You ever do something someone said would work based
on “science” or “authority” or whatever?
For example, when I was a young man – in my early
20s, I devoured any literature I could get ahold of that
I thought would make me bigger and stronger.
I remember reading “studies” on HMB – a metabolite
of the amino acid leucine – and how it was supposed to
increase lean muscle mass.
The problem turned out to be that the sponsor of the
scientific studies, was also the company that produced
Too bad I didn’t find that out until later.
To say there might have been a conflict of interest here
might be an understatement.
Needless to say, I didn’t gain any lean muscle mass.
I did “gain” a lighter wallet though.
One of those times when there’s a big difference between
theory and practice.
It’s like that quote –
“In theory there’s no difference between theory and practice.
In practice there is.”
Kind of like kettlebell complexes.
Wait – what?
Yeah, I said it –
You know – they’re one of the best ways to burn fat –
Unless your technique sucks.
Then they’re one of the best ways to get injured – quickly.
Look, I love complexes and I’ve written many programs
revolving around complexes.
And here’s the “big but” –
You have to know how to do all these kettlebell exercises –
Especially the double KB exercises correctly and confidently
otherwise you’re just asking for trouble.
So forget the “free KB fat-blasting reports” and do yourself
a favor –
Practice your technique.
Then cut your rest down between sets.
Then do some supersets, some tri-sets, even build yourself
a couple of circuits.
Once you can maintain your technique using these techniques,
then and only then, proceed on to the complexes.
Unsure of the proper kettlebell technique – especially the
double KB lifts?
Don’t know the proper and logical progressions to get you
to be able to not only survive, but thrive from doing complexes?
You’ll find a powerhouse program right here that will prep
you for them.
Theory: Complexes are great for burning fat.
Practice: Make sure your technique is solid and you have a
solid strength base then do your complexes.
P.S. Speaking of “practice” –
If you’re interested in learning advanced double kettlebell
training techniques – I’m holding a workshop in Singapore
in September. More details here.
Hope you can make it.
