The 3-Tiered Hierarchy Of Strength?

Controversy. Gotta love it. I was involved in some over the course of the weekend in a private group I belong to. What’s really interesting is how many people justify their positions on what they “feel” or “believe” versus what they can prove with fact. Some of the responses were purely visceral. No facts provided to […]

“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 […]

Your Kettlebell Upgrade?

I had to travel back to North Carolina last weekend. The way I do it drives my wife and my business partner nuts. I typically wait until about 10-14 days for my domestic trips to get my tickets. Why? Because I can usually get cheaper flights. However, this last trip backfired on me – at […]

The Fart Smell In The Kitchen (Offensive: Smell Not Email)

Just before I left last week to head to NC for the OS Level 2 workshop I had to stop over at my buddy Mike’s. He’s my insurance agent and I needed to sign my new life insurance policy paperwork to activate the policy. (Plus I got to pick up the results of my lab […]

“What Do I Do On My “Off” Days?”

“I’m doing X program three days a week. Is it ok to do Y program on my “off” days?” This was a recent forum question about one of my programs. The questioner wanted to combine it with someone else’s program. Before I answer the question specifically – I want to pose a question back to you […]

Do KB Workouts REALLY Make You “Tough?”

What I’m about to say may shock you. Here it goes – No. Not really. Sure, they can… … By the sheer act of showing up when you don’t want to workout cause you’re tired, or whatever. But there’s a BIG problem with KB workouts that don’t lend themselves to developing mental toughness – One […]

Which Is Better – Strength Or Strength-Endurance?

That is certainly a question some are asking these days. Is it better to lift a heavy weight – some heavy KBs for a few reps or lifting moderate KBs for higher reps? When I first got into KB lifting back in 2002 it was for one very specific reason: To help my clients with […]

“Next Level” KB Training?

Many of us – maybe even you – are always looking to take our game to that proverbial and sometimes elusive Next Level. Be it our careers, hobbies, personal relationships, education, or whatever, if you search for it, you can always find a Next Level for pretty much whatever it is you’re interested in. There’s […]

The “Workman’s Approach” To KB Training

I’m in Vega$ this weekend. Taking a class (love being a student) and got to thinking about why so many people fail on KB programs. Sometimes it’s the program. For some reason, people become KB Instructors and they just think they can throw exercises, sets and reps at someone and “POOF!” – magic occurs. Student/client/customer […]

A House Built On Sand… [VIDEO]

You ever hear that parable about the 2 guys who built their houses? One guy built his house on the sand, by the shore and got it done in short order. Then he put his feet up, kicked back in his beach chair, and sipped his fruity cocktails – the ones with the little umbrellas […]
