Visit blog.kettlebellkings.com for more instructional content and kettlebellkings.com for the equipment used in the videos! Most people probably still think of kettlebells mainly as equipment for high repetition and/or high intensity workouts, which they are great for. However, kettlebells can be used for high weight/low repetition movements as well if you really want to build muscle. Some people know this, which is why our 48Kg|106 Lb Powder Coat kettlebell is always one of our top sellers when it is in stock. We recently launched even heavier kettlebells in 56, 68, 80 and 92 kilograms, designed for those who want to take their low repetition kettlebell movements to the next level, so we wanted to do a series on some of the best uses for them. Jessica and Seneca from Texas Kettlebell Academy have put together an instructional piece on the 'Heavy Kettlebell Deficit Deadlift (squat hybrid)' which we will go over here. The purpose of the 'Heavy Kettlebell Deficity Deadlit' is to strengthen the posterior chain. What is that? Only one of the most important groups of muscles in your body which affects your ability to move. The posterior chain is a group of muscles consisting of tendons and ligaments on the posterior of the body, including the biceps femoris, gluteus maximus (main extension muscle of your hips), erector spinae (straighten and rotate the back), trapezius (large muscles that cover almost your entire back), and posterior (butt). These muscles are responsible for running, jumping and getting up and down all of which are required in every day life but even more so in competitive lifting and athletics because of the necessity of powerful hip extension, which this lift helps. Overall, that makes the Deficit Deadlift a great lift for overall improvement in and outside the gym. The Deficit Deadlift : 1) increased range of motion compared to normal deadlift 2) place kettlebell in between platforms/boxes and stand on them above the kettlebell 3) knees are over the ankles, the weight is back on your heels spine is straight, lift with arms first, keep back straight and drive with force through heels 4) you do not have to drop kettlebell all the way back down when coming down but you do want to get low How to incorporate into your training: Do a density cycle in which you build reps over time and reduce rest in between each subsequent time. For example, every minute on the minute do 'X' amount of reps and rest the remainder of the time until the next minute starts. Over time, try to get more reps and less reps in the same cycle. Ex: Do 5 reps, say it takes you 20 seconds, then rest 40 seconds until the next minute, repeat for 'X' amount of total minutes. If your goal is 50 total reps, then 10 minutes in this example. Then next time do 6 reps, rest the remainder of the minute and repeat on the next minute Your goal is over time to be able to do more reps over time and increase the strength of your posterior chain, quads and back. The posterior chain is a group of muscles consisting predominantly of tendons and ligaments on the posterior of the body, including the biceps femoris, gluteus maximus, erector spinae muscle group, trapezius, and posterior. Ultimately, doing movements like this will increase both your strength and endurance. It has functional use for every day movements as well as competitive fitness use for kettlebell sport training because kettlebell competitions blend strength and endurance.

The Deficit Deadlift :

1) increased range of motion compared to normal deadlift
2) place kettlebell in between platforms/boxes and stand on them above the kettlebell
3) knees are over the ankles, the weight is back on your heels
spine is straight, lift with arms first, keep back straight and drive with force through heels
4) you do not have to drop kettlebell all the way back down when coming down but you do want to get low

How to incorporate into your training:

Do a density cycle in which you build reps over time and reduce rest in between each subsequent time. For example, every minute on the minute do ‘X’ amount of reps and rest the remainder of the time until the next minute starts. Over time, try to get more reps and less reps in the same cycle.
