Why Facebook Is Killing Your KB Workouts

I’m not shy about saying I’m not a big fan of Facebook. I only use it for business purposes. I have a few groups that I interact with. And admittedly, I have to be careful when I’m on there and done asking or answering questions otherwise it’s easy to get sucked into a vortex of […]

I was doing a podcast last week with Mike Connelly from Rebell Conditioning (Thanks again, Mike!) when a really good question came up that I don’t think I’ve ever addressed before.
