Kettlebells to Get Professional Wrestlers Back In the Game

By Rob Sutter

Just recently, one of my preferred wrestlers in World Wrestling Entertainment today, Tyson Kidd, endured a torn ACL. As a result, his estimated time out of the ring could be anywhere from ten months to one full year. It's tough for wrestlers to be away from the business for that long - not counting the rehabilitation course - but I think this is the perfect opportunity to use kettlebells. These very weights could be used to assist the return to the ring that much more.

I'm sure people who are unaware of the weights are questioning just how kettlebells could be used on the matter. Well, if you look to fitness authorities such as Lorna, you may see just how well they fit the wrestling business in general. These weights require a series of motions to use them to their fullest and they aren't stuck to a certain stationary motion. When you think about it, this level of variety fits the athletic profession in question, perhaps better than any other.

It may take an insane amount of time to recover from an injury. Depending on how badly a muscle is torn or a bone is broken, it's not uncommon for people to be out of action for a year. It's tough for them to steer clear of physical activity. However, what if I told you that kettlebells can help the rehabilitation process along much more steadily? It's easy for them to work at their own pace and not have to put themselves at risk of further injury.

Perhaps the biggest reason why I can recommend this form of exercise above any other is just how accessible it is. Even if someone is making efforts to recover, it's still plausible that they can work out since the weights are so versatile. One can easily get a good day's work out in at home since the weights are transportable and easy to carry from one place to another. Since a wrestler wouldn't have to leave their house in order to stay in shape, it stands as another reason to utilize them much more frequently.

I feel terrible for Kidd and my only expectation is that he recovers quickly and comes back rejuvenated because he deserves it. He's one of the most efficient performers I've seen in today's wrestling landscape. Even though he may be overlooked because of a shorter size, for instance, there's no question that his level of talent is quite high. Maybe if he were to stay in shape during his time away from the ring, these unique weights would be fantastic.
