[STEP 4 – Semi-Automatic Fat Loss] – “I Pity The Fool!”

Being a child of the 70s and 80s, that quote is burned in my my brain. It is of course, from the iconic Mr. T – “BA Baracus” on The A-Team. I LOVED that show. Never could quite figure out how they could fling open the back doors of the van, and shoot at the […]

CONVENIENCE: Enemy Of RESULTS?

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I just love a nice dinner out. “Nice” being the operative word. Wait, what’s this have to do with KB training? I’ll get there – hang tight.

Q: “What Do You Do On Conditioning Days?”

This was a question I got from Howard the other day. I’m not sure if his question was for me personally or a general one. So, let me answer both: Me? Not much. Hate conditioning.
