Lance Armstrong using Kettlebells?
So is Lance Armstrong really using kettlebells? It certainly looks like it from this picture as he is seen doing a double handed kettlebell swing. Although note that Lance does look seriously ripped and buffed up which isn't his usual look (air brushed?)
Lance is returning from retirement to try and win the Tour De France next year.
This article about Lance Armstrongs Killer Workout is quite interesting as it suggests that Lance will reveal his 'Killer Workout' in Mens Health magazine and will contain kettlebells
I doubt seriously that kettlebells will be the key to Lance's success if he wins but will just be used as tool for his GPP in his preperation for next years Tour De France or that his killer workout will be the actual workout that he does.
Many cyclists and endurance athletes are turning to resistance training and is becoming a part of their yearly schedule. To quote Ultracycling.com
"To achieve full potential as an endurance athlete and remain competitive in challenging events, an individually designed resistance training program should be implemented. "
I couldn't agree more with this and kettlebells are a great tool to add to any cyclists resistance program.
