What’s the Difference Between VIKB & ReCOMP?

OK, so today let’s answer the BIG QUESTION…

What’s the difference between ReCOMP and VIKB?

There are 2 major differences…

But in case you want the quick and dirty version, here you go…

1. ReCOMP is more INTENSE.

Intensity can be measured several different ways, but the 2 most common in our context are…

a) doing more work (ie more reps/sets) in the same amount of time. This is also known as density.


b) using a heavier weight

ReCOMP incorporates BOTH – you get to choose.

The major reason why it’s more intense is because this is a SUMMER PROGRAM. And summer programs call for more intensity because of the way your body processes carbohydrates during the sunnier, warmer months.

I elaborate on this more in the video.

2. ReCOMP is more advanced.

In VIKB I taught you the “Big 6” kettlebell exercises…

  • Swing
  • Squat
  • Clean
  • Press
  • Snatch
  • Get Up

These 6 exercises are the foundational kettlebell exercises.

But in ReCOMP we get a little more involved with more coordinated movements.

You already know that one of them is the Single Arm Clean & Jerk…

…but even before that, you have to master a couple of things before you graduate to LCCJs.

So in ReCOMP I take you a little deeper down the kettlebell rabbit hole.

There is actually ANOTHER MAJOR DIFFERENCE between VIKB and ReCOMP…

But it deserves its own email & video.

So I’ll talk about that in my next email to you.

As always, if you have any questions, let me know.

For now, go watch the video!

Happy Friday!



Just a reminder that my new ReCOMP program goes LIVE next week…

ReCOMP is a Single Kettlebell Program designed to burn fat while strategically adding lean, dense muscle.

ReCOMP uses my “Minimalist Program Design” style to give you the most effective, results-driven workout with minimal time commitment.

That way you can have time to enjoy your summer and not be a prisoner to long workouts.

Here’s to your summer!
