From the beginning, there are number of days in your life when the last thing you want to do is train, especially heavy.
You'll go through periods of depression , demotivation, self-doubt, and all those fun things that keep most people from progressing as much as they could but the dream life everyone has made up their mind for requires practice and train yourself to fight against the odds.
One of the most important things you can do as an athlete day to day is act as if- act as if there's nothing you'd rather be doing than training, that nothing on earth would make you happier at the moment than squatting heavy, doing a million snatches, or working on your weakest lift.
To remain fit and train yourself in the best way through fitness technique is Kettlebell which is effective and different from the mainstream.
A Kettlebell is a type of dumbbell or free weight that is round with a flat base and an arced handle. It looks like a cannonball with a handle, or a teapot without the spout, hence the name “kettlebell” in English.
Kettlebell is a very powerful tool. It can be moved, swung, juggled, thrown and pressed and manupilated in hundred of ways. It is believed that the Russians were first spotted using the Kettlebell, or Girya, in the early 1700s. It was primarily a tool used by farmers to help measure out crops…but if any get bored on a farm, the farmers started swinging these things and, lo and behold, they got stronger, healthier and became better humans. As, earlier, people threw them around as for entertainment purpose but was later termed out for weighlifting.
