In the gym, especially in TNT’s training environment, being aware of your surroundings is a necessity. Our priority for you first is to be safe, then to ensure you’re seeing results!!
Here’s 3 easy tips to help keep you injury free when exercising!
- Start and finish every standing kettlebell movement by hiking the kettlebell, this comes from a broken record, but it is worth its weight in gold when your lower back starts to hurt!!
- Lockout during the ‘float’ phase. Knees, hips, and abs all contract, like bracing for a punch!
- Ask for a spotter or for more instruction. Not sure about your get up? Grab one of the instructors or a strong friend and have them spot (It’s a cast iron ball, it will win). The trainers can see a lot (ie, those glutes not locking out on your swings ;D), but we cannot feel that your shoulders are uncomfortable during pullups!
So, ask for help, hike the kettlebell, and lockout!
