Keeping KB’s In Their Rightful Place

One of the most alluring things about the kettlebell is it’s simplicity. When it first came out it was marketed as a “one-stop-shop” for “extreme fitness.” Along with that, was the whole “time-efficiency” thing.

3 NON-Exercise “Hacks” To Accelerate Fat Loss

When you think of “losing fat” do you immediately think of doing more swings? Or going on a diet? Here’s a shocking thought for you (at least it was for me not too long ago): What if in our quest for more swings, more protein, and to “eat like our ancestors” (Whatever the heck that […]
