Kettlebell juggling happens to be, in my opinion, one of the most fun training methods available. Not only will it work your strength from all angles, but it’ll build huge levels of conditioning depending of course on the weight you use and how long you go.
This video will show you a variety of possible moves with different size weights, including some double kettlebell juggling. I first got into juggling a kettlebell after seeing Jeff Martone do a demonstration. That was many years ago and I’ve spent hours and hours practicing ever since.
Here are a few more advanced double kettlebell juggling moves.
It is also possible to do kettlebell juggling with partners, throwing the weight between two or more people.
T the most basic move is a simple release and catch from a normal swing. Once you can do it, catching with the same hand or the opposite, all you have to do is put a little force on the handle to do a flip. For the most part all the moves on built on top of this.
If you can swing a kettlebell, you can get starting with kettlebell juggling. It is much simpler than people think. What I really like about this skillset is it is something you can gain experience in quickly, often being able to do several new moves every single practice session.
What I like about kettlebell juggling (besides it being fun though that is one of the best aspects) is that it build strength, endurance, hand-eye coordination, explosiveness and shock absorption all across the body. It challenges the body in three dimensions which translates well to life and sport.
Make sure to practice outside and be wary of dropping the kettlebell on your feet. If nothing else, it’ll build your reaction time.
