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
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
Couldn't resist using this neat photo of the pyramid at the Louvre. Having recently become 41, I remember seeing this interesting structure during its construction (I was VERY young, maybe 7 or 8 at the time). The massive excavation was fascinating, and I would only see the completion of it many years later in the late 90s. "Oh, so that's how it turned out!" The sense of scale … [Read more...] about Strength Pyramid: A Simple Kettlebell and Calisthenics Combination
First off, this is going to be brief. It's one of those weeks. And with the PCC in NYC coming up this weekend I've got quite a lot of stuff to finish up before heading up there. But I've been sitting on this OODA loop workout for too long, and want to share at least the basics of it with you. It's from a strategy portion of an upcoming project that I'm finishing, so putting it … [Read more...] about 100 Little Things Kettlebell OODA Loop Workout, Neuro-Grip Challenge is in Paperback!
In the course of working on a top secret special video project (hinted at the other day on social media) I've recently reintroduced the sumo squat back into my regular workout rotation. For fun, I decided to add it into this little 12 minute EMOM workout - I basically did it as a break, as there is more workout to come this evening with some skill and more max strength work. … [Read more...] about A Fast and “Foxy” EMOM Workout for Kettlebells and Bodyweight
It's been humid... REALLY annoyingly hot and humid for this time of year. Unfortunately I keep forgetting that. Last week a friend and I decided to go and do a favorite kettlebell challenge, the SSST (Secret Service Snatch Test) and it was so humid that it even tore up her hands which I previously thought were made of some kind of teflon material. As for myself, I could … [Read more...] about Short on Time Kettlebell Workout Variations…
It's been an interesting weekend... getting a lot done, maybe a little too much because as the sun started to go down today I found myself wanting to go outside and play for lack of a better term. Some may refer to this as a "workout" but considering what I did and how fun it was I think it was more like a slightly more grown up version of playing in the yard. Unfortunately, … [Read more...] about A Short But Fun Underground Strength Inspired Exercise Break… After an Adventure!
It's a Monday after a holiday weekend - a holiday notorious for various forms of overindulgence here in the USA... I didn't, but many people did. I did however get my sleep schedule all out of whack (which has the fortunate side effect of helping my writing/proofreading/editing abilities). A more unfortunately side effect is the endless stacks of books/papers/etc all over the … [Read more...] about A Count to 100 Kettlebell and TRX Workout
