—————————————————————————— The Simplest Way To Build Armor/Put On Muscle —————————————————————————— A couple of years ago, I went to visit my best friend from high school.

Why Dan John *Loves* Bodybuilding And You Should Too, Part 1

Everybody loves Dan John. (Hmmm… maybe that should be a TV show…) And if you don’t know Dan, you should. He’s like the uncle everybody loves. In fact, I sometimes call him “Uncle Dan.” He’s just a real likable, smart, and wise guy (wait, just read that after writing that – not a WiseGuy like […]

Who Is “V.G” And Why Does He Hate Kettlebells So Much?

You know, there are a lot of kettlebell “haters” out there. A. Lot. I think it’s probably pure jealously. But not in the case of “V.G.” He was actually an early mentor of mine. Not only does he hate kettlebells, but barbell, dumbbells, and pretty much any piece of equipment… … when used out of […]

I don’t know how this started, but it did. Deep inside the bowels (nice visual huh?) of “kettlebell land” somehow exercises get bashed, tossed out, and downright forbidden. Some even think these are proclamations that come from on high with a “Thou shalt not do such-and-such exercise…” They aren’t. In fact, I think most of […]

Don’t Make This (Dumb) KB Workout Mistake…

I’ve got a confession to make. I used to be one of “those” guys. Yeah, one of the ones who said “all” you need is your kettlebell. Well, lemme explain… Before that, I was one of those “Olympic lifts are all you need” guys. And before that, I was one of those “Squat, Bench, and […]

I put it on the blog for you. http://kettlebellsecrets.com/blog It’s actually kind of funny to think that some of the exercises in here are so similar to some of the “mobility” work that’s being recommended today. Obviously […]

The Most UNDERRATED Method For Improving Your Snatch…

I love the Snatch. You should too. It’s a phenomenal lift. It uses the entire body and really smokes the heart and lungs especially when you go either light for high reps or heavy for low reps. And that’s the MOST UNDERRATED method of improving your Snatch. Heavy. Low reps. But don’t you even DARE […]

QnA: Can I Do This Every Day???

The downside I guess to occasionally sending out a cool free workout is that it may be taken the wrong way. The complex workout I sent out the other day had that effect. Diane wrote, “LOVED THIS WORKOUT!! ESPECIALLY AFTER FINISHING UP THE KB EXTREME PROGRAM. COULD I DO THIS WORKOUT 4-5 DAYS A WEEK […]

Why You’re Not Seeing The Results You Expect From Your KB Workouts

Alright, no messing around today. Going straight for the jugular. It’s not that you’re a bad person or kill kittens or anything like that. Nope. It’s the “F-word” my friend. No, not THAT “F-word” although that may slip from your mouth after you finish reading this email. See, most people who are using KBs – […]
