“Daddy Day” Workout [INSIDE]

Hey – I know I said I’d try to get some videos done for you yesterday afternoon – didn’t happen. Was spending time with my son. Then I was going to get them done this morning after taking my son to Little Gym, but… It’s turned into a “Daddy Day.” #1 son needed to spend […]

Have you ever had sore elbows or tweaked a biceps on your snatches or cleans? I have. A long time ago before I really knew what I was doing. Dalton had the same issues and wanted to know how to fix it. It’s really simple. It’s called “Taming the Arc.” And this is what it […]

Q: “Why Do You Hate Swings?”

I’m sure that’s one of the questions that probably runs through your mind sometimes reading my newsletters. Quite frankly, I wouldn’t blame you for asking that. The truth is I DO HATE swings, but not for the reason you might think. (More on that in a minute…) Swings are an excellent KB exercise – one […]

This Is Not “EXTREME!” But It Still Works Great For Fat Loss [TEMPLATE]

Life is busy. For example, I’m in school or traveling to school 6 hours a day and I have 3 businesses to work in / on AND I have a 3-yr old and a 5-month old. So I’m pretty swamped. That’s enough for me for right now. I’m sure that’s nothing compared to what you […]

Two Weeks. 5 Steps. Are You Ready??

Hard to believe it’s only 2 weeks away. Especially with snow on the ground here in the “high desert.” (Seriously – that’s my backyard.) Memorial Day that is. The “official” start of summer. And all those beer commercials with guys throwing the football on the beach with abzz. And the women in all laughing and […]

“How Can I Eat Lots Of Carbs And STILL Lose Fat?”

After last night’s workout I was famished. Squats do that to me. Make me want to eat everything in sight. Unfortunately, dinner was decidedly lower carb than I needed. A little bit of rice, a little bit of beans. So after I put our son to bed I went to the ol’ Kings Soopers (yeah, […]

What’s The “Best” Fat Loss Program? Swings Or…?

The best fat loss program I ever personally did was back in 1996. It got me to single digit bodyfat – LOW single digit bodyfat… Stage-ready-shredded bodyfat levels. You know how I did it? Low rep Olympic lifts and their variations. Snatch pulls, clean pulls, front squats, push presses, presses. Low, low reps. 1 to […]

KB Workouts That Don’t Make No Cents (Or Is It “Scents,” Or…)

There’s a link going around on the ol’ Book of Faces right now about stupid things going on in the “Judgment Free Zone” – a.k.a. Planet Sabotage… Uh, I mean, Planet Fitness. Things like Pizza night, offering candy, signs on the walls telling people not to throw candy wrappers behind dumbbell racks and so on… […]

The Fat Loss Myth That Just Won’t Die (Don’t Fall For This)

*This is a true story. The names have been changed to protect the guilty.* Last week I had to make a run to the bank to make a wire transfer. I shouted down my usual banker – a young guy named Jonathan. He and I got talking. “What’s new?” he asked. “Not much…” I responded. […]

What Is The “Quasimodo” Press

You remember Quasimodo – the Hunchback of Notre Dame, right? He was physically deformed yet strong as an ox. He swung from bell rope to bell rope ringing the bells and fell in love with the beautiful Esmerelda. Well there’s a “Quasimodo” Press too. Although not deformed and not in love with Gypsy street dancer, […]
