power, and speed.”
