Sample Kettlebell Sport-Conditioning Programs

Now that you have an understanding of the basic exercise principles and energy systems involved, we provide some sample kettlebell programs for American football, basketball, boxing, golf, hockey, kickboxing, soccer, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and wrestling. Along with each program, we also briefly discuss the primary movement patterns and qualities employed in the sport.

Use the training templates in this chapter as starting points for developing your kettlebell sport-conditioning workouts, and let your understanding of exercise principles, energy systems, and movement patterns guide you in putting together your own effective cross-training programs.
