Hinted at this one a little last week - then after a few more conversations with folks realized that I likely need to have another post really giving the ways that this kind of workout can be useful especially for those who are preparing to pass the RKC Snatch test. It solves just one piece of the puzzle but there are several important pieces that must be in place to … [Read more...] about Advanced Kettlebell Challenge Workout For 1/12/2020
Normally my Saturday is a loose-ends tying, wandering around and figuring stuff out day (as you may have noticed via Instagram). That's still on the schedule, but given holiday demands, my fellow type-a maniac advanced client and I moved our normal "Sunday challenge" to Satuday instead. While it was about 38 degrees when we got started, I knew the light hoodie I was wearing … [Read more...] about Pre-Holiday Park Challenge Workout
All my lady fit-pro friends seem to have photos where they're laughing about a mystery thing. Here's mine... actually, since it's a video frame grab, you can be pretty sure I'm laughing at myself. I've been scrubbing through old footage finding things that need to be edited so I can share them and ran across this little EMOM workout explanation I'd meant to put with an … [Read more...] about Kettlebell and Sandbag EMOM Workout with Video, Plus Weighing the Lifting Stones!
Forgive me and my terrible sense of humor... but I had to make that silly video thumbnail: If you're not so inclined to read the background story of this workout, click here and go right to it. No, you will not hurt my feelings by skipping my stories. HAHA :) As you may have gathered, the workload over here recently has been... prodigious... Now, I'm not complaining... … [Read more...] about New Tire, New EMOM Workout, Loads of FUN!
It's "been a week" and while my immediate area was spared the real wrath of hurricane Michael (well tropical storm by the time it reached us up here), clients and friends in the did lose power for a bit from downed trees and high winds. In fact, those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen the "story" photo I posted from a business meeting that continued in the dark, … [Read more...] about Backyard Challenge Crusher: Kettlebell, Pull-Ups, Mobility, Calisthenics Workout
There's not a lot of truth in the phrase "Circle of Vom" as it seemed to have the opposite effect on my workout partner... she showed up wobbly from a super stressful week but afterwards was feeling better than ever. I hope this workout has the same effect on you if you try it! Warm up with Joint Mobility 3x Rounds: 1/1 Get-ups, at the top, do three … [Read more...] about High Intensity Circuit…
The people who train with me tend to be extremely motivated. This is good, I am encouraging of course, but I'm not a cheerleader. We don't hand out trophies here all willy-nilly. Once in a while I'll have a local client who will either show up with a high level of athleticism and/or really take to the training in a big way--then we keep training, but I offer a free "work out … [Read more...] about Backyard Brawl: Kettlebell and Bodyweight Workout
Sometimes it's helpful to have a workout that doesn't involve a ton of precise movements. Not all the time, but after a hard week or a set of high cognitive load tasks sometimes it's good to just go hard. This workout has outdoor and indoor variations, since everyone seems to be dealing with heatwaves and other challenges. I made up the fan bike version since I decided to test … [Read more...] about Oh HILL no… or Hill Yes – a Hill Sprints Workout (with an indoor alternative)
It might look cute but... it's not for beginners! Each time an egg is found, check the chart and put in some reps. Feel free to swap the burpees for another power move like a few tire flips, a sled push, etc. Be sure you don't hide too many eggs... We plan to hide 4 per color so that the totals come to 40 burpees, 20 per side kettlebell presses, 60 kettlebell swings … [Read more...] about Easter Egg Hunt Kettlebell Workout
A while back, I nicknamed a mis-matched kettlebell carry "Strange Friends". Not only are the two kettlebells used different sizes, they're also carried in different ways. It's a physical and mental challenge to say the least. I first tried it after doing a kettlebell windmill with a lighter kettlebell on top and a heavier kettlebell below. After picking both up I thought, "Huh, … [Read more...] about The Strange Friends Kettlebell Workout and Details on the Dragon Door Sale Page Kettlebells
