Carlos here. Just wanted to let you all know that I’ve decided to go for the kettlebell journey. So far, all good. I did my research about this style of training and let me tell you freeletics has covered everything in this journey.
The two main focus in this journey are muscular endurance and strength. Compared to other comments in this forum about this journey, the coach works perfectly (as always) it is really smart and it does make changes when you request them. The only thing I would suggest is to go to YouTube to watch certified coaches sharing tips about the movements, in addition to watch the Freeletics videos.
Anyways, really good journey I give it 5 starts so far. If someone wants to give it a try, deff go for it!!
Hi, @Carlos1 thanks for your feedback!
Would you say this journey works your whole body?
I am afraid of lacking some chest development as there is no kettlebell chest movement. What’s your thought?
Hi Tom, yes it definitely does. The coach will include lots of push ups.
Also upper chest is worked significantly well by presses.
The only thing is that doesn’t include pull ups only kettlebell rows. However you can always add any excercise from the explore tab. I always do that with pull ups cuz I suck on pull ups
Hope this helps!
It absolutely does thanks!
Might be a good option to alternate between this one and the hybrid strength journey
Carlos, don’t you think a journey is only a good journey by showing a good form? You shouldn’t have to go to You Tube is my opinion. I do Freeletics for years and it really helped me, just little disappointed about this journey…
The kettlebells journey is indeed awesome. However, 2 areas which I think Freeletics can improve upon:
- The videos showing the movements may not provide enough information and tips. I felt the need to supplement with Youtube videos by fitness coaches.
- Somehow, I don’t think the whole journey works enough on the abs.
Other than these, I enjoyed the journey very much, as it helped strengthen me while often providing good cardio training.
