Finisher Friday – The Perfect Workout

It’s a cold day in Toronto with the windchill around -25 degrees Celcius (which is 13 below 0 Fahrenheit).  Pretty cold for riding a bike, but I somewhat enjoy being outside (regardless of the temperature) because I’ve found that I don’t have as severe a case of the "winter blahs"…

Finisher Friday – It’s All About The Abs

 For some reason this week’s been exhausting for me.  Lots to do on the home front with casts and stomach flu.  Haven’t gotten a lot of sleep this week and it’s starting to take it’s toll on me. Nonetheless, I’ve put together one of my favorite finishers to date for…

The Rule of 165

I don’t know about you, but it’s around this time of the year that I start to experience "Resolution Hangover". As soon as the New Year rolls around I hit the ground running on my goals and try to do my best to keep up the momentum.  I’m on schedule,…

NEW VIDEO: Double Clean & Burpee Finisher

 I’m just about to wrap things up for the day here at KettlebellWorkouts.com Headquarters – which could be any number of indie espresso shops here in the Greater Toronto Area. Before I take off and digitally disconnect for the weekend, I wanted to make sure that I posted this video…

Q & A: Sore Lower Backs and A Strong Military Press

I’m dipping into the mailbag today to answer some questions about kettlebell training. These questions all come from Gregory H who emailed me a couple of days ago. Q: I notice after a kettlebell workout my lower back is sore/fatigued and "sensitive".  Is that indicative of bad form?  Is it…
