What Is A Kettlebell Man Maker

Well, I’m too lazy to research it, but after a mapmaker ladder today with other killer exercises in between each step of the ladder I once again felt that awesome manly feeling afterward.

We can’t ignore the fact that one of the two below has an expression of “Yeah!” and the other of “Newton, I want my mother”. I’m just kidding of course, that’s my wife, and she’s a beast (in the good sense of the word).

Plank position Triceps push-up Renegade row Clean Squat Thruster Place the kettle bells at a comfortable arm’s length (but not so far where you have to overreach) Shoulder width apart Hinge at the hips (hip flexion) Grab the kettle bell handles Place the handle under the butt of the thumb Lock your elbows Contract your lats Brace your chest Kick your legs out Brace your core Lock your knees Land on the ball of your feet Lower into triceps push-up Push back up Lockout Slightly widen the distance between the feet for more stability Place your weight on one arm Row one kettle bell into the hips Move nothing but the upper arm Relax the forearm and make sure not to curl the weight Create shoulder extension (pull the elbow up) Lower the weight back Place the weight on the arm that just performed the row Perform a row on the other side Slightly lower the hips Pop the hips up Pull the legs in and under Land on flat feet The same position you obtained in step 1 to 5 Pull the kettle bells in Pull all the way till the arms connect with the body Do not create ankle dorsiflexion Keep the spine neutral Let the kettle bells come out Pull them in through an acceleration jerk (shoulders coming up and back) Create an arc-like path Flex the elbows but don’t pull the weight in The kettle bells should float Open up and insert Rack Squat (another 30 steps could be added here to describe the squat) Thrust the kettle bells up by coming out of the squat as explosively as possible (it’s not a squat and press) End up overhead with the kettle bells Full extension Full lockout Drop into rack Drop into back swing Lower to dead Repeat

If you watched the video of the KB and db version, compare the way you get into position, with the db it’s very awkward to get into the plank position, you can’t get explosive. The same applies to the clean, compare both and you’ll see the major differences.

By the way, if you want to make it harder than add another push-up before the second row, I think it’s torture enough with just one. If you look at the video you’ll see that the dumbbells (handles) are low to the ground, this requires good flexibility which most people in a regular group class just don’t have, so, a recipe for disaster.

Of course, the dumbbell mapmaker can be performed flawlessly by those who have all the right attributes, but my point is, the kettle bell version of the mapmaker is much safer and can be performed with much more grace. Come into plank Triceps push-up Tap the hip with one hand Tap the hip with the other hand Stand up Squat Jump

Posted on June 8th, 2009 | Categories: Fat Loss, Kettle bell Routines This article was written by Bill Cullen, ROC (Russian Kettle bell Certified instructor). As the title states, it is a man — maker and I would suggest you start out on the easy end of it lest you want to give yourself a heart attack.

I'm a retired Army Special Forces Master Sergeant and a certified kettle bell instructor. After twenty years in the Army, I thought PT had to be four to ten miles of running a day along with the daily dozen (push ups, sit-ups, you name it!)

My knees and ankles ached from years of parachute landing falls and countless days under the pain bag (anyone who's been there knows). As soon as I retired, I was hired by a government agency and became partners in pain with Jeff Mar tone, who is one of Pavel's excellent kettle bell instructors, a master of physical fitness and combat.

Jeff designed a super physical training program for our agency using PTP concepts, body weight exercises and kettle bells. Within three months of working with Jeff, the KB's, and our PT program, my body started to recover.

Then in February 2001, I went to Pavel's ROC instructor certification program in St. Paul, MN. Now, eighteen months later, my back feels great and my legs are like tree trunks.

I run thirty minutes twice a week and work KB's three days a week, consisting of presses, and snatches, in between KB sets I do one legged squats or Hindu squats for a duration of 20 to 45 minutes this will really keep your heart rate up. I feed a towel through the handle of a KB and swing it around as if doing a hammer throw.

This really works the abs and the rib cage muscles along with the legs and forearms. It is also a very good balance exercise, perfect way to end a KB workout, but be sure you grip the ground with your toes.

When I’m feeling crazy I have a smoker of a workout seen in the June 2002 edition of Muscle Media, page 93. I do snatches for high repetitions; for those new to KB’s or weak of heart swings can be used.

— quarter of a mile, jogging lets your heart and body recover, if you are running fast it means you didn’t do enough repetitions with your KB. Continue this routine for 2 miles or farther or till you leave a lung on the ground.

This is a fat buster and a cardio gut check but the great thing is you can always make it harder or easier by tweaking the number of repetitions. I'm a retired Army Special Forces Master Sergeant and a certified kettle bell instructor.

This is a fat buster and a cardio gut check but the great thing is you can always make it harder or easier by tweaking the number of repetitions. Like the burpee, the Mapmaker is a full body exercise that will improve strength and cardiovascular endurance.

However, it will target even more muscles (lower body) and use external resistance. Man Makers consist of stringing together a series of individual exercises.

These exercises are the single arm row from a plank position, push-ups, squat, clean and the press. There are some variations to this exercise but I will be sticking to the one I just described for the purposes of this blog post.

Meaning, your body will continue to burn calories after you workout is done due to the demand of oxygen this exercise requires. Put even more simply, exercises that require more oxygen, consumes more calories.

You can also use dumbbells with rounded edges or even kettle bells but this is more of an advanced progression. Please be aware that opting for this progression presents more of an unstable set up, it would require a lot more core and shoulder stability.

Step 1 : Start at the top of a plank position for a pair of dumbbells. Step 2 : Once you push yourself back up, perform a single arm row for each side.

You want to drop quickly underneath the dumbbells before they arrive at the top. Step 5: Then bring back the dumbbells towards your shoulder and then to the ground.

You can walk or hop your feet back to the top of the plank position. Man Makers are tougher because you need to use external resistance; kettle bells or dumbbells.

Burpees would be a better option for someone that wasn’t as conditioned or if you simply wanted to move faster. The entire duration of the workout will take you 11 minutes and 45 seconds to complete.

Here is a quick video showing you how to import the files to your app. Each time you do a new repetition you will select a slightly heavier weight.

At this point you will want to rest 90 seconds and then complete the set again. If you practice this routine over time your body will become adapted to the stress.

To make it more challenging simply reduce the rest periods between sets, or add one more repetition. As I’ve previously mentioned, doing Man Makers with kettle bells is extremely tough.

Meaning, each time I do the movement, I will pick a heavier kettle bell.
