One of the most fundamental things anyone should learn before even thinking about picking up a kettlebell is grip, the manner of holding a kettlebell, something that may seem insignificant is actually so important for efficiency; preventing injury; preventing blisters; prevent exhausting grip, forearms, biceps, shoulders etc.
This book will explain and illustrate to kettlebell enthusiasts and crossfitters how to grip a kettlebell for many different exercises.

Why use different grips?
If you're asking this question, then you're asking the right question, because knowing a lot of grips is cool, but knowing why you would change grip or use one over the other is even  cooler and the part you should really understand.

During kettlebell training you employ different grips to make certain exercises more efficient, but you also change grips to increase difficulty and challenge other muscle groups. Sometimes when your training gets stale you might even employ a different grip to please the mind.

While knowing kettlebell grips and when to employ them is important and one of the kettlebell fundamentals, the second most important thing you should start looking into is racking a kettlebell. It might seem insignificant, but a lot hinges on how you rack your kettlebell, in fact, some people give up on kettlebell training because they can't get comfortable in the racking position or can't find the proper position for the bell to rest.

This book is part of the series brought out by Cavemantraining and builds up to more advanced techniques over time, this is the ultimate foundation for proper kettlebell training.

There are over 25+ different kettlebell grips in this book, over 50 illustrations and more than 40 pages.
