Kettlebell Complexes – Finisher Friday

 Just about to head out to the -15 degree windchill on my dutch bike (big thanks to Jamie who sent me a link on how to "build" your own snow tires!). I wanted to make sure I posted the latest "Finisher Friday" video for you.   I only used a…

Kettlebells in the Fireplace

Got home this afternoon from a treacherous bike ride with the house nice and clean.  I figured it would be a good time to give you a quick tour of our living room and training area and to share some very "excuse-busting" advice….     Enjoy your day, Chris Lopez,…

Going Beyond Kettlebell Training

3 Problems With Fat Burning Workouts

*****Editor’s Note: Today’s post is a guest article written by fat loss expert and Men’s Health Contributing Writer, Craig Ballantyne*****   While interval training is better than cardio, "generic" interval training is not as good as *they* make it out to be. Seriously. By *they*, I mean the brand new…

Interval Training Using Kettlebells

It’s been a challenging few weeks at my house.  Rozanne and I have had to deal with EVERYONE being sick – including ourselves – with the youngest one being hospitalized for a couple of days while he was trying to get over pneumonia.  Poor little guy lost about a 1/4…
