Thanks to the efforts of Pavel Tsatsouline and other former Eastern Bloc athletes and trainers, the Russian kettlebell has proven to be a solid fixture on the fitness scene. However, few fully appreciate the rehabilitative potential of this unique device. While some trainers are eager to "pile fitness on dysfunction" or simply hope to train around their client's neuromuscular imbalances, Tsatsouline has partnered with Gray Cook’s Functional Movement Systems™ (FMS) to create a system that addresses the need for rehabilitative and prehabilitative exercise. This video will integrate FMS concepts with specific kettlebell exercises so you can help your clients regain mobility and functionality.
