Q: The Single BIGGEST Factor Determining Your Workout Results?

Continuing on from the Italy theme over the last week or so, one of the “mini-lectures” I gave during the “Kettlebell STRONG!” workshop was the single biggest factor that determined workout results. Beyond the mere act of showing up… We’re well past that. That’s for the novices. Not for the focused, serious trainee. I can’t […]

“Non-Moving” MetCon??

Phew! Kinda tired this morning from that quick trip to Italy. Got in early this morning and then got up early to get myself back on track with my normal schedule. And that’s what I want to challenge you on today – Your “normal” schedule. Most people’s “normal” kettlebell workout schedule includes some sort of […]

The Thing I Love Most About Ye Olde Cattle-Ball

I’m sitting here at the Venice airport thinking about the past week. It was a GREAT week. I flew over here to teach an Original Strength workshop on Saturday and a “Kettlebell STRONG!” workshop on Sunday. Both were received incredibly well. But that’s not really the point. The point is what kettlebells have allowed me […]

What Is It You REALLY Want?

Greetings from Italy! I’m heading home tomorrow. This has been an amazing trip! Food, friends, fun. It’s all here. Isn’t that what life is about? Partially – there’s family too – and they’re not here. Which begs a question: What is it you REALLY want out of life? The reality it that your kettlebell workouts […]

How To Make Every Sunday Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day to you if you’re a Dad and celebrating it! I won’t lie – I’m sad. I’m away from my kiddos – and I miss them. Terribly. (I was on the plane over here to Italy and there was a family of 6 – 2 parents and 4 kids and the littlest one […]

How To “Cheat” On Your Diet All Weekend Long… And STILL Lose Fat.

Check this out (turn on your “enable images”): That was the main portion of my dinner last night. That’s about a 2.5 pound T-bone and a 1/2 pound sirloin to go with it. As an appetizer I had a form of thinly sliced meat similar to prosciutto called Bresaola. Then home-made pasta as a first […]

Bon Giorno! Italian Coffee And A 115lb Fat Loss (WTH??)

That’s Italian for “Good Day!” – at least the Bon Giorno part. The Italian Coffee part?  Mmmm… Love the Italian coffee – Especially Espresso – Which is what I had as soon as I got to the hotel here in Vincenza. Unfortunately, I got here a little later than expected because my second bag was […]

Kettlebell Investing? (The Vanderbilt Method)

I’m sitting here on the plane 30,000 feet above the ground en route to Italy. Ahhh… Italia… Bellissimo… I’m thoroughly enjoying my extra leg room in my free Emergency Exit window seat (Big shout out to US Airways – other airlines charge for this!) and looking out at the patchwork quilt below that is the […]

Minimalist V. Maximalist KB Workouts?

Ciao! Hope you had a great weekend. (I said “Ciao!” cause I’m in Italy in my mind. LOL.) I did. Lots of family time. Quality family time too. Speaking of Italy, I’m heading over there in 2 days to teach an Original StrengthFoundations Level 1 workshop and a “Kettlebell STRONG!” workshop. Both will be awesome. […]

“It’s My Fault.”

Having a 4 year old is tough. Especially when he’s stubborn and hyper-intelligent. Talking with my son and directing his behavior is often times like playing chess – I have to anticipate his responses in advance because he’s into “gamesmanship” – He’s always trying to do the next thing… “Then I’ll…” One of the things […]
