A Savvy “Holiday Crush” Training Plan…

I’ll make no bones about it – I like to lead a very controlled life. I do the best I can to plan everything out because I live on a very tight schedule. Unfortunately, that tight schedule doesn’t leave much room for error. For example, over the past 7-14 days, my main website crashed, losing […]

Stupid Human Exercise Tricks

Don’t be this guy – LOL: This just cracks me up that I used to do some of this stuff. We were never dumb enough to put a barbell across our backs (at least I wasn’t) but we would do stupid things like jump up onto these balls and then do squats. Looking back, I […]

Post-Season = “Most” Season?

I don’t know about you, but I sometimes feel guilty about taking time off from training. I know I shouldn’t. My body needs it. My mind needs it. Yet somehow, sometimes I find myself influenced by “the herd” and don’t want to relent. “Relentless.” Isn’t that what we’re all supposed to be? “B*llz to the […]

The “Sitting On Your A$$” Workout

It was 3 years ago now. I was overlooking the ocean – drinking in the sound of the waves and watching the sunrise, sipping original Kona coffee – in Paradise no less. I whisked my family away for a working vacation – I was writing a book. Unfortunately or not – I had zero access […]

Athletic Training Strategy To Make Your Life And Workouts Easy (Especially Now)

I came home late Sunday night – around Midnight from a weekend of traveling and presenting. As a result, my son, who’s 3-and-a-half, wanted to play with me pretty much all day yesterday. To say he missed me would be an understatement. Well, we didn’t play ALL day, because I did have some work to […]

A “Stress Free” Alternative To Fat Loss Workouts This Holiday Season

I used to train college athletes for a living. It was a great gig. I learned so much in those brief 3.5 years. It was, in many ways, like drinking from a fire hose combined with trial by fire. For example, I assisted the head strength coach in training the men’s basketball team. I was […]

Sorry About That… Server Issues [HOLIDAY SURVIVAL GUIDE EXTENSION]

If you tried to get your copy of the Kettlebell Secrets Holiday Survival Guide yesterday and got to a screen that looked like this, like one of my customers did: I apologize. I’ve been having server issues all week and they came to a head yesterday. My hosting company “migrated” my sites to a new […]

51%… (Last Day)

What’s that? That’s the percentage of annual weight gain that happens during this time of year. So that means, if you gained 5 pounds last year, then 2.5+ you more than likely gained over the Holidays between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. Here’s another shocking statistic: According the the Centers for Disease Control, in 2012 […]

I.F. For Women?

Got an email from Viv the other day about Intermittent Fasting working for women: “I have a question about IF for women. I have been fasting on and off ally life and I feel great when I have less in my belly. I recently met with a nutritionist and she said that IF doesn’t work […]

Stopping The MADNESS

This time of year can best be described as… INSANE. At least when it comes to food. Many people just “check out.” They feel guilty about eating the foods they want, enjoy, and love. So they eat them anyway and live in denial. Denial that calories don’t matter… … That they won’t add up. … […]
