5 Reasons Why Training With KBs For Strength Sucks…

When I was younger, I used to engage in useless debates about why/if the barbell was better than kettlebells for “pure” strength training. You know – absolute or maximum strength. (As if that’s the ONLY form of strength there is.) Funny thing is, nobody ever has a comeback when I say, “If you could clean […]

“Best” KB Exercise You’re Not Doing?

I don’t know about you, but I like “simple.” I used to think I liked complicated until it got… complicated. Know what I mean? For example, I tend to wear the same types of clothes pretty much every day – t-shirt and jeans and minimalist footwear. I pretty much the same foods: coconut oil, eggs, […]

Clean V. Swing?

MTV back in the day used to have a claymation program called “Celebrity Death Match” where they’d pit celebrities against each other. Like the one with Arnold Schwarzenegger v. Sylvester Stallone.

Stupid Human Exercise Tricks

Don’t be this guy – LOL: This just cracks me up that I used to do some of this stuff. We were never dumb enough to put a barbell across our backs (at least I wasn’t) but we would do stupid things like jump up onto these balls and then do squats. Looking back, I […]

The BEST MetCon Program… Ever? [TEMPLATE]

If you’ve been around for awhile you’ll know that I’m not a big fan of MetCon – or Metabolic Conditioning – or what some people call “cardio.” Why not? Because it’s heavily abused and there’s no apparent rhyme or reason to much of what’s foisted on us in the name of conditioning. Most of my […]

How To Turn You KB Workout Addiction Into Non-Stop Progress [TEMPLATE]

Ok, I’ll finally admit it… I’m a “workout addict.” I’ve always loved to work out. Or in my case, train. (The delineation between the two is that training presumes a distinct purpose.) Why? I don’t know. Maybe because it helps me focus and get some of my energy out. Maybe because it just feels good […]
