WHY ADD IN KB STRENGTH & CONDITIONING?
Real strength and conditioning serves to fortify the body. Did you know that studies have shown that proper weight training and mobility work will help strengthen your tendons, ligaments, joints and muscles? All of this will make you far more equipped to handle the load and the dynamic demands of both daily life and martial arts training.
A proper strength and conditioning routine will also help battle the modern epidemic of muscle imbalances. These imbalances arise when you sit all day at work, or when you are in one position (a martial art, tennis stance for example) for an extended period of time. They can also arise from repetitive overuse, and from our own poor habits. Muscle imbalances cause chronic pan, and also hinder our ability to perform to our very best capacity in any sport, activity or art we do (martial arts included). And sadly, we ALL (yes all of us) have a form of a muscle imbalance due to the simple demands of our life. The good news is that proper, structured and systemized strength and conditioning (your KB classes at AMAA, or the proper use of our new gym), can help correct those imbalances.
WHY SHOULD I DO BOTH?
- Injury Prevention
- Performance Enhancement (you’ll reach your full physical potential in your arts)
- Longevity and Quality of Daily Motion
- Correcting Muscle Imbalances (basically getting pain free & awesome)
- Weight-loss, Weight Maintenance, Muscle Tone, Testosterone Boost
- Mood, Energy and Overall Mind-Body Connection
- Breath and Stress
- Hormonal Balance
WHAT MAKES THESE CLASS UNIQUE?
A great emphasis of this class is placed on:
- Strength & Power Development
- Muscle Imbalances – Body Alignment
- Quickness, Agility & Speed
- Balance & Stability
- Prehab / Rehab
WHO DEVELOPED THIS PROGRAM?
Dasha L Anderson (MS, NASM-PES, NASE, MKC) developed this program. Dasha has spent two decades in fitness, originally losing forty pounds herself, and then maintaining that weight and building strong and lean muscle, mobility and health. Dasha has a Masters Degree in Sports Science, and Sports Nutrition with a specialty in Performance Enhancement. She has a NASM PES degree, and several other National accreditations. She also teaches the art of kettlebells to fitness professionals in her instructor certifications. Dasha has an extensive martial arts lineage and her kettlebell lineage goes back the legendary Steve Maxwell (Dasha’s fitness mentor, teacher and longtime friend).
HOW WILL I ACHIEVE THE ABOVE?
Dasha has trained under some of the very best people in the world. The inspiration and curriculum for each class comes from martial arts, kettlebells, and sports science. Dasha has also been at this (training pro athletes, celebs, martial artists) for a decade and a half! And, importantly for us, she is a martial artist, which means that KB is 100% full on in martial arts values. Achieving these goals can be done by incorporating:
- Martial arts movement
- Sports Science
- High Emphasis on Mobility & Longevity
- Teaching YOU the art of Kettlebells
- Ballistics, Grinds and Slow Negative Principles
CAN I DO BACK-TO- BACK CLASSES?
Yes! Of course it’s all about knowing your body, but there is no reason why you can’t do several classes back-to-back. It is mainly about the right amount of consistency but not heavily overwhelming hours day to day, this way there is no over training.
If you are looking to just take KB at the Academy you are free to do so. For KB you can purchase a class pack or have an opportunity to do a monthly pack.
HOW MANY DAYS SHOULD I TRAIN PER WEEK?
Honestly, for a martial artist, twice a week is an ideal amount of time to come into a KB class, see great results, all while avoiding overtraining.
Men need to strength train at least 2x a week for proper results. Women at least 1x a week. But, if you are doing a massive amount of Boxing, BJJ and Muay Thai classes along with your JKD curriculum (by massive we mean 6 plus hours a week) then Dasha would advise bringing down the strength training total to 1x a week.
