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
A few days ago I had the honor of being the first ever guest on PCC Team Leader, Matt Shifferle's Red Delta Project Podcast. Once again, as when he was recently the guest on MY podcast, we had a ton of fun discussing some of our favorite topics, calisthenics, the PCC, great food, training strategies and more. At the risk of bragging, it seems like we get around to some … [Read more...] about I was a guest on the Red Delta Project Podcast, Plus a Bodyweight Only Workout, and a Video

This workout certainly isn't for everyone since it uses a "found staircase" I suppose a stepmill could be used for it, but part of the "fun" of the workout is self-regulating how fast you're taking the stairs, and sharing heckles with your training partner related to who has the inside or outside of the staircase.... Here in Florida we don't have many buildings with a ton of … [Read more...] about Upstairs, Downstairs… a Workout for Kettlebells, Stairwell, and Bodyweight
It'd been a "Monday" for sure, and a friend of mine was definitely up for a challenge so we headed out to the park a good bit later than originally intended, but that's ok. I'm not opposed to occasionally (or somewhat often) working out somewhat late at night. Hince the silly owl graphic there on the left. This workout was heavily influenced and inspired by Zach Even-Esh's … [Read more...] about Stress Destroyer Workout for Kettlebell and Pull Up Bar
Hurrah for the great weather this past weekend! Even though I got a lot of work done, I wanted to be sure to enjoy the outdoors a bit too. A lot of cooking was done (new simple recipe for you this week) and if you see the recipe I posted over the weekend, you might see where some of the extra energy came from. Having recently purchased my friend's unlocked iPhone5s, it was … [Read more...] about A Workout for Leftover Energy…
Not always a big fan of crowds, so when my neighborhood gets overrun with partiers I usually end up hunkering down and getting a lot of work done. The cost of this is at some point I need to really jump around and burn off some extra energy. Since I’ve been developing recipes I wanted to work up a good appetite to try them too. This past week I had the opportunity to teach a … [Read more...] about My Not-So-Secret Secret Workout Protocol…
After doing a whole lot of computer-based work this past weekend, on it was time to catch up with a little Sunday Funday type workout. It was going to be fairly advanced, but that's not a bad thing... After a Primal Move warmup we got right into it by setting a timer for 5 minutes and grabbing the appropriate kettlebell for the RKC kettlebell snatch test-- 100 snatches in … [Read more...] about A Sunday Funday Workout Outdoors with Kettlebells, Ultimate Sandbags, and a NEW?

While my super awesome fellow personal trainer friend Alicia Streger was out of town yesterday, I had the opportunity to lead her 6PM fitness bootcamp and her 7PM kettlebell bootcamp. WHAT A CHALLENGE! :) I love challenges though. Problem was, traffic and closed roads fought me all the way there and by the time I had arrived (with maybe 2-3 minutes to spare) I was staring down … [Read more...] about Substitute taught a friend’s fitness bootcamp classes last night – and here’s their kettlebell workout!
Since the past few small group workouts have been pitched towards a PCC direction (working with the progressions on many of the main moves), it was time to bring out an old but challenging friend... The kettlebell walking see-saw press. This often humbling drill is a good way to get some extra mileage off of a pair of lighter kettlebells which moght have been collecting dust. … [Read more...] about A Workout with an Old Friend… The Kettlebell Walking See-Saw Press
