We love kettlebell carries here at Elite Physical Therapy and Sports Performance as they have numerous benefits to our patients and athletes including:
- improved shoulder girdle and trunk stability
- increased grip strength
- improved core control and strength
My current PT student, Mitch Babcock, has brought some new ideas to the table to make our carries even more challenging as far as the stability demands go so thought I’d share those with you.
