Andrea Du Cane's awesome Kettlebell Goddess Workout DVD (run time: 2 hours, 25 minutes)
I have a real love of heavy single
Other things to consider when choosing yourfor this workout: if you go lighter, then really focus on your skills, making every rep super perfect while minimizing rest/breaks.
Once again, a terrible leave of abscence... I hope that none of you have had the flu this season but I got hit by a real hum-dinger of one. I had just returned home from a fantastic adventure that I wanted to tell you all about, but quickly had to put that on hold as I only had the energy to do the most basic of work stuff (to you know, keep the lights on and the rent paid). The good news is, I was still able to complete a couple of really fun interviews for Dragon Door and have saved notes from all the stuff I didn't have a chance to write up for you yet (including some super fun workouts).
Simple and fast low carb (keto actually) alternative to crumpets or English muffins. 3 net carbs for the entire recipe. ...and I tend to eat the whole recipe...
are FINALLY back in stock, honestly, I was pretty bummed out that they were not available for Christmas gift giving. But they are back now! Ever since I first tried the rough prototypes (one was even slightly not level) back in 2013 or so, I've used them in my training. And yes, if you go to the page you'll see someone very familar in the demo photos. :)
Here's an unboxing video of, along with putting a friend of mine on the spot. Thankfully he was a good sport and did a great job. Don't let him (or me) fool you, these things require a LOT of control, proprioception, strength etc. Start easy, even if that means getting comfortable with knee push-ups, putting one leg out at a time, and planks. Honestly, those are great drills anyway even after you can do more fancy stuffl. I've become fond of burpees for a short set or two, just for the shock factor! :) Definitely not for beginners... don't do it!!!
Anyway I'll will be making morefocused how-tos for you, but in the mean time...
So, I have a weird habit of taking on (or creating) a smaller project to break up a larger project. It means I basically do "work" as a "break" and is part of the reason I get a lot of various things done in a small amount of time. Many years ago I discovered that I don't so much need or want a "break", it's more that I need a change of subject. A mental flavor changer...* One such project I have right now is for a friend who is very gifted with the tough love and real world motivation. This project has had a very welcome side effect of being very motivating.
Now, I'm a self-starter, always have been, but we can all use some help. This has inspired me to get a little more organized. At the same time I'd been listening to James Altucher's The Choose Yourself Guide to Wealth on Audible (here's a free trial and two free audiobooks)... so it all kind of converged over the holiday weekend. I like that book because it seems to support some of my odd behaviors and life choices. That's nice for a change.
Anyway, after eating not one but TWO slices of my friend's gluten free (but not free of anything else) delicious peanut butter pie on Christmas, along with a whole lot of leg of lamb and smoked turkey, I really felt like I needed to get out and put those calories to work the next day. I also wanted to mess with my own head.
