Start Over Tomorrow?

You know the best part of banging your head against the wall? Stopping. Get it? (That’s one of my favorites.) If you want to get leaner but haven’t yet – your pants are still tight and you still get that roll (or two) when you sit down – You have to stop doing what you’re […]

Which One Of These 2 Press Grips Do You Use?

It’s funny how just simple little tweaks in what you’re already doing can make the biggest changes in your outcome. For example: About 10 years ago (Dang! Has it been that long already??) I fell into the trap of looking down at the floor on my ballistics – both for set up and each rep […]

The “Magic Pill?”

Hope you had a fantastic weekend. We did. Well, except I made a critical mistake in my training. And it showed up in a lack of output – some missed lifts – which almost never happens. It was a “rookie mistake” – here’s what I did. I’ve set myself some strength goals but I didn’t […]

Why Your _______ STILL Hurts…

I’m no doctor, nor, as I often joke at my workshops, do I play one on TV. However, that being said, I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night have studied anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics for the better part of the last 2 decades, and based on 20+ years of experience here in […]

“New?”

I have to chuckle to myself sometimes when I get customer service emails. I got an email this morning from someone who bought my rapid fat loss program, Kettlebell Burn EXTREME!. He said, he read the materials this weekend, but since he’s been around the KB community for awhile, there was nothing “new” to him. […]

I Was Wrong… :-)

I used to believe and publicly advocate for only working out – or training – whatever you want to call it – 3 days a week. I think that’s pretty good if you’re going to commit to a full hour or so on those days. However, I think for many, if not most, that can […]

The New Year’s Workout Lie

We’re a week away. From what? That time of year. You know – When most people quit on their New Year’s Resolution to “get in shape.” Gyms empty out and kettlebells start collecting dust. All because of a LIE. What lie? The lie that there’s something “magical” about the New Year. “Magically” all that junk […]
